LOUIE of the Week – Vintage Black Flag

Digging into the vintage video clips of the YouTube library, I decided to highlight another nugget from the past for this week’s LOUIE of the Week.

This is Black Flag at the Ukrainian Hall, Los Angeles, December 10, 1982. Dez Cadena, the vocalist for the 1981 Black Flag recording of LOUIE LOUIE (“who needs love when you’ve got a gun…”), was no longer the lead singer with the band, but he did a special performance at this show, introduced by Henry Rollins, who became the longest-running singer with the band.

Here’s another performance of LOUIE LOUIE by Black Flag with Dez, previously noted on this blog. In both of these videos, I have no idea who shot this footage. or who owns it. If you know who owns the material, please send an email to “LOUIE” at LouieLouie.net.
