Black Session #108. Early reunion show. Bernard Lenoir interrupts the end of "Bedbugs and Ballyhoo" and then we come back for the last few notes of "Don't Let It Get You Down." "Nothing Lasts Forever" wasn't part of this particular broadcast.

Another show brought to you courtesy of the Stonecutter Archives.

There is supposedly pro-shot video of this session. Anyone have?

RE-UPLOAD: New Order - Reading Festival, Reading, UK - 29.08.1993 (Flac)

Probably the best sounding NO bootleg ever. TThanks to original Uploader.

Original notes:

At the time, this gig was regarded by many as New Order's swansong; the fact that a good proportion of the audience thought this might be the group's last-ever gig added a special frisson and atmosphere for those of us who were there. Basically it's the same set as the rest of the (fraught)'93 tour but with, I think, a bit of extra fire.
The show was broadcast in part by the BBC and other networks round the world. However, this BBC CD, taken straight from a broadcast quality CD (complete with reference to a certain pop star currently undergoing a court case for offences relating to children faded out!) is the complete show with all the songs in the right order. "BLT" and "Dream Attack" are particularly rare, not appearing on the well-known "Electronic Ecstasy" boot,, and will probably not have been heard in this quality before.
This is, as far as I know, the first time the complete show* has been distributed, and it's a cracker. Sound quality is superb. I've done absolutely nothing to the files at all, figuring that if it's good enough for Auntie, it don't need no fiddlin' about with.
All in all, one of my favourite-ever NO gigs.
(*the only bit that are missing are  a few short bits of between-song "banter" )

RE-UPLOAD: RE-UPLOAD: Christian Death - Roxy Theatre, Los Angeles - 06.04.1985 (Flac)

Another rarity shared by Superblasted. A Huge Thank You to him for this week of Christian Death Delights.

Original Info File:

"The Path Of Sorrows" performance.
(not to be confused with The Path of Sorrows album released in 1993)

Lineage: Audience recording > unknown generation tape > CDr trade > EAC > Audacity > WAV > FLAC > You!
Audacity was used to split tracks, speed correction and removing some cuts.

This one is the only know 1985 recorded performance with still Rozz on vocals!

I tracked down this show for so many years, and so far it's the better source i've got.
The sound is a bit muffy and loud but overall good. I tried to level up the high frequencies but the result wasn't satisfying, and too saturated.
So this is the direct transfert from what i got. It got some little pops on a couple of tracks however.
If someone feels like improving the sound of this historical performance, or even better, has a low gen source, please process and share!!

Christian Death performed a series of gigs entitled "The Path Of Sorrows" in march/april 1985 in America to promote "Ashes" album.
The Los Angeles gig at Roxy Theatre on 6 April 1985 is a multi-media extravaganza featured films, a banquet, and a program. Kristina Fuller coordinated and supervised the visuals, film sections and Rozz's four costume changes.

In late April 1985, Rozz officialy left Christian Death after a phonecall to Gitane Demone, leaving Valor to take the rest of the band to Italy as part of the European tour.
The Rest of the story is well known, Skippy hijacked the name, even if he agreed to performs as "Sin and Sacrifice of Christain Death" at first.
Who knows how Christian Death could have evolved if Rozz stayed in the band...

So 25 years ago was the Path of Sorrows.

RE-UPLOAD: Shriekback - Arena, Rotterdam, The Netherlands - 17.04.1983 (Flac)

And another one that should make Dave Sez happy, short but excellent. Thanks to FREDHEADSET for sharing this one on DIME. Excellent FM broadcast.

Recorded and broadcasted by VPRO Radio

Shriekback were a rock / wave band formed in 1981 in Kentish Town by Barry Andrews, formerly of XTC and League of Gentlemen (keyboards/synthesizers/vocals), and Dave Allen, formerly of the Gang of Four (bass), with Carl Marsh, formerly of Out On Blue Six (guitars/vocals) soon added to the line-up. They were joined by Martyn Barker on drums in 1983.

They enjoyed some success on the dance chart on their original Y Records label, and had a string of hits on the UK Indie Chart, and their debut album, Care (1983) was picked up by Warners in the United States.They left Y for Arista Records for 1984's Jam Science, also recruiting drummer Martyn Baker. The album reached number 85 on the UK Albums Chart, and the single, "Hand on my Heart" charted in the Top 60 in the UK. Finding little success, they switched to Island Records for the 1985 album Oil & Gold; Marsh left during the recording of the album, to be replaced by Mike Cozzi. After the follow-up, Big Night Music, Allen left to rejoin Gang of Four, and Shriekback remained a collaborative centred around Andrews. Allen would also go on to play in King Swamp and The Elastic Purejoy. Marsh was also in the band, Happyhead.

After a further album in 1988, Go Bang!, the band split up. Andrews continued working on other projects before re-forming Shriekback in 1992, although after the single "The Bastard Sons of Enoch" and album Sacred City, there would be no further releases until 2000's Naked Apes & Pond Life album.

Both Allen and Marsh returned to the studio to contribute to the recording of Shriekback's 2003 release, Having a Moment. Since Having a Moment Andrews has recorded two albums for Malicious Damage (Killing Joke's original label) under the Shriekback moniker. Film director Michael Mann, was a fan of Shriekback, and used several of their songs in his films Manhunter and Band of the Hand, and in his television series Miami Vice.
