RE-UPLOAD: The Sisters Of Mercy - No Time To Cry - German TV - 1985 (Proshot DVD)


Here's a gift for all of you . This is the playback performance of TSOM on german TV in 1985, with an image quality that is lightyears away from any source avaiable until now. It's a DVD, image 4:3 Letterbox, so to make it fit on your 16:9 LCDs you'll have to use the zoom function. If you watch it on VLC player, use the crop function to 16:9.

A HUGE THANK YOU to sleepchamber for sending this video to me.


Fan made DVD for trading and sharing porpuses only!
Support the band by going to the concerts and buying merchandise.

Good things come to those who wait...


It's been almost a month since I posted anything...So I figured I owed you something extra. 

Taking a cue from the mighty ijwthstd.blogspot.com I decided to take a different approach, one simple wetransfer link for multiple recordings of a band. 

THESE LINKS WILL BE DEAD IN A WEEK, so if you see something of interest take it as soon as possible.

Tell me what you think of this method, if readers like it, I might start doing some more of these posts.

Stay Safe.

Stay Safe.

UPDATE July 2020:  Due to an overwhelming response to my plea for help, most of the blog is again in my possession. The exception are the recordings listed below, which I still need. Unfortunately, until I get them, re-uploads of the listed recordings are impossible to do.

Let me personally thank Frederic, Appick, Ledl33, Eggi, herr_zupp, bm, Gordon H, normnoia, lil_devil, Chris E, thebasement67, sam1, Michel, CCCCC, John M, BM, Marc U, Ced, STUMM101, Steve S, Dave_Sez, ziggyswoon, Zipty6, Pestilence, Egg_Crisis, Mario, Wim, Louise C, Jason D, Avatar, DKAY, MadPhil32, Richard H, dos, seelenstrom, Radek, gardeningatnite, Stephen F, Indika, Jason P, Bastien C, Rob SG, Koubiako, drolem, Alfred H, Gordon H, drido, Phillipe B, Jaeger, Inez, Marco L, Nick P, Bohdi Amol, machicouli, Steve, zenlunatic, mentallystillinthe80s, Uwe B, pillowman, monotype, teenagesintaste, Koubiako, DrG, Rob D, Rob K, Scott A, Stocky1988, Johnny V, Adam P, Mick Mercer, Ronan, derfapplez, stormtrigger, Juan SM, T Unalan, Vince, Derek P, creatured, analogkid610, Nigel B, Nuno M, Scott R, Mike M, Markus K, Craig G, Patrizio V, Frank and Jens D, for sending a lot of the files I was missing. Added a lot more, so still needing help.

So, I had a Hard Drive crash, exactly the Hard drive that had all the recordings that were on the blog. I had a second backup drive, but unfortunately it only contained the video files and half of the audio files..

To try to keep this archive alive, I'm asking the blog readers to give back some of what they received from the blog. Only on that way, can this blog be alive. I'm going to intensify the blog posts on this self-isolation time, and ask to anyone that can send me some of the missing recordings to do so.

Below it's a preliminary list of missing recordings, that were already posted in the decade of existence of the blog. I will update this list daily with more recordings missing and removing the ones that were sent to me.

You can share these recordings with me via Mega, Wetransfer, GoogleDrive, Yousendit, or whatever means you want, to this email address:


Or if you prefer you can upload them on Dime, TTD or Zomb.

Thanks in advance. This is the list for now.

 Thanks to borzage for sending me his remaster to share here.

- MULTIBAND REMASTER by the Digital Loyalist -

Thought i tried to remaster of this audience recording using some Multiband Compression as i already done with my previous torrents.

Vocals are a bit distorted but i think that's the way it was on stage and the remastering brought it up. Nevertheless i decided to leave it like that because it's such a great gig though quite noisy.

Thanks Foxtrotter.

Enjoy !

RE-UPLOAD: The Cure - Sydney Opera House, Sydney, Australia - 24,25,27,28 & 30.05.2019 (Flac)


I posted these recordings 2 years ago, thaey're now made available again by the taper. HUGE Thank You to Brent for all his work, it's much appreciated.

