RE-UPLOAD: The Sisters of Mercy - Wembley Arena, London, UK - 24.11.1990 (Flac)


AKA The Satanic Verses

This seems to be a transfer from a tape and not the actual record, the sound is a very good audience recording, but you can notice some hisses and a light distortion in the high pitches. It'a a hell of a good concert anyway, since the band is as tight as they ever were.

01. First & Last & Always
02. Lucretia My Reflection
03. Body & Soul
04. Detonation Boulevard
05. Ribbons
06. Dominion/Mother Russia
07. Flood II
08. Valentine

10. Dr. Jeep
11. Amphetamine Logic
12. Marian
13. Alice
14. Gimme Shelter
15. This Corrosion

Excellent sound. Thanks to the original uploader.

Original  Notes:

Great recording of the "Anima Animus"-Tour. It suffers a bit from the well-known "Italian Radio DJ-problem", but I've decided to leave the comments inside, as he doesn't talk over the songs themselves that much, mostly only at the very beginning/end of them, so I think it's bearable.

This one needed some changes, unfortunately.

xx = released on semi-legal LP 'Love Supreme' and except 'A Love Supreme' also released on semi-legal LP 'Death Party' (this one has nothing to do with the official 'Death Party' release).
See: http://www.gerpotze.com/preachingtheblues/recordings/recordings1983.htm

* Last 11 seconds from track01 merged to track02 as the song already started there (3:22 now).
** Last seconds of this track deleted as 'Fire of Love' already started there (4:01 left).

RE-UPLOAD: Peter Hook's The Light performing Unknown Pleasures - The Music Box, Los Angeles - 11.12.2010 (Flac)



The last date of the american tour of Peter Hook' The Light, setlist consist of Unknown Pleasures plus the JD singles. Very good sound. Thank to the taper for sharing his recording.

Original Info file:

Enthusiastic crowd with a good mix of youngsters and oldsters.
Fantastic recording that clearly reveals when Hooky passed off lead bass duties with a nod to son Jack as I was positioned in front of Hook's bass cabinet whereas Jack's bass was elsewhere and not as pronounced from my vantage point.

Highlight for this taper was version of I Remember Nothing which had an inspired feel of madness compared to other 2010 performances. Perry Farrell danced around like a little kid and thoroughly enjoyed himself while singing Transmission.

For a moment during Ceremony I thought the Hookmeister was gonna have a heart attack as he backed off, grabbed his chest and had to have a swallow of something. But alas, he recovered and we'll no doubt see Closer tour next year. Enjoy it for what it was.

NOTES:

This was my seventh gig of Brendan's 'Ark' tour this year and the first to
take place in my home country! How nice to be only 45 km removed from the
venue for a change.

The family's summer holiday would have been longer by at least a week, had it
not been for this gig. My long-suffering missus agreed to yet another personal
sacrifice in order to allow me to attend this gig. It is truly appreciated, my
dear!

The weather couldn't have been better. Utrecht was basking in gorgeous
sunshine when my friend and I arrived. It was a perfect summer's day.

After a prearranged dinner with kindred spirits from Brendan's on-line forum,
we all headed over to the Domkerk to await the opening of the church doors.

The Domkerk is a truly beautiful building, still very much in active use as a
place of worship. Its atmopsheric interior formed the perfect setting for
Brendan's pensive music.

Tonight saw a different kind of flock gather in the pews, however. Brendan was
headlining the first day of the Summer Darkness festival, fulfilling a dream
of the organisers since the festival's inception.

With a capacity of 650 people, the venue was sold out. It was nice to see so
many people turn out to see Brendan, and a far cry from the 100 person gigs
earlier in the year.

The crowd were a veritable sea of black; hardly surprising, given the nature
of the festival. Some people must have spent the entire day in front of the
mirror, preparing to be seen at their best.

With the audience as resplendent as the church in which they had congregated,
the scene was set. There was a sense of great expectation in the air, the
atmosphere electric and charged with childlike excitement. This gathering of
souls was surely no less faithful than the flock who regularly assemble here
on a Sunday morning. We, too, were here to be edified and to give praise.

After a short introduction by the festival organiser, Brendan took to the
stage. The first detail of note was that Rachel Haden had been replaced on
bass by Rory O'Brien, whose name I may have misspelt.

