The Rose of Avalanche - Duchess Of York, Leeds - 28.07.1988 (Flac)
First share of our newest collaborator Roverinexile. It couldn't be any better than this rarity. Check out his blog: http://mylifeingigs.blogspot.com for a lot of excellent reading and info.
In summer 1988, the Rose of Avalanche played a series of gigs in Leeds under the moniker "Absolutely Anything". This is the first of 3 I have on tape. The band had been on a bit of a hiatus due to the contract dispute with Fire Records. They mostly played newer tracks, but none that hadn't been played live before.
They were clearly the support act, and it sounds like a pretty sparsely attended event. Phill is in his usual sarcastic mood.
There's a longish interlude between King of Fools and Don't Fly Too High, but overall a decent quality recording.
