FLLR 036 - All About Eve - 7 Apr 1988 - Vrendenburg, Utrecht

Image
  All About Eve 1988-04-07 Vrendenburg Utrecht The Netherlands Setlist 00 intro   [0:27] 01 What Kind Of Fool (instrumental)  [1:33] 02 Every Angel  [3:40] 03 Candy Tree  [2:51] 04 Never Promise  [4:01] 05 In The Clouds  [3:29] 06 Flowers In Our Hair  [3:51] 07 Shelter From The Rain  [5:29] 08 Wild Hearted Woman  [3:22] 09 In The Meadow  [5:56] Total  34:53   This was filler on another New Order tape in my collection.  It's the only thing I have by them, it seems. They were opening for the Mission (UK). The listing that came with my tape (Nth gen) didn't document "What Kind Of Fool" but setlist.fm had that covered .     Documented on the All About Eve gigography site ... mine runs a minute and a half shorter so either the one used for the site is slow or mine is fast, or maybe the truth is somewhere in between.

FLLR 034 - New Order Tapes (part 14)

Image
  Our next installment of Tape Filler includes three tranches of material, extracted from TDK and Maxell tapes.   - Pet Shop Boys remixes from 1984 (tracks 1-3) - An incendiary Hüsker Dü radio broadcast from 1987 (tracks 4-10) - Audio from New Order's 1986 "The Tube" broadcast (tracks 11-13) Here's a needledrop of the first PSB remix....a mashup of "West End Girls" with Corey Hart's "Sunglasses At Night"... Also found a 7" edit, I've made the link smaller to simulate the actual size of a seven inch platter compared to its 12" big brother. What's interesting is that "One More Chance" is a remix that I wasn't initially able to find on YT, it's actually about 4:38 in length (the remaining seven seconds is just silence).  This is definitely *not* the original Bobby Orlando mix, which can be heard below. Update:  It's been spotted.  Thanks Robert!  Discogs used to have a beta feature where you could easily com

FLLR 033 - Section 25 tapes (part 1)

Image
Firstly, the main course (the Section 25 gig) is on Youtube.  You can watch it below.  It got a thumbs up from none other than Fractured / Image who has been doing yeoman's work with his own sharing. The assemblage of "filler" is actually taken from multiple tapes as there are multiple recordings of this show. Remember the tagline:  "Between what you wanted and the end of the tape..."  this site is devoted (though may not be limited to) the effort to fill every inch of tape with whatever good bad ugly or downright bizarre sounds are out there. First up, the encore track of New Order's Reading Uni 8th May 1981 gig, which you can watch on YouTube.  The tracks there are split, whereas on the tape, they run together. Next up, two tracks from a 2000 Götterdämerung broadcast.  I'll link to the video, but I can't watch it in the USA since it's blocked by WMG due to copyright, at least without trying to defeat the geolocation YouTube uses to determine w

FLLR 031 - New Order Tapes (part 13)

Image
  FLLR031  New Order Tapes Part 13 In homage to this... FAC321, the numbering for New Order's "Perfect Kiss" video...   The first bit is some distorted classical music likely left as part of a type being recycled for live music capture. The next song is "In The First House", by Leeds UK outfit Circus Of Fools, whom journo / writer / NO tape trader Dave Simpson drummed for, not to be confused with the German death metal group founded in 2006.      These demos would be circulated at the ends of tapes he would copy out during the 80's, hopefully to be appreciated in the far distant future, which would be now in fact.  There's otherwise next to no information about them online, besides what Dave himself has told me directly, that they went through a couple of singers....with this track I think featuring their first... This is followed by a live track of Frankie Goes to Hollywood playing "Relax" , recorded at the Ritz in NYC by a taper known as DT

FLLR 032 - Hang On The Box

Image
  DVD sampler supplied by psycherelics.  This is not filler per se but in the context of what I was provided it seemed to be a fun extra item for me to digest.  This is why I do this. The contents have been transcoded in Handbrake and are available here to view (MP4s) A close friend of mine has provided the following opinion. Now, Hang On The Box ARE worth viewing a few times. I have a soft spot for Asian girl led bands but being from China is an entirely different kettle of sweet and sour octopussy.  Hope these gals are careful and their families don't find them "missing" under a repressive government. I hope so too but believe they are still alive and kicking!  My local newspaper wrote about them back in 2003. There's a 27 video playlist if you want more, most of these videos (except for "There Is A City")   were on there. All the rest of these are already online, and I suspect the DVD was compiled from the YouTube clips...a few of them have since shown

FLLR 030 - New Order Tapes (part 12)

Image
  FLLR030 New Order Tapes Part 12   More collected flotsam and jetsam from various New Order tapes collected by myself and others over the years.   The first three tracks comprise Section 25's first Peel Session from January 1981, featuring "Hit", "One True Path", and "Babies In The Bardo".  This can be viewed on Youtube, here, courtesy of Vibracobra23 ... The next two tracks are also fairly common, the first of which was their 1984 BBC "Top Of The Pops" Blue Monday performance, where they famously chose not to mime, only to find that their single sank afterwards, but other groups would then go up to them and apologize to them for faking it! Was recently spotted that New Order themselves (on the neworder Youtube account) are now sharing these in pristine broadcast quality.   Originally broadcast 31st March 1983: As a bonus, they also shared Thieves Like Us, on the 3rd May 1984   (note: this wasn't on any of the filler I'm presenting,

FLLR 029 - at SDC

Image
  FLLR 029 - At SDC ...At SDC (shopping.com), which was acquired by eBay about the time I got there. Field recordings at work, not really working....done with my Archos Jukebox AV320 which I've featured in one of my prior posts.  For completists only, as it was an early run-through before I'd attempt to take this on the road at live shows, with mostly disasterous results. First item is a recording from 17 March 2005, of myself and coworkers taking a break from the daily grind on the ping-pong table.   This is a fun listen, even if the quality isn't that great. Second item was a presentation during an engineering lunch, recorded on 18 March 2005, with an employee named Jordan Redner presenting a Java framework for web applications called Tapestry.  It's still around , and is hosted by the Apache Foundation.  Fairly sure that parts of the old shopping.com site were built with it.  I really haven't listened to it since 2005.
