Barclay James Harvest - Live (1974, UK, symphonic rock) 
Saturday, September 15, 2007, 06:27 PM - Music, - UK, English
For the Mellotron fetishist.
I personally prefer these live versions. In the studio BJH could polish the sound and use symphony orchestras, which made the already mellow songs too sweet. Live they had to perform the music with keyboards (mellotron!), guitar, bass and drums. That made the sound rougher.

Durutti Column - Pandora's Music Box 1983 (UK, new wave) 
Tuesday, August 7, 2007, 06:08 PM - Music, - UK, English
Durutti Column was Vini Reilly on guitar and Bruce Mitchell on drums.
Vini was often asked by Martin Hannett as part of The Invisible Girls to assist on guitar, for instance on Pauline Murray and The Invissible Girls and on John Cooper Clarke's Snap, Crackle & Bop.

The band's name is derived from the most famous column of anarchist fighters during the Spanish Civil War. It was "led" by Buenaventura Durruti from mid-1936 until his death on November 20 of that year. The column was instrumental in holding Madrid for the Republic in the face of the falangist uprising. A 1967 Situationist International poster included the phrase "The Return of the Durutti Column", which eventually became the title of the group's first album.(wikipedia)


5 1/2 songs (ran out of tape again) 19'47"

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.
