RE-UPLOAD: SPK - Radio Sessions & Live Radio Broadcast - 1983/1984 (Flac)

Thanks to Noah Wall for sharing this one on DIME. Excellent sound from FM broadcasts.

Original Info File:

The John Peel radio broadcasts were recorded at the time of the first airing. I missed the beginning of the I.C.A broadcast.

The David 'Kid' Jensen radio Session is from a M2? trade and I think that this programme was quite elusive as it was only broadcast in 'AM' at the time.

Personally I don't know what was happening when they signed to WEA but they must of been under immense pressure for a 'hit' because the Jensen Radio session is not my cup of tea ;)

RE-UPLOAD: Zola Jesus - Tour 2011/2012 (ProShot DVD)

 About a year a go, I posted a recording of a new artist that was starting to be noticed and considered a force to be dealt with. One year later Zola Jesus is not a promise anymore, her talent is a fact. So as an hommage, here's the DCR collection of proshot live clips and sessions. If you don't know her, you should check this one urgently, if you like her music, the this a must have. Check the thumbnails for image quality, in my opinion is faultless, but you may want to check it anyway.

The original torrent had faults in the transitions, namely split-second gaps of silence which jarred the continuity, and abrupt volume changes in the applause between songs caused by edits.

What I've done is -

1. Converted the shn to wav for ease of editing, then to flac
2. Cut out the split-second gaps
3. Increased/decreased crowd noise volumes between songs (and in the case of track 1-2, edited in applause from another track)
4. Realigned the track starts to where songs are introduced or where they start - this mainly affects the last track, where there is extended applause before the encore (although this has been chopped up a lot, and could not be made seamless).

The result is a show that flows together without any jarring continuity problems - a few edits are noticeable if you really listen, but they aren't at all intrusive.

Many thanks for the show to the original seeder, prologue_67!

From his info -

"This show sometimes trades as 17 July 1999. This is incorrect. The actual date is 17 June 1999. I know, I was there!"

Thanks to The Monk for sharing this one on Dime.

Original Info File:

Here's another classic AATT show from 1986... It's a soundboard recording of their appearance at the Ritz in Aachen, Germany on 15 June 1986. This is a transfer from the band's original analogue master tape, so this is the ultimate version of this show.

This is NOT the widely spread soundboard recording of the January 1986 show at the same venue, but a recording of AATT's second appearance at the Ritz. The show was recorded on a 60 min tape which ran out during the performance.

The major reason why you should get this bootleg is the second (and the 15th) track "Atlantic". "Atlantic" is a song that is too beautiful to be described in words. You just have to hear it to understand what I mean. Except from that this bootleg also brings us an interesting version of "Play dead" played on pipes and flutes where Björk is singing lots of syncopes and a wonderful, haunting version of "Violently happy" with a church-organ and some really cool djunglist-noises. The early version of "Army of me" reminds me a little bit of Sugarcubes' own "Coldsweat"-remix that you find as a bonus-track on "Life's too good" and the early version of "The modern things" is a truly beautiful one with Björk singing along to a keyboard. "Violently live" also brings you two versions of "Human behaviour". The first one just sounds like the original album-version but the second one has got some really interesting echo-effects. Björk is singing the bootleg's last five tracks with a sadder tone of voice and that fits "Human behaviour" perfect. I'm not that positive to the live-version of "There's more to life than this", though. It sounds nothing but hasty to me.
The sound quality at track 1-13 is as magnificent as if it was an official recording. Björk's voice doesn't get disturbed by the cries from the audience. Track 14-18 is recorded with a little bit worse sound-quality and the cries from the audience is spoiling many of the intros. There's a flute that follows her voice in many tracks and that sounds interesting sometimes but I could have made it without that flute. Some of the songs has got even more instruments than on the original "Debut"-album.

The Pixies - Coliseu, Lisboa, Portugal - 09.11.2013 (Flac)

Taper: circle
Recording Gear: Sony MZ-RH10 HiMD with Sony Stereo Mic ECM-MS907
Position: Center, packed inside the crowd.
Lineage: MD -> Audacity -> TLH -> Flac (Level 8)

Recording Notes:

Some things just aren't meant to be.

I had decided to not go to this concert, but at lunch time, a friend phones me saying he has an extra ticket to give away... The Pixies for free??? Sure!

One minor problem - I'm working in a city 100 Kms away, and only finish a couple of hours before the opening of the doors... Seems possible.

Second minor problem - my recording gear is at home, in another city in the oposite direction... I make the conscious decision of missing the support act As Able As Kane, and instead lose that time going home to get the gear.

Third minor problem - I seem to have misplaced my prefered microphone... After losing 20 minutes searching, I decide to take the secondary mic, that I don't use for at least two years.

