Radiohead - On A Friday Demos

radiohead, on a friday, demo, bootleg

Radiohead, On A Friday demo tape, The Greatest Shindig, summer 1990

This tape is a collection of demos made over the summer of 1990. All the members were by this point at different Universities around the country, but reconvened over the summer, with the exception of Phil who was in Ireland. Although at this time the band did not have a settled name, having dropped On A Friday, but not come up with anything better. The band's working title was 'Shindig', which survived long enough for Thom to spray paint it on his acoustic guitar case, but by the time of their next 'proper' demo, they had reverted to On A Friday.

In order to keep recording and rehearsing a school friend who had recorded some previous demos for the band was drafted in to keep the drum stool warm. The Clifton Hampden tracks were recorded over a number of weeks with this line up, while Jonny took the four track home with him in between where him, Thom and Colin worked on tracks. When Phil returned the band recorded another demo track in rehearsal, 'What's That You See?', significant because it was the first time Jonny moved from keyboards to guitar. The song was the only one from this period that remained in the set up until just prior to the deal with Parlophone.

Talking Heads - Live at the Jabberwocky 1977

talking heads, jabberwocky, nyc, new york, 1977, live, bootleg

Talking Heads, live at the Jabberwocky Syracuse NY, 26th January 1977

One of the several highly Iconic bands from the mid-late '70's New York underground scene, Talking Heads are probably the most influential of the lot, and that's a big deal when you consider The Ramones, Patti Smith, Blondie and Television. Sure Blondie were probably the biggest with the girls, The Ramones with the alt crowd, but for allover appeal no-one beats Bryne, Frantz, Weymouth and Harrison.

Performed as a late show on the 26th of January, this bootleg was broadcast on FM radio, and going by the opening intro track this is taken from the pre-broadcast tapes. Anyway, it's a great set from such a rich period in their history, enjoy!...and yes, that is the Troggs track to close the set!

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Live at the Warfield 1998 *updated links*

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Warfield Theatre SA, 17th December 1998

This is a rather lovely bootleg from Nick and the band, with a good mix of songs from over their term as the Bad Seeds, many classics such as Stagger Lee, Mercy Seat, From Her To Eternity etc. etc. When playing the harder edged songs, such as the above mentioned Mercy Seat, the band and Nick himself deliver them with a passion belying a group of their age, it's good to hear a band who still love performing old songs they've played thousands of times before, and do so with such fire in their bellies.

Steve Malkmus and the Jicks, live at Sonic Boom Records Seattle, in-store free show, 24th May 2005

The image is actually from 2nd March, but the show's certainly from 24th May as it was direct from the taper alienbobz.

Stephen gained rightful acclaim fronting Pavement in the throughout the '90's, after which he started 'the Jicks', initially wanting to be called simply that, except his label had other thoughts on the matter, as they tend to do in such cases. So, Steve Malkmus released a Jicks album under his own name before officially using the moniker when he released (or should I say they?) Pig Lib in 2003.

Super Furry Animals, Dublin 2005

Super Furry Animals, live at the Olympia Theatre Dublin, September 27th 2005

This show was recorded (excellently by Johnky, his bootleg list is available here) during the Love Kraft tour, and features mainly tracks from the album as well as Phantom Power and Rings Around The World releases. It opens with a touch of Gruffs humour (and Bunfs I assume, being the DJ of the band), as the theme to the Rocky movies blasts out as they take the stage, then later shows a bit of the same, though with a touch of rebellion, as Bill Hicks calls out "All governments are liars and murderers", not sure which show that's from, but I'm pretty certain it was a reaction to the Koresh/Waco incident.

A couple of small points about SFA.
1) They should be bigger than they are.
2) Why do these new bands get so much love for using (nu)rave in their music? SFA have done it for years, and to a much higher standard too. Stupid fads!

Stone Roses - live at the Hacienda, Feb 1989

stone roses, hacienda, 1989, all the colours fade

Stone Roses, live at the Hacienda 27th February 1989, All The Colours Fade bootleg.

