The Cure - Coachella Festival, Indio, CA - 19.04.2009

Brilliant The Cure concert with almost 3 hours. The Cure played about 40 min past curfew till the plug was pulled on “Jumping Someone Elses Train”.

“Just past 12:30 a.m. on Monday, the main lights were turned on, …. Then the big screens were shut off and then the lights on the stage were turned on ….
Right after they started “Boys Don’t Cry,” the main speaker was turned-off, but they kept the amps on, on stage. Once the group finished – Jumping Someone Elses Train – and started in on another – Grinding Halt – the stage amps were turned off at 12:40 a.m. Jason kept playing.”

You can hear everything of this in the recording. Good sound.

The Sisters Of Mercy - Battle Of Metal Festival, Geiselwind - 06.07.2007 (Flac)

Like in 2002, the Sisters only gave 3 concerts in 2007, this is one of them, in FLAC. One must wonder why a metal festival is headlined by the Sisters... Andrew Eldritch should be happy, since he claimed several times in the 80's that they were a Heavy Metal band. This was probably the first time someone took him seriously on that claim...

Good sound, but with some fluctuations.

The Cult - House Of Blues, Cleveland, Ohio - 9.11.2009 (Flac)

And a concert from last week. In Flac, according to the wishes of the taper. Excellent sound.

From original TXT file:

"Hot performace, the band is hitting on all cylinders, probably fueled by the masses drunk on cheap draft beer. Shows like this suck to tape due to the people around you, its all about them and their bromances and cell phone pictures.
Recording came out better than Detroit, most certainly due to the acoustics and smaller more intimate venue. Very powderful, the best of the three gigs I saw/ taped.
Support the band by buying their cds, swag at the gigs and concert tickets."

MC5 (with Primal Scream) - Meltdown Festival, Royal Festival Hall, London - 24.06.2008

So, today's posts have a theme (wich is not usual here in the Room), and that is, bands with ex-members of the Sisters of Mercy playing live. To start here's the MC5 playing live with Adam Pearson on the rhythm guitar. Adam was the member of the Sisters that stayed more time in the band (excluding Von and the Doc, of course), from 1993 to 2005. He only recorded the "Under the Gun" single, but helped define the sound of the band (as we know it today) by co-composing most of the unreleased songs and giving new arrangements to the old songs.

This is the concert of the MC5 on the Meldown Festival 2008, where they played with the Primal Scream. There were three sets performed at this show:

Set 1: Primal Scream
