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!
01. (intro) 02. Fat Children 03. Dont Let Him Waste Your Time 04. Stormy Weather 05. One Man Show 06. I Will Kill Again 07. Tonite 08. Big Julia 09. Disney Town 10. Big Stuff 11. Black Magic 12. Cunts Are Still Running The World 13. Eye Of The Tiger [Survivor]
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.
01. C'mon Every Beatbox 02. The Battle Of All Saints Road 03. V Thirteen 04. Other 99 05. E=MC2
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.
01. My Mother was a Chinese Trapeze Artist 02. The Perfect Crime #2 03. Dracula's Daughter > O Valencia! 04. Odalisque 05. The Engine Driver 06. banter: (Consuela & Cornwallis) 07. Eli, the Barrow Boy 08. Cupid (with Laura Gibson) 09. Grace Cathedral Hill 10. Apology Song 11. Hazards 12. A Cautionary Song 13. encore break 14. Every Day is Like Sunday 15. Raincoat
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.
01 Intro 02 Mousse Noire 03 Hermine 04 Amour En Fuite 05 Brule-Moi 06 Chante Bonheur 07 Taormina 08 Dame Souveraine 09 L'au-Dela 10 Tel Est Pris 11 Caillou 12 Royal Cadet 13 Encore Break 14 Legende Doree 15 Voyageur Perdus - Jaguar - Dieu Des Amours
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 :)
01. That Man I Shot 02. Self Destructive Zones 03. The Company I Keep 04. The Tough Sell 05. Where the Devil Don't Stay 06. Dead Drunk and Naked 07. Guitar Man Upstairs 08. Life in the Factory 09.

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!
01 Stravinsky 02 Ta Da! 03 Race for the Prize 04 Wayne Chat 1 05 Free Radicals 06 Wayne Chat 2 07 Song Remains the Same (Led Zeppelin) 08 Fight Test 09 Wane Chat 3 10 Mountainside 11 Wayne Chat 4 12 Vein of Stars 13 Wayne Chat 5 14 Yoshimi Part I 15 Pompeii (Dedicated to Pink Floyd) 16 Wayne Chat 6 17 The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song 18 Taps 19 The W.A.N.D. 20 Wayne Chat 7 21 She Don't Use Jelly 22 Encore Break 23 Do You Realize?
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!
01. Cobwebs 02. Everybody Knows 03. Love Is Hell 04. Two 05. Let It Ride 06. Desire 07. Fix It 08. Wonderwall 09. Wish You Were Here 10. Evergreen > 11. Bartering Lines > 12. Goodnight Rose 13.

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.
01 Brown Sugar 02 Gimme Shelter 03 Happy 04 Tumbling Dice 05 Dancing With Mr. D 06 Angie 07 You Can't Always Get What You Want 08 Midnight Rambler 09 Honky Tonk Women 10 All Down The Line 11 Rip This Joint 12 Jumping Jack Flash 13 Street Fighting Man
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 :)
01. Lost Highway 02. Eternal Life 03. Please Send Me Someone To Love 04. The Way Young Lovers Do 05. Satisfied Mind 06. Hallelujah 07. Mama You've Been On My Mind 08. Alligator Wine 09. Chat - Calling You (aborted) 10. Unforgiven 11. We All Fall In Love Sometimes 12. Curtains 13. Dinks Song 14. Corpus Christi Carol
Of Montreal, live at the Roseland Ballroom New York, 10th October 2008
Touring to promote the forthcoming album Skeletal Lamping, from which most of the set comes, of Montreal have had a previous eight albums in total. I came to them quite late, after having heard this really fat bassline a couple of years ago and lyrics I took to be "let's pretend we're in an autocar", it was actually Antarctica, but hey, we all mis-hear things from time to time. A great setlist from the Athens Georgia group, so do enjoy!

