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.

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.

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.

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!).

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.

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.

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...
