Good Cult bootlegs are rare to come upon. There is the inevitable rarity of good quality recordings on the basis of the fact we're talking about bootlegs here in the first place, and secondly The Cult's prowess as a live band varies largely dependant upon how out of it Ian Astbury is on any given night. That said, Thir13en's remaster of 'Rebirth Of The Phoenix' has, for a good few year now, blown any of their officially released recordings out of the water, despite being from a period in their history considered by many fans to be questionable.

The show comes from the same questionable period as the afforementioned recording. Actually it comes a few years after, from the tour for their massively audience-splitting self-titled effort. As with most BBC recordings, this is not the complete set. Those of you who ain't so much into the self-titled can relax though as only two songs from that album are represented here. The rest of the recording finds the band on surprisingly good form, despite all the internal drama that was going on in the band at the time.

The source for this was already very good. Some gentle beefing up the guitars needed here and there, a bit of widening (mostly on the upper ranges), but I've not doctor'd things too much. The recording isn't as good as 'Rebirth of the Phoenix', but I'd put it on par with their officially released stuff. At best, it can even move one towards some slight re-evaluation of an oft overlooked period in the band's history.

5. Blackboard Sky
6. Hollywood the Second Time

10. Far Side of Crazy
11. A Lot of Shit (improv) / Ain't My Day
12. Do It Again
13. Mexican Radio
14. The Grass is Greener

This is my best-sounding recording of a "Happy Planet" era Wall of Voodoo show - it's certainly recorded from the
soundboard, and the lack of tape hiss makes me think that this was originally transferred to CD from a
low-generation source.  The mix is really weird for the first minute of "When the Lights Go Out", but it evens
out from there.


Of note:

- There are three "improv" style songs in the set - these weird one-off songs were a hallmark of the Andy Prieboy

- Although it wasn't officially released for several more years, "Shouldn't Have Given Him a Gun For
Christmas" sounds surprisingly similar to the studio version.  Andy even sings the snippet of the drunken
"O Tannenbaum" that was sampled from another source in the studio version.

- "Mexican Radio" is performed in its traditional version, as opposed to the "heavy metal" aka "boogie" version
that the band often played during this era.

RE-UPLOAD: Television - Adventure Studio Session Outtakes - 1978 (Flac)


Huge Thanks to Dave sez for sending me this one to share here.

AKA I Need A New Adventure

From the Dave Sez archive: outtakes from Television's second album "Adventure", recorded amidst some acrimony at Bearsville Studios, 1978. Playing with Patti Smith from 1975 onwards, Television released the seminal albums "Marquee Moon" (1977) and "Adventure" (1978), but following major conflicts between Verlaine and Lloyd, the group disbanded in summer 1978 with a last gig at the aptly named Bottom Line Club in New York ( The group reformed briefly for a further album "Television" and official live CD "Live at the Academy" in 1992, but the reformation did not last long, and the group again fell silent until live gigs in 2001 and following years. Lloyd finally left the group in summer 2007, replaced by guitarist Jimmy Rip.
The crown jewels of any Television bootleg collection are the 1975-76 studio demos for the first album ( and the extremely rare recording of outtakes and extras from the second, presented here in FLAC.

Track List:

1 Ain't That Nothin' 
2 Adventure 
3 Glory

5 Foxhole 
6 Carried Away (aka Vibrato Song)

Second show by the Furs in Portugal and a very good one. Touring World Outside an album that i like a lot and unfortunatelly is underrated. The band kick in with Only You and I and left with Forever Now without an encore but delievered 17 powerfull songs.
I recorded this with my old Sony TCS-300 and it turned out to be not one of its most brilliant recordings but it is quite listenable i think.
It is the first time i convert my master to digital format the only trades were done at the time and on tape and i don't have a clue on how much this show has circulated.
This is a clean copy from the Master.
Enjoy and share

The History:

