Tegan and Sara, live at The Forum, Melbourne Australia, 12th December 2007
The twin sisters from Calgary have found a bit too much press from their sexuality alone, and are not given enough praise for their actual music in the main, which is very damn good. Supported by Kaki King on this tour, a very fine singer in her own right, seek her out, she also had an appearance on their last album The Con, and as such joins the girls for a few in the main set.

Belle And Sebastian (supported by Jonathan Richman), live at The Wiltern, L.A., 6th September 2001

Ben Folds Five, live at the Akasaka Blitz, 20th May 1997
A great bootleg from Ben and Co., taken from an FM broadcast I think, but if you know better please do correct me. Some nice rarities here, For All The Pretty People and Mitchell Lane, written by Rob and Darren respectively, and Kane-Kaese, which is Song For The Dumped sung in their hosts language.

I've just moved this week and haven't got all of my stuff here yet, one of the things not here is my library of bootlegs. I should get them here by the new year, if not, shortly after, and anything needing replacing shall be delt with then, although I won't replace files I've replaced once already.
To the person who posted a list of files they wanted re-upping, I never published your comment, but it's still on my page here, makes life easier for me, as I won't have to search for it when I get around to sorting it out for you.
I think that's about it really, anything not requested within the comments over the past two months, feel free to do so now, but bear in mind the end of the first paragraph.
I'll keep posting over the holidays, but naturally less frequently than the past weeks, and wish you all a lovely holiday period.
Coheed & Cambria, live at the Warren Haynes Christmas Jam, Asheville Civic Center, 13th December 2008
C&C were rather an odd choice for the 20th anniversary of Warren Haynes concert series, what with Warrens band history and other, more like minded guests. That said, they are rather a kindred spirit to the whole blues jam scene, if you check out their wiki you'll see many an early influence you wouldn't naturally associate with the prog-rock band (there's no way I'd refer to them as 'emo'!).
01 Jam 02 No World For Tomorrow 03 Gravemakers & Gunslingers 04 Mother Superior 05 Favor House 06 Atlantis (Acoustic) 07 I Shall Be Released (Bob Dylan cover with Warren) 08 Welcome Home (with Warren)
Tenacious D, live at the Roseland Theater Portland, 22nd July 2000
A fairly early show from Jack, Kyle and band, with a fairly, as can be expected, playful setlist, full of little jokes and homages. I'm sure if they don't piss you off too much for simply being a fun band, or a joke if that's the way you look at it, then you'll certainly enjoy this.
Set I: 01. Gonna Have A Good Time(comes in late) 02. Warning - Exploding Brains 03. Jesus Ranch 04. There Were Bells 05. Kielbasa Sausage - Tenacious D Time 06. History Of Tenacious D 07.

