NOTES:

We enter the second half of Kraftwerk's Paradiso residency with the 'Computer
World' show.

The queue outside the Paradiso at 18:30 is shorter for the first time since
this series of concerts began. It's sold out like all the others, though, so
it'll be just as busy inside once half past eight approaches.

Another day, another wristband and another pair of 3D glasses.

Of course, the real geeks keep their wristbands on from night to night, so
they're sporting five of the things now, like military ribbons. I find them
uncomfortable. They're scratchy and they make my wrist sweat, so I cut mine
off every night when I get home. I could be wrong, but I don't think that
dedicated concert attendance actually wins you much admiration, anyway.

The live execution of the 'Computer World' album omits 'Computer World 2' and
'It's More Fun To Compute'. 'Computer World 2' is basically just a reprise, so
it's not really missed, but 'It's More Fun To Compute' is arguably a more
substantial omission.

One could contend that 'It's More Fun To Compute' and 'Home Computer' are
actually seamlessly blended together nowadays, but I have chosen to credit
only the latter to remain consistent with 'The Mix' and 'Minimum-Maximum'
albums, both of which also feature the segued version of the two songs, but
include only 'Home Computer' in the track listing.

The live playing order is once again not that of the album, and some of the
songs are again abbreviated, so that even with the addition of the non-album
'Dentaku' (the Japanese version of 'Pocket Calculator'), the live performance
of the album is almost a third shorter than the original.

Again, this is not an implicit complaint, but merely an observation. 'Pocket
Calculator' is a great version, even though it's been shorn of two of its five
minutes.

Moving to the 'best of' section of the show, 'Airwaves' is slightly botched
tonight when Hütter fails to end the intro on time. This breaks his
concentration and he then accidentally turns a dial and wipes out the synth
beat. It's a momentary lapse, however. Control is immediately recovered and
the song continues.

'Spacelab' never fails to get a cheer when the 3D film depicts a spaceship
flying over the Netherlands before landing outside the Paradiso. The spaceship
appears, of course, to be flying out from the screen, into the audience. It's
a great effect.

'Electric Cafe' vacates its second encore spot and moves into the main set.
'Elektro Kardiogramm' takes its place, marking its first appearance this
residency.

Regarding the music of 'The Robots' being pre-programmed, you'll notice when
listening to these recordings that the song's intro is actually slightly
different each time. The explanation is that Fritz Hilpert apparently plays
the intro live at his console, unseen behind the curtain that comes down at
the end of the main set. When he's ready for the main song to kick in, he hits
a button and then scuttles off stage as the curtain is raised.

The final noteworthy detail this evening is the show's length, clocking out at
just under two hours, the first in the residency to do so.

Once again, the recording was made under the same conditions and with the same
parameters as the previous ones. The mastering is again almost identical, as
is the resultant quality of the listening experience.

Scans of the ticket and both sides of the glasses envelope are also included.
And yes, the envelope really is that sludgy colour. It's not a scanning
anomaly.

Ok, here's a strange tape. The infos on the tapeinsert, noted this as "Gothenburg, 1987-08-21", but it is not. First I thought, wow, an FM excerpt from that show. But my hopes
were destroyed when I noticed some german language chatters at the end of Track #03, where Michael Gira tried to explain the crowd, that this is no PUNKROCK concert! Bummer!
I'm also not really good on swedish language to understand the radio announcer's comments, but at least I think these songs are pulled from shows at Frankfurt, Germany and
the EUROCK FESTIVAL in Alsdorf/near Aachen, Germany. Back in the daze of tapes (I mean cassettes), this would've made a fine companion to each full recorded Swans show. Today,
I'll give you this as a companion to the other fine audience recorded shows for your internal/external harddrive. Anyway, it's not really satisfying to me posting a truncated/mixed
set of songs here, but the sound is too good to be shelved away forever. Hope you understand, and hope you enjoy this rather short posting. SB.

The Rose Of Avalanche - Janice Long Session - 05.03.1986 (Flac)



Thanks to the original uploader.


