Siouxsie + Banshees - Pandora's Music Box 1983 (UK, new wave/gothic) 
Tuesday, July 31, 2007, 06:30 PM - Music, - UK, English
Siouxsie with a Beatles cover, I wonder why, it's not good or special and the key doesn't fit her.
The band got their name from Edgar Allan Poe's Cry of the Banshee.
Anton Corbijn is mentioned in a announcement.

Another Absurd Record (1979, UK, new wave/weird) Re-upload 
Sunday, July 22, 2007, 12:27 PM - Music, - UK, English
A re-upload, but the original post was not mine. It was on Mein Walkman Ist Kaputt, but something happened there, not only his walkman, but all the older posts are kaputt. Zakey asked me if I could post those files. Of course, your demand is my service. And I included both sides of Gerry + the Holograms (an older post of mine) and 48 chairs (also a download from Mein Walkman Ist Kaputt, I think) in it.



Blah Blah Blah - In The Army
Eddie Fiction - UFO 2
48 Chairs - Snap It Around
48 Chairs - Psycle Sluts
Gerry + the Holograms - Gerry + the Holograms
Gerry + the Holograms - Increased Resistance
Mothmen - Does It Matter Irene?
Cairo - I Like Bluebeat (version)
Naafi Sandwich - Slice Two

On WFMU you can find both sides of the Blah Blah Blah single.

Kowalski is the second most common surname in Poland. It translates to blacksmith were it is the patronymic form of the name for Smith (wikipedia).

Armoury Show - Pandora's Music Box 1983 (UK, new wave) 
Friday, July 13, 2007, 06:03 PM - Music, - UK, English
The coming time I post some radio recordings from the Pandora's Music Box festival in Rotterdam 1983.
Often I don't know the names of the songs and I didn't split them, so in the post you'll find one big mp3 file. You can split it yourself without re-encoding with mp3DirectCut, you can get that program for free.

Armoury Show was:
Richard Jobson: vocals (Skids)
Russel Webb: bass (Skids)
John McGeoch: guitar (Magazine, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Visage)
John Doyle: drums (Magazine)
The band was named after the Armory Show, a famous 1913 modern art exhibition in New York.


3 songs 17'47"
