Gary Numan - Sydney (31.05.80)


Gary Anthony James Webb, Valerian, Tubeway Army or Gary Numan (take your pick) will be 50 years old on 08 March. He's still touring, albeit with a darker sound. Here's a short set from his synth / new wave / electropop period. It was recorded at The Capitol Theatre in Sydney on 31 May 1980 and recently broadcast on Australian radio station JJJ, hence the occasional announcer interruptions. Excellent sound quality - 37 minutes at 192kbps.
Recommended listening: Replicas + The Pleasure Principle, released within a few months of each other in 1979.
A remastered and expanded version of Replicas is released in the UK on 25/02/2008.

The Housemartins - Glastonbury (22.06.86)


At 12 noon on Sunday 22 June 1986, The Housemartins were the opening act on Stage One of Glastonbury CND Festival. This was the third and final day of a musicfest which included the likes of That Petrol Emotion, The Waterboys, The Pogues, Psychedelic Furs, The Go-Betweens, Lloyd Cole & The Commotions, The Cure, Half Man Half Biscuit, Madness, Microdisney and The Mighty Lemon Drops.
This appears to be a very good audience recording. It has been fully tagged and mastered. Only 9 tracks, but this is the full set.


01 Think For A Minute
02 Heaven Help Us All
03 Over There
04 Sheep
05 We're Not Deep

07 Me And The Farmer

Talk Talk - Hammersmith Odeon (08.05.86)


You rarely (read never) find a link to download Talk Talk bootlegs, so hopefully this one will generate some interest. Recorded on 8 May 1986 at the Hammersmith Odeon in London, this disc is also known as Talking Colours. This is the original broadcast version. There is another version in circulation which has Tomorrow Started and Renee tagged on to the end, however these tracks are actually from a gig on 11 July 1986 at the same venue. This offering is a cracking set, showcasing the band's excellent instrumentation.
Note that this set differs from the deleted London 1986 release on Pondlife. If you have a copy to sell or exchange, please get in touch.

01. Talk Talk (3:37)
02. Dum Dum Girl (3:59)
03. Life's What You Make It (4:41)
04. Mirror Man - Does Caroline Know? (9:03)

08. It's My Life (8:21)
09. I Don't Believe In You (5:24)
10. Such A Shame (9:15)

Recommended viewing - bonus dvd from Natural History (Sight & Sound version), available for £6.99 at;-1;-1;-1&sku=621367


REM - Demos (1990)


Out Of Time, released in February 1991, was the seventh studio album from REM and their second for Warners. It became their biggest seller to date, mainly due to the phenomenal success of Losing My Religion. Here's the demo disc of OOT. It's quite different and sounds even better than the final release. There's an excellent album outtake, It's A Free World Baby and two distinct versions of Radio Song. On the downside, there's no Endgame or Belong.

01 Half A World Away
02 Texarkana
03 It's A Free World Baby
04 Low
05 Radio Song
06 Country Feedback
07 Losing My Religion
08 Near Wild Heaven
09 Shiny Happy People
10 Radio Song #2
11 Me In Honey

Talking Heads - Demos (1975)


Thanks to Alex from the big country, I offer you Talking Heads with their CBS studio demos. Most of these songs were tidied up and appeared on Talking Heads : 77 (1977) and More Songs About Buildings And Food (1978). Four of the songs remained unreleased until the 1992 double cd compilation - Popular Favorites 1976 - 1992 Sand In The Vaseline. From memory the demo versions were used, so unfortunately I cannot make them available. That aside, I'm certain you'll enjoy the raw versions of the remaining songs.
The sound quality is superb.
Why not catch up with their back catalogue, newly remastered with bonus tracks and dvd. You'll pick most of them up for £6 or less (HMV online or Fopp).

01 Psycho Killer *
02 Sugar On My Tongue :(
03 Thank You For Sending Me An Angel +
04 I Want To Live :(
05 I Wish You Wouldn't Say That :(

10 Tentative Decisions *
11 Warning Sign +
12 I'm Not In Love +
13 The Book I Read *
14 Love Goes To Building On Fire :(
15 No Compassion *

Crowded House - Finsbury Park (11.06.94)


Crowded House are back on 02 July 2007 with a new studio album, Time On Earth, available on Parlophone. I'll definitely add that one to my collection. To remind you of how good they were/are, here's an excellent set from 1994, performed at The Fleadh (Irish music festival) Finsbury Park, London. The inter song banter is most entertaining, with security coming in for special treatment. The best is reserved for a poor heckler, to whom the song Pineapple Head is dedicated. Madcap stickman Paul Hester (RIP) is missing from this performance, having decided to stay at home in Melbourne.
Two part zip via Sharebee for several downloading options.

01. When You Come
02. In My Command
03. Fall At Your Feet
04. Fingers Of Love

REM - Black Session (07.05.01) Part 2


As promised, here's the second part for your listening pleasure. The first track (10) happens to be my favourite REM song. As an added bonus, I've included another rendition of Imitation Of Life, which was recorded two days earlier at Nulle Part Ailleurs show, Canal + Studio, Paris.

11 The One I Love
12 She Just Wants To Be

REM - Black Session, Paris (07.05.01)


REM arrived in Europe in May 2001 to plug their new album, Reveal. They recorded a Black Session at Studio 105, La Maison de la Radio in Paris. I've encoded this one at a hefty 320kbps, so I'll need to upload it in two parts. I've used Sharebee this time, to give you several downloading options and to keep the links going a bit longer. The sound quality is excellent.

