Synthwave musician, See Thomas Howl, goes back to his punk roots releasing Drunken Angel Live 88'

This awesome live recording goes back to a Jersey club where STH's band opened for Danzig!
It's rough and raw, but if you love this genre - you wouldn't have it any other way. See Thomas Howl has established himself as a synthwave musician with several albums. This is a great throw-back to the beginning of his musical career in a punk band, Drunken Angel. The full release comes out on May 29th, but you can pre-order Drunken Angel Live 88 and check out "The Last Day" track!

If you know him from his many synthwave releases, give this historic punk recording a try. We dig the sound and are looking forward to the full release next week! You can purchase all of See Thomas Howl's albums and EPs on bandcamp

From his press release:
A Long, Long Time ago....At a really cool historic club, I was in a punk band that played Live at City Gardens, in Trenton N.J. on Saturday 09/17/1988. We were called Drunken Angel and We were fortunate enough to open up for Danzig when they were touring to support their debut album which released in August, 1988. The album was the first release on producer Rick Rubin's new label at the time Def American Recordings. I'm releasing some demo tracks as well as the actual live set from that very night.

The set list is as follows:
01:03 -- Run With The Pack
04:12 -- A.W.O.L.
06:36 -- Mean Streets
10:20 -- Be With U
14:19 -- Evil Thought
17:59 -- Borstal Breakout (Sham 69)
20:17 -- The Last Day
25:13 -- Goodbye