My Bloody Valentine, live at the Roundhouse, London 21st June 2008
Another MBV show from their reunion tour for you today. I'd comment further but I'm being neglectful enough as it is today!
01. Only Shallow 02. When You Sleep 03. You Never Should 04. (When You Wake) You're Still Dreaming 05. Lose My Breath 06. I Only Said 07. Come In Alone 08. Thorn 09. Nothing Much To Lose 10.

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!
The Black Keys, live at the 9:30 club, 12th May 2008
Had some issues with my computer the past couple of days, so I lack the patience for any kind of writeup, they are a great rock 2-piece though and it's soundboard sourced. You'll notice (if you've been before or perused the older posts) it's Zip filed now instead of Rared. If you can't open it, befriend Google!
01. Girl is on My Mind 02. Set You Free 03. Thickfreakness 04. 10 AM Automatic 05. Same Old Thing 06. Stack Shot Billy 07. Busted 08. You're the One 09. Strange Times 10. Oceans and Streams 11.

Jeff Buckley, live at the Palais Theatre Melbourne, 28th February 1996
Sadly this is only about half the set from the night, but on the upside it is soundboard sourced...so I'm guessing FM perhaps? It's common for radio broadcasts to not put out full concerts anyway. This bootleg has a full band Moodswing Whiskey, but sadly lacking the excellent Vancouver at the climax. Ah well...
01. Moodswing Whiskey 02. Mojo Pin 03. I Woke Up In A Strange Place 04. Lilac Wine 05. Eternal Life 06. Grace 07. Hallelujah 08. Last Month Of The Year
The Flaming Lips, live at the Theatre Gallery, Dallas Tx, 20th April 1984
This is reportedly the first recording of The Flaming Lips, I can't confirm or deny that. What I do know though, I love both Flaming Lips: the gonzo rock band, and the cosmic indie band, they both have many strenghts. Weaknesses too I guess.
01. Bag Full of Thoughts 02. Scratchin' The Door 03. Oklahoma City 04. Purple Haze > The Groover 05. In Memory of Elvis Presley 06. Out for a Walk > Oh Ohh Ohhhh 07. Oh Ohh Ohhhh (reprise) 08.

Out For A Walk - Oh Ohh Ohhhh 10. White Light\White Heat (with Gibby Haynes)
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.
I'll shut up about that now, it's nothing to do with the band Death Cab For Cutie! Enjoy the show :)

Juliana Hatfield, How To Walk Away demos, Stratosphere Sound Studio NYC 2008
These songs are the template for Julianas latest release, her tenth solo album at that, and album which features a fine array of guest/support musicians including Richard Butler (Psychedelic Furs), Matthew Caws (Nada Surf), Jody Porter (Fountains of Wayne) and Tracy Bonham among others. Enjoy!

The Clash, Montego Bay Jamaica, 27th November 1982
London Calling, if it's not in your top ten albums of the eighties, okay I'll give you twenty, then gtfo! I know my LP of this is pretty early, and good 'ole Wiki has just confirmed it for me, as it doesn't include Train In Vain on the cover. Do you think I can be arsed to see if it's a first run though? No, plus there's probably loads of them out there making it worth about £5.75 anyway.
An unrelated random bit of music trivia, kinda: Yesterday I shared a train carriage with Eggsy of Goldie Lookin' Chain. Aren't I special...Nope.
01. London Calling 02. Police On My Back 03. The Guns Of Brixton 04. The Magnificent Seven 05. Armagideon Time 06. The Magnificent Seven (reprise) 07. Junco Partner 08. Spanish Bombs 09.

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? ;-)

Leonard Cohen, live at Casino De Montreux, Montreux Switzerland, July 9th 1985
Now this is a proper bootleg! Laughing Lenny, soundboard sourced, and almost 3 hours long. What's not to like? Answers on a postcard to: I Care, 9 (think German) I Don't Give A Street, Shove It(aly).
Was that funny at all? Probably not but hey ho, enjoy the show!

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, 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 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...