Gary Numan's self-defined "Machine Music Era" (Replicas, The Pleasure Principle and Telekon) has left an indelible mark on many people including yours truly. There are entire websites devoted to this all too brief two year period between April 1979 (Replicas release) to April 1981 (Wembley Farewell shows) in which these three U.K. #1 albums were released. In fact, Trent Reznor has cited this period of Numan's career as having created the blueprint for Nine Inch Nails. Many would argue that their styles of music are indeed very different. However, themes of dystopia, isolation and paranoia dominate both of their oeuvres. Numan's use of synthesizers AND more traditional instruments (guitar, bass, drums, piano and strings) wasn't entirely unique even during its time, but the way Numan combined these elements WAS. In fact, at one point the British Musicians Union wanted to have his music banned. It was not because of any obscene content. It was because they felt that he was putting real "honest" musicians out of work through his use of synthesizers! Wow! Times really
have changed. Over the years Numan has held many roles: Composer, Producer, Pop-star, Media Pariah, Pilot and perhaps most importantly Family Man. He hasn't always been held in such high esteem even by his own standards.
The same insecurities and sense of alienation that created such brilliant works as "Are 'Friends' Electric", "Metal" and "I Die: You Die" would later serve to undermine his career. It's not so much a story of excess or hubris as much as a story of insecurity and an inabilty to assess his own talent. The British press at the time were all too happy to label him as a weird talentless freak. Because of his robotic presence (stage fright) and propensity to stare at people (social affectation), they would dub him "Scary Numan". Now that term is used in reverence by tribute acts and even Boy George's latest DJ mash-up...

Furthermore, it didn't help that at the time he was a Thatcherist while other bands like The Clash and The Specials were railing against the Monarchy. The tabloids and music press were vitriolic and merciless. This only strengthened the loyalty and resolve of his fierce fans or "Numanoids". They would show up at concerts dressed in his various album personas and even stage a "sit-in" at the BBC for their unwillingness to play his music. John Peel was the rare exception. He booked Tubeway Army and Numan for two separate sessions in 1979. Gary would later be invited back to
Maide Valle only some 20 years later. He now has several people including Radcliffe and Marconi at BBC6 who cite his strong influence on a new generation of artists. Now 35+ years later the press label him as "The Godfather of Electronic Music" (GQ-UK - 2011) and "Industrial Pioneer". Times have really changed indeed!

The Performances:

From the opening chords of "Replicas" it is evident that much time and consideration was spent in preparation for these events. Instead of trying to maintain a note-for-note, sound-for-sound recreation of the songs like on the album tours, Numan has opted to update several arrangements while remaining very faithful to the originals. One such example is "Metal". It has returned to its orignal album composition and been stripped of its Things Falling Apart "M.E." outro. It still maintains the ferocious guitar riffs of the updated live version. That's not to say that everything has been re-created. "Cars" still sounds like the Fear Factory industrial hybrid model that came out in 1998.
Gary relied pretty heavily on vocal notes for some songs (some of which are enclosed). I can't say that I blame him.
Many of these (Telekon) have not been performed in nine years! "Are You Real?" from Tubeway Army's debut hasn't been performed since 1998! For the lucky few that got these handwritten sheets, I commend you! And for the haters that say Gary doesn't really play guitar, his Les Paul was adorned with a crib sheet with the chord changes on the first night.
It's pretty clear that both his guitar playing (mostly Barre chords) and synthesizer playing (right hand noodling) is pretty limited these days. I don't begrudge him that. Nobody seems to give a shit that Bono's reading a teleprompter throughout U2's live performances these days. Sorry, I digress! I won't say anything more about the performances here.
I will let you discover the rest on your own. Still, I think that all fans will be pleased if not amazed by these performances! Gary seems to be very happy and honoured with the reception from the sold out crowds! He expresse his appreciation and gratitude at the end of each show. In fact, it's the exuberant crowds that proved to be the greatest challenge to documenting these shows. All I can say is Get To London for the remaining residency at The Forum!