Original Info File:

Recorded 5th March 1986, first transmitted 11th March 1986

01 A Stick in The Works
02 Too Many Castles In The Sky
03 Never Another Sunset
04 Velveteen

Band

Phil Morris - Vocals
Alan Davis - Bass
Paul James Berry - Guitar
Glenn Schultz - Guitar
Steve Allen - Keyboards

The session is notable for the appearance of an early version of Never Another Sunset, which disappeared from their repertoire until being release as the title track of their first full studio album in 1989.

Janice Long played Castles a lot when it was released as a single, which is when I really became aware of the band.

NOTES:

'The Man-Machine' marks the halfway point in Kraftwerk's residency at the
Paradiso. Strictly speaking, we won't actually be halfway until the show
finishes, but you know what I mean.

This is my favourite of Kraftwerk's albums, probably due to my having lived
with it for longer than any of the others.

My very first Kraftwerk record was the 7" of 'The Robots', purchased with my
pocket money in 1978 (from Rumbelows in Truro, England, if you must know). I
was blown away by the artwork on the fold-out sleeve and purchased the record
without having heard it. When I got home and played it, I loved it. 'Who were
these strange Russians making this strange music?' I misguidedly wondered.

My next Kraftwerk purchase was the 'Neon Lights' 12" single on luminous vinyl.
I loved that record even more than 'The Robots' and played it so much that the
needle must have almost worn through to the other side.

At the time, I couldn't afford albums, but these two singles gave me four of
the six tracks on 'The Man-Machine', so I had a kind of poor man's version of
it.

Tonight, thick freezing fog has settled in and engulfed Amsterdam. I'm on time
again, but the queue is even longer than it was last night. With the working
week having begun again, I had imagined that people might arrive later this
evening.

A few minutes later, armed with a shiny new red wristband and yet another pair
of 3D glasses, I head into the Paradiso, down to the tapers' changing rooms
(I've never understood why there's a toilet in there -- it only gets in the
way), and then take my place at the front, amongst the other waifs and strays
whom this residency is keeping off the streets.

Now that I've got to know a few of the fans here, the two hours between the
doors opening and the start of the show are starting to pass quite quickly. A
gig is usually anything but a social occasion for me. I almost invariably
attend them on my own and talk to no-one while I'm there. These shows are an
enjoyable exception.

The show kicks off as punctually as ever, with 'The Man-Machine' leading the
charge. As with 'Trans-Europe Express', the playing order has been shuffled
for the live performance, but it would be quite the puritan who fretted about
such things.

'The Robots' was certainly never going to start the show, anyway, as it's
consistently saved for the first encore, when our flesh and blood friends are
replaced by their nattily dressed, youthful likenesses.

As happened last night, there's a split-second glitch in the performance, this
time at 35" into 'Metropolis'. I have no idea what caused it, but again, it
has nothing to do with the recording.

The extended, 14 minute 'Autobahn' makes it back into tonight's set and what a
superb rendition it is. My headphones almost vibrate off my head while
mastering it.

The first song of the second encore is turning out to be a bit of a revolving
door. Tonight, 'Aéro Dynamik' is replaced by 'Electric Cafe', making its debut
this residency.

'Musique Non Stop' is also particularly great this evening. I really enjoy how
the band bring each show to a climax with this song, each of the four members
taking turns to break free of his more or less scripted role during the show
to indulge in a few solo antics at the console, before walking out to take a
bow and exit the stage.

Four in the bag: Four more to go.

The recording was made under the same conditions and with the same parameters
as the previous ones. It has also been almost identically mastered. The
quality is therefore comparable.

Scans of the ticket and both sides of the glasses envelope are also included.

No info on original recorder, this was the first live recording by Southern Death Cult that i "found" at a record fair after seeing them on "The Tube" a UK tv entertainment show back in the day and was the first thing
I transferred to CD after buying a CD writer.
First or second gen copy i would think, long before the days of mp3.
No EQ tweaking just fade in at start and fade out at end

History:

Southern Death Cult emerged from the ashes of Bradford punk band Violation. In place at that time were Aki Nawaz (drums), Barry Jepson (bass), Mick Iles (guitar) and Mick Brady (vocals). Songs in their set included "Boys in Blue" and "Assault & Battery".
This line-up supported The Clash at Bradford's St. George's Hall in 1980.

