Pale Saints - Live 16th June 1988



Here's more rare stuff by Ian Masters, Chris Cooper and Graeme Naysmith. I have no idea where this was recorded, all I know is that it was recorded live on June 16th, 1988.

Unfortunately the last song is cut, but that's how I received this tape more than 10 years ago. Still, the sound quality is rather good and there are a few rare tracks. So although incomplete, this short live set should be in everyone's record collection I think.

Tracklist:

01: Hate Your Friends
02: High As Kite
03: Colours And Shapes
04: I Feel Fine
05: Sight Of You (cut)

Lush - Lit Up 7'' Flexi Disc (1993)



A while ago, someone left a comment under the Aspidistra 7" post saying that the cover was actually a picture of Miki Berenyi of Lush. So I "promptly" digitized this flexi disc and I can now offer you the real Miki, well ... her voice at least.

This flexi was released by 4AD in 1993 and offered free by the Lush fanclub. It came with a 6-page fanzine containing the band's history and lyrics to all their songs at that time. A full scan is included in the zip file.

U2 - J. Adams Where Are You Now? 7''



I know that some people will cringe at seeing U2 stuff posted on this blog but the thing is I was really into U2 when I was a teenager. It started with Pride (I was around 13 years old then) and I pretty much followed the band until Achtung Baby. Then I lost interest.

In nearly two decades I acquired quite a few live bootlegs by the band, including some 7" singles such as this one. These records are musical milestones in my life and some of them are rare. So expect them to appear here, even though they seem out of place between Warser Gate and Strawberry Story.

Artist: U2
Title: J. Adams. Where Are You Now?
Format: 7" single (bootleg)
Label: PR
Cat. Num.: KROL 3211

East River Pipe - Kill The Action (1996)



"What sets East River Pipe apart from the millions of bedroom recording artists now enabled by the advent of simple technology is the poise, elegance and simplicity of his work. Cornog’s lo-fi recording techniques reflect his lowlife subject matter, allowing a vulnerability and realism to shine through. The frugal nature of his recording is reflected in his writing style, with every song stripped to its essence." - from the band's bio on Merge Records

Format: CD single
Label: Merge
Cat. Num.: MRG 110 CD
Year: 1996

"13 track tape of angular, noisy music, a kind of warped psychedelic rock/noise-pop thing." So says the label.