The first big hometown gig for the legendary Stone Roses, at the also legendary Hacienda Club in Manchester. The line-up, the songs, and the shit-hot band, they're all present and correct in this concert bootleg. Comprising mainly of tracks from their iconic debut album, the show fairly pings along as Reni, Mani, John and Ian are pretty much on the top of their game. Sally Cinnamon, later released by someone unscrupulous while court battles were raging between band and label, is a joy to hear, as are Here It Comes and Suger Spun Sister. I really can't 'big-up' this bootleg enough, just take it and see for yourself.

Finally here's the gig I promised when I uploaded the Modest Mouse support slot, I've been having a life for a change, I beg forgiveness. This is a pretty good audience recording (thanks Midy for this and the MM), and has a well rounded set, though I'm sure there's a few songs all of us wish they played, but that goes with being a band of such longevity.

Modest Mouse, Molson Amphitheatre Toronto, June 8th 2008

Here's the support set from the R.E.M gig (coming later) from the Issaquah WA band. I quite enjoyed their second album when I heard it, but in hindsight never really gave it enough of a whirl, not as much as it merits anyway. When I heard ex The Smiths guitarist, and one of my alltime guitar idols, Johnny Marr was playing with them a few years back my ears pricked up.

The story goes that Johnny was at a barbeque with a member of the band, they got chating and said they should work together sometime. A while later he gets the call, asking if he'd like to play a few shows with them. He run the idea past his son, a big Modest Mouse fan, who told him to do it, then promptly started to teach his dad the songs on guitar. I'm sure he plays them better than the little man now, but it must've been ace for him to be teaching Johnny how to play some stuff, and even better to see Modest Mouse from the side of the stage while his dad played.

Foo Fighters - Wembley June 2008 *updated links*

foo fighters, live, concert, bootleg, FM, bbc, soundboard, mp3, 2008

Foo Fighters, Wembley Stadium, June 6/7th 2008

These tracks are taken from a BBC radio broadcast on the 9th June, which mixed songs played on both nights of the Foo Fighters double-header at Wembley. The broadcast set contains songs from over their career, or should I say Daves as a Foo, due to the fact the 1st record was just him alone, before bringing in Nate to play with the live band, then later adding Hawkins then Shiflett to what is now a stable, and very damn tight, rock band.

When he first released an album under the Foo Fighters banner, he was naturally, and perhaps unfairly, compared to former Nirvana bandmate Kurt Cobain. While it's obvious enough that Kurt would've been an influence on Daves playing and writing styles, it was a bit tough for him to be immediately compared to such a seminal band.

For that first album, self titled, Daves writing couldn't hold a candle to that of his deceased friend, and overall the album was rather patchy, though it did contain some great songs, notably I'll Stick Around and Big Me. As the band has grown and released more and more albums, Daves writing, helped of course by the other members, has grown exponentially. So much so, that his brand of more positive sounding rock music I think would outsell (and probably does) that of Nirvana, due to it's accessability.

Anyway, I'm rambling...thanks to Miki for this, and sorry for ripping it to MP3!

Arcade Fire - BBC Radio 3, October 2004

arcade fire, live, bbc radio 3, session, performance, bootleg, mp3

Arcade Fire, BBC Radio 3 session, October 2nd 2004.

This session was broadcast six or seven weeks after the release of Arcade Fires outstanding debut album Funeral, which is generally regarded as the finest 'indie' album of that year. As well as tracks five, eight and ten from the album, the band played the as yet unreleased (though there were demos in circulation) No Cars Go, later to be recorded for the second long playing release Neon Bible, and their often played Talking Heads cover This Must Be The Place, a track which David Byrne joined them onstage for during a gig in NYC.

Despite the fact that Funeral was recorded while the many members were attending a few too many than's good for a chap (two grandparents and an aunt died), the feel of the album is generally uplifting, not that the album tracks here properly reflect this. That situation probably had alot to do with the amount of coverage they got initially, yes I am a cynic, but that only helped to bring a fantastic album, which would otherwise have gone relatively unnoticed to the average prole, into peoples conciousness. No bad thing at all.

