Lead Into Gold

Setlist (incomplete):

01 ?
02 ? (and Paul Barker talking)
03 Faster Than Light

Duration: 19:04

I arrived at the Metro for night 1 of Cold Waves Festival IV during the middle of the Lead Into Gold set.




01 fist half
02 second half

Lustmord is Brian Williams from SPK.  This was a dark ambient set so there are no song breaks, just 45 minutes of soundscape. I took a bathroom break in the middle of the set so there is a 2:45 gap between the two halves of my recording. 

Duration: 47:08


Setlist (incomplete):

01 New Dark Ages
02 Deadend
03 Shut Me Down
04 Life Giver Life Taker
05 Carrion [left after start of song]

remainder of set, not taped
*Towers of Emptiness
*Christbait Rising
*Crush My Soul
*Like Rats

 Duration: 22:40

I only taped the first 20 minutes of Godflesh before leaving.  This venue gets too overcrowded and dangerous when its packed. I was also annoyed that Godflesh didn't have a drummer for this show.  If you're going to be putting on an industrial metal show then you need to have a full band in my opinion.  I would like to see Godflesh put on a proper show in the future.

Pop Will Eat Itself


01 The Incredible PWEI vs. the Moral Majority (Pre taped into music)
02 Wise Up! Sucker
03 Everything's Cool
04 Dance of the Mad Bastards
05 Watch the Bitch Blow
06 Nosebleeder Turbo TV
08 Can U Dig It?
09 Ich Bin Ein Auslander
10 Get the Girl! Kill the Baddies!
11 They Can't Take (What You Won't Let 'Em Have

PWEI is the sole reason I went to Cold Waves IV.  PWEI is one of my favorite bands and I saw them before on New Years Eve 1994 at the Palace of Auburn Hills when they opened for nine inch nails.  I wasn't familiar with them back then so I was really excited to see them again after 21 years.  They put on a great show and I was not at all disappointed.  I am however still annoyed with them for not selling their new album in the US or digitally.  They didn't even sell their new album at the merch booth.  The only way to get their new album is to pay $30 in shipping charges.  It makes me sad that PWEI is going out of their way to be difficult to their fans.  It's the 20th Century.  They days of rare imported records should be over.
