 Kick out the jams, motherfuckers!!!!!!!!!!

Here's another gem from Radio Bremen's vaults. A BIG thank you to Mr. Joerg "It's A Mistake" Sonntag for making this one available.

This one does not contain the officially released version of "Kick Out The Jams" (which you can watch here):

Not only that the audio is completely different, also the band's stage movements as well as their clothes differ (Dennis Thompson: sunglasses/orange coloured T-shirt vs. no sunglasses/black coloured T-shirt; Fred "Sonic" Smith with cap vs. without cap).

The session must have taken place after Michael Davis had left the band (Feb. 13, 1972) and before Beat Club #77 was aired (March 25, 1972).