Rocket Sauce - crowd Rock And Roll 17. Tenacious D Chant 18. Karate 19. Song Of Exultant Joy 20. City Hall Intro 21. City Hall 22. Kyle Took A Bullet 23. The Road
Set II: 01. KB talk 02. Fuck Her Gently 03. Set The Artist Free chat 04. Cosmic Shame - Inward Breathing 05. Hari Krishna - GNR 06. Tribute 07. Shells 08. Spiderman 09. Rock Yer Socks Off - Backstage Betties - Sex Supreme 10. Sex Supreme - Intros 11. Explosivo 12. Beatles Medley 13. The Five Needs
Belle And Sebastian, live at La Maison De Rock, Studio 105, "Black Session", 5th October 1998
Bernard Lemair does my nut in, what with his incessant gabbing between every bloody song broadcast on the famous French radio show, it's as if he's doing it on purpose because he knows people are taping and trading them or something equally as ridiculous!
Anyway, this is a fine set from Belle et al, featuring a good range of their cheeky numbers, with a magical inclusion of the Isobel Campbell (I think, she was still in the band either way) sung Poupée de Cire, Poupée de Son (Doll of Wax, Doll of Sawdust), the Gainsbourg penned, and pun-tastic, 1965 Eurovision winner. A song seemingly written explicitly for the twee Glaswegians.
#1 - The Boy Done Wrong Again #2 - Dog On Wheels #3 - Paper Boat #4 - Seeing Other People #5 - A Century Of Fakers #6 - Mayfly #7 - The Wrong Girl #8 - Dirty Dream Number Two #9 - Poupée De Cire, Poupée De Son (France Gall) #10 - Slow Graffiti #11 - I Don't Love Anyone #12 - Sleep The Clock Around (cut)
As per usual, download samples, they're not included in the Zip Sebastian Black
Mogwai, live at the Theatre of Living Arts, Philidelphia, 24th May 2001
Another band I'm shocked I haven't posted yet, Scottish post-rockers Mogwai, named of course, after the lovable creatures in the movie Critters, that, or the original Chinese demons.
Recorded during promotion for their third LP Rock Action, though only one third of the set is made up of those tracks, they've since released another three studio albums. Sadly the opening track is cut short, on the upside it is a soundboard sourced show.
01. Sine Wave (cut 02. Mogwai Fear Satan 03. Helicon 2 04. You Don't Know Jesus 05. Ex-Cowboy 06. Ithica 27Ø9 07. Christmas Steps 08. Helicon 1 09. Secret Pint 10. Punk Rock 11. 2 Rights Make 1 Wrong 12. My Father, My King
The Clash, Polydor, Micky Foote, and Give 'Em Enough Rope Demos, 1976/77/78
Do I have to give any more details than contained in the title? Probably not, but I shall say these are probably the best versions of the many around, coming from the collection D.O.A. Demos, Outtakes, Alternates. I may post the others in due course.
Polydor Demos: 01 - Career Opportunities 02 - White Riot 03 - Janie Jones 04 - London's Burning 05 - 1977
Micky Foote Demos: 01 - Preamble 02 - I'm So Bored With The U.S.A. 03 - London's Burning 04 - White Riot [Take 1] 05 - White Riot [Take 2] 06 - Career Opportunities 07 - 1977 08 - Janie Jones [Instrumental]
Fugazi, live at Irving Plaza, New York, 5th April 1995
Fugazi have been around since 1988, currently on hiatus, and they rock. They have a very cool attitude to the business of music, sticking to their indie label when majors came-a-courting, as they felt they were selling enough albums without having money to promote them, and also treat their fans with great respect. They've always tried to keep tickets prices at a reasonable cost, $5 in the US, and have a no 'slam-dance' policy, a relic from the punk/hardcore days, 'cos these people just get in the way of an enjoyable gig.
1. Intro 2. Blueprint 3. Brendan #1 4. Birthday Pony 5. Cassavetes 6. Facet Squared 7. Dear Justice Letter 8. Bed for the Scraping 9. Target 10. Promises 11. Margin Walker 12. Bad Mouth 13. Give Me The Cure 14. Guy and Ian Talking 15. Returning The Screw 16. Smallpox Champion 17. Back to Base 18. By You 19. Latest Disgrace 20. Reclamation 21. Forensic Scene 22. Long Distance Runner 23. Glue Man
Téléphone, live at Melun Salle des Fêtes, 09 January 1981
Téléphone, were a four piece French rock band, with an early spot for what is now an almost obligitary female bass player in Corine Marienneau. I think the only other ones who existed at this time were Tina Weymouth (Talking Heads), Suzi Quattro, and Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth).
