We've Got A Fuzzbox And We're Gonna Use It!! / Ted Chippington / The Nightingales - Leeds Polytechnic, Leeds, UK - 08.07.1986 (Flac)

HUGE Thanks to Egg_Crisis for sending me this recordings to share here.

This was the Vindaloo Tour with The Nightingales & Ted Chippington, starting in Croydon on July 2nd and ending in Nottingham on July 16th.  At Leeds The Nightingales went on first, then Ted then Fuzzbox.  They didn't always play in that order though, taking it in turns for who headlined.

This was my 3rd gig, and the second gig I ever taped.

Cassette(aud,master,TDK D90,recorded on Saisho PS 35R with built-in mic) > wav > Soundforge > CDWave > split on sector boundaries > flac(6)

The Nightingales

I missed the start of the first song.  I found the lyrics online and none of the lyrics are missing from the recording so although track 1 is quite short I don't think much of it is missing (unless it had a very long intro).

02. The Headache Collector
03. How To Age
04. No Can Do
05. Of Course You Can't
06. Down In The Dumps
07. Part-Time Moral England
08. Let's Surf
09. Comfort And Joy

Length - 36:54

Length - 40:40

Lineup: Magz, Vix, Jo, Tina [no point naming the instruments as they changed over every few songs!]

As soon as the first song started everyone at the front started moshing and people surged back to avoid them and I was knocked to the ground.  Then the tape wouldn't record for more than a few seconds without jamming and I had to take the cassette out of the recorder and wind up a load of slack with my finger before I could continue recording, so the first song is incomplete but the rest of the gig recorded without a hitch.
