Between what you wanted and the end of the tape...
FLLR 027 - Misc Live 1992
Misc Live 1992

From a tape digitized back in 2000, which was just an audio capture of things I have on video, done before MP3 players existed and your K7 was the format to play music on the go. Have all the original videos of course, but most of these are online already. Link to download/stream all this at the bottom, so you'll have to make it through my writings, or you can just scroll down...
A rundown of what's on this...
01 - The Breeders - Divine Hammer (live CO'B) 02 - The Breeders - interview (CO'B)
One of his first musical guests, legendary for the hickeys! Probably the sloppiest guitar solo ever heard on television, bless Kelley Deal.
03 - PJ Harvey - Rid Of Me (live CO'B) 04 - PJ Harvey - interview (CO'B)
I had long misattributed these to also being from Conan, but it was actually from the more stodgy Jay Leno Tonight Show outfit, but credit Jay for having the "balls" to allow Polly Jean to describe her Dorset farm chores, one of which was to geld muttonlings...
05 - Generation X - My Generation (intro by Debbie Harry) 06 - Debbie Harry outtakes
This was Debbie Harry introducing the band filmed at the Astoria in London, "17 years later", which actually matches to 1993.... so not quite accurate on my part to lump this into a 1992 compilation. The sight of Billy Idol with dreads can never ever ever be unseen, I'm afraid. At least the footage is grainy enough to imagine that this was just sweaty locks rather than appropriation. The Debbie Harry outtakes are pretty bad too, whether accidental or what started to happen increasingly with folks faking outtakes just for the sake of having them.
07 - Nirvana - Heart-Shaped Box (live SNL - Charles Barkley intro) 08 - Nirvana - Rape Me (live SNL - Charles Barkley intro)
Nirvana once played SNL with Charles Barkley hosting. Not performing "Smells Like..." which the band were done with, but a song called "Rape Me". Oh boy, did they ever. And you thought 2020 was crazy.
There's actually quite a bit online about this quite surreal pairing.
Sbnation talks about this was after Michael Jordan spanked Barkley's Phoenix Suns.
And Charles himself has opined on it, you can search these out for yourself.
The copyright enforcers at whoever owns Nirvana's rights these days (UMG) got to the older versions put up, but there's this short clip.
These rehearsal versions are still online, though. I wonder if the "Soaked In Bleach" account was associated with the documentary by the same name. I don't have time here to get into all the controversy Cobain's end seems to have engendered. Knowing how this year has been I'm sure we'll be soon be given proof that both 9/11 was an inside job AND Kurt was killed by his ex-.
Next up...what I view as the centerpiece of what I'm offering here...
09 - Juliana Hatfield - Interview with Alex Bennett 105.3FM 1 10 - Juliana Hatfield - Supermodel (live acoustic Alex Bennett) 11 - Juliana Hatfield - My Sister (live acoustic Alex Bennett) 12 - Juliana Hatfield - Interview segment 2 13 - Juliana Hatfield - Spin The Bottle (live acoustic Alex Bennett)
I know that Alex Bennett (who's over 80 but still going strong) is not everybody's cup of tea, but he is 100% truthful when he claims that Howard Stern stole his schtick. Spent many a morning listening to him on Live 105. NYC has him now and still does his thing on gabnet.net.
The performances from Juliana and the exchanges with Alex and sidekick comedian (maybe Larry "Bubbles" Brown, going off of memory here) are wonderful...this version of Spin The Bottle is jaw-dropping good. All of this is a must-listen!
My god, 1992 was simply one hell of a year for music.... just imagine the absolute dross we get now when before late night would be graced with amazing artists like Nirvana / PJ Harvey / The Breeders / Belly...
"Live classics from the Cutting Edge" next up, these were audio-only, and pulled from PCM Hi-Fi VHS "masters", which is another long project that awaits me.... Gems from the following older generation of alternative musicians. The Elvis C. tracks are especially enjoyable...
16 - Iggy Pop - Lust For Life (live)
17 - Roxy Music - Both Ends Burning (live) 18 - Roxy Music - Love Is The Drug (live)
19 - Elvis Costello and the Attractions (intro Matthew Sweet) (live Philadelphia 1984) 20 - Elvis Costello and the Attractions - Watching The Detectives (live) 21 - Elvis Costello and the Attractions - Alison (My Aim Is True) (live) 22 - Elvis Costello and the Attractions - Pump It Up (live)
Think the full show is available here: https://www.mixcloud.com/sinlopez/elvis-costello-and-the-attractions-1984-08-11-philadelphia-pa/
23 - The Pretenders (intro Matthew Sweet) (live NYC 1983) 24 - The Pretenders - Precious (live) 25 - The Pretenders - Brass In Pocket (live) 26 - The Pretenders - Mystery Achievement (live)
Not sure if these were the US festival tracks...but considering they had undergone quite a bit of tumult with the loss of their original bassist and guitarist due to the effects of drug abuse, it most likely was.
Anyway, here's the full set on YT:
The following I don't 100% remember, but tape doesn't lie...
91 - ephemera 1 - grounding hum + brief hip-hop style linking piece [0:06] 92 - ephemera 2 - acoustic guitar dribblings from yours truly, which isn't bad for somebody who can't really play [2:23] 93 - ephemera 3 - Almond Joy ad fragment [0:10] 94 - ephemera 4 - "Yeah, Motor..." ....this is from a song intro which neither myself nor Shazam can place... [0:37]
And finally, these utterly ubiquitous filler tracks, which you all should be familiar with. Think these were the same digitizations used on FLLR 023, though I didn't trim off 10s of blank space following the conclusion of the Flesh D-Vice track.
98 - The Mark Of Cain - Can You See Now 99 - Flesh D-Vice - Transmission
New Order Tapes (part 11) Getting all the FLLR in Order (awful puns never cease)....we're now ready to post #023. This next set does not feature much in the way of actual New Order aural content, but a couple of other fellow traveler bands that often comprised filler slots on cassettes that traders would mail to one another. The first few tracks are taken from a New Order tape of their 26th February 1983 Kolingsborg Stockholm, Sweden performance. Prepended to the set are some oddities... 1) Lesson 27, part 4, dialogue ...history lesson. Pay attention, John. Yes, Professor Garcia. What did you read today? Latin American history. What do you remember? It was an exciting era. Name an important country? Mexico, for example. W hat did you learn about it? It is a beautiful land. Are its people successful? Yes, they work together. 2) Then there's a loop of a Bernard Sumner stating that he's just waiting for the sequencer to work, taken from that same Koling
Well, some of the filler isn't from New Order, per se , but since it's still New Order related I won't alter the numbering scheme. The first few tracks were from the heralded return of New Order, after a five year absence where all the members went onto their various side projects, with varying degrees of commercial and critical success. I figure most of the members by then were running on fumes so it was not a moment too soon when they all got back together again. Unfortunately, Gillian's newly born daughter had health issues so going into the 21st century, she ended up being having to suspend her participation, at least until Grace's condition improved and/or was managed (I don't know any intimate details) Regret 'TFI Friday' (27 Nov 1998) Temptation - Commonwealth Games, Albert Square 21 Sep 1998...with full intro, which I haven't seen before. This was taped live from Malaysian TV. New Order introduced...or at least prefaced...by royalty.
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
