A beautiful open air location, perfect weather and perfect sound -
If only there wouldn't have been so many airheads wandering around
in search of their seat 5 minutes after showtime - there are small
things called watches, really! The hero of the day though was the bugger
who ruined the 1st song for me asking me loudly what seat number I've got.
I would've gladly said "Oh, this is seat number F*** YOU and your ugly parents
who were too dumb to teach you how to read the clock or your ticket."
but didn't want to desecrate the recording any further, so I decided against it.

Apart from this and the thousands of people running around to get their
50th beer and 30th Bratwurst, which is of course the most important thing
to do when DCD perform "The Host Of Seraphim", the concert was really good -
much better than the one in Berlin last year, the sound was stunningly good
and Brendan did some very nice vocal improvisations during some tracks.

It was great to see "Black Sun" (one of my all time favourites) and "Cantara"
back in the set and "Song To The Siren" was also a very nice surprise at the end.

RE-UPLOAD: Christian Death - Exo 7, Rouen, France - 15.05.1984 (Flac)

The 2 first songs have hiss (tape fluctuations) but it goes very okay from the middle of track 2.
And the first contributtion from new collaborator, Superblasted, who offered some of the recordings of Christian Death from his collection to post on the blog. A HUGE Thank YOU to him!

So it seems that for this month we will have an increase in this band related posts, and thats very good news, let's start by this very good soundboard recording.

The Fleeing Somnambulist is missing (after track 6). Cervix Couch is cut at the beginning.

BUT this is a must have for all Rozz Williams/Christian Death fans!!!

The Cult - The Varsity Theater, Minneapolis, MN, USA - 06.08.2013 (Flac)

Thanks to  Hurricane62 for sharing his recording on Dime.

Original Info File:

"Electric 13 In Dinkytown"

Recorded by Hurricane62 from near-dead-center, not far from the front of the stage.

Audio Technica SP-CMC-2 Cardioid Mics -> SP-SPSB-11 Battery Box with Bass Rolloff set at 95 hZ -> Sony PCM-M10 (44.1 MHz/16 bit) with Limiter ON and Low Pass Filter OFF -> WavePad (amp & track splitting) -> converted to .flac using Traders Little Helper (SBE's fixed, flac level 8)

Great show in front of a sold-out venue.  This was my first time at The Varsity Theater and I was very pleased with the layout and the acoustics.  Recording came out very good.  Minor eq work done to highlight and balance the vocals and guitars.  I also went through and one-by-one de-amplified the individual claps of a very loud clapper that moved to my front-left just before The Cult began.

There was a noticable shift in the sound in the second set.  My record levels were unchanged during the intermission, but when they came out and started into "Rain" I had to chase the levels for some reason.  Through the first half of the second set Ian Astbury was fighting feedback in his in-ear monitor and was working the soundman pretty hard trying to get it fixed.  The vocals go forward and back for a while (especially for "Embers", "The Phoenix", "Rise", and "For The Animals") until eventually they bring Ian a new microphone (you can hear him throwing the first one down - TWICE) just before "She Sells Sanctuary".  As a result, the sound on the second set is not as good as it is on the first set.

There is also an intermittent hiss/pop/crackle in the right channel.  I must've had a nearly-loose connection.  Between the jostling in the tightly packed crowd and me chasing levels in the second set, the static shows up and disappears throughout, but is never terrible and is always short-lived other than at the start of "Lucifer".


There is a video of "Sweet Soul Sister" that I shot and synced to this audio source here:

All my concerts were recording for Radio-Bellevue and Zap FM, so we have had some technical facilities to record these shows.

CHRISTIAN DEATH were recorded for Radio-Bellevue FM at the West Side Club (500 s) in Lyon in May 1984.

It was a pre FM recording for Radio-Bellevue and i've used a simple mix of soundboard outputs with ambiance microphones (Sennheiser MD441) recorded on-the-fly onto a tape recorder SONY TCD5M.

Line up:
Rozz Williams (chant)
Valor Kand (guitare)
Gitane Demone (clavier et choeurs)

I'm not sure about the line-up. Dave Roberts could be on bass on this one.

A great night! :-)
Unfortunately, battery power let me down during "Goodbye", resulting in that and five subsequent songs (the encores) missing from this set.
Full show should last around 2 hours and 10 minutes.
Great crowd & a beautiful setting, the Roman arena in Nîmes, France is one of my favorite locations for live music! :-)
A bit of wind during the show, which you will hear from time to time, during some of the quieter passages.
Enjoy the music! :-)
Peace, MM.

