RE-UPLOAD: The Sisters Of Mercy - Victims Of Circumstance - CD Version (Flac)

This is the recent australian CD bootleg,not the 7'' single or the tape that share the same name.

The sound it's probably the best you'll get for these demos and the version of "Knocking on Heaven's Door" is not faded like in the "Sins and Secrets" bootleg, don't know if that's because of the source or some audio editing by the bootleggers.

Thanks to sleepchamber for sharing this version here.

RE-UPLOAD: Sonic Youth - Brighton Beach, Brighton, UK - 05.05.1986 (MP3)

Someone asked the re-upload of this recording during the current SY flood on Dime. I only have this version in MP3, but here it is.

A rarity shared here by nashspacerocket.

In November 1985 sonic youth played a gig on brighton beach in England, it's known as "blood on  brighton beach' and one song from that show made it onto the 'walls have ears' bootleg. In May of 1986 they repeated this with That Petrol Emotion  as a support band, to promote the EVOL album. This gig is known as 'Son of blood on brighton beach'.

Lineage - my friend went down there to interview the band for a fanzine we were doing called Can't Be Beat. He took my Hitachi boombox and stood in the crowd and recorded the show on it. He then interviewed Steve Shelley, and Lee Renaldo later that evening, probably at the Zap Club but i can't be sure. I have left off the interview. This is a first generation copy i did back in 1986, cleaned up a little with Audacity. track one 'xpressway to yr skull' was a soundcheck, TPE played then SY came back on and played a short set.

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 in what has already been the start of trying 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 of 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.

We go up a little further north in the Empire State this time for a stop on the North American leg of Siouxsie and the Banshees's tour promoting "Juju." They were the headlining act, and  R.E.M. were the supporting act.

This was shared five years ago as part of Kingrue's transfers of the Stonecutter Collection [Vol 22]. That was from a first gen dub that Stonecutter made from this master. Something to clear up here is that this was not recorded by Gene as it was thought back then, but by Gene's friend Mike the Bike, a Vietnam vet whose day job was with the Mass Transit Authority as a token booth clerk stationed at the 1st Avenue and 14th Street subway in New York City. 

Some of the other well-known recordings Mike made were of R.E.M. at the club Zappa's, which was the night before this one. Per Gene, R.E.M. first met Mike when they played for free at the bandshell in Tompkins Square Park, and they put him on the guestlist for that Brooklyn show and this one in Mount Vernon. Mike lent Gene his master to dub, and Gene had meant to return the cassette as he did of Zappa's, but Mike was tragically killed in a hit-and-run accident on his bike about sixteen years ago. Over the years, Gene had forgotten he never returned the master. His memory of it was only triggered  when he went digging up material for this project and he pulled out this tape with Mike's handwriting on it specifically labeled as "orig."

For reasons unknown Mike didn't get the opening set this night from R.E.M., but what he got of Siouxsie is gold. He's right up there by the PA stack, with decent gear, the audience in the soundscape mostly drowned out or outside of the wondrous sphere of the music. McGeoch's dramatic slash and burn guitar is heightened, the bass and the drums, the snare, Siouxsie's ethereal vocals -- it's all a near-perfect stereo balance. This sounds just as fresh as it did when Mike put it down on tape the week before Halloween in 1981, capturing the vitality of a band that would put together their setlist moments before taking the stage.

The tape flip that comes near the end of "Skin" is quick and minimal, and perhaps the crowd had cleared some by the encore, with that song's sonics coming through more harshly on the recording than the rest. This still must have been a delight to receive from Stonecutter back in the tape trading days and it probably saw popular circulation amongst the cognoscenti.

Spotting monitors in the club, Siouxsie asks if the band are on the TV. This master transfer should be the ultimate upgrade of this show, but we'll reconsider if video of this show actually exists and surfaces.
