The Cult - Pinkpop Festival, Draf-en Renbaan, Landgraaf, The Netherlands - 08.06.1992 (MKV)
HUGE Thanks to Magnix for sending med this video to share here. The band is smoking hot, literally. Excellent performance and video.
Original Info File:
2. Sun King
4. Interview Jan Smeets (Pinkpop founder and organizer) on May 31, 1993 about The Cult performance (the band refused to leave the stage, making the festival end after midnight, which had never happened before nor has happened again; Jan Smeets was really pissed off about this and in the interview he talks about it) (in Dutch) includes some The Cult footage
Total running time: 20 minutes and 7 seconds.
Taken from the Dutch NOS (in collaboration with VARA) national TV broadcast, June 8, 1992.
Note: this was the first time Dutch TV did a live broadcast straight from the festival.
Track 4 taken from the Dutch Nederland 3 national TV broadcast, May 31, 1993. A joint NOS, VARA and VPRO broadcast.
Source and lineage (taped and transferred by Magnix): TV > VHS > DVD+RW > .VOB > MPEG2 Matroska MKW
Taken from my own VHS PAL video tapes, which were taped straight from the original TV broadcasts. Not exactly sure which VCR was used back then, it has long gone ever since.
Although I already did a transfer from the original VHS tapes before back in May 2007, from which I used the 1993 interview, I did a new transfer of the 1992 broadcast as I was not satisfied with the original result. In both cases the VHS tapes were transferred to DVD+R with my standalone DVD-recorder (Philips DVDR 3430V). The original tranfers either from the build-in VCR, or from my now gone Akai VCR through a SCART connection, the new transfer from a SHARP VC-M31 again through a SCART connection. All was ripped to PC with DVD Decrypter as VOB-files and edited to MPEG2 Matroska MKW format using VideoReDo TVSuite.
Used software: DVD Decrypter 18.104.22.168 (.VOB) > VideoReDo TVSuite 22.214.171.1249 (.mkw)
Another tape from the Magnix Live Archive.