In 1981, Ian Astbury had moved into a new house in Bradford and reportedly discovered a band rehearsing in the cellar.
Astbury (under the name "Ian Lindsay") started performing alongside David Burrows (guitar), bassist Jepson and drummer Haq Qureshi (a.k.a. Aki Nawaz), and renamed the band Southern Death Cult,
 the traditional name of the Native American culture known today technically as the Southeastern Ceremonial Complex.

The Southern Death Cult's first ever performance was at the Mayflower in Bradford which was filmed for a never to be broadcast Yorkshire TV documentary, the band played around 4 songs.
Their first show with a full set was at Bradford's 1 in 12 club in October which was quickly followed by another at Queen's Hall in Bradford, England, on 29 October 1981.
The setlist the band played was: "Crow", "The Girl", "Apache", "Vivisection", "Moya" and "The Crypt", with a bootleg recording of that show in circulation.
 A sixth song was sometimes referred to as "War Song", but its real title is unknown, although it used lyrics which later became The Cult's 'Spiritwalker'. The band never played it after 1981.

Southern Death Cult toured heavily in the UK promoting its triple A-side single "Moya/Fatman/The Girl", which had gone to No. 1 on the UK Indie Chart.
The band toured with Theatre of Hate, and then succeeded in getting a slot opening for Bauhaus at the end of 1982, but Astbury disbanded the group after a show on 26 February 1983.

Ian Astbury then went on to form Death Cult, which later became The Cult with Theatre Of Hate's guitarist Billy Duffy.

This gig was recorded 3 days before Ian disbanded the group.

Talking with Kate
As Kate Bush returns to the stage for the first time in 35 years, there's a chance to hear her in conversation with Mark Radcliffe in 2005.

For twelve long years since the release of her The Red Shoes album, Kate Bush's hungry legion of fans were drip-fed scraps of information about her new projects.

The famine ended with the release of Aerial in 2005.

A double album of breath-taking scope and beauty, it soon established itself as a contemporary classic, ranking alongside Kate's best work such as Hounds of Love.

In Talking With Kate, Mark Radcliffe connects directly with the reluctant genius who composed this great album.

The programme is a beautifully-crafted conversation with an iconic woman who rarely talks publicly about her life and work.

Raw transfer. Noise floor is rather high.

Posted this back in 2009. Looks I changed files again after creating a MD5
(SBE correction?). Created a working MD5 for this re-seed.  



About the date (taken from albi's re-seed of the video version of this show in 2009):

For the date of the concert on that torrent robmar provided the following
information:

The date May 3rd has been given for this show. However May 3rd is not correct
date. Because:
1) In May Concrete Blonde played concerts in US. For example: May 5th, The
Academy, New York (with Jesus Jones).
2) In May 3rd DAD (Disneyland After Dark) played show at Nachtwerk Club
(correct name of venue)
3) Concrete Blonde played some shows in Germany in July. See here:
http://db.etree.org/db/shows/browse/artist_key/1603/year/1992

So most probably info about this show is:
Nachtwerk Club, Munich, 1992-06-xx

Recorded just to right of centre stage about 10 rows back.

Recorded by me (motr1912), this was a bit of a strange gig. I didn't realise Matlock wasn't playing
until a few days before the gig and was what made me want to go, purely because I thought it would be
a little different to the normal Dead

Men Walking gigs. And so it proved.

The most bizzare song of the night was definately Kirk doing lead vocals on Big Country's 'The Storm'.

SSS's second Manchester show, the club had installed a barrier 30 feet back from the stage, severely limiting both attendance number and enjoyment. Of course, at that time SS were the new 'Big Bad' of the press and there were a fair few knobhounds in the crowd, determined on making their presence felt.
A word of warning, TDK tapes don't last too well over a quarter of a century and this one has gotten creased, so there are many dropouts. MANY dropouts. Thank Goddess we have digital now.

NOTES:

Day three of Kraftwerk's full Catalogue residency at the Paradiso and it's the
turn of 1977's 'Trans-Europe Express' to receive the spotlight treatment.

For some reason, I always forget that this album preceded 'The Man-Machine'.
Perhaps my exposure to it came afterwards. In fact, it must have, because the
first Kraftwerk song I ever heard was 'The Robots'.

