The Sisters of Mercy - Lokerse Festival, Lokeren - 05.08.2010 (MultiCam DVD)

You probably noticed that there's been very little posts of the Sisters Of Mercy. This happened because I felt that there was a overbombing of them since the blog started and the readers were getting bored, so I took a month off, from now on there will be less but still constant.

The best way to restart it's for sure to post  of this  exclusie Fan MultiCam DVD made by Sisterstekland AKA Pascal, who was kind enough to share it here, SO A HUGE THANK YOU TO HIM!

I used a new hosting service as an alternative, Minus, tell me what you think about it.

The Misfits, Necros, Crucifucks, Violent Apathy - Eagles Lodge, Kalamazoo, MI - 26.09.1982 + Bonus (DVD)

Thanks to Chris for sendimg me this DVD to post here.

Original Info File:

Thanks to squirly, we bring you the complete, uncirculated 37min Misfits set from
Kalamazoo 1982-09-26. Taken from squirly's 1st gen tape, this marks the first time the complete
Misfits set has been made available to collectors. Prior to this surfacing, only 13mins of their
set was known to exist.

While this first gen upgrade has a very rough start (the first 13 mins of visuals exhibit top-of-screen
tearing and reoccurring frame loss due to deterioration of the source tape. Audio is not affected.), the
tape does settle down after that. This upgraded version stands head n' shoulders above what was previously
available in both quality & completeness.

I) Misfits
1979-01-?? @Studio Zero, NYC


-Peppermint Twist
-I Wanna Be Your Dog

The earliest circulated footage of the Misfits......sorta.

Misfits central has this to say about it:
"Although this is not a Misfits recording, it comes close. Jerry and Glenn spent an evening at Studio Zero
and got up on stage to perform some cover songs with their friends. The first song was performed without
either Jerry or Glenn, although they both appeared in the audience. "Peppermint Twist" was originally performed
by Joey Dee And The Starliters and "I Wanna Be Your Dog" was originally recorded by The Stooges. "Trash" and
"Vietnamese Baby" were New York Dolls songs. The drummer Dave later auditioned for The Misfits when they were
considering replacing Joey Image. This video is owned by Bobby Steele and has not been distributed."

Also according to MC, this video runs 20min when complete -- with 3 additional songs, none of which Glenn & Jerry perform on. These two songs represent all of the footage that has been distributed as of 2008 (MC needs to update their listings, this 7min worth has been traded for years).

II) Misfits
1983-06-11 @Santa Monica Civic Center, Santa Monica, CA

This 4 minutes remains the only piece of the video in circulation.
The Misfits & the Vandals opened for Black Flag, this was of course their legendary, "Everything Went Black" re-union gig where Chavo, Dez & Henry each performed a set on vocals.

The Cure - Southside Festival, Neuhausen ob Eck, Gewerbepark, Flugplatz - 23.06.2012 (Flac)

Very Good sound. just two weeks until the band plays in Portugal's Alive Festival. Huge thanks to scttrbrn for sharing his recording on DIME.


I've started recording about 20 meters away from stage, directly in front of the right speaker stacks. Unfortunately I forgot my battery box at home, so the bassdrum is somewhat distorted on this recording, especially at the beginning before I've turned down the rec volume...
After a few songs I've moved more towards the center of the stage and the recording becomes better, it's really not perfect but listenable.

The setlist was a good mix of festival-crowd-pleasing popsongs and more interesting
stuff like "If Only Tonight We Could Sleep" or "Bananafishbones". I've been looking
forward to hear the recently unearthed "Fight", "Just One Kiss" or "The Top" in the
encore, but they chose to play a pure pop encore instead... grrr!!!
Apart from this the show was great, they played very energetic and seemed to have a
lot of fun on stage. Unfortunately Reeves Gabrels' guitar was very low in the overall mix,
you could barely hear him - would have been interesting to hear his addition to
the Cure sound...

At the end you can hear Robert predicting that England will "fucking kill Germany" during
the European football championship. Well, today we know better ;)- 16bit master by scttrbrn -

Fear - SNL Halloween Special - 31.10.1981 (ProShot DVD)

A piece of national TV history being written. Thanks to squirty for sharing this one over at Punktorrents.

This is Fear on Saturday Night Live Halloween 10-31-1981. It includes all 4 songs from the tv broadcast,the quality on the first song is rough, but improves quite a bit for the rest of the songs.Also included is an interview with John Joseph of The Cromags Descibing the night from start to finish,with some pretty cool first hand insight.

Time : 11:25
NTSC DVD with menu ready to burn.

