Artery - Band on the Wall, Manchester - 11.10.2010 (Flac)

Excellent sound. Thanks to happytrader for sharing this one.

Original info Text:

Artery, for those of you unfamiliar with them, have been labelled Sheffield's equivalent of Joy Division. They began in 1979 but split up in 1985 after two albums and numerous singles. They are an experimental and critically acclaimed band who influenced an entire generation of Sheffield/British musicians including the young Jarvis Cocker of Pulp fame. It was Cocker who asked them to play at the Meltdown Festival in 2007, so they reformed to much delight in the European music scene. The late John Peel once described them as his favourite band so indeed high praise! This concert is one of the handful of concerts they have played this year. It came as one long FLAC file so the tunes were separated, FLAC'ed to individual tracks and given appropriate FLAC tags. Many thanks to the recordist in Manchester for archiving this show. It is truly great to see Artery in the fray again and with some quite wonderful new tunes. Enjoy!

Excellent sounding FM broadcast.

Nac / Hut Report - 142 Drugs (Free Download Single)

Nac/Hut Report have just released a single of the song "142 Drugs" that includes remixes of the song by †‡†/Rrritualzzz from Disaro Records and Death to the Brutes, the side project of Brigitte Roussel. As in former releases they decided to make it avaiable through music blogs, an idea that we here in the Room think is brilliant, so here it is.

the album from wich the song is taken is still avaiable here, if you don't have yet, here's your chance (it's very good):

Marilyn Manson - Antichrist on TV 1996 / 1997 (DVD)

I shared this one a while back on DIME and a lot of people downloaded, so here it is, for the ones that aren't Dimers.

I started transfering my VHS tapes to DVD in 2005 using a DVD recorder, I spent most of the 90's recording stuff from the
various avaiable music channels, so this DVD is made enterely of 1st generation tapes.

This is a very nice insight into the Antichrist Superstar era of Marilyn Manson, with various interviews that complement
the performances. In the program that had official promo clips, those were removed, according to DIME rules.

Hope you enjoy it.

Tool - Estádio do Restelo, Lisboa, Portugal - 06.04.2002

Excellent sound. I was on this one, my only Tool concert so far. I bought a ticket to OzzFest just to see them (and Slayer, I have to admit), so it was a pleasant bonus (even if unfortunate) when Ozzy couldn't perform due to personal problems and Tool got the headliner slot, doing a two hours set with all the video gear. It rained all the time, but the audience didn't seem to mind, that's how good the concert was, everybody completely mesmerized by the music and visuals.