They existed for ten years, 1976 to 1986, and released five studio albums, with this performance falling between the fourth and fith, Au Cœur De La Nuit (In The Heart of the Night) and Dure Limite (Hard Limit). With a traditional rock & roll sound with a little punk thrown in for good measure (punk was little more than r&r stripped back anyway), they were rather famous at the end of the '70's, gaining themselves a support slot on a Rolling Stones world tour. Not too shabby at all.
This bootleg does have a bit of hiss and warble here and there, as it's from an old cassette of course, which at times is a bit annoying but far from unlistenable (I wouldn't post it if it was!).
01 Un Homme + Un Homme 02 Crache Ton Venin 03 Fait Divers 04 Au Coeur De La Nuit 05 Ploum Ploum 06 Fleur De Ma Ville 07 La Laisse 08 Ordinaire 09 La Bombe Humaine 10 Un Peu De Ton Amour 11 Pourquoi N'essaies-Tu Pas 12 Seul 13 Métro (c'est trop) 14 Prends Ce Que Tu Veux 15 Hygiaphone
Super Furry Animals, live in Ithaca, New York, 22nd February 2008
Originally signed to Welsh indie label Ankst, a rather legendary label around these parts having helped out great Welsh acts such as Cerys Matthews, Gorkis Zygotic Mynci, Llwybr Llaethog and Los Campesinos! (The exclamation is part of their name, not over exhuberance on my part), SFA reached the masses when signed to the fledgling (and now defunct, unlike Ankst) Creation Records, before setting up their own label Placid Casual, a title often used in various forms by the boyos, though they now release their records via Rough Trade I guess they lack the organisation to release albums worldwide, but they sure manage to knock out the albums, twelve in twelve years.
01. Slow Life 02. Rings Around The World 03. The Gateway Song/Run-Away 04. Golden Retriever 05. Do Or Die 06. Neo Consumer 07. Northern lights 08. Torra Fy Ngwallt Yn Hir 09. She's Got Spies 10. Earth 1/Zoom 11. Receptacle For The Respectable 12. into the Night 13. Earth 2/Baby Ate My Eightball 14. God! Show Me Magic 15. Calimero! 16. Hello Sunshine 17. The Man Don't Give A Fuck 18. Earth 3/Keep The Cosmic Trigger Happy
Led Zeppelin, live at L'Olympia, Paris, 10th October 1969
A short, for them, set from Led Zep today, with lots of early goodies played for ages and ages as was their way. Great sound from an FM source by all accounts, I'm sure it'll be loved by diehards and passing fans alike.
Matisyahu, live at the Ogden Theater, 29th November 2008
Matisyahu isn't your usual rapper, what with the tell-tale Jewish garb, skull-cap, curly locks and all. What he is though, is very damned good. With a great band delivering reggae style music, and excellent guests (Komakozie and Trevor Hall), Matisyahu delivers his often religious inspired tracks beautifully. His debut album Youth scored a fair hit amongst those who knew about it, and I'm sure he'll grow ever larger in popularity.
Jeff Buckley, live at the Liberty Lunch, Austin Texas, April 29th 1995
Not posted any Jeff in a while, hey, I'll run out eventually! This boot is sadly incomplete, as the guy recording it got his equipment confiscated during the gig. Thankfully the security took pity on him and gave it back.
01 Dream Brother 02 So Real 03 Last Goodbye 04 Grace 05 Eternal Life 06 Kick Out The Jams 07 What Will You Say 08 Lilac Wine (cut)
Joseph Arthur, live from Studio 104 (Canal+), St-Denis France, 7th October 2008
Joseph was signed to Peter Gabriels label Real World after a copy of his demo EP landed on his table, and after he was invited to perform an audition type gig at NYCs Fez club.
Joseph takes onboard the relevances of todays technologies and fan demands, and as such his shows are recorded and sold post-gig to fans via CDRs, though I'm not sure that would be the case with this performance, as it was a TV/Radio session, and as such not his sound engineer and what have you. He's released alot of material too this year, the album Temporary People plus a host of EPs.
01. Temporary People 02. Faith 03. Say Goodbye 04. Winter Blades 05. Look Into The Sky 06. Show A Little Faith In Me
Sonic Youth, live at the Noise Fest, White Columns Gallery NYC, 18th June 1981
