Andrew Eldricht - 2 Radio Interviews - 1987

Between 1985 and 1990, the Sisters didn't tour, so this interviews are the only audio records I found from that time. It's two radio interviews, one in wich Andrew is invited to choose the songs for the show and to (not)explain his options. The second is mostly centered in trivia around the "Dominion" video clip shoot. Presented in .flac.

The Cure - Richard Skinner Session - 26.02.1981

This is an amazing recording of early versions of songs from the "Faith" album. Some tracks are arguably better than their album counterparts. Lineup: Robert Smith - vocals, guitar, 6-string bass, keyboards; Simon Gallup - bass; Lol Tolhurst - drums, percussion.

The Sisters of Mercy - Coliseu, Lisboa, Portugal - 16.03.2009

Here is the recording of the Lisbon concert, two days ago. It was an excellent concert, light years of distance of the last two gigs the Sisters gave in Portugal. If you were not there, now you can hear what you've missed. The photos are from, they've some more there and an interview coming soon, go and check them.

It's an audience recording made with a Sony MD - MZ-R91, using a Sony ECM-MS907 stereo mic. The MP3 version is equalized in Final Cut Pro in .aiff format and converted to MP3 320 with FairStars Audio Converter 1.73. The WAV version is mixed in Protools by 667, our thanks to him. It was made by the staff of the Dark Circle Room, we think its a very cool recording, but any comments about the quality are most welcome.
Due to technical problems with the MD the first three songs were not recorded in good conditions, "Ribbons" is beyond repair and "Train / Detonation Blvd" is incomplete.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Coliseu dos Recreios, Lisboa, Portugal - 21.04.2008

Nick Cave in his last visit to Portugal. Very Good Sound. From the taper's text:

So, this is the start of the new tour by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. And as all tour starts it has its moments good and bad. The "bad" one is that the band is not yet in full motion and needs to get tighter on some of the songs. The GOOD one is that a concert by these gentlemen is never a bad concert. And this one was no exception. Mr. Cave on fire delievering the goods as only he knows how. The band folowing him wherever he goes on songs and enjoying themselves even if they looked lost in a few songs as they did on Get Ready For Love. In the end of that song Nick said it was a "fucking disaster" and it was indeed but a funny one. Because Nick was discovering his way through the song and Mr. Harvey was on the side laughing like mad waiting for his partner to make it right. It was hell on the loose... You will find a very talkative Nick accepting requests over the encores. In the end a great opening night with a good setlist including a few surprise songs and i believe a nice recording but i leave that up to you guys to judge.