Jeff Buckley live at the Pacific Club 1994 *updated links*

jeff buckley, led zeppelin, live, concert, bootleg, antwerp, 1994, mp3

Jeff Buckley, Pacific Club Antwerp, Sept 21st 1994.

This fine show is one of my favourite of Jeff Buckleys bootlegged concerts, due to the fact he really shows his goofy, fun-loving mentality to its full. There are other shows like this about, but none to my knowledge which he plays so many 'covers' as he does here.

It'll come as no suprise that this show has an alias, a nom de plume, or some other phrase taken from some ancient European language, namely "Whole Lotta Led". I'm a little uncertain as to why this may be, okay so I'm not...Jeff was a big Zeppelin fan, having learned to play Physical Graffiti as a young lad (he recorded Night Flight during both his Sin-E and Grace sessions), and no doubt his request for a Gibson Les Paul was directly inspired by Jimmy Page having several. I don't think he ever modified his 'Black Beauty' as Jimmy did, unlike his friends Telecaster, which eventually made it home after many a year on the road with him.

The covers here that didn't usually appear are in fact only little blasts, snippets of the songs, some of which I'd have loved to have heard performed in full by Jeff with or without band. These are cool anyway...enjoy!

Nine Black Alps live in the City, Manchester Academy, October 3rd 2005.

Headliners of this concert above the Arctic Monkeys, Nine Black Alps (the name taken from a poem by notorious optimist Sylvia Plath) were the only of the bands broadcast on BBC radio 1 that actually had an album released at the time of the concert, as they released debut Everything Is in the previous June.

My personal favourite of the three bands who performed at the show, they've since released second LP Love/Hate, and subsequently been dropped by their label Island Records. I'll have to quote myself from one of the earlier posts now I'm afraid "Life eh?"

At this point in Forward Russias career they had all of two releases to their names, the split 12" single, shared with This Et All, namely Nine, and the White Heat Records release Thirteen/Fourteen. As you may have already noticed, the more observant of you anyway, the track titles are names are numbers, in the early days together they simply named their songs in the order they were written.

They formed in Leeds 2004, The Black Helicopters Tom and Rob hooked up with brother and sister Katie and 'Whiskas' Nicholls. Unsurprisingly pimped by N.M.E early on, this alternative rock band have released two full length albums to some little success, much less than this fine band deserves, while the Monkeys/Doherty clones sell bucket loads.

Arctic Monkeys at Live in the City, Manchester Academy, October 3rd 2005

Before they hit the bigtime but definitely not before the fabled hype, the Arctic Monkeys got some good coverage, notably this live concert performance broadcast by the BBC.

At this point the Arctic Monkeys had only EP releases to their credit, self released at that for the first, yet this setlist shows they had the tunes that would later become their record breaking debut. The show was rather like the N.M.E. gigs, get a bunch of up-and-comers, put them on a stage together, make some money from the kids. This shows what a good record label media push, oh I mean 'internet word of mouth' *coughs*, can do for a band, as they were below the Nine Black Alps on the bill yet they've sold billions more albums, okay, maybe I exagerate a tad, but you know what I'm saying...

An excellent early set from the Athens band, but though this concert is soundboard sourced, it is sadly a tad out on the timing front, very noticably so at one point. Other than that this is a fine bootleg. As with the early albums Stipe's a little low in the mix on some tracks, but as it's the same on the releases it's no biggie.

Interpol - Live in Copenhagen 2004

interpol live concert bootleg copenhagen mp3s

Copenhagen Store Vega, Denmark
26. November 2004

Interpol are obviously a rather fine band, and although they're naturally compared to Joy Division, Paul Banks vocals are heavily reminiscent, and due to their dark imagery and rather bare instrumentalism, I do feel there's happy music just trying to step out of the gloom.