The first ever gig Sonic Youth played, though they were at this point called the Arcadians, Lee Raynaldo joined after seeing this show and came up with the name, as seen above he played solo. The actual line-up was: Thurston Moore on guitar and vocals, Kim Gordon, bass and vocals, Ann DeMarinis, keyboards and vocals, and Richard Edson on drums. It seems as if the songs they played at this first gig were never given names, at least none anyone outside of the band seems to know...
01 Unknown Song 1 02 Unknown Song 2 03 Unknown Song 3 04 Unknown Song 4 05 Unknown Song 5
Jonathan Richman, live on 5 All Night, Boston, 16th August 1980
This is a rip from a TV appearance Jonathan did in his hometown of Boston, with a rather comical, usually in a cringeworthy sense but at least once in a good way, interview by Matt Siegal. Also, affection is simply fabulous! It's only 20 or so mbs, no reason not to download! :-P
The Smiths, live at the Lyceum Ballroom London, 25th September 1983
An early show from the Manchester lads, featuring the three early singles and most of the first album (not released until '84), plus These Things Take Time and Wonderful Woman, originally released as 12" b-sides. The show's cut off at the beginning, as the first track starts mid-song, but it's a good sounding recording for its age.
01 Pretty Girls Make Graves 02 Wonderful Woman 03 Miserable Lie 04 Reel Around The Fountain 05 I Don't Owe You Anything 06 Hand In Glove 07 What Difference Does It Make? 08 These Things Take Time 09 Hand In Glove
Sigur Ros, live at Laugardalshöllin, Reykjavik, 28th August 1999
An excellent bootleg from Sigur for you, an FM broadcast from what is pretty much, in sporting terms their homeground, Laugardalshöllin. A few of the songs in the setlist weren't released officially for many years, so this is a great one for the collection for that alone.
Keziah Jones, Festival Fnac Indétendances Paris, 16th August 2008
Keziah Jones came to Paris via a stint in London getting an education after leaving his homeland of Nigeria, where he got snapped up by his label after a support slot for Lenny Kravitz. Not bad for a guy who was playing the subway a year before!
01. Intro 02. Femiliarize 03. My Kinda Girl 04. The Invisible Ladder 05. Long Distance Love 06. Beautiful Emilie (part 1) 07. Beautiful Emilie (part 2) 08. Lagos vs New York 09. Kpafuca 10. When Somebody Loves You 11. Simply Beautiful (Al Green cover) 12. Rythm is Love 13. Autumn Moon 14. Orin O'lomi
The Clash, live at the Aragon Ballroom Chicago, 14th September 1979
A sweet set from the boys from London, though not sure how much Bo plays on this, if at all. Going by the poster for it it could be support or as a guest. Recorded as they were finishing recording London Calling, they include quite a few tracks from that album here, including one much covered song, named here Jimmy Jazz, called Stagger Lee, an old blues standard, my favourite version being by Nick and his Bad Seeds, though it's not for the faint hearted!
01. Jimmy Jazz 02. I'm So Bored With The U.S.A. 03. Complete Control 04. London Calling 05. Clampdown 06. (White Man) In Hammersmith Palais 07. Koka Kola 08. I Fought The Law 09. Jail Guitar Doors 10. Police & Thieves 11. Stay Free 12. Clash City Rockers 13. Safe European Home 14. Capital Radio One 15. Janie Jones 16. Garageland 17. Armagideon Time 18. Career Opportunities 19. White Riot
Explosions In The Sky. live at the Rescue Rooms, Nottingham England, 2nd September 2004
A sweet sounding bootleg from Explosions today, the Texas based instrumental post-rock band, though they themselves refer to is as just 'rock', and probably rightly so, this is all the same the category they are most affiliated with. They comprise a drummer and three guitarists, for rather a differnt mix to norm, although Michael James sometimes plays bass guitar.
Ramones, live in Athens Greece, "Blitzkreig In Athens" bootleg, 13th March 1989
I'm surprised I've never posted any Ramones shows as yet, I was <--> this close before but never did for some reason. This was recorded just after Dee Dee left the band to try his hand at rapping, and featured the line-up of C.J, Joey, Johnny and Marky.
Emiliana Torrini, live on FM France Inter, 13th November 2008
