The second Neubauten and the third Sonic Youth and The Meat Puppets on 05-Jan-85. The audience was brought to the performance place in the desert by 6 busses. Filmed excerpt available on the "Liebeslieder" video. Alex and Boyd Rice have a joint performance in which Alex pummels Boyd's chest with rocks while he's lying on a bed of nails.
I got this tape of unknown generation in a trade in the 2000s and digitized it using Audacity in 2015.
I had no idea of the set list above whe i did this and decided to seperate the tracks by the aural impression, that's why there are more tracks in my version, especially i created two distinct tracks of Blixa speaking...