Say Hello To The Angels for starters, this tune has elements of traditional punk in it's simple driving rythmn, and of course echoes of The Clash. NARC and Obstacle 1, in fact many songs, have driving dance beats ala the Stone Roses and their peers, the later again has the offbeat rythmn guitar stabs of Reggae courtesy of The Clash, also echoed in the closed hi-hat hits on Length Of Love.

Essentially what I'm saying is this, despite the obvious love for the British music of the '70s and '80s, Interpol are really an upbeat '60s Garage band a couple of places removed. Just listen to those rythmns and try not to think of The Sonics, the Amboy Dukes, Bunker Hill, Count Five and a myriad of other primarily Chicago based bands you've probably never heard of, and tell me there's no root there. Of course we could take it further back, but why be quite so pedantic? I'm full of shit you say? Shut up and enjoy the gig fucko! ;-)

belle orchestra live concert bootleg boston mp3s

Belle Orchestra, Museum of Fine Arts, 4th November 2005.

Led by the Arcade Fires multi-instrumentalist Richard Reed-Parry, this disperate band of various members of other bands frequenting the Montreal scene, have found some success in playing their contemporary brand of orchestral/chamber/folk music, mostly from the championing by, and support slots with, aforementioned Montreal scene leaders, but certainly not without having a certain merit of their own.

You might be lead to think that from the genres they cover in their music that maybe the music is a bit on the dour side, but this is far from the fact. Tunes like Quintet have violin refrains which echo the most jiving Irish jig, and are driven at times by beats reminiscent of the kind of north African music championed by the likes of Plant and Albarn. Piazolla has the kind of jazzy upright basslines that may be found on the finest of Bristols Trip-Hop classics. All-in-all, a cracking little show this.

Ben Folds
1990 Demo Recordings
Greensboro, NC and Nashville, TN

Well, I think the title says it all really. Ben Folds pre-Five demo sessions, what totally fantastic songs they are too, I really cannot spout enough praise for their debut album. Uncle Walter, Jackson Cannery, Underground, simply fantastic writing and performance allround! From the non-album tracks Clueless is very much in his light hearted, taking a poke at someone manner, My Dog, co-written with Evan Olsen and not released until the Speed Graphic EP. Situation is a good example of his many songs that are based on anecdotes or actual events that have occured, in the vein of Stevens Last Night In Town, or at least that's how it seems. Burnings is very reminiscent of Zappas You Are What You Is material to me, Mudd Club, Charlies Enormous Mouth, and I'm not suprised it never made the final cut, it really doesn't fit amongst his other fine songs. All in all, a very cool and interesting demo recording indeed.

Everybody knows the story behind this album by miss Apple right? No? Ok, in a nutshell, she recorded these tracks, her label said they were shit and to go re-record them, she refused as she was very happy with them, and a stalemate ensued for a few years. Cue Apple fans sending all manner of apples and apple related products to aforementioned record company in a "Free Apple" campaign. She eventually capitulated and re-recorded.

Jonathan Richman live in his livingroom


After the Lovers broke up Jonathan resumed playing solo. This recording brings us probably as close as we'll get to hearing what those shows sounded like. Don't be misled by the long list of song titles; while there are a number of great fully-formed songs, many of these are loose song sketches and snippets. The music helps fill in the gaps between 1973 Jonathan and post-1976 Jonathan; there are a number of songs (I'm Young in particular) that would've sounded great with the original Lovers, but the vintage cover selections and the more ambitious melodies of some of the originals help point the way to new musical adventures.

On the advice of the better-informed, I've given up trying to guess why this recording was made. It surfaced as an acetate, which is a kind of LP produced in very small quantities. The looseness of the performances and the production lend this a wonderfully intimate atmosphere (hence the "Living Room Demos" nickname).

There's an audience of two or three friends tops, Jonathan wanders from guitar to tambourine to acapella, repeating songs, extolling the virtues of playing solo and, at one point, asking someone take a telephone message for him.