Icelandic half-Italian Emiliana has been around a while now, with most of her albums being released only in her homeland or in the case of Rarities, as a promo only. Sadly, she got fame from singing Gollums Song for LOTR II, rather than her own music, but on the upside it did bring her to the attention of the wider world.
01 Intro 02 Fireheads 03 Me and Armini 04 Jungle drum 05 Birds 06 Bleeder 07 Gun 08 Heard it all before 09 Life saver 10 Sunny Road 11 Big Jumps 12 Beggars Prayer (part 1) 13 Beggar's prayer (part 2)
Genesis, live at The Ambassador Theatre, St. Louis, 23rd April 1976
A quality audience recording for it's age, better than some I've heard of much less a vintage. Recorded just after the departure of Peter Gabriel, and featurinf two drummers to replace the excellence of Collins, sadly he doesn't match Gabe for songwriting in my book but then these are still the same songs!
1.1 Dance On A Volcano 07:20 1.2 Lamb Lies Down On Broadway 05:15 1.3 Fly On A Windshield 02:25 1.4 Carpet Crawlers 06:32 1.5 Cinema Show 11:18 1.6 Intro 01:07 1.7 Robbery, Assault And Battery 06:55 1.8 White Mountain 06:53 1.9 Intro(2) 01:05 1.10 Firth Of Fifth 09:06 1.11 Intro (3) 00:53 1.12 Entangled 06:54 1.13 Squonk 07:03 2.1 Intro (4) 01:38 2.2 Supper's Ready 25:07 2.3 I Know What I Like 06:27 2.4 Los Endos 06:58 2.5 It 03:27 2.6 Watcher Of The Skies 03:23
Joan As Police Woman, live at Lido, Berlin, 12th November 2008
Some Miss Wasser today, and a little lovely something from her current European tour. An excellent sound on this audience taped show, you can hear the crowd clearly in the quieter solo piano moments, but it's in no way intrusive, rather it gives you an illusion of being stood near the bar appreciating the show. A nice bit of continuation too, she's still playing with Parker Kindred, ex of Jeff Buckley, and the former Wasser/Kindred/Tighe group Black Beetle. Oh yes, and an unusual cover she's been playing for a while, around three minutes in length in its original incarnation, drawn out (not in an "Oh my god! Isn't this over yet?" way) to about seven by Joan and band.
01. Intro 02. Honor My Wishes 03. Band Introduction 04. To Be Loved 05. Flushed Chest 06. The Ride 07. To Be Lonely 08. Feed The Light 09. Hard White Wall 10. We Don't Own It 11. To Survive 12. Start Of My Heart 13. Anyone 14. I Defy 15. Fire 16. Christobal 17. Eternal Flame 18. To America (Fireworks) > Furious 19. Real Life 20. Keeper Of The Flame
Sigur Ros, live at the Carling Academy, Glasgow, 6th November 2008
The four piece line-up for this Scotland show, with Kjarten Holm of support band A Minor Reflection joining them on xylophone during Hafsól, before the rest of his band all came out to play drums on the main set closer.
01 Svefn-G-Englar 02 Ný Batterí 03 Fljótavik 04 Við Spilum Endalaust 05 Hoppípolla 06 Með Blóðnasir 07 Inní Mér syngur Vitleysingur 08 E-Bow 09 Sæglópur 10 Festival 11 Hafsól 12 Gobbledigook 13 All Alright 14 Popplagið
Johnny Cash, "Bring It Back Alive" bootleg, Rocky Gap Music Fest. Cumberland Maryland, 25th August 1990
A good Cash boot for you today, with added The Carter Family material track 24 onwards for filler...forgot to label them correctly come to think of it now, but be buggered if I'm going to reupload now, you'll have to tag them yourself!
The Smiths, live at Salford University, 20th July 1986
A great setlist from what was the The Smiths (sounds weird, but surely the correct way of saying it?) homecoming gig in Salford, home of the famous above location of course. Not the original line-up at this point, as Andy had been fired for his heroin use via post-it note, a classy touch from Morrissey...despite that, this is probably the most celebrated period of The Smiths career as they were touring what's generally considered their best album, certainly my favourite, The Queen Is Dead.
01 Panic 02 Shakespeare's Sister 03 Frankly, Mr. Shankly 04 Vicar In A Tutu 05 Ask 06 I Want The One I Can't Have 07 Cemetry Gates 08 Never Had No One Ever 09 Is It Really So Strange? 10 The Boy With The Thorn In His Side 11 There Is A Light That Never Goes Out 12 That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore 13 What She Said (with Rubber Ring intro and outro) 14 The Queen Is Dead 15 Money Changes Everything 16 I Know It's Over 17 Bigmouth Strikes Again 18 (Marie's The Name) His Latest Flame/Rusholme Ruffians 19 Hand In Glove
