The Crazy world of Arthur Brown - Live at Le Guess Who festival in Utrecht, 2015-11-20 
Friday, November 27, 2015, 11:05 PM - Music, - UK, English
I have to admit: I wasn't expecting too much when I went to the concert of this 73 year old veteran. But I wanted to see this legend one more time.
The last time was in 1972 at the Hammerveld Jazz Festival in Roermond. No special good memories of that performance.

What a relief: the man was in very good shape and so was his voice and band. 'Godverdommer' he shouted at the delirious audience. A smile appeared on my face on the first notes and didn't went away.
I completely forgot to turn on the recorder on my phone, so this recording fades in at the fifth song of the set.

A Certain Ratio - Live Paradiso, Amsterdam, 1980-11-02 
Monday, March 12, 2012, 09:22 PM - Music, - UK, English
From the Valeri vaults.



From the notes:
A fairly rare & classic ACR soundboard from their late 1980 Benelux tour digitised from an unknown gen tape. I've cleaned this up a bit as there was a lot of noise (tape deterioration) over the first three tracks and am quite pleased with the results. The last two (encore) tracks are from an audience recording, and although of pretty messy quality are included for completeness.

unknown gen tape > CDR > EAC > WAV > Cool Edit (norms & splits etc) > FLAC > MP3 (lame hq VBR)

Setlist:
1 Felch
2 Oceans
3 And Then Again
4 Loss
5 Forced Laugh
6 My Spirit
7 Winter Hill
// from audience recording
8 Unknown (encore)
9 Shack Up (encore)

23 Skidoo - Live Aorta Amsterdam 1984 
Thursday, March 8, 2012, 11:43 PM - Music, - UK, English
In 2007, Valeri from Bulgaria sent me a dvd-rom with various live recordings of post-punk bands. Surprisingly enough mostly from Dutch venues. A gift from a Dutch friend he explained later. A lot were Dutch radio broadcasts.
I totally forgot about this present until I saw it passing by while making a backup of my harddisk.



From the notes:
In 1984, the dutch radiostaion VPRO recorded a concert by 23 Skidoo in Aorta,
Amsterdam, a squat run by an artists collective.
There were always memorable performances and concerts there.
This is one of them !
Tracks (alas) unknown.

1. ?
2. ?
3. The Gospel Comes To New Guinea (version)
4. ?
5. ?
6. ?
7. ?
8. Assassins of Soul (Assassin)
9. Assassins of Soul (Shugyosha Step) (incomplete)

I found this between my old video tapes.
'The sun does rise' and 'Amor' at 'Later with Jools Holland'.
I don't now which year, but probably 1994.

In an old post I gave up hope to ever get the first fashion lp on cd. To my surprise Luke James, the singer of the band, mailed me a couple of weeks ago that he was releasing this cd.



There are different (single?) versions of Fashion and Bike Boys on the cd.
You can buy it from his MySpace page http://www.myspace.com/fashionlukesky for only $10 + $2,50 p&p.
He lives in California now, the lucky bastard.

1 Product Perfect [3:51]
2 Die in the West [4:13]
3 Red, Green & Gold [4:49]
4 Burning Down [3:33]
5 Big John [2:01]
6 Hanoi Annoys Me [2:56]
7 The Innocent [2:30]
8 Citinite [5:22]
9 Fashion [2:53]
10 Don't Touch Me [2:59]
11 Bike Boys [5:27]
12 Technofascist [3:39]

A rare tracks cd has soon to be followed, as a cd with brand new songs will.
