The Sisters of Mercy - Rolling Stone, Milano, Italy - 10.03.1991 - Complete (Flac)

The taper, Marco L. sent me this recording to be posted here, a HUGE Thank You to him for his generosity.

Not only the recording is very good, as it's the complete recording, including Flood II, which as been absent on the more common version, the Rise and Reverberate Vinyl bootleg.

The photo comes from the photographer Massimo Rana's wix page that contains a lot of excellent photos from this concert, and he's selling prints: go there and check it.

Fields Of The Nephilim - Reading Festival, Reading, UK - 28.08.1987 (Flac)

This recording was left by the taper on the comments of the a previous recording of this concert. Our THANK YOU to him for sharing it here. This is not the same recording that was posted here before and it's on YouTube:

So this should be considered an alternative version. The sound quality it's a bit unstable, probably due to this being an outdoor recording and the taper being far away. It's also missing the intro, starting directly on the first song.

Here's the latest installment of the Gene Poole Collection, a random wellspring of recordings which have recently surfaced. To paraphrase Lou: This is gonna go on for a while, so we should get used to each other, settle back, pull up your cushions, whatever else you have with you that makes life bearable to kick off the new decade...

Some of Gene's handiwork has probably been heard by your very ears before, for the most part via the Stonecutter Archives, but this is the first major unearthing of tapes direct from the legend himself. As promising as that may seem, it's best to let the surprises hit as they are shared. The trade-off to the prolific taping on Gene's part is that the expectations for a perfect track record would be unrealistic and unfair. There will be instances of incomplete recordings, caused by late arrivals to gigs, recorder and mic malfunctions, and other assorted foibles as would befall any mortal taper. There will be times where a master from another source exists which could be superior. For the most part, Gene recorded with a variety and mics and recorders, and many shows suffered from wire dropouts, so that only one channel was extant in the capture. Due warning about the past imperfect given and out of the way, credit should be given where due as well -- for many shows thought lost forever, it's exciting to discover that many of these even in incomplete form have now cropped up.

The transfers, the audio fixes, and the research all have required some lead time -- many tapes had scant info (sometimes just the name of the artist/band, with no date listed for the performance). Needless to say, gear documentation is virtually nil -- if we wait around for that precise detail to be forthcoming, nothing from the collection would probably see the light of day.

This time we give you the two Richard Lloyd sets that bookended the Dumptruck set in the prior volume, so your near-complete experience of being at CBGB back on this date 34 years ago can be fulfilled. Since Richard didn't go on for his second set until 2:00AM, you could technically say that took place on Sunday, 9 March, but why complicate matters.

Richard had cleaned himself up by 1985 or so, and he and the band put in two strong sets here. Like the forward-thinking Dumptruck, the song selections are focused mainly on the second album; he gives his 1979 debut solo LP "Alchemy" no love despite repeated audience requests. His CBGB shows in April of the following year, released on "Real Time," saw him revisiting some cuts from "Alchemy" and playing more of a mix of the two albums. Here he covers Elvis, Dylan and the Thirteenth Floor Elevators (or Television if you must). "Highway Signs" is a new tune which Richard only popped out of the oven two days earlier, and it would eventually find its way on "Lodestones," a digital only release in 2010 (which was subsequently released on physical media on Record Store Day in 2018). Not really the shining moment of a great Richard Lloyd discography, it sounds so much like "Lowdown" it weighs down the flow of the night with its redundancy. For a rare track, "Tramp" is a much better selection. Thankfully the guitar work is alchemically stellar throughout as you'd expect. The classic tongue twister that Richard succeeds in reciting is impressive considering it was probably close to 3 in the morning when he decided to pull that stunt off.

A relatively decent capture from Gene, but he was having some issues with others at the show, possibly crowding and knocking into him. The record button slips a few times during the first set, in "The Only Feeling" and "Watch Yourself." "Lowdown" is slightly muffled as he momentarily loses his jacket during the song. A better recorder might have helped, but you're still getting served the two scoops nonetheless.

RE-UPLOAD: The Rose Of Avalanche - Janice Long Session - 05.03.1986 (Flac)

Thanks to the original uploader.

Original Info File:

Recorded 5th March 1986, first transmitted 11th March 1986

01 A Stick in The Works
02 Too Many Castles In The Sky
03 Never Another Sunset
04 Velveteen


Phil Morris - Vocals
Alan Davis - Bass
Paul James Berry - Guitar
Glenn Schultz - Guitar
Steve Allen - Keyboards

The session is notable for the appearance of an early version of Never Another Sunset, which disappeared from their repertoire until being release as the title track of their first full studio album in 1989.