Huge thanks to Nocna Hudba for capturing this show (and Atoms For Peace  show, the headliner from the July 12th night - and for responding to our request by promptly sharing the original 24b/96lacs with us!

This really is a GREAT tape in my opinion - clean crisp sound even though this is an outdoor festival; a few particularly enthusiastic audience add-ons were 'surgically removed' by BLG :) So I think it does justice to the stunning performance! Internal mics - but, man, you will be surprised. The only sad part is that we are missing the first trackÉ.

All thanks to Dime member - roman79
If you enjoy this recording then please thank him!
I was just there and pushed 2 buttons, he made this recording possible.


This was the fourth show of Kraftwerk's stint headlining the Vivid Festival in Sydney.
They played 2 shows per night at the world famous Sydney Opera House for four nights in a row.
The 360 degree surround sound was perfect and the 3D visuals very impressive.
Kraftwerk as ever were heads down and fully focussed on their new sleak, flat music machines.

This is the 3rd and last of my recordings that I made of these great shows.
It's the 16 bit version, i can upload a 24/48 version if there's any demand for that.
If anyone else taped any of these Sydney shows, then please share them.
If you have the chance the see Kraftwerk 3D somehwere in the world then don't miss out, it's an amazing show.

Stray Cats - The Ritz, New York City, NY, USA - 28.11.1982 (Flac)

Thanks to propylaen for sharing this vinyl rip on Dime.

NBC 83-10
The Source - NBC Radio's Young Adult Network
Syndicated radio broadcast window of March 11, 12, 13, 1983

This is sourced directly from the LP vinyl discs of the syndicated radio show The Source, NBC Radio's Young Adult Network. The show is numbered NBC 83-10, with a broadcast window of March 11, 12, and 13 of 1983. The same set list was broadcast on December 10, 11, and 12, 1982 on NBC 82-43. Both shows do not include the final song of the last encore, which was a cover of Eddie Cochran's "Something Else."

Files were manually declicked in Audacity. 300 dpi scans of the cue sheet and record label are included. The commercials are tracked so that they can be deleted if you don't find them of interest. Still trying to figure out the Bud commercials...they're clearly imitations of bands current at the time...anyone want to venture a guess? (particularly track 15...)

George Taylor Morris, the announcer for this show, is generally credited for helping to reignite the "Dark Side Of The Rainbow" urban legend in the late 1990s, when he mentioned on air that Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" album can be played while watching MGM's 1939 film, "The Wizard of Oz," and the lyrics and music will sync up with the screen images.

Well, the drive there with Jirka was fun, as was the drive back. Only the bit
in the middle, the reason for actually driving those 450 km, was on the drab
and dreary side.

To make matters worse, I had extra tickets for this show that I needed to sell
outside the venue. The huge 7,000 seat capacity meant that there was a ticket
on the door for anyone who still wanted one, so it was a buyer's market and,
with professional touts slurping up any passing trade that existed, attempts
to offload extra tickets ultimately proved futile.

With mere minutes to go until David Kuckhermann is due to appear on stage, I
abandon the quest to recoup some of my outlay and head inside for my first
indoor gig of the 2013 tour.

There isn't enough time left to head to the toilets, so I instead suit up in
the foyer and then make a beeline for my seat.

It's roasting hot inside the aircraft hangar the Francophones call Forest
National and the Dutch Vorst Nationaal. Beads of sweat soon form on my
forehead and begin to work their way down my brow.

I'm just in time for David Kuckhermann, who is particularly on form this
evening. With the good fortune of an excellent view of his hands, I marvel at
his spritely fingerwork during the outstanding riq solo. It garners a huge
response from the audience that leaves me feeling gratified on Kuckhermann's

Also worth noting this evening is Kuckhermann's airing of an older piece that
I haven't previously heard him play live. At least someone is managing to
retain an element of surprise on this tour and, indeed, Kuckhermann's set will
turn out to be the highlight of my evening. It's all downhill from here.

Dead Can Dance come on at 21:00 and proceed to trot out yesterday's show all
over again. It's like watching Christmas Day repeats of Morecambe & Wise or
The Two Ronnies, but without the luxury of nostalgia.

Looking on the bright side, the recording of the show is considerably better
than the one I made in Gelsenkirchen the night before. I wouldn't rate it as
highly as the recording of Fiesole, but that was an outdoor venue with
completely different acoustics, so you may enjoy the different colour of both.

There's one other reason to be cheerful about this evening: I managed to park
the car for free.

