Recorded at the band’s show on May 6, 1983 in Austurbæjarbíó, Reykjavik, Iceland, the gig showcases some new material that would surface on Perverted By Language later the same year. It is an exemplary document of the band at that time, featuring the fabled line-up of Mark E. Smith / Steve Hanley / Paul Hanley / Karl Burns and Craig Scanlon.