Janice Long played Castles a lot when it was released as a single, which is when I really became aware of the band.

If anyone has any Rose of Avalanche tapes that haven't been on dime, please get in touch.

I have no idea of the date of this one. Discogs says the band formed in Dec 1986 and I got the tape in Oct 1989 so any time between those dates.  They're a folk rock band from York, I remember friends mentioning them but never saw them.  Listening to the recording now it sounds a little out of place among the other tapes, but anyway, here it is.  And ooh, listen to that hiss between songs!  This must have gone a few generations!

Death Cult - Paradiso, Amsterdam, Netherlands - 28.07.1983 (Flac)

Very interesting audience recording. Thanks to Stacheleber or sharing it on Dime.

Original Info File:

from MILAVALENTI collection # 082

The MILAVALENTI collection consists mostly of 80's and some 90's and 2000's masters in generally great sound. Most of the concerts which will be uploaded from this collection are uncirculated. I met the taper who is an old friend of mine recently after more than 20 years.
He was happy to give me his very precious gems to be presented to a wider public. In the 80's I often went to concerts with him and sometimes both of us were recording.
So some of the recordings which will be uploaded have been uploaded by me before as of my masters collections and some of his recordings which had been uploaded by me already as first gen copies will now be re-uploaded as master transfers.
The musical style varies from "normal Rock acts" to Wave/Punk and Avantgarde. Also some German Post-Punk acts are included.

AUD master recording.
Recording equipment: SONIC SS 808 with integrated One Point Stereo Microphone

master recording / cass transfer via Onkyo tapedeck TA-2330 -> Magix Audio & Music Lab (edit/remaster) -> FLAC -> DIME
G+/VG-, some equalizing was done (check sample). Sound level adjusted. At high level the sound is quite distorted.

This recording seems to be very rare and at least was not on dime before. The sound is not perfect due to the distortions but still ok. The band as "Death" Cult existed only from April 1983 to January 1984 and this was one of their first gigs (the first one to be in Oslo, Norway on 25 July 1983).

Setlist (tape length 47:13 min.):

The left channel dropped drastically in the left channel for a few seconds near the beginning of the recording as well as most of Ravishing, so I copied from the right channel for those parts.  I'm told that SA90's don't hold up so well over time compared to the more standard D90's.

Extremely cool share by Egg_Crisis. 2 sources for the 1988 FOTN gig in Leeds.

With Dawn After Dark as support.

Tape flip during Volcane.  For some reason I lost track of time and turned the tape over after just 30 minutes even though I was using a 90, the rest of the main set ran for a further 25 minutes though so I had enough tape, and put a new tape in for the encores.

I've also included a partial 2nd source recorded by a friend, the vocals sound clearer in this version (apart from the first song which is muffled because she's moving through the crowd). The tape recorder also had a radio and the switch kept getting knocked onto the radio, just recording whitenoise for those parts.

In 1988 I made a tape that used the 2nd source (minus the first muffled track) + my tape for the rest of it.  I don't know if any of those tapes found their way onto the net, but if you have a version where the quality changes for those songs - that's why.

Tape flip after Why Lie.

Of the three gigs Salvation played at the Duchess in Dec 88, March 89 and this one, the audience was larger each time.  On this night the place was quite packed.

11 minutes into the gig a stage diver landed on me right at the end of Payola and smashed the tape recorder!  (It's disappointing that you can't hear any crash, it just stops.)  I put the pieces into my pocket.  A few minutes later I needed the toilet and took the opportunity to have a look at how badly damaged the tape recorder was.  Some of the plastic panels had come apart but I was able to clip it all back together and nothing was irreparably broken apart from the door being missing.  I missed 2 and a bit songs and the tape recorder served me well for many more years.

Members of Yellow Magic Orhestra (YMO)

YMO joined the band near the end of the set on various songs.

earlier seeder's comment:
This is one of the last shows Japan ever played! Members of Yellow Magic
Orchestra (YMO) join the band near the end of the set on various songs. The
recording was originally captured from its broadcast on Ryuichi Sakamoto's
"Sound Street" radio. As with nearly all Sylvian related boots before 2001,
lineage is unknown. The tracks on tape are superior but the tape was missing
the three tracks that had to be added in from vinyl. Taking Islands in Africa
seems to have been a little warped on the LP it was taken from, the other two
tracks blend in surprisingly well.