Jonathan Richman, live at Reed College, Portland Oregan, unknown date 1983
Some more of the wonderful Jonathan for you, just him, a saxophone, and Curly Keranen on upright bass, and a great performance it is too.
01 That Summer Feeling 02 Stop this Car 03 Here come the Martian Martians 04 Dodge Veg-o-matic 05 Rockin rockin' Leprechauns 06 Ice Cream man 07 Affection 08 Those Conga Drums 09 My runabout girl 10 The new teller 11 This kind of music 12 The Twist 13 Time for fooling around
Nouvelle Vague (feat Camille), La Route De Rock, 13th August 2004
Broadcast on Bernard Lenoirs show on FM France Inter, this is French pop act Nouvelle Vague playing on the beach (Camille runs into the sea mid-way through Too Drunk..!). Their name is worthy of an SFA frontman Gruff Rhys song title, as it's pun-tastic. Basically it means New Wave in French, but in Portuguese it means Bossa Nova. As they do (on occasion) play New Wave songs in the Bossa Nova style...
01. Making Plans For Nigel 02. Guns of Brixton 03. Too Drunk to Fuck (part 1) 04. Too Drunk to Fuck (part 2) 05. In A Manner of Speaking
Gods and Monsters, live at the Roulette Club NYC, 5th April 1992
Post the St. Anns Tim Buckley tribute show, Jeff hooked up with ex-Captain Beefheart guitarist Gary Lucas to sing for his band Gods and Monsters. It wasn't a long term affair, but was rather a productive period anyway. They recorded many tracks together at Lucas home studio and played several shows around New York. From these sessions along with Lucas originals, such as How Long Will It Take below, came fledgling versions of Grace and Mojo Pin, which Lucas played guitar for on the album Grace. Thankfully a much more subdued version than during the G&M period!
01. Dink's Song 02. Sweet Thing 03. How Long Will It Take 04. Mojo Pin 05. Hymn To Love 06. Grace 07. Farewell Angelina
Rufus Wainwright, live at the International Forum Hall, Tokyo, 23rd January 2008
Rathr a different set from the one I posted a few weeks ago today, probably due to the fact he'd not played Japan for 10 years as he only has a small following there, so sticking to known songs was the the way to go. This does have some Judy Garland thrown in for good measure though.
Disc 1 (66:02) 1. intro 2. Release the Stars 3. Going to a Town 4. chat #1 (spent $10,000) 5. Senssouci 6. chat #2 (gay saves the economy) 7. Rules and Regulations 8. chat #3 (kabuki) 9. Matinee Idol 10. The Art Teacher 11. Tiergarten 12. chat #4 (Japanese audience) 13. Leaving for Paris No.2 14. chat #5 (Kay, Nanami & Aya) 15. Between My Legs (with Japanese Fans) (intermission) 16. The Consort 17. Do I Disappoint You 18. chat #6 (Judy Garland explanation) 19. A Foggy Day (Judy Garland) 20. If Love Were All (Judy Garland)
Disc 2 (63:25) 1. chat #7 (Tokyo Suki Desu) 2. Beautiful Child 3. chat #8 (been speaking Japanese all night) 4. Not Ready to Love 5. Slideshow 6. chat #9 (oh! flower!?) 7. Macushlah (no microphone) 8. chat #10 (band intro) 9. 14th Street (encore) 10. I Don't Know What It Is 11. Poses 12. Get A Makeover 13. Get Happy 14. Gay Messiah
Poney Express, live at Le Zenith Amiens, 25th October 2008
Poney Express are a pop/folk, twee indie kinda band, the French equivilant to the fabulous Scots band Belle And Sebastian, who actually took their name from a French cartoon as it happens. Only on their first album they show great promise, and as they only released their debut in the spring of this year, it's good to see them playing new songs. Enjoy!
01. Intro 02. Les Femmes De Milwaukee 03. Le Bruit Du Dehors 04. Paris De Loin 05. Une actrice 06. Les Pourquoi 07. Poupée 08. Les Petits Matins 09. Le Courage Des Oiseaux 10. Les avalanches 11. instrumental (intro de Nobody) > 12. Nobody 13. Les nerfs à vif 14. Gone Daddy gone 15. ? (nouvelle chanson) 16. outro
Lou Reed, live at The Agora 'Coffee Break Concert', Cleveland, 3rd October 1984
Another awful piece of 'artwork' for you today, thankfully it hides a good Lou Reed solo performance beneath! A couple of classic VU tracks help mix-up the setlist, and help make this a good 'live best of...' for the time.