The Recordings:

I arrived at the venue early enough in order to secure the same prime taping location each night (hat tip to Ian). I decided to choose a spot that would pick up the main speakers but be primarily focused on the center ceiling speaker array (comprised of three "fill" speakers). My distance was approximately 12 to 15 feet from the stage dead center. The overall sound on the recordings is pretty consistant across all three nights. Vocals are very clear and at the fore with a nice stereo image. There are no phasing or other mic issues. That's not to say that all three sound perfect.
Unfortunately each night presented its own unique variables and challenges. Each have a pretty modest amount of clapping that was carefully attenuated.

Night One - Replicas: VG-
I had Picolo Pete to my left. He was really drunk and waving his arms around in people's faces. Thankfully most of his whistling is between tracks, but a fair portion is at the intros and endings to songs. I employed a few tools to reduce theworst parts. On the remaining nights he was far away and much quieter.

Night Two - The Pleasure Principle: VG
I had Trainwreck Annie to my left. She was on her third Long Island and completely trashed. She took off her stilletos and insisted on dancing with me. I obliged her for a couple of songs. She "woo-hoo'd" and "fuck-yeah'd" pretty loudly between "Cars" and "A.F.E.". Fortunately she's a foot and a half shorter than I am, so nothing blew out my mic levels. I saw her on night three. As she walked up to me I rolled my eyes and said "UH-OH"! She said "I'm sorry. Was I really that loud last night?" I replied "Yes. You Were!" She said "I'm really sorry. I've switched to coffee!" I said "That's good. Are you going to be good tonight?" She said, "Yes!" She did keep her promise and was pretty quiet as she stood six feet in front of me.

Night Three - Telekon: VG+
I had Woo-Hoo Guy to my left. He would clap and cheer loudly at the end and between songs. Fortunately he was pretty respectful during the songs. He can be heard prominently during the encore break shotcalling "Dream Police". A request that would have been better served during the band's rehearsals four days prior!

In summary, I don't consider any one of these to be my best effort. Telekon stands as probably the best of the three recordings; which suits me because there's a lot of subtlety to the material. Only level adjustments were made in order to attenuate some of the clapping, whistling and shouting. Although most are unnoticeable, some are apparent. Still, they all have their merits. Therefore they have all been bundled together for your convenience and consideration.

Of Note:

Gary performed five select tracks from his "Tubeway Army" debut over the course of the three nights.


Too many to list. I had the opportunity to see two shows on the 2008 Replicas Tour (Belfast and Dublin) and four on the 2010 Pleasure Principle (Chicago, SF and LA). Seeing Telekon performed live in its entirety was a near religious experience for me!
I actually felt electricity surge through my body during "I Dream of Wires"! "Sleep By Windows" was fucking incredible! I overheard one gentlemen state that he saw Gary on the Teletour in 1980 and that this (current) show was better. So there youhave it kids! Book your flights!

Final Notes:

My hope is that Gary reasseses his catalog material and chooses to be brave with his U.S. audiences for future live shows. Every tour beginning with 2001 Pure Tour has consisted of the new album material with catalog tracks consisting of: DITP, AFE, Cars, Films, Metal and IDYD (since 2010). On the final night the crowd went completely ape-shit after "Sleep By Windows", a track that wasn't even initially release in the States! Also, nobody "walked out" during "Please Push No More"
because it was slow. Be brave, Gary! Be brave! We can handle it! If somebody says "How come he didn't play 'Cars'? He always plays 'Cars'!" Exactly! You shouldn't play songs because people expect to hear them; you should play them because they don't.

RE-UPLOAD: Peter Hook's The Light performing Unknown Pleasures - The Music Box, Los Angeles - 11.12.2010 (Flac)


The last date of the american tour of Peter Hook' The Light, setlist consist of Unknown Pleasures plus the JD singles. Very good sound. Thank to the taper for sharing his recording.

Original Info file:

Enthusiastic crowd with a good mix of youngsters and oldsters.
Fantastic recording that clearly reveals when Hooky passed off lead bass duties with a nod to son Jack as I was positioned in front of Hook's bass cabinet whereas Jack's bass was elsewhere and not as pronounced from my vantage point.

Highlight for this taper was version of I Remember Nothing which had an inspired feel of madness compared to other 2010 performances. Perry Farrell danced around like a little kid and thoroughly enjoyed himself while singing Transmission.

