HOW TO DOWNLOAD

First of all, check the labels at the bottom of each post to know what's the filehost. At the moment, it's either MEGA or DepositFiles (Gavitex). In the download link provided, simply replace **** by the name of the filehosting company, like this:

DepositFiles: http://****.com/... -> http://depositfiles.com/...
DFiles: http://****.eu/... -> http://dfiles.eu/...

MEGA: https://****.co.nz/... -> https://mega.co.nz/...

Solidfiles: http://www.****.com/... -> http://www.solidfiles.com/...

A handful of records were stored on Solidfiles and some links are still active. Be cautious when downloading from Solidfiles, do not download anything else than a .rar archive file bearing the name of the record. On the download page you need to click on something called "Direct download link", usually under a big green download button. This dirty trick is the reason why I discontinued using their service.

DepositFiles have renamed their DepositStorage service "Gavitex", so don't be surprised if after typing dfiles.eu or deposifiles.com you are presented with a gavitex.com download page.

Expired links are dead, possibly forever. On a whim I may decide to practice the uncertain and dangerous art of resuscitation and bring some of those links back to life. But frankly, I'm through drawing pentagrams and slaughtering black chickens ;-)

* Most uploads are password protected. Type pyrolysebred to unlock them.

* A note about downloading from MEGA: if you're having trouble downloading, try installing the MEGA app for your browser. Look for it in the apps section on MEGA's website.

Alternatively you can load the links directly in a free download manager like JDownloader. It works fine with most filehosts, including MEGA, and even with links hidden with lix.in. Actually this is my prefered option for direct downloads of large files. Should you lose the connection while downloading then the link is still saved in the download manager. Another benefit is that you don't have to put up with ads, pop-ups, etc. :)

JDownloader sometimes comes bundled with adwares (the link above should take you to an ad-free install though), so during the installation process be cautious and decline all offers to install external softwares (like toolbars etc.) In doubt use Malwarebytes to scan your system and get rid of malicious softwares.

    1. No need to give credit, I took some of that information from your blog anyway ;-) Copy it, improve it, share it :) I may re-write this post also, I'm not sure the part about getting the link from the page source code is easy to understand as it is now.

  2. Any way to re-up the The Daisy Hill Puppy Farm from '09? I have looking everywhere for that and no luck. You are the only one that has it and I would be forever grateful.

  3. Hi, as always the last posts had great music.
    But you could try to use more Deposit Files instead of Mega.

    Thanks

  8. Hey there

    Great site from the stuff you're putting up.

    Sorry to be a bit dim, but I still can't work out how to download.

    Whenever I click on the MP3 link, it just takes me to a blank AVG page, and I can never download anything!!

    I've also had a look at your wants list and am sorry that I'm unable to help with any of these, but is there anything else you can think of that you're desperate for?!

    I'd love the live one you have from The Sundays - I have a 1990 Dutch concert and the 1992 Black Sessions if that's any good for you?!?!

    1. Of course you get a blank page, there's no such host as ****! But if you replace the **** by the correct filehost, then you'll be magically taken to the download page. Honestly it couldn't be any more simple than that. The Sundays shows you mentionned have already been posted here in the past (the links have probably expired by now).
