Live at Rockpalast is a live album and DVD by the Tyla Gang.
It was recorded in 1978 but was only released in 2014 before the reformed Tyla Gang toured Europe in October and November 2014.
Band leader Sean Tyla used to be a member of Ducks Deluxe and therefore I have to admit a bias in favour of the band.
Songs On Tyla Gang Live at Rockpalast
This has the same songs on the CD and DVD which is something I wish other artists and record companies would do.
1. Flashing In The Subway
2. Styrofoam (a single and perghaps their best known track)
3. The Young Lords (on the album Yachtless)
4. On The Street
5. Suicide Jockey (a single)
6. On Your Way Down
7. It’s Gonna Rain
8. Fireball (cover of the Ducks Deluxe song)

This is good, unpretentious rock & roll. The sound is a bit variable in quality but overall I think it’s well above the acceptable level.
