Our pal Chris Morris said
"Live! Beg, Borrow & Steal" showcases the Plimsouls at the height of their power, tearing the roof off and on the verge of starting a riot on the old Sunset Strip. Recorded at the Whisky A Go Go on October 31, 1981, this previously unreleased 18 song live album includes many of the PLIMSOULS classics as well as plenty of surprises. It has been stunningly remastered, features previously unpublished and gorgeous photos by photographer Bob Matheu. Includes 2 songs with guest appearance by the Fleshtones.
Formed in 1978 by Peter Case (vocals, guitar) following his departure from the Nerves and the Breakaways, with Louie Ramirez (drums), Dave Pahoa (bass), and Eddie Muñoz (guitar), the Plimsouls effectively blended roots, British Invasion and garage rock into one unique soul-punk, garage-pop combo. "They boasted a soulful front man and gifted songwriter in Peter Case; a brittle, unconventional lead guitarist in Eddie Muñoz; and a gutsy, power-packed rhythm section in bassist Dave Pahoa and drummer Lou Ramirez. The ‘Souls didn’t just replicate the cliches of power pop, as so many others did – they, and especially Case, were intent on putting their own imprint on the rock and R&B styles they derived their sound from. Their keen originality and their ‘let’s-rock’ attitude removed them from the run of the mill. Despite the misguided notions of observers intent upon categorization, the Plimsouls were always their own men."
