digitizing notes [from J-dot; 2016]:
Long-rumored to exist, it turns out the rumors were true after all. I’m still surprised that my own audio recording was the only one of it’s kind, particularly since I was barely familiar with the band at the time. The notes I wrote some years ago to accompany my audio capture of the show sums up just about everything I could have to say about that.

The obvious question is probably going to be, “why does the audio tape have 42 minutes, and the video is one hour?”. Most of that is dead space; before and after the set, and between songs. When I “mastered” the audio cassette many years years ago, I’m certain I edited out any dead space that wouldn’t have been relevant to the band’s performance. The video at least confirms that no music is missing.

I asked the ubiquitous “Mr. Smith” to tell me the story of this video capture, but as it turns out, he had simply borrowed the VHS master from a friend, and converted it to a DVD-R, which is what I’ve extracted this fileset from. I think all I can add to his own comments is that back in the day, there a video crew would capture some performances and project them onto the overhead screens during the concerts, so that anyone in the venue might have an optimal vantage point. Many of the tapes were left in storage at the club, and during my own tenure there, one of the DJs revealed to me that many of them had simply disappeared over the years. Thankfully, a few decades after the fact, this turns out to be one of the few exceptions.

additional notes [from “Mr. Smith” ; 2016]:
They had more than one camera at First Ave. When the show was over they handed the videocassette to Nick Cave who gave the tape to the young lady in the warm up band, Timbuktu.

additional notes [from 01001010 ; 2016]:

J. made a concerted effort to find out what he could about the origin of this DVD-R, and his comments are included here. I have contacted the DIME admins, and they said that the info we were able to get was sufficient for this to share here. It doesn’t look like we still have the original cassette of the audio, but we do have the digital files J. made in 2008, if anyone still wants those.

New Order - Evening News Arena, Manchester, UK - 28.01.2006 (Flac)

New Order being Joy Division for a charity event. Very good sound. Thanks to the original uploader on Dime.

Original Info File:

'Vs Cancer'

Lineage : Master > Pc > Flac
Lineage for these files : Flac > Audacity (tracking) > Wav > TLH (sbe's & Flac8) > Dime...

Setlist :

01 - Intro (Alan Wise & Tony Wilson)
02 - Transmission
03 - She's Lost Control
04 - Shadowplay
05 - Atmosphere
06 - Twenty Four Hours
07 - Warsaw
08 - Love Will Tear Us Apart
09 - Ceremony

This came to me as a single flac file, which was run through Audacity for tracking & then TLH for sbe's & conversion to flac8...

Suitably introduced by Alan Wise & Tony Wilson, this is New Order performing as Joy Division (or as close as...) for the first'Vs Cancer' charity

show.  A very good recording indeed, the gig was well received by the audience as it wasn't an expected setlist by any means, & the show was professionally recorded as well - however, none of that has ever surfaced as far as I'm aware...

Don't turn this to mp3, decode it to wav & burn 'em...

Info gathered from MTV:
MTV NEWS: Finally, rock takes over the fashion runway this Monday night, on MTV's second annual "Fashionably Loud" blowout.
Making the music this time around are Prodigy, Tricky, and Republica, and here's a preview.

MTV: The worlds of fashion and music came together again for House of Style's Second Annual Fashionably Loud.
Models sashayed down the runway to showcase Spring '97 collections by four hot designers to the live sounds of 3 of Britain's most buzzing acts.

ANDRE LEON TALLEY, Vanity Fair Fashion Editor: I love the whole feeling of it. The mix of the music and the girls walking on this sort of
industrialized Blade Runner catwalk, it's brilliant.

MTV: Italian designer Anna Molinari's ready-to-wear was ready to go down the catwalk to tunes by Republica... Gianni and Donatella showed off
their Versace and Versus lines to the sounds of trip-hop pioneer Tricky.

CLAUDIA MASSON: So Tricky, have you ever seen a fashion show before?

TRICKY: On TV, I've never been to one though. My knowledge of fashion is limited, very limited, very limited.

TODD OLDHAM: I know you've dressed so many rock stars, so how do you think music and fashion tie together?

GIANNI VERSACE: They're born together I think, why, even in the renaissance they use to dress up to play.

The Jesus And Mary Chain - The Georgia Theatre, Athens, Georgia, USA - 13.12.2016 (Flac)

As requested. I couldn´t find photos or the poster for this gig, so the one from 3 days after will haveto do... Very good sound.

Original Info File:

This post is all about freely sharing some great music, spreading the vibe of these bands, increasing sales of their goods and attendance at their shows and having a little fun.

To quote Sometimes Always - "I've been away but now I'm back."

Haven't posted anything in an age. Pretty sure I'll screw something up. But this show by The Jesus And Mary Chain, one of my fave bands of all time, needs to be shared.

Heard about the new LP coming in 2017 and went to ye olde internets to see what was up. Clicked on tour dates  and there they were - four weird little US dates happening within 5 days of each other. I hadn't seen the boys since 2012 and decided the 8 hour round trip to Athens was of no consequence.

Best case scenario I was gonna get a road test of the new record. Worst case scenario I was gonna get a JAMC show filled with great tried and true material. Jim addressed the new record one song in and said they simply hadn't been able to rehearse it yet so no "Damage And Joy" tonight save foir the old new "All Things Must Pass". Either way, the band sounded great. Got my first "Nine Million Rainy Days" since 1990. Jim broke 3 mic stands during the course of the evening. Good times. Sample link attached. Y'all enjoy.

1. Intro
2. April Skies
3. Head On
4. Far Gone & Out
