A rare performance video of The Offspring has surfaced online. The footage is from 1988, when they appeared on a public access TV show called “Rockstock” and they are performing the song “Jennifer Lost the War”, which would be recorded in the following year for their self-titled debut album. You can click here to watch it. The footage was posted on YouTube six months ago and the quality is not that good, but it’s still an interesting video to me.
This the fourth time we’ve shared some rare or never-before Offspring material. Last June, their fansite theoffspring.eu posted three demos from their recording sessions in 1986, then last month, we reported that they were performing a new song called “You Will Find a Way” from their upcoming album, and then a week ago, we reported that they were streaming one of their early demos.
The Offspring are back in the studio recording their follow-up to 2008’s Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace. An early 2012 release date is expected.
