Sonic Youth - Sputnik Kino, Berlin, Germany - 17.04.1985 (Flac)

Very good audience recording. Thanks to Dimenew for sharing on Dime.
Original Info File:

from DIMENEW collection # 084

Rec. Info:
unknown lineaged audience recording, but the absence of almost all hiss lead to the conclusion that this is very low generated, maybe 1st or 2nd. gen.
Also, no info about the equipment used. Judging the sound it might've been recorded via a walkman recorder with internal mic.
This cassette (TDK SA90) -> playback on Harman Kardon CD491 -> Zoom H2n (at WAV 16/44) -> SDcard -> HD -> Audacity (edit/remaster) -> WAV 16/44 -> TLH8 -> FLAC -> DIME ->
YOUR EARS AND MIND... Sound is fair to good, with occasional bursts of distortions, but nothing really serious...

Alrighty, fellow Dimers, let's start a little Sonic Youth flood with recordings from the mid to end 80's, which were in the new Box of Tapes from dear DIMENEW. Hope you will
enjoy, what our team has to offer for your listening pleasure. So, let's start with a fine show recorded in (then) West-Berlin at the great Sputnik-Kino. SB.

FULL SHOW (60:35 min.)

01. Halloween (5:17)
02. Brave men run (4:40)

Some vintage Alice Cooper, in excellent sound quality.  Horrible dj babbling over the intros/outros, so I added fades where needed.

Not a remaster, this is a straight transfer.

Thanks to the original uploader.

Original Info File:

This is a blistering soundboard recording, unfortunately after Youth Camp/Better Never Than Late it degenerates into a vocals and guitar maelstrom.  Nevertheless it's a very good representation of this faboulous band.

I've had the tape since about 1982 so I think it's fairly low generation and although it appears on many trade lists I've never seen it on Dime, at least while I've been a member.  This is a  fresh remaster of that tape.

Alio Die & Amelia Cuni - APSARAS (Free Download, just this weekend)

Get it while you can.


You can put in whatever amount you like when you "buy" the download here, and "zero" is always an option. Chip in a little something if you can; that would be appreciated.

Physical copies of this 2001 CD are on sale for $7 at the Projekt webstore:


Amelia Cuni – dhrupad singing
Stefano Musso – drones and samples, sounds and treatments, album images

In Hindu mythology, the Apsaras are female spirits of nature, usually water nymphs. Flowing in the waters, these celestial nymphs come out of the waves like the first seed of the mind: desire. Talented artistically, the Apsaras are very beautiful; charming musicians and dancers for the pleasure of the Gods.

Ink 19 wrote: “Like its namesakes, Apsaras is also breathtakingly beautiful, combining soothing electronic textures, drones, and organic sound samples from Alio Die (Stefano Musso) with the amazing North Indian dhrupad singing of Amelia Cuni… A truly outstanding album for fans of dark ambient textures or hypnotic, sensuous South Asian singing.

Satanique Samba Trio - Bad Trip Simulator #2 (Free Download)

Someone on Dime started posting bootlegs of this band, so I followed the link to their bandcamp to check them out, mostly because of the excellent name of the band.

It seeems that they don't play samba, and they're not a trio, but a sextet, not so sure about the satanic part also, but they do an unholy racket, so it fits perfectly as a soundtrack to this halloween season.

If you like them, maybe you can purchase some of the other releases to help the band.

Various Artists - Psychedelic Britannia - Documentary (720p MKV)

A BBCFour Broadcast, Friday October 23, 2015

Run time:-  59:22

Documentary exploring the rise and fall of the most visionary period in British music history: five kaleidoscopic years between 1965 and 1970 when a handful of dreamers reimagined pop music. When a generation of British R&B bands discovered LSD, conventions were questioned.
From out of the bohemian underground and into the pop mainstream, the psychedelic era produced some of the most ground-breaking music ever made, pioneered by young improvising bands like Soft Machine and Pink Floyd, then quickly taken to the charts by the likes of the Beatles, Procol Harum,
the Small Faces and the Moody Blues, even while being reimagined in the country by bucolic, folk-based artists like the Incredible String Band and Vashti Bunyan. The film is narrated by Nigel Planer with contributions and freshly-shot performances from artists who lived and breathed the
psych revolution - Paul McCartney, Ginger Baker, Robert Wyatt, Roy Wood, the Zombies, Mike Heron, Vashti Bunyan, Joe Boyd, Gary Brooker, Arthur Brown, Kenney Jones, Barry Miles, the Pretty Things and the Moody Blues.