For a moment during Ceremony I thought the Hookmeister was gonna have a heart attack as he backed off, grabbed his chest and had to have a swallow of something. But alas, he recovered and we'll no doubt see Closer tour next year. Enjoy it for what it was.

[additional notes from J. ; 2016]:

The source for this version was made from my own re-compiled 1st-gen master tapes, shortly after the concert. As with so many live tapes I made back then, I would often consolidate segments from multiple cassettes onto one tape, applying fade-ins, fade-outs, and occasionally, some equalization in the process. If only I still had those original tapes!

These segments happened to be from the same show, and they were on the flip side of the cassette which contained my recording of The Wolfgang Press; so there was no reason to not digitize them at the same time. The sound is a bit rough to my ears for the Thrill Kill Kult set, but I attribute that to the fact that they incorporated a lot of samples in their music, and I don’t think it translated that well to the recording. The sound for Nitzer Ebb fares a bit better, I think.

These were bookend sets for a set in the adjacent venue (Seventh Street Entry), which featured The Legendary Pink Dots - who walked on stage minutes after the Thrill Kill Kult ended their set. Nitzer Ebb was the headliner in First Avenue, and went on stage while The Legendary Pink Dots were playing in the smaller room next door. Since I was recording The Legendary Pink Dots, I was only able to catch the very last song by Nitzer Ebb, for which I never did get a title. All in all, it was a pretty good night of music, and it seems like a miracle that my batteries held up the whole time.

[additional notes: 01001010]:
These shows have never been digitized before, so this is their first time in circulation. The Legendary Pink Dots set was previously digitized, and *may* have been shared on DIME in the past, but I couldn’t find any record of it in the bot-list.

Dedicated to tapesfor2, who had this to say about my efforts to preserve the Sonic Archives tape collection:
"You shouldn't have. His recordings were at 'best' personal souvenirs. They were not quality recordings. They should not be shared. Those tapes belong on a waste dump."

RE-UPLOAD: Shriekback - Arena, Rotterdam, The Netherlands - 17.04.1983 (Flac)


And another one that should make Dave Sez happy, short but excellent. Thanks to FREDHEADSET for sharing this one on DIME. Excellent FM broadcast.

Recorded and broadcasted by VPRO Radio

Shriekback were a rock / wave band formed in 1981 in Kentish Town by Barry Andrews, formerly of XTC and League of Gentlemen (keyboards/synthesizers/vocals), and Dave Allen, formerly of the Gang of Four (bass), with Carl Marsh, formerly of Out On Blue Six (guitars/vocals) soon added to the line-up. They were joined by Martyn Barker on drums in 1983.

They enjoyed some success on the dance chart on their original Y Records label, and had a string of hits on the UK Indie Chart, and their debut album, Care (1983) was picked up by Warners in the United States.They left Y for Arista Records for 1984's Jam Science, also recruiting drummer Martyn Baker. The album reached number 85 on the UK Albums Chart, and the single, "Hand on my Heart" charted in the Top 60 in the UK. Finding little success, they switched to Island Records for the 1985 album Oil & Gold; Marsh left during the recording of the album, to be replaced by Mike Cozzi. After the follow-up, Big Night Music, Allen left to rejoin Gang of Four, and Shriekback remained a collaborative centred around Andrews. Allen would also go on to play in King Swamp and The Elastic Purejoy. Marsh was also in the band, Happyhead.

After a further album in 1988, Go Bang!, the band split up. Andrews continued working on other projects before re-forming Shriekback in 1992, although after the single "The Bastard Sons of Enoch" and album Sacred City, there would be no further releases until 2000's Naked Apes & Pond Life album.

Both Allen and Marsh returned to the studio to contribute to the recording of Shriekback's 2003 release, Having a Moment. Since Having a Moment Andrews has recorded two albums for Malicious Damage (Killing Joke's original label) under the Shriekback moniker. Film director Michael Mann, was a fan of Shriekback, and used several of their songs in his films Manhunter and Band of the Hand, and in his television series Miami Vice.
