Revolver has teamed up with The Living, Duff McKagan's early punk band, for an exclusive Translucent Ruby vinyl variant of their newly issued album The Living: 1982. Quantities are extremely limited — so order yours before they're gone!
Before Duff McKagan achieved global rock-star status as a member of L.A. legends Guns N' Roses, the bassist was up in his native Seattle hometown cutting his teeth in the city's hardcore punk scene.
"It was a really magical moment," McKagan told Revolver about his early Eighties punk days playing in outfits like the Fastbacks, 10 Minute Warning and the Living. Now, some of McKagan's earliest work is finally seeing the light of day with the release of The Living: 1982. The new mini-album — which features seven McKagan-penned originals recorded four decades ago when he was still in his teens — will be released on April 16th via Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard's Loosegroove Records.
Today (April 15th) the Living — which featured McKagan, drummer Greg Gilmore (Mother Love Bone), singer John Conte and bassist Todd Fleischman — have shared a preview of the material with the ripping cut "Live By the Gun," which arrives with a video featuring vintage Reagan-era footage.
