Good Audience Recording.Thanks to the original poster.

Original Info File:

Lineage: 2nd Gen Cassette>CDR>EAC>WAV>TLH>You

This is taken from one of the 'Camden Market Cassettes' that I used to purchase back in the early 80's. Given that it is almost 34 years old, there are a couple of minor dropouts in the tape. Nothing awful though.

I ran it from a Technics cassette deck via a graphic equalizer and a Behringer audio enhancer & processor to the CDR recorder. If anyone wants to mess around with the sound, feel free. Just don't mp3 it unless for personal use. Hopefully I have the tracklisting correctly identified.

1.Hamlet (Pow Pow Pow) (cuts in)
2.Pleasure Avalanche
3.Say A Spell
4.Dead Joe
5.6" Gold Blade
7.Fears Of Gun
8.Deep In The Woods
9.The Six Strings That Drew Blood
10.Sonny's Burning
11.Big Jesus Trashcan
12.She's Hit

Nick Cave - Vocals
Rowland S. Howard - Guitar
Tracey Pew - Bass
Mick Harvey - Drums



  1. Legendary wild gig - supported by Malaria! and the (terrifying) first ever UK appearance of Einsturzende Neubauten.

  2. Swampland live! Beautiful. Thanks for this and the new Sisters boot.