It's raining again outside the Paradiso when I arrive at 18:30. The queue to
get one's wristband and pair of specs seems to be longer at this time each
evening. People are coming earlier and earlier. Maybe the fact that it's the
weekend has something to do with it.

This is only my third day doing this, but it's already beginning to feel
routine: turn up two hours early, obtain wristband and glasses, suit up
downstairs, secure the sweet spot centre stage, and then devise ways to pass
the two hours before the band appear on stage.

I read the comments that people have placed on my torrent of the first night's
show and then decide to chat to a few of the fans around me. It soon becomes
evident that there are much bigger Kraftwerk fans in the world than me.

Some of these people attend any show that they can physically get to. I
suppose I shouldn't be surprised. I've also had phases of being that attached
to a band, but given the nature of a Kraftwerk performance, it seems as if it
would be a less than fulfilling pursuit in the case of this band.

Anyone who has followed an artist all over the country, the continent or the
world will be familiar with the question often posed by people on the outside
of your little world: "But isn't it the same every night?"

I usually respond by asking the person whether they own any CDs. The answer is
invariably positive, so then I retort: "Well, your CDs are identical every
time you play them, so why would you ever listen to them more then once?" The
live experience is merely a fleeting extension of the immutable listening
experience.

In truth, though, it actually does grow dull to watch the same show night
after night. Whilst there do exist artists who are inspired and rehearsed
enough to vary the set-list from night to night, they're few and far between
these days. That's why I got sick and tired of following Dead Can Dance around
a couple of years ago.

At that point, it boils down to very slight variations in the performance,
such as a vocal sung a little differently, an embellished guitar solo or a
particularly spirited rendition of a song.

Failing that, there's usually the recourse of different banter from night to
night; perhaps a new joke or something. But once you're at the level of
distinguishing one concert from another on the basis of the banter spoken,
rather than anything to do with the music or the atmosphere of being in a
different venue in a different country, then it's worth asking yourself every
once in a while whether travelling substantial distances from show to show is
still worth all of the time and expense that it takes.

In the case of Kraftwerk, there isn't even banter. Once you've seen the eight
Catalogue shows, you've pretty much heard everything in its modern form. OK,
some of residencies are performed in German-speaking countries, so you could
go to a further eight Katalog shows and hear many of the lyrics sung in
German. And some of the shows feature a 3D sound-system, so you could add
further permutations of 3D sound vs. pure stereo, but haven't you then pretty
much squeezed the last drop of detail from the experience?

Kraftwerk's hardcore fans don't seem to think so. For them, it's gone beyond
the level of what even I consider to be 'of fan interest only' and comes down
to scrutinising facial expressions and other body language.

Even a technical hitch is gratefully savoured as a morsel of rare spontaneity.
I, myself, can remember feeling so bored on the second leg of Dead Can Dance's
'Anastasis' tour that I, too, felt my spirits rise when I heard a bum note or
spotted some other glitch in an otherwise 100% scripted performance.

Anyway, I love Kraftwerk and consider myself a pretty big fan. I would have
happily travelled internationally during the last three years to attend a full
eight night residency, but ticket policies, demand and the commitment involved
made it next to impossible. Thanks to the Paradiso series of shows, I now no
longer need to contemplate this.

And that's the thing. As much as I love the band and have done since I bought
my first record by them in 1978, I can't imagine following them on tour. The
performances of the individual songs are simply too similar.

Don't get me wrong. I'm having a blast at this series of shows and in no way
regret my decision to attend all eight. I just don't see much point in
repeating the experience in a different European city a few weeks or months
from now. It's the very nature of a Kraftwerk performance that makes the idea
seem rather redundant.

But to each his own. I have the utmost respect for the band's fans -- or any
band's fans, for that matter -- who are prepared to go to the effort and
expense involved in following the object of their desire.

The show starts promptly again at 20:30 and 'Trans-Europe Express' is
performed in full. Well, I say "in full", but a little qualification is needed
here.

'Endless Endless' isn't played, but since it's just a 55 second reprise of
'Europe Endless', I doubt anyone in the audience cares.