Original message by the taper:

This week (May 2021) is 2 years since The Cure played 5 Disintegration 30th Anniversary shows at the Sydney Opera House, the last time I shared my recordings was 2 years ago in the week or so after the shows, around 10,000 people downloaded them back then, but I'm sure there are still people who missed them and would like to download them...
So here's direct download links to my complete and uncut master recordings of all 5 shows.
I recorded using Roland R-07 digital recorder > SP-SPSB-8-MKII 9 volt battery box > SP-CMC-4U cardioid stereo microphones on sunglasses arms ontop of my head pointed towards the stage/hanging speaker stacks.
First lot of links are CD standard 16bit/44100Hz resolution, the second lot are 24bit/96000Hz resolution, most people will probably only need the 16bit/44100 files unless they're planning on playing on a high end system. I recommend boosting up the high range (treble) frequencies using a graphic equalizer for them to sound really great!
These are the exact same file sets I shared 2 years ago.

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!

 Don't have much info about about these demos, some of the these songs are features on the Sex Sounds tapes, with very minor changes. This tape has a richer sound than the Sex Sounds.

This tape is again from the collection of DiploDerek, who unfortunately is not with us any more, so we dedicate this post to his memory and with it try to spread all the love that Derek had for (this kind of) music. Below is a picture of him with with Irita, the bass player from LA Witch.

MULTIBAND REMASTER by the Digital Loyalist -

I guess you all know that this is one of the very best live show from Joy Division.

In 2012, FAGE did a great remaster out of the VARA Radio Station Master who recorded this fantastic gig.

In 2021, i thought it was time to try to do a slight remaster of this one bringing more power to this performance, adding more brilliance, trying to widen the sound.

So this is it. If you prefer to stick to FAGE, you can listen to it there :

41 years after Ian Curtis left, this music still haunts us more than ever.

This is the first set.
If you want the second set, we'll see if here is enough demands.

Hope you'll enjoy it.


Of course, don't sell this, share these files in lossless or lossy versions, i don't care as long as keep this info file.

You can find all 17 songs from the concert on this official release:

A legendary Joy Division set from the 1980 European tour, preparing for the launch of Closer. After the opening act doesn't show, the band play for much longer than normal, a seventeen-song set that includes all the hits - and it's captured in astonishing quality on an FM broadcast, with this bootleg being sourced from the master tape.

Tape story:
The venue is a big club in Bologna. I located myself at about 10 m from the stage.
This is a mono recording because I had massive problems with the connection between the 9V battery and the battery box (left channel unusable).
Nevertheless the sound is crisp and clear (and with a very professional screamer during the first half of JD set).

What about the show?
It was my fifth Peter Hook and The Light show in about three years (Movement/PCL set in Roncade 2014 and Unknown Pleasures/Closer sets in Lisbon 2014, Florence 2015 and Soliera 2016, all taped).
NO set was significantly shortened compared to the other Substance shows (only 2 B-sides at the beginning and no Shellshock nor State Of The Nation).
Dave Clough on keyboards.

Technical notes:
- As mentioned above this is a mono recording: right channel has been used in place of the unusable left one with a slight equalisation because the original recording was a little bit boomy.
- The total running time of the recording was 2:31:47; I have cut the first 9:17 mins of intro recorded music from PA and the last useless 24 secs reducing the master firstly to 2:22:06.
- Then I have divided the recording in two separate parts, "New Order" set (1:12:16) and "Joy Division" set (1:00:11), deleting 9:39 mins of recorded music from PA between the two main sets.
- "New Order" set: I have amplified the recording (+3.5 dB) and faded-out the last 6 secs.
- "Joy Division" set: I have amplified the recording (+3.0 dB), faded-in the first 8 secs and faded-out the last 7 secs.
- If you burn to audio CD, you will need 2 CDs (CD1: 01-13; CD2: 14-28)
