Here's a lossless recording (in WAV) of the Minneapolis concert last year, courtesy of Ollie Stench, that left us a link in the comments. Our THANK YOU to him.

The Sisters supporting DM, Andrew had some nice words about the headliners, hence the name of the bootleg. Excellent sound and a powerful performance.

The concert that made a lot of fans fear for the worst... I was there with my friends and for 15 days we were still discussing what happened...
During Flood II you can hear that mostly Andrew mumbles instead of singing, making this one of the worst versions of the song I ever heard... Followed by:
Apparently a technical problem with Andrew's mic turned This Corrosion into a miserable affair with only the instruments and the background voices, very sad indeed. Andrew disappeared in the smoke only to return for the last verses of the song. The general opinion on the ground was that he had lost his voice or didn't give a damn about singing the lyrics anymore. The fact that the entire band seemed lost after that and all the songs were rushed didn't help also.
Peter Murphy closed the night with a brilliant performance afterwards, wich made things even worse and left a bad taste in the mouth of every Sisters fan. In defence of the band we can state that this was the first concert of 2008 after a break of several months and soon after they played a stonking gig in Suikerrock Festival.

Small venue concert with a very noisy crowd during the acoustic version of "I Was Wrong", making the band interrupt the song and trying to restart again. Since the crown doesn´t shut up, the song remains unfinished and the band launches "Neverland". Nice sound.

It's a long time since I've posted concerts in Portugal, so here it is, PJ harvey and John Parish, one month ago in Porto. I actually saw them live in Salzburg, Austria in 1997. They were perfect then are still are now.
It's amazing how many good recordings of concerts have been made from the "Mechanized Europe" tour, this is another one. Also good to mention that these photos are from the actual concert and they're great, the photographer (I appologise for not remembering his name) is a master.
