Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide lineup Reading Festival

Geffen Records released an EP in late 1986 to keep the interest in the band alive while the band withdrew from the club scene to work in the studio. The four song EP Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide came out on the ostensibly independent “Uzi Suicide Records” label (which was actually a Geffen subsidiary). Only 10,000 vinyl copies of the EP were produced. On Halloween night in 1986 Guns N’ Roses performed at UCLA’s Ackerman Ballroom as the opening act to Thelonious Monster, The Dickies, and the headlining Red Hot Chili Peppers.
The record was billed as a live recording, although Rose would reveal years later, that it was simulated. The EP consisted of four songs from the band’s demo tapes with overdubbed crowd noise. It contained covers of Rose Tattoo’s “Nice Boys” and Aerosmith’s “Mama Kin”, along with two original compositions: the punk anthem “Reckless Life” and the classic rock inspired “Move to the City”, both of which were co-written by Hollywood Rose’s founding member Chris Weber.
The original vinyl Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide EP has become a valuable and sought after collector’s item, even though the tracks were re-issued two years later on the G N’ R Lies album.
