The Cure - Ginásio Ibirapuera, São Paulo, Brasil - 31.03.1987

It's my pleasure to present you the recording from Capitão Gancho of this concert. I checked around and this seems to be the first time this bootleg surfaces. The sound is average, as expected from a recording done more than 20 years ago with a walkman, but it's listenable, and a great concert it is, with the band absolutely perfect and the crowd going wild, as usual in Brasil.
A big THANK YOU to Capitão Gancho for sharing his recording with us.

Jarboe was the female singer from the Swans, and this excellent Audience Master from Ziggy, captures her band in concert with an intensity that matches the early years of her former band. In FLAC.

The Sisters of Mercy - Mechanised South America Tour - 2009 (Sketchbook)

OK, so let me tell you what this is.
I was really curious to listen to the recordings of the South American concerts by the Sisters, search a little bit, asked some traders, but nobody that I know has them. I'm pretty sure they exist, but for now they're not available. So, using a tool that DocSommer indicated me, I went searching YouTube for videos with decent sound to transfer them to MP3.
Let me tell you, that it's a bitch, searching all the clips (most of them without the name of the song) to try to get as much songs that are listenable and were complete, from each concert.

After completion, and only one concert has the complete setlist (because I broke the rule of the complete songs), I listened to it and actually enjoyed it!

Of course it looks like a Dadaistic text, such are the changes of sound quality and volume.

I call them sketchbook versions because they're a good teaser for when a proper recording surfaces.

Worth listening, if only to hear the overwelming joy of the crowd (imagine waiting 20 years or more for one Sisters concert, like in Argentina and Peru!!!), that goes mad almost on the entire time (in all the concerts), but also because the band is absolutely at it's Peek and Andrew is singing like I haven't hear for some time.
Thank to everybody that uploaded their videos on YouTube, you're too many to mention individually! But you know who you are.

Hope you enjoy it, I surely don't feel I wasted my time on this pet project.

The Sisters of Mercy - X-Tra, Zurich, Switzerland - 29.04.2009 (Flac)

This excellent recording was made by Sisterstekland, who was kind enough to let me share it. It's actually a new mix, that sounds better than the previous one. The vocals are super clear and the band gives a very good performance, there are some small fluctuations in sound, because the taper was also video recording the concert (some of the images are in the 2009 tour video) and moved position. There are two songs missing from the setlist, Flood II and This Corrosion, that were not recorded. During Train/Detonation Blvd you can hear a security guy demanding that the taper erase the video recording, and getting tricked to accept the battery instead, as any good taper, Sisterstekland had another.:) In FLAC. Links open separately.

Also, here's a nice photo gallery of the concert:

This bootleg has surfaced recently, so most of you must already have it, but it makes total sense to post it in here, so here it stays.

From original TXT file:

Well, this was the first "time i had great problems recording a show. My MD decided to play a trick onme and i had strong problems to be able to set volume right when i started to record. I had already set the volume but Peter's engeniers always push the volume too high. It is not the first time i experienced that. Sometimes it gets so high that we can barely take it. So, i fucked up the first 3 songs. I still include them here in order for you to have the full recording, because i haven't seen any other. Zikir is listenable but the next 2 have a lot of high volume distorted parts as also some cuts and sound drops. Then i was able to get it right and got it right for the rest of the show and everything went smooth and the sound is nice and stable."