British Sea Power, live at ABC 1 Glasgow, 11th October 2008
Another great sounding bootleg from BSP for you today, and I'm busy so this is all I'll write. Although, I don't know many bands that have song titles that are bird names which aren't known to the average layman, ala Great Skua as opposed to Blackbird. Enjoy!

Jarvis Cocker, live at the Summercase Festival, Barcelona, 14th July 2007
Some solo Jarvis for you today, and a great sounding boot it is too. I've loved all his work, going back as far as 83-84 (I forget when the debut was exactly), and continue to do so. Excellent choice for cover version too!

Big Audio Dynamite, live at St. Georges Hall Bradford, unknown date 1988
BAD were formed in '84 by Mike Jones of The Clash and his director friend Don Letts, who had shot a few movies for The Clash. They mixed Jones punk and reggae styles with dance and hip-hop elements, and did a fantastic job in doing so.
These tracks are taken from a bootleg CD, they were added to a concert as filler but sadly no dating info was given apart from the year. It is known to be an FM source though.

Antony and the Johnsons, live at Rättvikk Dalhalla, 2nd June 2007
A great set from Antony & co. here, and from a great venue too, an old mine by all accounts. A Fantastic cover of Beyonce Knowles too :)

Colin Meloy, live at The Orange Peel, Ashville NC, 11th April 2008
Lead singer for The Decemberists, Colin often goes out on solo tours of small venues such as The Orange Peel, why? You'd have to ask him, I guess he just likes it. He does put out some nice and quirky EPs for his tours mind you.
The band are named after a revolt in Russia in December 1836 or there-a-bouts (I'm writing this from my admittedly bad memory), though I think that Russians actually call them Decembrists. Whether Colin and Co. spelt it incorrectly on purpose to make it more English-speaker-friendly, or didn't know it's spelt that way, or whatever, I don't know and frankly don't care too much, I just know it's wrong. Well 95% sure anyway...see bad memory remark. Tracks 11 & 15 are unreleased btw.

Jean-Louis Murat, live at Theatre 140, Brussels, 17th October 2008
Couldn't really get much info on Jean-Louis for your perusal, as most of it's only in French, and as I've not spoken it for...half of my life I guess, then I can't really do much with it. What I do know, is Murat is a very prolific songwriter in the rock genre, though his music does edge towards the more trad 'chantuese' style of French balladry rather than balls-out rock music. It's very much worth a listen.

