I'm Gonna Kick 'em Out! // Rare Performance Footage of Wayne Kramer's MC5

Brought to you straight from the source, i.e. the great Wayne Kramer, the world is treated to some new old footage of the legendary MC5 including remastered clips of the band's live performances from 1968 at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago, the Tartar Field show from 1970, and a performance from a club in Paris from 1972.

The texts that follow the clips are Kramer's description lifted from his newly founded YouTube channel where he uploaded the videos.

A true fan favorite! In genuine Motor City fashion, here's the MC5 in an unparalleled afternoon of raw rock and roll as they kick out the jams to the backdrop of a busy Detroit highway. This is the finest quality ever found on the world wide web!
