October 1986 and Smithsmania was at it's peak I had the bug bad,travelling to Canada to see them in
Toronto in the summer being a stunning highlight. It seemed as though the band had been touring
almost non stop for 3 years and it is truly remarkable to look through the amount of shows they performed. So, on the one hand,the live act had been honed to a considerable degree, on the other, fatigue and tensions were creeping in, but there was no hint that a couple of months later the band would perform live for the last time at the very same venue and despite recording the last (and best) album "Strangeways Here We Come" the following year,well, the rest is history.

Had some issues with this tape,it is marked Mixing Desk, and could very well be,judging by the low audience noise, Side A was fine, just needed a very minor boost to the right channel but Side B was very uneven, with lots of hiss on Morrissey's vocal, particularly on "Cemetry Gates" so i have remixed it using more of the channel that had less hiss...

I know this circulates in a few different versions, a couple do not include "Cemetry Gates" on them
maybe because of the noise issue, a complete version was upped at smithstorrent many years ago
but, i do not know how this new transfer compares. eternal thanks to the original taper.

Red Lorry Yellow Lorry - I-Beam, San Francisco - 18.03.1985

And another lorries recording, again courtesy of nashspacerocket, a big Thank You to him. Good sound.

Original comments:
this show is great, starts off with some dodgy bass playing,  chris reed asking the audience for more energy a few times,  and some drunken guy near the taper gets into an argument at one point, all of which is audible. the last track is an interview they did for tapezine Bang Zoom #7 from 1986.

David Bowie - Storytellers - 23.08.1999 (ProShot DVD)

Again, thanks to cEnda for this one.

Content Detail;
It's obvious that Bowie enjoys himself during this performance. The stories he tells are
not specifically about the songs he performs but are rather retrospective and concentrate
more on the historical times of the songs. With the benefit of hindsight one might
speculate that, at the time of this performance, he was in the process of recording the
never-to-see-the-light-of-day 'Toy' and therefore was very much thinking about the
circumstances surrounding his back-catalogue

Pigface - St Petersburg, FL - 17.11.1991 (DVD)

Thanks to cEnda for sending me the links to this one and to the original uploaders.

From wikipedia:

Pigface was formed from Ministry's The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste tour,
which produced the In Case You Didn't Feel Like Showing Up live album and video. For the tour, Al Jourgensen brought Atkins, Nivek Ogre and Chris Connelly. Also on the tour was Rieflin, regular Ministry drummer at the time. While Atkins enjoyed the dynamic of playing with a second drummer, he felt that the lineup was capable of doing much more than being, what he has frequently called, "a Ministry cover band." Once the tour was over, Atkins and Rieflin decided to continue working together and recruited several of their tourmates from The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste tour. Pigface was born with the intention of keeping a revolving-door style collaboration with many experimentally-minded musicians, many of whom, especially early on, had recorded for the influential industrial music record label Wax Trax!.

I ripped this directly from a VHS tape. No idea on the VHS' lineage, but it looks like your typical sub-professional video boot from the mid to late 90s. The camera's onstage with the band, so some of the angles are nice.  Unfortunately the cameraman wanders a lot and gets some really poor angles as well.  Foetus opened and joined the band on stage for Hips Tits Lips Power.  Someone requested this one ages ago, so hopefully it was worth the wait.
