Tom Waits, live at the Rats Cellar, Dublin Ireland, 1st August 2008
A pretty large couple of files for you today, but then Tom Waits has got an extensive enough back catalogue to play a week at the same venue without repeating himself, probably. This particular show was the last show of the UK and Ireland summer 2008 tour, when he played his third night consequetively at the Rat Cellar, hence the title when you get the MP3s. Enjoy!

Arab Strap, Live à la Maroquinerie, Paris France, 26th February 2006
Arab Strap were (unsurprisingly) a Scots indie group, well duo really but by this time had a fuller sound due to finding a great touring band, comprising the musical talents of Malcolm Middleton and the vocal talents of Aiden Moffat. This was the final night of their European tour, and their final year as a band too. Arab Strap were the dirtier, more grown-up, less camp relatives of their countrymen Belle and Sebastian, who recorded a song entitled The Boy with an Arab Strap, something that caused a rift between the two.
Both guys have had some success as solo artists, most notably Malcolm but also Aiden under the moniker Lucky Pierre. Anyway, enjoy!

Sonic Youth, VPRO Radio broadcasts, Eindhoven 87, Amsterdam 89, Rotterdam 91
This is a collection of broadcasts from the Dutch VPRO station I've put together, all good quality (i.e. very little to no static), and with a great set of tracks. The recording dates and venues are as follows:
Tracks 01-06 Effenar Eindhoven 14th June 1987 Tracks 07-13 Paradisio Amsterdam 26th March 1989 Tracks 14-20 De Doelen Rotterdam 1st September 1991
It's very doubtful the first 6 songs are in the correct order as the Effenar show has two different sources; The first is FM (1-2), while the second is Pre-FM (the CD/Tape that a radio station plays). Enjoy!

Radiohead, On A Friday demos, Oxford, 1988 and 1990
I posted the 1990 'Shindig' demos near the beginning of this blogs life, and the links have since expired. So, rather than simply repost the links, I thought I'd combine those three sessions with another earlier recording, I think known as 'The Hedgehog Tape' or something, but don't quote me on that. Anyway, there's one sample from each of those sessions for you to try before downloading the whole thing, not that you won't anyway! Enjoy...

Red Hot Chili Peppers, live at Rote Fabrik, Zurich, 1st February 1988
Although Frusciante is one of my favourite guitarists, I've not been a huge fan of the Chili's recent output, I kind of left them behind after the huge Californication. That said, his predecesor and idol wasn't too shabby either, and the band were much rawer and exciting during Hillel's rein, and this is a fine example of just that. Enjoy!

Stevie Wonder, live at the Rainbow Rooms, NYC, 13th July 1973
A truly beautiful recording today, from the legendary, and equally beautiful (in the 79's at least!) Stevie Wonder. Classic songs, funk and soul, a great band, and some great extended jam versions of songs surely we all know and love? If you don't, then you really should. Enjoy!

Beck, Like The Beer, 4-track demo tape, circa 1992
Second post for the day then. The story goes that Beck passed a copy of this demo tape (that's it pictured above) to a friend in a record store in Silver Lake, wherever that is, and it later found it's way to the guy who copied it and shared online. That said, his copy never had the 7th track, so what the source for that is I don't know...anyway, enjoy!

Nine Black Alps, Lamacq Live, Maida Vale Studios London, 2nd August 2004
Two posts for today, both not easy to get hold of, and I'm guessing the next post will be more sought after, not that Nine Black Alps don't have their merits of course. A couple of tracks from the BBC Maida Vale studio accmopanied by interviews with the band on Steve Lamacqs show. Enjoy!
01. Interview 02. Shot Down 03. Lamacq Speaks 04. Interview 05. Not Everyone 06. Outro
Arcade Fire, live at Central Park, New York, 15th September 2005
Another of those bands I'm suprised I've never posted before, especially as I have lots of their bootlegs in my collection. This particular show features a guest spot on vocals from none other than David Bowie, on his own composition Queen Bitch. Arcade Fire also did this kinda thing with David Byrne on his classic, and their often played Naive Melody (This Must Be The Place), perhaps I'll share that in time. Anyway, enjoy!

