Gary Barrett (alfienoakes on Dime) RIP

Gary was a well-known figure in the Glasgow music scene, after working in A1 Sounds / Fopp and Avalanche Records for over 20 years. He also promoted a few shows in the mid 80s.
When minidisc technology emerged, he immediately set himself up for recording and began chronicling all the gigs he attended. This is a record of all the existing MD’s I found in his massive music collection, which his brother asked me to transfer on to hard drive.
Gary passed away suddenly from natural causes in Sept 2006, ironically just after he purchased his first HD recorder and only got to record 2 shows with (Green On Red at King Tut’s being the last one).
Big thanks to jamroom for taking over this project and the many dimebots who have helped him in this massive endeavour. This MD Project is a tribute to Gary's passion for live music and supporting local and small touring bands.


Band members:

Andrew Eldritch - Vocals, Guitar
Doktor Avalanche - Drums
Adam Pearson - Guitar
Chris Sheehan - Guitar
Si Denbigh - Programming

Gig Notes:

Gary never taped any support bands.

Recording notes and sound quality:

Added fades and boosted the volume by +8db. Please note that the was only one MD for this show and it cuts out midway through Top Nite Out and going by the setlist on, misses Vision Thing as well. I guess Gary ran out of disc or a lead came out.

Being the Barrowland, there's plenty of background chat and other noise. I'm guessing Gary was further back, probably at the soundboard, at the PA wasn't too loud and sounds just a little distant. Sounds decent enough though.
