“Maybe sixty seconds into the first song, it began to rain food: sandwiches, half-eaten drumsticks, watermelon and cantaloupe rinds, banana peels,” remembers Keith Morris, of Black Flag’s performance at Polliwog Park in 1979. Here, he ducks the raining missiles of food hurdled by offended family picnickers (Spot).

We played a gig with Spinal Tap, Slayer and the Blasters and wrecked the place! That night we were UNTOUCHABLE! We were in a zone that nobody could get near! John Doe and Jeffrey Lee Pierce both agreed that they’d never seen anything like us. This line up with Earl and Chuck was easily one of my faves!”