The sound was crisp and clear throughout the frequency range, even from my
vantage point. The people still seated in the pews, however, were initially
shocked and awed by the high volume. As the drum intro to 'The Arcane' kicked
in, people could be seen clutching their ears. When this was observed by the
sound engineer, he mercifully adjusted the volume for them.

Since the last time I had seen Brendan, Tim Buckley's 'Song To The Siren' had
been added to the set. Gone were 'You Never Loved This City' and 'Voyage Of
Bran'.

'Song To The Siren' was a particularly mesmerising rendition and I could quite
happily have listened to it for another five minutes.

You could have heard a pin drop after the applause following each song had
died down. Every bleep from a mobile phone and every click of a camera's
shutter swelled to become an obtrusive distraction. The audience were
remarkably reverential and appreciative, united in their enjoyment of
Brendan's music.

As usual, it seemed to end as soon as it had begun, but an immense, palpable
sense of satisfaction now hung in the air. Brendan had quite literally
thrilled his audience.

This was, perhaps, the best of the seven gigs I've seen him play this year.
The combination of venue and audience anticipation was unparalleled, I think,
and the fact we were allowed to stand created a much greater sense of intimacy
than had been present at, for example, the Union Chapel, which is otherwise
also a very atmospheric venue.

My sincere thanks go to Brendan Perry for his generosity and permission to
release this soundboard recording.

My considerable thanks also go to Denes P. (inreason on DIME/lamb79 on Brendan
Perry's forum) for having the good common sense to ask Brendan for permission
to tap into the soundboard, whilst the rest of us, stuck in our ways as we
are, are doing everything we can to assure ourselves of a good audience
recording.

Denes's raw recording suffered quite badly from oscillating volume levels. He
had made a few adjustments during the gig in an attempt to prevent clipping,
but these had rendered the recording quite inconsistent.

I have judiciously applied amplification where it was most needed, in order to
compensate for sudden drops in volume in the middle of a song. If I've done my
work well, you'll hardly notice the seams.

Other parts of the recording have also been boosted to bring their volume into
proportion with the rest, taking care not to lose the dynamics of the quieter
songs, such as 'Song To The Siren'.

The gig is complete, shorter than my audience recording

due to the fact that the recorder was paused during the encore break.

You will notice that the snare drum dominates the recording. Someone with the
requisite skills may care to attempt to iron out this crease in an otherwise
truly outstanding record of the evening.

Another project for an ambitious soul is to create a matrix of my audience
recording and this soundboard recording, thereby blending the church's
acoustics with the clarity of the soundboard. I actually attempted this
myself, but, for reasons I still can't fathom, couldn't quite make the two
layers completely synchronous (in spite of considerable effort, I might add).

Denes has kindly provided artwork for those who wish to burn the recording to
CD, but those wishing to do so should be aware of the need to downsample the
recording to 44.1 kHz in the process. It currently has a sample rate of
48 kHz.

Tom Waits is one of the most original musicians of the last five decades. Renowned for his gravelly
voice and dazzling mix of musical styles, he's also one of modern music's most enigmatic and influential artists.

His songs have been covered by Bruce Springsteen, Rod Stewart and Norah Jones, among many others. But Waits has always pursued his own creative vision, with little concern for musical fashion.

In a long career of restless reinvention, from the barfly poet of his early albums to the junkyard
ringmaster of Swordfishtrombones, his songs chronicle lives from the margins of American society -
drifters, dreamers, hobos and hoodlums - and his music draws on a rich mix of influences, including
the blues, jazz, Weimar cabaret and film noir.

Using rare archive, audio recordings and interviews, this film is a bewitching after-hours trip through
the surreal, moonlit world of Waits' music - a portrait of a pioneering musician and his unique,
alternative American songbook.

A very good sounding recording. Thanks to  TheMonk for sharing this one on DIME some time ago.

Here's a classic AATT show from 1984. AATT played as support to The Cure on this occasion.

It's a soundboard recording of their appearance at the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham, England on 30 April 1984. This is a transfer from the original analogue master tape, so this is the ultimate version of this show. I think I've seeded this one before a few years ago, but maybe there are some newer members who missed this great show when it was on the tracker for the first time...
