RE-UPLOAD: Chatshow - Polytechnic, Oxford, UK - xx.xx.198x (FLAC)

Another rarity shared by Egg_Crisis from this forgotten band, If anyone can help with the date of the concert...

I looked at discographies in an attempt to pin down even a year and found 4 singles from 1986/87 but none of them featured *any* of these songs.  Their "Kings Of Confusion" 12" single from 1987 includes two tracks from Oxford Poly in March 1987 (Eye To Eye Contact, Western Way) but neither of those songs appear on this recording so it's not a lot of help.

01 Confession
02 Voodoo Shimmer
03 Danse Macabre
04 Automessup
05 Crown Of Thorns
06 Taxi Driver
07 Freud Casino
08 Arena Of Fear

Length - 25:40

  1. Hi - I've tried many times now but the download never starts, it just hangs ... can you try putting up another link for the download please?

  2. Any help?

    If it wasn't the Poly but the Apollo, that would make it 27th March 1986, backing New Order ... don't know the group, so can't comment on the discography situation.

    Cheers, Dave Sez.

  3. Aaargh! Link doesn't work! Can you fix please as I'm sure I know when this gig was - I just need to hear some of the tracks ...

    1. Hi, the link is working... But Mega only works with Firefox and Chrome, what is the brwser you're using?

      I'll try to upload it somewehre else anyway.

  4. Ok - I've managed to download the files and played the tracks: I know exactly when this gig was - it was February 23rd 1985 at the Oxford Polytechnic (supporting Play Dead - the same gig Play Dead's "Into the Fire" live album and video were made) .... how do I know? Because I was Chatshow's drummer at the time and that's me drumming! :-)
