Label Founder Talks About EXODUS' Singer-Less Gig In New York

The makers of "Get Thrashed", the much-anticipated documentary profiling the thrash metal scene of the early Eighties and its impact on the music scene, have posted a one-and-a-half-minute video clip featuring Todd Gordon — who earned his rightful place in the annals of thrash metal's history by signing EXODUS to the label he co-founded in 1984 (Torrid Records) — discussing an early EXODUS show in New York where singer Paul Baloff couldn't quite make it to the gig. Check it out at this location (Windows Media).