On the other hand, whilst the 'Trans-Europe Express' album clocks in at nearly
43 minutes, this evening's rendition of it is a mere 24. 'Europe Endless' is
nearly 4 minutes shorter than on record, 'The Hall Of Mirrors' is 2½ minutes
shorter, 'Showroom Dummies' 2 minutes shorter and 'Franz Schubert' reduced to
a third of its album length. Even the title track is significantly shorter
than its studio counterpart.

If you'd come specifically to hear this album, you might be left feeling a
little short-changed by this abridgement.

I'm merely pointing it out, though. I can't say that I'm too bothered by the
abbreviation, although I note that the same fate befell 'Autobahn' on the
first night.

At some point, playing a series of shorter versions crosses the line into
medley territory. We're not in danger of that here, but if you're advertising
that each show features an entire album from the band's catalogue, then the
performance of it should arguably amount to more than 55% of the album's
length. Otherwise, one could argue that only extracts are being played.

The playing order of the album is also jumbled tonight. The band hoist the
title track to the top and naturally follow with 'Abzug' and 'Metal On Metal',
but everything after that is out of order, too. They must have their reasons
for doing this, but I'm not privy to them.

Another notable detail this evening is that 'The Model' morphs into 'Das
Model', even though it's officially a Catalogue series of shows. Perhaps Ralf
forgot where he was and, once he'd started the song in German, had to
continue.

There's also a tiny glitch at about 2'20" into 'Home Computer', which throws a
split-second pause into the song. It sounds as if there's a minuscule gap in
the recording, but it actually occurred during the performance.

Finally, 'Planet Of Visions' is ditched from the second encore in favour of
'Aéro Dynamik'.

Other than that, it's business as usual tonight in Kraftwerk land.

For the sake of consistency, I've once again applied the same EQ to this
recording as to the previous two.

I recorded the show from the same position as last night's, using almost
identical settings. I've got my game together now and will hopefully be able
to record the remaining five shows in the same way, too.

Mastering the shows more or less identically afterwards, my goal here is to
produce a coherent live audio counterpart to the official studio catalogue.

Here, for your delectation then, is another excellent recording from
Kraftwerk's ongoing residency at the Paradiso. As always, samples are included
to allow you to try before you buy.

Scans of the ticket and both sides of the glasses envelope are also included.

SO YOU GET A REAL FEEL FOR BEING INVOLVED, IMMERSED IN THE EVENT.

All I did was recieve this show via Adrive, split the tracs in Audacity 2.0 made a fade in and out, created a text file
and made the torrent in TLH.

Thanks to TB for sharing these tapes with us.

Ultravox - Stage One, Buffalo, NY, USA - 04.03.1979 (Flac)


Very Good FM broadcast. Thans to the original uploader and the person who remastered it.

Original Info File:

2nd show - speed corrected

 Soundforge was used to correct the speed, and nothing else, including bb's notes:

 SBD>tape(1st copy)>CDR(Ph.CDR570)>wave(EAC)>flacf(8)>speed correction>EAC>FLAC(8)

 I got this in trade for more than 25 years,first copy from master tape,excellent sound.Good old days with the one and only Ultravox front man John Foxx. Great performance with a lot of electronics and violin parts.I think,this is one of the best performances from early Ultravox that you can get.Enjoy it!
Some songs are from John Foxx solo albums and I`m sure, you never heard the Ultravox versions.I think the track 09.Radio Beach is never released on any  album from Ultravox or John Foxx solo work.

 John Foxx:   vocals
 Chris Cross: Bass
 Billy Currie: Keyboards / Violin
 Warren Cann: Drums
 Robin Simon: guitar