01 Imitation Of Life
02 The Great Beyond
03 What's The Frequency, Kenneth?
04 All The Way To Reno (You're Gonna Be A Star)
05 Daysleeper
06 I've Been High
07 Electrolite
08 The Lifting
09 At My Most Beautiful

(Check back for Part 2, which will be available in a few days.)

Ed Kowalczyk - VH1 Studios (March 2006)


Ed is the voice and creative talent behind Pennsylvanian rock band LIVE. They are huge almost everywhere other than in the U.K. Last year Ed performed stripped down versions of four LIVE hits at VH1 Studios. Highly recommended listening. The second album, Throwing Copper (from which Lightning Crashes is pulled) or the greatest hits package, Awake are good starting references if you wish to hear more. I'll post a LIVE concert in the near future. Get your ear plugs at the ready!

01 Heaven
02 The River
03 Mystery
04 Lightning Crashes

Paul Weller - BBC Radio Theatre (23.04.01)


This concert was broadcast by BBC Radio 2 from the Radio Theatre, London in front of a specially invited audience of fans and competition winners. This fulfills a request for my brother, Alan. Changing Man not on the set list, however a superb version of That's Entertainment should make up for that. If you like this I suggest you buy Days Of Speed, which collates various live acoustic tracks from Weller's 2001 global tour.

01 The Loved
02 Brand New Start
03 You Do Something To Me
04 Clues
05 Out Of The Sinking
06 Science
07 Sweet Pea, My Sweet Pea
08 Here's One That Got Away
09 All The Pictures On The Wall

11 Everything Has A Price To Pay

13 Headstart For Happiness
14 Wild Wood (ends abruptly)

Kaiser Chiefs - Belfast (04.04.05)


Kaiser Chiefs are flavour of the month in the U.K., having enjoyed a #1 single with Ruby and currently holding on to the top spot with their new album, Yours Truly, Angry Mob. Here they are on 04.04.05 at The Limelight in Belfast. Tracks 3 and 11 did not appear on the first album, but can be found on the Lap Of Honour import cd.

01 Na Na Na Na Naa
02 Oh My God
03 Hard Times Send Me
04 You Can Have It All

09 Time Honoured Tradition
10 Caroline, Yes
11 Take My Temperature

Madness - Hammersmith Odeon (23.12.80)


This concert is tagged as Hammersmith Palais, London (19.12.81). According to the excellent Madness Information Service Online (visit it at it took place at Hammersmith Odeon on 23.12.80. These are two distinct venues, however the set list is the same. Due to the absence of Grey Day, Shut Up and It Must Be Love, which all charted in 1981, I would concur with MIS Online. Irrespective of that, it sounds great.

01 One Step Beyond
02 E.R.N.I.E.
03 Mistakes
04 Disappear
05 Bed And Breakfast Man
06 Return Of The Los Palmas 7
07 Close Escape

Placebo - OuiFM, Paris (06.03.06)


This is a radio broadcast from Oui 102.3FM, La Cigale, Paris. It took place exactly one week prior to the release of Meds and features 9 of the 13 tracks from the standard cd issue. Also included is a superb version of a Kate Bush song. The DJ interrupts at the end of a few tracks, which is a pity, however it is funny to hear him pronounce 'Plass-ee-boo.' This one's encoded at 256kbps.

01 Intro
02 Meds
03 Infra-red
04 Drag
05 Space Monkey
06 Because I Want You

The Cranberries - WNNX Studio (19.08.94)


The Cranberries are featured here in a short acoustic set for WNNX Studio in Atlanta, Georgia. There are 35 Cranberries' boots in the vaults. I chose this one at random and I'm happy to report it sounds great. Encoded at 192kbps.

01 Sunday
02 Zombie
03 Wanted
04 Linger
05 Dreaming My Dreams

Dexys Midnight Runners - Rockpalast (16.04.83)


Dexys are far better live than in the studio, as demonstrated here at Rockpalast, Grugahallen, Essen (Germany). This gig lasts 77 minutes and at 192kbps, sounds great. Whenever I hear track 9, I always think of the Top Of The Pops gaffe when Kevin sang to a backdrop featuring a rather rotund, grinning, toothless, Scottish darts player. Classic! Download in 2 parts due to size of file.

01 Geno
02 The Celtic Soul Brothers
03 Let's Get This Straight (From The Start)
04 Plan B
05 Let's Make This Precious

13 Kevin Rowland's 13th Crime
14 Keep It Part Two (Inferiority Part One)

Goldfrapp - Paradiso (30.05.06)


Paradiso is a converted church in the heart of Amsterdam. It is probably the main music venue in Holland, attracting top performers. Goldfrapp returned here last May, after a 3 year absence, to play a 40 minute set. The sound quality is excellent.

01 Slide In
02 U Never Know
03 Deer Stop
04 Satin Chic
05 Beautiful
06 Fly Me Away
07 Ride A White Horse
08 Ooh La La

Teenage Fanclub - White Session (11.04.95)


This file is tagged as a White Session (session acoustique) at France Inter. I'm not sure if this is quite correct, however here we have 3 vocalists taking turns at singing their own compositions. The Byrds meet Big Star with great tunes and harmonies. Track 6 is a Creedence song.
