It seems that I still hadn't posted this particular TV performance, or at least, I can't find it on the blog. It's perfect for this Patricia Morrison themed week.

RE-UPLOAD: Patricia Morrison - Duchess Of York, Leeds, UK - 11.06.1994 (Flac)



And another rarity shared here by Egg_Crisis.

Cassette(aud,master,TDK FE90,recorded on Saisho PS 35R with built-in mic) > wav > Soundforge(normalise uneven L&R channels) > CDWave(split on sector boundaries) > flac(6)

Tape flip during opening moments of last song. Matched drumbeats on the edit so it's barely noticeable, if at all.

Her band had been due to play at the Duchess on 3rd Aug 1992. I went along to the gig only to find it'd been cancelled at the last moment. On that occasion the band was named as "Sister Gun" on the gig advertisements although I've no idea if this was an official name or the Duchess's doing, but perhaps a Sisters-based name wasn't a good idea anyway, given what happened when two other ex-Sisters tried something similar with their band!


Setlist:

01 She Feels
02 Falling
03 Living End
04 Where's Your Soul
05 Saviours
06 Drive Her Mad
07 I'm Not Alone
08 Believe
09 Love Never Dies
10 Come Closer
11 Reflection

Cassette(aud,low gen-from one of the Camden Market sellers a month or two after the gig,TDK D90) > wav > Soundforge(normalise uneven L&R channels) > CDWave(split on sector boundaries) > flac(6)

Tape flip before last song.

On the cassette inlay "Drive Her Mad" was listed as "Drive Her" and "Trick Of The Light" was listed as "Trick".  I'm guessing maybe someone got a setlist from the front of the stage and got the song titles from there.  Because of this, some of the song titles may be in a shortened form and not their full titles.

Buzzcocks - "The Way Out", Pebble Mill, Birmingham, UK - 22.05.1993 (Flac)




Very good FM broadcast. Thanks to Egg_Crisis for sending me this one to share here.

Astra satellite decoder > TDK D90 > wav > CDWave(split on sector boundaries) > flac(6)
 
A live session on Radio 5's "The Way Out".  They performed 4 songs from their new album "Trade Test Transmissions" and an old classic.

Radio 5 was broadcast on medium wave, but was also available on the Astra satellite (analogue) which is where I made this recording from.  It was only available as one sound channel so it's mono.

Spectrally, medium wave recordings usually cut off at 5000-6000 Hz depending what frequency you're at (at least it does in the tests I conducted).  This one from satellite cuts off at around 11,000 Hz, so not exactly FM quality but it sounds pretty decent.

Hosted by Samantha Meah, broadcast each week from 10:15pm to midnight.
During the inteview Nicholas Parsons can also be heard, he was a guest on the show that week.

Danielle Dax - Burberries, Birmingham, UK - 01.12.1987 (Flac)



Huge Thanks to Egg_Crisis for sending me this recording to share here.

This recording had very low levels. The left channel was quiet and the right channel was a lot quieter.  For that reason I've used only the left channel and doubled it up so the flacs are half the size they'd normally be.  It sounded like the taper kept fiddling with the levels, for example adjusting them for Numb Companions which is a quiet one, then turning the levels down again a few seconds into the following song, etc.  All in all it doesn't sound too bad but it's strange quality, rather tinny, and Ms Dax's between song talking is barely audible at times.

The band / history:

O.K. So much has been said about The Mary Chain's second reunion; now some eight years on. Their output during this time has been rather spartan to say the least; one song, "All Things Must Pass". Believe me I'm not complaining.
This time around they finally brought their "Performing Psychocandy In It's Entirety" Tour to Southern California some three months after their two night stop in San Francisco. Last May I was left bewildered as to why they didn't play L.A. during the spring tour. Then I realized that they were scheduled to play LA's "Fuck Yeah Fest" or simply FYF (so people could download their passes at work I suppose). Wait a minute. Do people still use printers? I digress.
Goldenvoice (read: AEG) has turned the festival into mini Coachella. So there's all the communication moratorium bullshit around the coveted "sideshows". The band had originally listed a show at The Fonda on Friday, August 21st.
It later mysteriously disappeared as many, myself included, inquired about a ticket link on the band's facebook page. Two (yet to sell out) shows were finally put on sale only after this Glass House show sold out in a mere two hours.

Fast forward to now. The band played to a capacity (750 or so) crowd in a venue that could only politely be described as sweltering as the temps outside were in the cool 105's during the day and in the upper 80's when the band took the stage at 10 o'clock. The rocket scientists who manage The Glass House invariably decided to fire up the AC at 4 PM during load in. The band seemed to take it in stride as they performed an incindiary feedback-laden set to match the triple digit temps. Not to be outdone by his older brother, even Jim's mic was prone to (I'm sure unintentional) feedback at times. Hence the minus.

Psychocandy holds a warm fuzztoney spot in my heart as it was released on my 20th birthday. I won't go so far as to say it was like nothing I've ever heard before (read: Metal Machine Music). Still, The Beach Boys meets The Velvets delivery by the Brothers Reid was at the time very unique, only to be emulated by two dozen more bands that followed and ernestly looked downward while playing. To see the album played completely was a nice treat. I never really expected the unexpected as my two copies of "Barrowlands" (RSD and the boxset - you got me guys!) have been played many times in
addition to all of the shows posted on Dime. "Nine Million Rainy Days" from 1987's Darklands was a welcome addition to the set. The irony of which was not lost on me as this state hasn't had even nine such days over the past two years.

This show had all the elements of a classic Mary Chain sans the fighting, bitching and bickering from the siblings. Fear not, a small fight did break out in the audience as a few "my mommy says I'm special" entitled assholes pushed their way to the rail, dispatching those that had waited in line since 5 o'clock, outside, in the sun. A "No. Fuck. You." fest broke out between the two parties during the set break. Thankfully, shit got sorted before the band returned to kickoff Psychocandy's opener "Just Like Honey". If you listen intently you can hear the altercation in the background.

Surprisingly, the band seemed pretty well rehearsed throughout. For those keeping score... Ex-Lusher Phil now plays bass again and Mark plays rhythm guitar. Not sure what happened to drummer-then-guitarist, John Moore who played with the band when I last saw them three years ago.


The recording:

I decided to set up shop exactly where I was for Lord Huron the month prior with similar results (fortunately). The band played ferociously loud for nearly 90 minutes. The recording is pretty well balanced. Jim's vocal's are somewhere in the middle of the mix. There is very little in the way of crowd noise. Minor amounts of clapping and cheering between the songs only.

"Sometimes the taping gods are on your shoulders" - Coolerluzi

Of note:

The crew changed out the set list three times before the band took the stage. I was very happy with the final selection as I got to hear "April Skies" which was nixed from the Hollywood Park show three years ago and personal fav "Blues From A Gun" which hasn't been played at the other Psychocandy shows. Also, not sure who sang bv on "Honey". You could barely hear her
anyway. At one point Jim accidentally drops his mic at the end of "You Trip Me Up" only to apologize. A kindler, gentler Mary Chain, perhaps? Certainly not gentler! One guy remarks at the very end "that they used to cause riots". Well not tonight. Maybe it was just too fucking hot!

Please support the band:

Buy a cool vintage T-shirt or the Psychocandy beach tote.
See them before shit goes south again!