I used noise reduction and FFT EQ filters optimized for both sources, and spent
a LOT of time trying to get a good balance between cleaning up the sound and
leaving original frequencies and integrity intact. I basically tryed to make up
for the alterations caused by a tape transfer, then match the vinyl tracks to
the sound that came out of that. EQ is still a *little* rough because I decided
to err on the side of caution (you can always tweak on your own). In the end I'm
very pleased with the results, and am glad I used a light touch, hiss is
noticable on some of the softer tracks but isn't distracting like it was before.
This show was mixed by John Punter, so I didn't want to destroy his work.

RE-UPLOAD: The Sisters Of Mercy - Suffer In Vain (Flac)

Lineage: Bootleg Silver CD -> TLH -> Flac (level 6)


Bootleg with songs from 2 concerts of 1991. Tracks 1 to 9, 11 to 13 are from Citi Club, Boston, USA - 29 March 1991, tracks 10 and 14 are from Popular Creek Music Theater, Chicago, USA - 12 July 1991.

For a long time this silver bootleg has been labeled as Popular Creek Music Theater, Chicago, USA - 12 July 1991, probably because of the inclusion of Stop Draggin' my Heart around, wich was only played in this concert during 1991, a cappella.

The reason of this improvisational moment from Andrew Eldritch is the crash of Doktor Avalanche during Body and Soul (wich was cut halfway). A lot of fans of the band had already noted that Body and Soul is complete in this bootleg, so at least that song wasn't from the Chicago concert.

Since I'm not an expert on the post 1985 TSOM, I asked the assistance of Heartland Forum Meth to try to figure out wich songs where from wich concert. He managed to solve the puzzle and also noted that the songs from the Chicago concert don't seem to be from the same source as the complete recording of that concert that is in ciculation. So maybe a second complete source of this concert exist.

Huge THANK YOU to Meth for helping figuring out the venues of the songs.

Cassette(aud,master,TDK D90,recorded on Saisho PS 35R with built-in mic) > wav > Soundforge(normalise uneven L+R channels) > CDWave(split on sector boundaries) > flac(6)

2nd on the bill, after Groovin' With Lucy and before Ghost Dance.

The vocals were VERY quiet for their whole performance, almost inaudible.  It's always assumed the sound man will adjust stuff like that during the first song, but not in this case. The band seem to go down badly but much of the blame goes to the sound man for not bringing the vocals up.  Normally I'll nip over to discogs and get some album tracklists to look at while I listen... and try and match any of the titles to what I'm hearing, but with this it's not possible so I can't even begin to have a guess at a setlist.

"The New York City noise-rock band DUSTdevils was led by British expatriate Michael Duane, who formed the group during the mid-1980s with Australian-born singer/bassist Jaqi Dulany. Originally based in Leeds, England, Dustdevils issued a handful of records on the Rouska label before hopping the Atlantic." -Discogs.

Although the singer introduces most of the songs I'm not always sure what he's saying, so one or two of the song titles may be wrong.  Corrections welcome!

Again Thanks to Egg_Crisis for another rarity.

Bonus track was quiet and needed dehissing with Adobe Audition-Hiss reduction-Light setting.
Tape flip after Trees, the end of the song is very slightly cut (the song was coming to an end, there's only a few seconds missing.)

She Cries Alone also cuts out at the end.  The song was coming to an end but the ending is different to earlier versions - the drums continue.. as if they're going into another song.

I only have that one song from Croydon Underground so added it as a bonus track.

Anne-Marie's final show with Skeletal Family was around 2 months after this gig, in July.  I'm told at least one show from July exists as audio, but I don't have it.

Performed by...
Robin Guthrie - Bass VI, Pedals, Loops and Effects
Steve Wheeler - Bass
Antti Makinen - Drums

The performance:
Much has been lauded about the best guitarist in the world over Rock and Roll history. Suffice it to say there have been many arguments over who is/was the fastest over the years (Time magazine's #9 pick Yngwie Malmsteen, anyone?). Still, I have never heard any arguments over who is the "slowest".
Robin Guthrie formerly of "The Cocteau Twins" would be best suited for this category. To say it doesn't require as much technical proficiency to play the guitar in this manner, would be a gross mistake. Guthrie creates lush "aural landscapes" by looping and layering several guitar sounds over one another, something the Scottsman has been doing for 30+ years. It does take talent, skill and creativity to play each note and to suspend them in ether, giving the listening enough time wrap their mind around the music. Though not likely a candidate for The Rock and Roll Music Hall of Fame (don't get me started),  he has had an indelible impression on several other artists and guitarists over the years including Robert Smith and The Edge.  