remaster notes:
  this was posted on Dec. 2008 by pernod. This appears to be either a different date or show than listed, since they played 2 shows in Boston on March 3rd and 2 more on the 4th.
The BBC broadcast posted a few times before is from one of those shows, and that is an edited version of the show missing about 20 min. this doesn't sound like that show. If it's from Buffalo, it's probably a day or two before or after the listed date.
It needed speed correction (again) so I slowed it by 9.5 cents, it needed retracking, since several tracks began with several seconds of applause, and the levels were recorded too high with
clipping throughout. (not horribly, but noticably) there were also short (about .005 sec.) gaps at most of the track breaks. not any more. there were also some problems in the right side during
some parts of "blue light" (or else the soundman doesn't care much for David Gilmour titles) so I monoized some short sections to cover up the missing sound without ruining it. this was an almost-deleter when I got it. Now it's considerably better, glad I remastered instead of deleted (I can't listen to pepped Ultravox, it just didn't sound like them before). and listening to it as I write this info text, it
sounds pretty decent (after 4 tries to get the speed to sound right, this is the only one to get posted) I also cut out a very short section of recorder turn-on noise at the start of track 9 (only about .01 of
a second) I think I got the speed right, this Ultravox band has a very distinct tone and sound to them, especially John Foxx.
I've heard enough of this tour to know what it should sound like. I wouldn't be able to attempt doing this to a Jack DeJohnette's Directions recording. I think anyone who heard this before will
find this more than a little improvement.
 I was able to splice tracks 10 and 11 quite inconspicuously, you may not even notice the splice if you're not listening carefully. and also made every song into one track as follows:
runtime: 68:58

01: the man who dies every day 6:08
02: slip away 4:19
03: slow motion 3:47 >
04: Hiroshima mon amour 4:03
05: touch and go 5:03
06: artificial life 5:13
07: just for a moment 4:00
08: he's a liquid 5:50
09: quiet man 3:52 (apparent tape flip after)
10: radio beach 3:48
11: I can't stay long (spliced) 3:50
12: someone else's clothes 5:53
13: blue light 3:59 >
14: rockwrok 5:14
15: my sex 3:53

 this adds about 24 seconds of music to the previous posting, and some of the finest spent 24 seconds an Ultravox fan can hope for, because now you're hearing them play in normal key.
Do not sell this recording. trade freely and losslessly.

RE-UPLOAD. And Also The Trees - Fighting Cocks, Birmingham, UK - 09.12.1983 (Flac)


It's been a while since I posted anything by AATT... Thanks to TheMonk for sharing this one on DIME.

Original Info File:

It's a SOUNDBOARD recording of a 1983 show at the Fighting Cocks club in Birmingham, England. There are some interesting early incarnations of a couple of songs.

"Shantell" is the long version with all three verses. For the studio version one of the verses had to be edited out because of some inexplicable noise on the original tape.

“The Secret Sea” was probably only played live for the second time during this show and Simon said that the song would be the band’s next single. This version had a different intro missing the characteristic drum intro. Instead, the song began only with acoustic guitar and vocals, bass and drums only joined halfway through the first verse.

Being obviously annoyed by a member of the audience, Simon introduced “Shrine” with the words “This song is called shit, fucking, bollocks actually”.

Alice Cooper - Apollo Theatre, Glasgow, Scotland - 19.02.1982 (Flac)


FM Broadcast. Thanks to taurus for sharing it first.

Original Info File.

15) Billion Dollar Babies 2:58
16) Generation Landslide 3:59
17) School's Out (q:Vicious Rumors fades out)13:53

No lineage that would be particularily helpful. This comes from a cassette that I bought back in the mid-eighties.
So here's the best I can do:
FM>unknown cassette recorder>unknown generation normal bias cassette>transfer to hd with TEAC R-425 MKII and 16 bit recorder>edit SoundForge 4>flac encode level 7>you

My recording ran a bit slow so I adjusted the pitch about a half a semi-tone. I used the For Britian Only EP to measure correct pitch so it should be pretty accurate.
Not a bad recording, some hiss due to my original tape being on a normal bias tape.
Sorry I couldn't include WDYTWA, MC and UMW but rules are rules. I listed those tracks in case you have them already or ever track them down so you can put them in the right order.
This show was made available on 2 commercial boots as far as I know. One is a record called "No More Mr. Nice Guy" that had most of the show but excludes Model Citizen the other was a cd of the same name but it used only a portion of the show and a few songs were edited down as well. This cassette is from niether the record or cd.

I'm a fan of the Special Forces era and like this show quite a bit, even if Alice's voice isn't in top form. Would be nice if a pre-FM surfaces some day.

Enjoy and please share freely,
