The Beakers, The Blackouts, XTC - The Showbox, Seattle, WA, USA - 29.02.1980 (Flac)



This one should be interesting to Ministry fans,since The Blackouts were Paul Barker and William Rieflin band just before they joined Al Jourgensen in Ministry. As a curiosity, Lydia Lunch's 8-Eyed Spy is mentioned in the posted of the concert, but it were The Beakers who played as a support, somewhere inbetween the poster being made and the actual concert there was this line-up change. Thanks to the original Uploader on Dime.

The Beakers

"The Beakers were a Seattle post-punk band made up of George Romansic (drums),
Mark H. Smith (guitar, vocals), Jim Anderson (sax, vocals) and Frankie Sundsten (bass),
which existed between January 1980 and January 1981. While active, the group only
released a 7’’ titled ‘The Red Towel’ and one track on a local compilation album,
"Seattle Syndrome, Volume 1". In 2004, K Records released the 7’’ along with fifteen
other tracks on the ‘Four Steps Toward a Cultural Revolution’ CD."  Both Smith and
Romansic would go on to form the 3 Swimmers, another great early Seattle band.

The Blackouts

Formed in Seattle in 1979, after the breakup of The Telepaths, the lineup included lead
singer/guitarist Erich Werner (2), bassist Mike Davidson, synth/sax player Roland Barker
and drummer William Rieflin. Shortly after their second release, the "Men In Motion EP",
Mike Davidson was replaced by Paul Barker, Roland's brother.
Playing their final Seattle show in August 1982, the Blackouts headed for Boston. There
they met Ministry's, Al Jourgensen, who produced their last release, the "Lost Soul's
Club EP".  Another move, this time to San Francisco, in 1984, was followed by the
Blackouts' disintegration in June 1985. By 1986, Paul, Bill and Roland had all joined
Ministry.
The remaining Blackout, Erich Werner (2), eventually found his way to The Toiling Midgets
in 1992 which broke up in June 1997.