Fourth minor problem - The Coliseu it's in the center of the city, and even getting there in time, parking is impossible at that time if night, I manage to find a spot, far away, and walk 10 minutes to the venue, arriving at the end of the second song of the Pixies set. Not bad, the recording will be a little incomplete.

Fifth minor problem - the venue is packed with over excited fans, but I mean over excited... (you'll listen during the recording) I manage to push myself into a more or less central spot, hardly the best conditions to tape, setup the gear while I'm being slam danced around and start recording.

Sixth Not so minor problem - Everything seems to go OK, but during Here Comes Your Man, the already over excited crowd, goes bananas!!!
All around me, people are jumping, yelling and kicking and in the midlle of all that, my MD is elbowed in such a violent manner that the batery pack loses connection and stops the recording... I only notice it at the end of the song. The abrupt ending doesn't allow the MD to write the lead out, so everything recorded until then is gone.

Seventh big problem - The battery pack connections are making a bad contact from then on, so the recording stops abruptly three more time during the concert, always with the same result, recording lost.

So what was left?

The last song and the encore... And the expense of a new battery pack.

I should've known already by the age of 42 that nothing is for free in this world...

There's a photo of the set list, courtesy of another friend of mine that managed to get it from the sound engineer, so you can see what is not on the recording.

The Sisters of Mercy - David "Kid" Jensen Session, BBC Studios, London, UK - 06.03.1983 (Flac)

Thanks to waterisnat for sharing this version on Dime, I already had posted a version of this session ages ago, but this is a more complete set, including the original broadcast, a Pre-FM version of Jolene plus the 2008 re-broadcast in MP2.

1. Jolene
2. Heartland
3. Burn
4. Valentine

lineage: pre-FM recordings -> [unknown vinyl/tape generations] -> Entertainment Or Death bootleg CD ->  wav -> remastering in Adobe Audition 3.0 (fixing DC bias offset, speed adjustment, manual click removal, phase correction, normalisation) -> FLAC (level 8) with Trader's Little Helper

Over the years these BBC session tracks have appeared on numerous bootleg LPs and CDs. In all but two cases they appear with intros and outros cut, in an attempt to remove all DJ banter. The only exceptions are the early nineties CD release "Entertainment Or Death" by legendary Sisters bootleg label Palazzograssi (trademark of quality, indeed!), and disc 1 of the "Kama Sutra" 2CD (which is, in effect, a perfect clone of the Palazzograssi disc). These are still the only two bootlegs where the four Jensen session tracks can be found with beginnings and endings intact from a pre-FM source tape. Having said that, the recordings are at least a couple of generations removed from the master and there are traces of a vinyl source in the lineage as well; more importantly the songs are all way off speed.

On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of this session BBC 6Music did a rebroadcast. This was duly torrented here in March of 2008, albeit as an unedited lossy mp2 file captured from the 160 kbps DVB-T stream. Unfortunately this transmission was marred by cross fades between the tracks, an annoying station call over the intro of Valentine and one incredibly I-N-S-I-P-I-D DJ. The good thing about it was that it presented all tracks at the correct speed.

Ever since 2008 I've been meaning to remaster the bootleg tracks and do a re-edit of the 6Music broadcast. I've finally gotten round to this. The songs you find here are taken from "Entertainment Or Death", DC bias and speed adjusted, phase-corrected and normalized (rest assured that not a single kb of music has been subjected to excessive compression or limiting!); a couple of stray clicks and pops have also been removed.

As a bonus I've included the original mp2 file of the 2008 re-broadcast, as well as the version of Jolene appearing on the "Black Planet" bootleg CD, also speed adjusted, phase-corrected and normalized.

A very good FM broadcast recording whihc I Haven't seen here before.
It's only 1 of 2 FM broadcast recordings of Japan from 1982 that I have found.

Personal aside:
I was lucky enough to see Japan live in 1979 at Ryerson College's theatre in downtonwn Toronto...

It was an awesome set by Japan that was way to short as there were two opening acts: "TRB" ?? and "F.I.S.T." of whom I've nerver heard of since.

It went all dark, just some stage whispers, then a single red spotlight appears on Mike Karn who starts vamping on the bass while moving like a robot to the music. Then Sylvain a
Too bad I was unable to record this for posterity.


Lush - Atlanta, GA, USA - xx.xx.1996 (ProShot DVD)

Thanks to the original uploader.

Original Info File:


TV Broadcast>VHS(1st GEN)>Sony Hi-Fi VCR>Plextor>PC>Edited on Nero8

Set List-

Song #2 (contains drop outs in both audio/video towards the end)


At the beginning there's a mention of the show taking place in Atlanta, GA and I searched on the net for the 96 Tours and they played in Atlanta twice in 96. So the show could have been from either of these two venues and dates:

1996-02-08  Atlanta, GA, The Point
1996-04-23  Atlanta, GA, Masquerada

I also don't know the name of the second song. Enjoy!
