May 29th, 2008

Episode 77 of 429 episodes

NOTE: This live concert recording contains explicit language that is not suitable for all audiences. In the late 1970s, D.C.-based band Urban Verbs was snapped up by a major label to become the "next big thing" in the burgeoning New Wave scene. It was a demo tape produced by Brian Eno that got them the attention of Warner Bros. However, after two albums, the label unceremoniously dropped Urban Verbs and the band broke up soon thereafter. The group recently reunited for one show only at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C.
