The New York Dolls/Heartbreakers guitarist in collaboration with the MC5 guitarist!

Double-LP with five extra ‘Live at Max’s’ tracks, previously only heard on bootleg.

Gatefold sleeve with newly extended notes by Thunders biographer Nina Antonia.

In 1979, JOHNNY THUNDERS, renowned Heartbreakers and New York Dolls guitarist, teamed up with WAYNE KRAMER, also legendary guitarist of Detroit’s seminal MC5, to form ‘GANG WAR’, an alliance that lasted the best part of a year.  Johnny had just released his So Alone album, and Wayne was not long out of jail after serving two of four years for a coke bust.  Although Gang War released no records and were without a label – at the time they were an underground act – in retrospect the collaboration is looked on as a ‘rock fantasy’ supergroup. These live Toronto, Boston & New York recordings bear testimony to this unique partnership between two celebrated rock guitar icons.
