Soundgarden, live at Kitsap County Fairgrounds, Lollapalooza Festival, 22nd July 1992

A quite commonly found Soungarden bootleg, but always posting I feel. Great sound as it's soundboard sourced, really good set, and the added bonus of Eddie Vedders backing vocals on Outshined. Enjoy!

Arab Strap - Paris 2006

arab strap, live, audience, paris, la Maroquinerie, 2006

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 - Holland 87-91

sonic youth, live, radio, fm, vpro, effenaar, paradisio, de doelen

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!

01. Hot Wire My Heart (Crime cover)
02. Tom Violence
03. Stereo Sanctity
04. White Kross
05. Beauty Lies In The Eye
06. Pacific Coast Highway

I posted the 1990 'Shindig' demos near the beginning of this blogs life, and the links have since expired.

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 - Zurich 1988

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!

02. Higher Ground
03. Superwoman
04. To Know You Is To Love You

Beck - Demo Tape 1992

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!
