Stay Safe.

UPDATE July 2020:  Due to an overhelming response to my plea for help, most of the blog is again in my possession. The exception are the recordings listed below, wich I still need. Unfortuntely, 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 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 the original uplader.

They toured through Holland with Cop Shoot Cop & Pain Teens and was a triple treat!!
This show was recorded at the Tegentonen festival in Paradiso.
For those who are following the Cranes uploadraid, 2 songs of this show we're recorded
for BBC Snub TV. There's a sounboard version of this show available via the Cranes
fanclub, which is NOT an official release. Cranes are taper friendly & approved the sale
of this CD. This is an excellent audience master & can still easily compete with the
clean SBD version where the audience is barely noticable on.
A tape of their Rotterdam show 2 days later (Feb 24, 1991) is following later

Adrian Borland Tribute page:

An introduction to the sound of THE SOUND

Prior to The Sound's formation Adrian Borland (vocals/guitar) had already released "Calling On Youth" and "Close Up", and the "One To Infinity" EP on Raw Edge (a label run by Adrian's parents) as leader of UK's Outsiders from 1977-78. Towards the end of 1978 Graham Green joined the band, replacing the original bass player, Bob Lawrence, and Michael Dudley (drums) was recruited to play alongside Adrian Janes (percussion). The new line-up recorded three tracks, which emerged on the Tortch label as the "Physical World" EP in December 1979, credited not as the Outsiders but as The Sound. They had progressed musically from their punk roots and were anxious to leave behind a name that still conjured up the atmosphere of 1977.

After the critical acclaim of the debut EP, The Sound signed to Korova Records, releasing a string of singles and two albums, "Jeopardy" and "From The Lions Mouth". These stirred a great deal of interest from both critics and public alike, establishing Adrian Borland as one of the most creative and mature writers of the post-punk scene. During 1979, Borland and Green created Second Layer, a harder, more experimental project that ran parallel with The Sound, releasing two EPs and an album. Sporadic releases continued throughout the '80s for several different labels with varying degrees of quality and success, but never managing to equal the halcyon days of 1980-81. The Sound also collaborated with singer Kevin Hewick on his "This Cover Keeps" EP in 1984.

Even now it's still hard to understand why The Sound never found commercial success. At their best, The Sound's excellent neo-pop bears favorable comparison to the Psychedelic Furs and Echo and the Bunnymen. Their debut album "Jeopardy" has a stark, beautiful quality, with the material given direct exposure rather than a production bath. Adrian Borland's vocals are sincere and gripping; the musical attack is both subtle and aggressive. The inconsequential Live Instinct E.P contains four songs recorded onstage in London, including renditions of the band's 1979 debut single "Cold Beat" and a few "Jeopardy" songs. "From The Lions Mouth" builds on "Jeopardy's" firm foundation with a fuller sound that faintly recalls U2. Produced by Hugh Jones (around the same time he did Echo's Heaven Up Here), it's bright, dramatic and sometimes ("Fire", "Sense Of Purpose", "Winning") powerful, a riveting album, the group's best.

Pushed by their label to sound more commercial, "All Fall Down" is the defiant reply, a stark, barren landscape of harsh tones and dark passages. The black, clashing music makes the challenging album an acquired taste, an ambitious, admirable exploration of the downside; not surprisingly, the record company sent the band packing. "Shock Of Daylight" a six-song mini-album produced by Pat Collier, is a strong return, building melodic, dramatic songs on a gutsy bass/drums drive, overlaying guitar, keyboards and even brass to create an attractively textured and varied sound. "Heads & Hearts" is even better, a quilt of bright colors woven with simple care. Though it lacks the knockout punch they'd shown in the past, with "Winning" or "Golden Soldiers" for example, the record's modesty and continuous flow make it a thoroughly engaging listen, a memorable album whose sum is greater than its parts.

"In The Hothouse" is a double live thriller from London's Marquee, with all the claustrophobic ambience of the club's packed space coming through on the recording. Live records this immediate sounding are hard to find. With the bulk of the material chosen from "Heads & Hearts" and "From The Lions Mouth", this is a superb introduction for the curious. "Thunder Up" is a middle ground between "All Fall Down's" emotional warfare and the later, more sensuous pop. Punching right in with one of their most exciting tracks, "Acceleration Group", the album is a rollercoaster ride through desolation ("Shot Up and Shut Down"), titillation ("Kinetic"), cynicism ("Prove Me Wrong") and profound beauty ("You've Got a Way"). Though the contrast can be jarring, unpredictability is a strength, and this is a bold up/down, hot/cold, built-up/knocked-down record most bands would not attempt. It was to be their last such uncompromising work; the group finally called it quits in early '88.

This is a professionally recorded show done for the BBC Rockhour. I have sourced the entire show from an original transcription LP. I am not an audacity expert so no 'cleaning' has been done to this show. It is presented as exactly as heard straight from the record. Unfortunately there is a scractch on the track Conversation so there is a point where it skips. I am not sure of the copyright of the original commercials (Scotch Recording Tape/Heath Candy Bars) so I have left the commercials off of this recording just to be safe.

I hope everyone enjoys this show!