This is another trip in the time machine!!!  Old tapes dusted off a few years ago!  This master was transfered on CD about 9 years with the generous help of Martin Dupras a true Killing Joke authority (next to me of course!).  The second night of what was a killer show, this recording might have surfaced before in one form, shape or another...but this is my recording, I have the entire show but released tracks from the 10" EP "HA" have been removed.  One hot August night in this small Toronto club, everybody was standing on their chairs KJ gave quite a performance and the sound was amazing thanks to the late Conny Plank at the soundboard!  Lineage is fairly accurate except I can't remember the model number on the Aiwa mikes but I had Dolby off as you can hear a light hiss from the tape.  Feel the sweat, the intensity, one true great concert for the ages enjoy!

We've Got A Fuzzbox And We're Gonna Use It!! / Ted Chippington / The Nightingales - Leeds Polytechnic, Leeds, UK - 08.07.1986 (Flac)

HUGE Thanks to Egg_Crisis for sending me this recordings to share here.

This was the Vindaloo Tour with The Nightingales & Ted Chippington, starting in Croydon on July 2nd and ending in Nottingham on July 16th.  At Leeds The Nightingales went on first, then Ted then Fuzzbox.  They didn't always play in that order though, taking it in turns for who headlined.

This was my 3rd gig, and the second gig I ever taped.

The Nightingales

I missed the start of the first song.  I found the lyrics online and none of the lyrics are missing from the recording so although track 1 is quite short I don't think much of it is missing (unless it had a very long intro).

Lineup: Magz, Vix, Jo, Tina [no point naming the instruments as they changed over every few songs!]

As soon as the first song started everyone at the front started moshing and people surged back to avoid them and I was knocked to the ground.  Then the tape wouldn't record for more than a few seconds without jamming and I had to take the cassette out of the recorder and wind up a load of slack with my finger before I could continue recording, so the first song is incomplete but the rest of the gig recorded without a hitch.

Music For Misfits: The Story of Indie - Episode 3 - "Into The Mainstream" (MKV)

Thanks to dfb0308 for posting this excellent rip in TTD.

Broadcast on BBC4 HD, 16th October 2015

"It's 1989 and a new grassroots music craze is sweeping across Britain. Despite the authorities railing against 'the zombification of a nation', acid house and its bed-partner ecstasy are influencing a wave of indie bands. On the eve of a new decade, while original independent labels struggle in the wake of acid, young indie labels Heavenly and Creation are thriving, signing both Manic Street Preachers and Primal Scream respectively.

By the mid-90s, in a bid to break the stranglehold of American grunge bands, the music press construct Britpop and push two bands, Oasis and Blur, to the top of the pile.
The series is presented by BBC Radio 6 Music's Mark Radcliffe and this episode features exclusive interviews with performers including Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand, Shaun Ryder of Happy Mondays, the Libertines' Carl Barat, Stuart Murdoch from Belle & Sebastian and Bob Stanley of Saint Etienne. It also includes interviews with a number of influential music industry figures such as James Endeacott, formerly of Rough Trade Records and founder of Sony BMG subsidiary record label 1965 Records, Heavenly Recordings' Jeff Barrett, Creation Records' Alan McGee and indie music author Richard King."

Hello music lovers,
The Young Gods are in composition mode. That is why there has not been much news of late and why there is no live action at the moment.
Nevertheless here is a bit of action, we have prepared for you what we call « the remix project »: every week from Oct.1st until the end of the year, you will find on this page a link to a free download remix. Each remix is unreleased and is graciously given to us by prestigious people and newcomers. You will find dancefloor, ambient and experimental interpretations of our songs.

Music For Misfits: The Story of Indie - Episode 2 - "The Alternative 80s" (MKV)

Thanks to dfb0308 for posting this excellent rip in TTD.

Broadcast on BBC4 HD, 9th October 2015

"The story of British indie over three musically diverse episodes. Much more than a genre of music, it is a spirit, an attitude and an ethos.

Episode 2 explores a time when the independent labels transformed from cottage industries into real businesses that could compete with the majors. It examines the evolution of 'indie' - a guitar-based genre of music with its own sound, fashion and culture. Independent record labels provided a platform for some of Britain's most groundbreaking artists at this time, including the Jesus and Mary Chain and the Smiths, who would burst onto the scene in 1983 staging a mainstream intervention and starting a small revolution.
The programme concludes in the late 80s with the Madchester scene, as alternative music crossed over into the mainstream chart. This breakthrough was inspired by a merging of indie rock and the burgeoning acid house culture, and it was led by a new crop of bands such as the Stone Roses and Happy Mondays."