The recording...
I have intentionally left the quieter moments quiet. Much of the strength of this performance is through the subtlety and the dynamic range. Portions of the songs that employ bass and drums will be LOUDER whereas the guitar soloing will be quieter. That's OK, really. If not feel free to re-master for
personal use only and run everything up to -.1dB. My nemesis the "Yuh Yuh" guy makes his infamous appearance including his unique brand of bird calls. Much of this is done between songs and doesn't distract from the performance too much, otherwise an EX- perhaps.

I really could use some help on this one. I regretfully did not grab a set list. I was only able to identify the four tracks he played during the KEXP performance + five other for certain. Perhaps one of the more ardent Cocteau Twins - Robin Guthrie fans could have a stab at this one.

Oh and if you enjoy the stylings of...
Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance, My Bloddy Valentine, Brendan Perry, Robert Fripp, Michael Brook, Durutti Column, David Sylvian, Christian Fennesz, Brian Eno, Daniel Lanois, Bill Nelson, latterday Talk Talk, John Foxx, David Gilmour, The Orb, Massive Attack and of course, Harold Budd.

Please support the artist by buying his latest albums "Emeralds" and "Bordeaux" on Darla Music Group out now!

Thank-you to my followers and supporters not the least of which fellow taper klingklang and of course my brother.

Tape flip came about a minute before the end of the last song.  Quality isn't great, either the batteries were a bit flat or it was quite loud, possibly a bit of both.

The first part of Phobia seems to be an early version of what would later become The Watchman. It seemed better to leave it as one track rather than split it.

Tape story:
This is my first recording "abroad" (I mean, out of Italy).
The venue is a small club at Lisbon port area.
I arrived early so I could check the spot with the better sound, about 10 m from the stage.
People completely into the show with acceptable clapping and someone at my left singing (very good!) the first Closer tracks.
Another very good recording but again (as in Roncade) several small dropouts appeared.
I am sorry for this because in the meanwhile I have taped Depeche Mode, Editors and Franz Ferdinand without problems... seems Peter Hook has a "special" effect on my equipment.
Since I have found the mic's cable severely twisted, maybe my occasional movement (I was taping, but I was also into the show) were "registered" as excessive tension by the cable plugin... just an hypotesis.
Anyway the problem is limited to only four tracks (5, 13, 16 and 18) and the quality of the recording has been substantially preserved.

What about the show?
It was my second Peter Hook And The Light show in two months (the first one was the Movement/PCL set in Roncade, taped too).
I flew to Lisbon just in the afternoon and I enjoyed a 2-day holiday in this fine and friendly town.
I have decided to give me a chance to attend to the Unknown Pleasures/Closer set because I missed it in Italy two years ago and I feared this was one of the last chance to catch it... at a reasonable distance.
As a matter of fact I have really appreciated the previous show and my positive feeling was confirmed by this one.
Another quality show, with one of the longest setlist ever (32 live tracks).
Peter Hook And The Light has won the challenge with its genuine passion (more than a tribute band) and offers 2 hours and half shows at an unusual low price (less than 20 euros in Roncade and 25 euros in Lisbon).
I have never thought to listen Decades played live by one of the original JD members (that songs really moved me and is worth the money spent for the flight and the hotel).
And it is my great pleasure to share this recording with you.

Technical notes:
- The total running time of the recording was 2:56:32; I have cut the first 4:44 mins of intro recorded music from PA and the last useless 6 secs reducing the master firstly to 2:51:42.
- Secondly, I have amplified both channels (+9.0 dB)
- Thirdly, I have divided the recording in three separate parts, "New Order" set (0:39:08), "Closer" set (0:43:51) and "Unknown Pleasures + Encore" set (1:10:02), deleting about 15:15 and 3:25 mins of recorded music from PA between the three sets.
- "New Order" set: I have faded-out the last 10 secs.
- "Closer" set: I have faded-in the first 5 secs and faded-out the last 10 secs.
- "Unknown Pleasures + Encore" set: I have faded-in the first 5 secs and faded-out the last 10 secs.
- If you burn to audio CD, you will need 2 CDs, but I suggest 3 CDs (CD1: 01-08; CD3: 09-17; CD2: 18-34)

Please do not sell nor convert to mp3 for distribution (mp3 only for personal use!)
Feel free to share in the way you prefer, but please share this fileset as originally torrented (so preserve file integrity!)