Devendra Banhart, live on Morning Becomes Eclectic, KCRW Santa Monica, 5th May 2004
A little freak folk from the lovely Devendra Banhart for you today, I think accompanied by previous postee Vetiver on guitar, playing the famous Morning Becomes Eclectic session, sadly no longer hosted by Englishman Nic Harcourt. This performance was during the promotion of one of my favourite folk albums Niño Rojo, and 2004's other release Rejoicing In The Hands, something I really need to replace as I've worn the CD out. Enjoy!
01. Intro 02. This Is The Way 03. The Body Breaks 04. Todo Los Dolores 05. Autumn's Child 06. Interview 07. This Beard Is For Siobhan 08. A Sight To Behold 09. Will Is My Friend 10. Unknown Song (I Googled my ass off, but nothing...) 11. Michigan State 12. Outro
Surely I don't need to say much about this post? Talking Heads demos from prior to their recording their debut album. Right, I'm off to the local pub...Enjoy!

Xiu Xiu, live at K4 Zentral Cafe, Nuremburg, 13th May 2004
Formed in 2000, Xui Xui's (Jamie Stewart's baby, being the only constant member) experimental brand of Indie/Alternative music has given them a good following, and deservedly so. This soundboard tape showcases just why, with a 50/50 mix of tracks from their then just released 3rd album Fabulous Muscles, and tracks from earlier records, giving an excellent incite into what Xiu Xiu are all about. Enjoy!
01: Poe Poe 02: Fabulous Muscles 03: Crank Heart 04: Clowne Towne 05: I Broke Up 06: Rose of Sharon 07: Jennifer Lopez 08: Sad Pony Guerilla Girl 09: I Luv the Valley OH! 10: Nieces Pieces 11: (applause) 12: Suha
Mark Geary, live at Rittersaal, Hartberg Austria, 6th February 2009
A little St. Patricks Day treat for you today, Mark Geary, friend of The Frames and a regular at the now extinct Sin-E, owned and run by Irish folk, when he moved to NYC in the early '90's. This Austrian show features a few covers towards the end of a nice set, one obvious Bob Dylan song and two less obvious covers which I cannot find the source of, as the name supplied to me was of a physicist...Enjoy!
01 Always 02 Cold Little Fire 03 Ghosts 04 It Beats Me 05 Tuesday 06 Suzanne 07 Mid-Nite Sun 08 Gingerman 09 See-saw 10 Volunteer 11 Morphine 12 You´re The Only Girl 13 Blue Sky 14 Bleib 15 I´ve Been Away 16 Just Like Tom Thumb`s Blues
Richard Ashcroft, live at The Sage, Gateshead, 21st January 2006
It's a little surprising that I've not posted more Verve/Ashcroft shows really, as I've only posted the one at all, I'll see what I can do about that in the future.
This performance from Richard is very good, a great setlist comprising a few of the huge The Verve hits, with a smattering of his debut solo album to flesh out a good set of songs from the second solo effort. Enjoy!
01 Keys To The World 02 Music Is Power 03 Sonnet 04 Song For The Lovers 05 Science Of Silence 06 Sweet Brother Malcolm 07 Drugs Dont Work 08 Words Just Get In The Way 09 Why Not Nothing 10 Lucky Man 11 History 12 Check The Meaning 13 Lonely Soul 14 Break The Night With Colour 15 Bittersweet Symphony
The Raconteurs, British Radio Sessions, March 2006
Been a while since my last post, was away for a while and had no internet there...
This post is an amalgamation of three seperate sessions, all recorded in March of 2006. They are the Dermot O'Leary (1-5) and Zane Lowe (6-8) BBC shows, and an XFM session. Naturally a few of the songs are repeated, but this doesn't really detract from the whole. I'm sure y'all will enjoy anyway!
