Big Audio Dynamite - Bradford 1988

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.

Colin Meloy - The Orange Peel 2008

colin meloy, solo, live, audience, orabge peel, 2008

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

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!

Jeff Buckley - Wulfrun Hall 1995

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...

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!

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.

Hamell On Trial - Sarah Street Grill 2005

ed hamell, hamell on trial, live, soundboard, sarah street grill, 2005

Hamell On Trial, live at the Sarah Street Grill, 22nd December 2005

Ed Hamell's a whirling dervish touting a battered and ancient acoustic, he is both deadly serious, and not serious at all. For instance, he writes songs about his distaste for the way politicians constantly bullshit, but then totally makes you laugh by calling them things like Coulters Snatch and saying how funny it would be to say that Ann Coulter has a smelly pussy, citing the "throw enough mud" argument. Not so funny when I write about it, but the track is immense!

He's currently signed to Righteous Babe, owned by Ani Defranco, who also plays and sings a little on his albums, and most of his income comes from a gruelling tour schedule across the States, though he has had slots in such places as the world famous Edinburgh Festival, primarily for comedians, yet his show won many an accolade. His recorded shows are made freely available for the world too, you can find them at the fabulous Internet Archive, where most are available in any format you could need, except this one, hence I'm posting it! It is a great show nonetheless. Enjoy!

I would write out the tracklist as per usual, but there's loads of them (29!) and I'm bored of being on the computer as it took til the third attempt to upload part 2!

Death Cab For Cutie - Brixton Academy 2008

Death Cab For Cutie, Brixton Academy London, 17th July 2008

I wrongly said that Death Cab took their name from Alex Chilton (very silly of me as I've known for years it's not), as Alex played this song on many an occasion. It is of course taken from the English band The Gonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, who played the song in the film Magical Mystery Tour, as well as Neil Innes being a smaller member of the Monty Python comedy group, contributing to musical numbers with Eric Idle, and appearing as one of the Mounties in the memorable Lumberjack sketch for instance.

Austin based four-piece Spoon are little known this side of the pond, hopefully this will change in the near future, but I'm unsure Merge have the funds to get them radio play in the UK. You all know that Radio 1 and its ilk only add stuff to its playlists when they get paid, right? Sucks I know.

They're six albums down, the last hitting 10th in the US charts on release, and will be recording another soon enough, if they're not already that is. The track "Writing To You In Reverse" was debuted in this performance, the closing set of the festival, so they can't be all bad surely? ;-)

Rufus Wainwright - Solo in Portugal 2008

rufus wainwright, live, vila nova de Famalicão, Casa das Artes de V.N. Famalicão, 2008, unreleased

Rufus Wainwright, live at Vila Nove De Famalicão, 28th June 2008

Some Rufus Wainwright for you, I'm surprised I've never posted any before actually, but this should make up for it a tad. Amongst many favourites performed on the night, Rufus plays two new songs. The first, A Womans Face..., is Shakespeares 20th sonnet set to music by Mr. W, and the previous song Who Are You New York?, is totally fresh. Zebulon is also unreleased, but has been played since 2007. The show was the first of a double header at the venue, and Rufus plays minus band. Enjoy!

Cocteau Twins - Glasgow 83 and Oslo 84

cocteau twins, live, fm, glasgow, 1983, soundboard

Cocteau Twins, live in Glasgow, 9th December 83, and Oslo, 30th October 1984

A couple of FM radio broadcasts from Guthrie, Frazer and Raymonde for you today. The first performed at Nightmoves in sunny Scotland, the second at the Rats Club in Norways capital.

My Buckleyite followers should know the connection, for those who don't, Liz Frazer was Jeffs lover for a short while, they dueted on All Flowers In Time, but never released it (though it is floating about, ask if you'd like it), and the Twins also covered Tim Buckleys Song To The Siren for the This Mortal Coil project, dreamed up by 4AD boss Ivo-Watts Russell, where bands on the label all contributed and collaborated on several albums, with Cocteau Twins as the axis.

Camille - Live on France Inter 2008

camille, live, soundboard, france inter, fm, studio 105, 2008

Camille, live on France Inter FM, broadcast 30th August 2008

This is a compilation broadcast from French songstress Camille (Dalmais), part-time member of 'cool' coverists Nouvelle Vague, mercifully only contributing to their first (good) album, and solo artiste.

The broadcast re-ran previous performances on France Inter (tracks 2+4 18th Dec 02, track 6 32rd Feb 05) with songs and interview recorded on 18th June 2008. Included in the broadcast is what's reported as the first song (that she wrote) that she ever performed live, Un Homme Déserté. Unfortunately, I don't understand very much French, it's been a while since I was in school, the only place I've ever spoken more than the odd phrase, so the interviews are lost on me, but I know some will want/enjoy/understand them better than I. A transcript would be nice...