Drive-By Truckers, live at The Belly Up Tavern, Solana Beach CA, 20th June 2008
DBT follow the southern rock tradition made famous by likes of The Eagles, Moby Grape, Lynyrd Skynyrd by having a three guitar line-up, not 100% LS had 3 actually but they have 'the' sound, thankfully they're a bit more alt/rock/country than MOR as The Eagles are seen by many. Hailing from Alabama/Georgia, they write alot about coming from small town southern U.S.A. with a great knack for story telling, as amply demonstrated in the sample song 18 Wheels Of Love. Enjoy the show!
Oh yes, as an aside, I have a stiff 12"! That's Lena Lovetichs Lucky Number Nine from the '80's indie label Stiff Records (as on the t-shirt above) of course :)

Jeff Buckley, live at Wulfrun Hall, Wolverhampton, 2nd March 1995
Not the greatest of shows, nor recordings, of Jeffs today, but it has it merits; Some good banter with the crowd, who are rather rowdy at times. It starts off a bit mediocre but does pick up a bit during What Will You Say, one of the highlights of the set.
Some fuckhead has been reporting my posts here, and some of my files to 4shared, and as such some have been forcably removed. Not very cool. Ryan Adams shares his recordings openly, and though I'm not sure about Richard Hawley his show was a soundboard sourced recording, with the taper given permission to record it. I fail to see how these two are pissing anybody off. Maybe it's just me then...
The Flaming Lips, live at the Summer Camp Festival, Chillicothe Il, 23rd May 2008
Mostly singles from their last few albums in this set, and as it's a festival then that's fair enough, but I do like to hear bands of this longevity mix it up a bit myself. That's just me being a picky so-and-so :)
Waynes amount of talking between songs reflects their years as a bar band who rarely knew what they were going to do one moment to the next I think too, as you'd never see a band, such as Muse or Radiohead for example, who were in a pro environment from the first album or so being quite so loose. Then again, maybe they're just boring swine with nothing to say anyway!

Bert Jansch, live at Moraga Hall, Santa Cruz LA, 8th July 1978
Some more from my favourite British folkie, this is the early show from the aforementioned venue and date, I may share the late show at a later date too.
Some trivia for you. Backwaterside was taken by Jimmy Page and reworked into Black Mountain Side for their third, imaginitively titled album, III.

Ryan Adams and the Cardinals, live at the Palace Theatre, 30th September 2008
The second night at the Palace Theatre (hence I named the show with an (again)) from Ryan and his cohorts, with another great setlist. A hard thing to do with such a back catalogue plus sprinklings of covers (the usual Oasis and Alice In Chains songs)I know...soundboard sourced, so a great sound too. Enjoy!

Rolling Stones, live in Brussels (aka Brussels Affair Definitive Edition), 17th October 1973
Been a while since I've posted some Stones, and this is a real gem! Recently remastered by Thir13en, after having gotten shot of the rubbishy sounding audience recorded tracks, this does really sound excellent.

Babyshambles, live at the Fete de l'huma, La Courneuve, 13th September 2008
Pete Doherty is given a hard time by the press, but they do love to rip into people, so I s'pose he's as good as any to do so with. Yes, he's got his problems and acts like a dick, but then he also does some really good work. Sadly, though the band sounds really good, Pete doesn't. I don't know if it's due to the mic, or just him being all muffly...good set though.

Jeff Buckley, live on WFMU, 'The Music Faucet', 11th October 1992
A wonderful set of covers for you today, including two peaches from Elton Johns Captain Fantastic... album, played incidently in the order they appear on that album, We All Fall In Love Sometimes and Curtains. Many of the songs featured were recorded during the Grace sessions, maybe I'll post those in the future, and notably this broadcast also features an early incarnation of Lover, You Should've Come Over (Edit: Last Goodbye, I'm a retard. Thanks J!), then entitled Unforgiven. You can 'view image' to see the early lyrics in Jeffs own hand clearly above :)