The 1981 Halloween episode of Saturday Night Live was hosted by Donald Pleasence. The band Fear was booked at the insistence of John Belushi who was a huge fan. Belushi initially offered them the soundtrack for his major motion picture Neighbors. The movie studio eventually forced Fear off the project and to make up for it Belushi got them the spot on SNL. Among the politically incorrect nature of Fear's songs, the band's appearance included a coterie of dancers, several of whom had been contacted for the event by both Penelope Spheeris (another avid Fear booster) and Henry Rollins (contrary to popular belief however, he was not in attendance himself); among them were Belushi, Ian MacKaye, Harley Flanagan of The Cro-mags, and John Brannon of Negative Approach, causing destruction of the set. During rehearsals the director wanted to prevent the dancers from participating, so Belushi offered to be in the episode (it had been many years since he left SNL) if the dancers were allowed to stay. The end result was the shortening of Fear's appearance on TV. The band first performed "I Don't Care About You", during which, Lee sang the words "fuck you" (albeit away from the microphone) on live television. The band started their second performance by saying it's great to be in New Jersey, to which the audience booed (the show was filmed in New York). Fear then played "Beef Bologna", "New York's Alright...If You Like Saxophones," and started to play "Let's Have a War" when the audio and video of the telecast faded into commercial.

K.I.L.L. = Keep It LossLess

The Band:

Jim Reid: Vocals
William Reid: Lead Guitar, Distortion
Phil King: Bass, Backing Vocals
John Moore: Rhythm Guitar, Backing Vocals
Brian Young: Drums

The performance:

O.K. So much has been said about The Mary Chain's second reunion. Many have observed that the Reids have looked bored or  that they seem less than polished. What? This is Jesus and The Mary Chain after all. Nobody has ever confused these guys with King Crimson. Their playing is less than precise and they've always looked bored or indifferent. Over the past 25+ years they've played 17 minute sets and incited riots and they've played 25 minute sets of feedback with their backs to the audience. This time around they faced the audience but were completely backlit the entire time (see: "Sisters of Mercy"). The only thing that has changed is that their legendary onstage blood feud has transformed into middle-aged sniping and griping.

Jim has mellowed quite a bit and takes things in stride for the most part. His trademark mop of hair has given way to a short crop. In fact he could be mistaken for fellow Glaswegian, Jim Kerr ten years ago. The band appear a bit more in sync than their run of Texas shows 3 months earlier. They still take the opportunity to fuck-up the classic "Halfway To Crazy". Starting it no less than three times. Jim admits after the second take that it disintegrates into a jazz number. All 3 takes are represented as one track. This isn't "The Swinging Pig".

Otherwise, the band seems on solid footing backed by a solid trio including former Lush / Felt bassist Phil King and one-time Mary Chain drummer then guitarist now guitarist again, John Moore.

The recording:

I decided to set up shop exactly where I was for Devo the month prior with similar results (fortunately). Unfortunately, some d-bag 6 feet in front of me and to my right begins shouting at his friend on the other side of the audience between "Teenage Lust" and "Sidewalking". The worst of it is between songs. Other than that, it's nearly perfect. I had to run my secondary rig and was worried that my mics would blow out the input on my modest H1. Fortunately, every thing turned out pretty solid. Both the mix engineer and I were sorting out levels for the first 2 minutes of "Snakedriver". I adjusted things in post to bring up levels. It still sounds a little funky to me though as there is a minor level shift (dropout). A mosh pit with crowd surfers opened on the left side of the barricade. I was on the right. Nice. I was in line with Will's Orange stack, so his playing comes in like a Predator drone. All other instruments fall in behind. Jim's vocals are clear and discernable but sit in the middle of the mix. Overall an VG+ IMHO. Please leave feedback to the contrary if you agree or disagree.

Of note:

"April Skies" appeared on the setlist after "Reverence" (presumably the first encore) but was sadly crossed out  and not performed. Funnily enough it seems that Will began to play the song until Jim lovingly told his brother "Wrong song, William!" At which time they played "The Hardest Walk". Will reveals their offstage discourse earlier during the encore break "Jim says I played like shit tonite by the way!" Jim replies "Well he did!"

Psychic TV/PTV 3 - Festsaal Kreuzberg, Berlin, Germany - 06.11.2009 (Flac)

A request. Very good sound, Thanks to DoubleU for sharing this one on DIME. Cover from the Rock Rare Collection Fetish blogspot.

Lineage: Sony MZ-R70>ECM-MS 907>Trust SC-5500P> Audacity 44,1 Mhz/16 bit> FLAC level 8

Original Notes:
This recording is incomplete. I was there because of the support act "ROME" and just let my MD-Player go, with the rest of  space that was left on the disc. There was a lot of chatting arround me and the people arround me were not very  happy with the main act. They left the venue after 45 minutes. I cut out some speaches of those guys during the  pauses between the songs. So the lenght of this recording is ca. 70 minutes. It is recorded a little bit to loud, too. Sorry for that.

I've never been in Psychic TV, so I have no ideas about the song titles except the Syd Barret song "No Good Trying".

1. The Thin Garden?
2. Higher & Higher
3. Trussed?
4. No Good Trying
5. New York Story?
6. Hookah Chalice?

Punk Brittania Ep. 3 (DVD)

Last part,focusing on bands that are regularly on the blog.