And Christian Death just after the departure od Rozz Williams, Valor takes care of the lead vocals, the band was upposed to be called Sin and Sacrifice of Christian Death, but soon dropped the first part and continued as Christian Death. A Huge Thank to Superblasted for sharing this recording.

Full gig after Rozz recent departure, compiled from 2 different sources.

Tracks 01-09 are sourced from 38f master tape previously uploaded on Dime.
Lineage : 38f version > EAC > wav > Audacity (loud & bass added) > Wav > Flac

Tracks 10-19 sourced from RozzXX version  (?>tape trading>Cdr>EaC>Wav>Trader's Little Helper>flac>you)
Lineage : RozzXX flac > Audacity (Speed correction + 1,5 Gain) > Wav > Flac

What i've done is add some loud/bass on 38f version, and it sounds now far better to me that way.
RozzXX version was running too fast, so i applied speed ajustment and added gain to fit with the first half of the gig. I splitted each tracks and removed some noises, cuts etc...

NOTES: High quality transfer that Hans shared in one of his last appeareances. The files were avaiable for a very short time... Then deleted.
Hans states that this one is recorded from the radio, but I think that it's probably the soundtrack of the video, since the order of the tracks is the same,
and they're changed, the last two songs were actually the first two that were played. Anyway is professionally captured for sure.

Seems the tape showed some degradation, during In your house there's a drop in the begining, Jumping Someone Else's Train there's two drops in the middle, and Play For Today has a drop in the begining.Sound is very good. If you want to burn it to a CD, you'll have to downsample it.

Elvis Costello with Lou Reed (ProShot DVD)

Broadcast on SkyArts1

Costello welcomes rock star Lou Reed to his show, where he discusses
his career, jams with his host and gives fantastic performances of hits
such as ‘Perfect Day’ and ‘Sweet Jane’.

Chapters: Yes

What else would one expect when you get Elvis Costello interviewing Lou Reed?
And then, for good measure, getting Lou's best friend, artist/director
Julian Schnabel, up on stage for a wide-ranging, not ready for prime time
(fitting, as the whole thing took place in the fabled NBC Studio 8H where SNL
has held court all these years) rumble.

Elvis is a good interviewer and host. He's smart -- but you could already tell that
from his songs. Hearing two major songwriters going at it about
their craft is bracing. And Lou Reed, if anyone's got stories, he does.

Lou was a little out of it at first. But as the conversation wound on,
from memories of songwriter/boxing fan/gambler Doc Pomus (both Costello and
Reed wished to whatever version of God they worship they had been able to come
up with a song like "Save the Last Dance for Me") to tales of writing hot-rod
songs for Pickwick Records, Lou warmed up. By the time Schnabel got out there
and started riffing on Lou's Berlin album, the envelope was pushed. To say the least.
And it sunk in -- here were three guys who didn't have to kow-tow to anybody.
As contrived as Schnabel's appearance feels, it works. He is, truly, out there.
As is Lou. The conversation ranged, widely, from the artistic inspiration for
the shot of Bauby on the platform in the sea in Diving Bell and the Butterfly
(off script) to the right way to play the riff of “Sweet Jane” to Elvis's
eating habits when he was living with his first band, to gentrification and Brooklyn
rock. In short, daring. Fascinating.

This was not "edgy" in the marketing sense. When Schnabel described how Lou Reed
came over to his apartment and grasped his dead father's hand "while it was
still warm," it was in a whole new realm.

And after all this talk, nobody in the room, or Elvis, wanted to stop, Lou Reed and
Elvis Costello played two duets that should be preserved for eternity.
The lithe Reed, almost frail, assumed stolidity, strength and force; the powerful,
ample Costello became lithe and supple. Song one: an elegiac, acoustic guitar
and piano (Steve Nieve jet-fresh from Paris helping out) version of
Reed's "Perfect Day," and a blistering, two-electric-guitar version of his "Set the Twilight Reeling" that was unquestionably the finest rock being played on our planet at that particular moment. When Reed turned his fuzz box on, well, he showed why as a bandleader he could be called the Duke Ellington of rock. He started, built, and ended each song with Duke-like perfection, timing, that took one's breath away.

But the moment that lingers is when Schnabel, impromptu, recited the complete
lyrics of "Rock Minuet," from Reed's album Ecstasy, channeling Lou Reed and
Andy Warhol and Allen Ginsberg - even Walt Whitman. And Lou mouthing the words,
at his side, his eyes closed. The first line: “Paralyzed by hatred and a piss
ugly soul.