Episode 3 of 3

Duration: 1 hour

Punk had shown what it was against - now what was it for? In the wake of the Pistols' demise a new generation of musicians would re-imagine the world they lived in through the music they made. Freed up by punk's DIY ethos, a kaleidoscope of musical influences broke three chord conformity.

Public Image Limited allowed Johnny Rotten to become John Lydon the artist. In Manchester, Magazine would be first to record in the wake of the Pistols' split, Mark E Smith made street poetry while Ian Curtis turned punk's external rage into an existential drama. A raft of left-wing art school intellectuals like Gang of Four and Wire imbued post-punk with a sense of radical politics and conceptualism while the Pop Group infused funk with anti-capitalist sentiment in the early days of Thatcher. Flirting with fascism and violence, the working class Oi! movement tried to drag punk from the Kings Road into the heart of the East End whilst Anarcho punks Crass embarked on the most radical vision of any.

In a time beset by dread and tension perhaps the biggest paranoia was Mutually Assured Destruction essayed perfectly by Young Marble Giants' Final Day. Released in the height of Thatcherism, Ghost Town by The Specials marked a parting of the post-punk waves. Some would remain avowedly uncommercial whilst others would explore pop as a new avenue in the new decade. The song that perhaps summed up post-punk's journey was Orange Juice's Rip It Up and Start Again.

With John Lydon, Howard Devoto, Mark E Smith, Peter Hook, Jerry Dammers, The Raincoats, Wire, Jah Wobble, Mark Stewart, Edwyn Collins, Young Marble Giants and many more

Punk Brittania Ep. 2 (DVD)

Second episode of this excellent documentary.

Punk 1976-1978

Episode 2 of 3

Duration: 1 hour

Daydreaming England was about to be rudely awakened as punk emerged from the London underground scene. A nation dropped its dinner in its lap when the Sex Pistols swore on prime time television. Punk had finally found its enemy- the establishment. In Manchester, the Buzzcocks' self-released Spiral Scratch was a clarion call for a do-it-yourself generation, while the Clash's White Riot tour took punk's message across Britain. Moral outrage followed the Pistols around the country, effectively outlawing punk - but there was one refuge for the music. Nestled in the wasteland of 70s Covent Garden, the Roxy was punk's cathedral.

Punk interlopers the Jam raised the bar for lyricism, challenging punk's London elite.
Punk also began to extend its three-chord vocabulary through an alliance with reggae, memorably captured by the Clash on White Man in Hammersmith Palais. With their second single, God Save the Queen, the Pistols scored a direct hit at the establishment in summer '77, but a disastrous PR stunt on a Thames barge would mark a turning point. The darker underbelly of the summer of '77 would see race riots in Lewisham. This street turbulence was the backdrop for a rawer, working class sound. If the Pistols and the Clash had
been the theory, a second wave led by Sham 69 was the reality.

By '78 punk was becoming a costume - the very pop orthodoxy it had originally sought to destroy. For many punk ended when the Pistols split, beset by internal problems, following an abortive tour of the USA in January '78. Those practitioners who would go on to enjoy sustained success sought to modify their sound to survive, such as Siouxsie Sioux. Punk had shown what it was against, now it was time to show what it was for in the post-punk era.

With John Lydon, Mick Jones, Siouxsie Sioux and Paul Weller.

Punk Brittania Ep.1 (DVD)

Brilliat documentary, if you already seen the Krautrock or Synth Brittania you know what to expect, if you didn't, you don«t know what you're missing. Thanks to the original uploader.

Pre-Punk 1972-1976

Episode 1 of 3

Duration: 1 hour

Narrated by Peter Capaldi, this opener of a three-part documentary series in BBC FOUR's celebrated 'Britannia' strand is scheduled to chime with the 35th anniversary of the Queen's Silver Jubilee and the arrival of punk as national and then international music culture. The film explores the road to punk in Britain, which begins in the early 70s with a young generation already conscious that they have 'missed the 60s party' and are stuck in a Britain heading for economic woes and dwindling opportunities. Meanwhile the music of the day - prog and super rock - seems to ask not for their interest and involvement, but only their awe and their money.

But before the punk generation finally arises to have its say during 1976 come a group of pub rockers, a generation of bands sandwiched between 60s hippies and mid-70s punks who will help pave the way towards the short, sharp shock of punk, only to be elbowed aside by the emergence of the Sex Pistols, the Clash et al.

An unlikely cast of characters set the scene for punk in early 70s Britain. Reacting against overblown super rock of the day and the glam their younger sisters like on Top of the Pops, pub rock set the template for punk. Small venues, fast retro rock n roll and bags of attitude typified bands like Dr Feelgood, Ducks Deluxe, Kilburn and the High Roads and Eddie and the Hotrods. These bands engendered a small London scene which is sometimes forgotten and helped define the Pistols, the Clash and the Damned, both positively and negatively.

Featuring copious unseen archive footage and interviews with John Lydon, Paul Weller, Mick Jones, Wilko Johnson, Nick Lowe, Adam Ant, Brian James and many more.
