the jesus and mary chain live in 1987 as it was supplemented to an italian book of their lyrics etc in 1992

and yes and don't we all love the teenage jesus and his jerks and don't we all love the jesus and mary chain and don't we all listen to the full and overblown rereleases of their albums twice a day and yes i will yes i said yes we do - but still there are some of their sounds that are pretty hard to find.
in 1992 the italian label stampa alternativa edited a little book of JAMC-lyrics and miscellaneous information and included a 3"-cd with three live tracks, two of them recorded in umbertide on the 29th of august 1987 (the complete concert can be found on the bootleg rockin' umbria) and the third one was recorded in detroit on the 15th of november 1987 and may be found some where else or not i do not know...
and just in case you are going to burn these tracks on a 3"-cd as it was originally intended i added a ten-minute version of 'side walking' they executed live in new york on the 23rd of march 1992 to use the 20-minute-limitation of that wonderful medium to its full capacity.

action time vision lemon and sham / recognising and appreceating the mutual roots / alternative television and sham 69

and this one goes out to all you naughty little punk hearts out there: a chance meeting of ATV and sham 69 on my dissecting table: old punks will never die as long as they menace the status quo.
and of course i'm not bothering to bore you with any band biographies, discographies or any hystorical subsumption of the unmeasurable influence these two bands had gathered all throughout the years: in case you don't know you will at least know where to read all about it.
ATV with mark perry as their driving force of course is also known as alternative tv or alternative television or alternative t'television or alternative to television in chronologically descending order, and sham 69 are sham 69. 
sham 69 released their tribute to mark perry and ATV in 1993, a winking hard rock punk version of the ATV signature tune, while ATV recorded and released their tribute to the THE ramones song that gave its name to the eponymous fanzine mark perry edited and published since 1976 in 2004. the very limited vinyl edition of this song is still available in the shop on the official homepage of mark p. and ATV, so please buy this and any other sound storage medium of ATV and sham 69 that you may find.
and what you can find here of course are both the full extended play cds of both of the tributes to the elder gods, all tracks are converted to mp3 with 320 kbps, all scans are included and you can download all and everything directly. but if you are in a tearing hurry, just listen to ATV by sham 69 and/or now i wanna sniff some glue by ATV directly in your browser, just click on the tracks.


new grenada from detroit paying their tribute to the dead kennedys, the buzzcocks, the germs, the angry red planet, the bad brains, the minor threat and black flag with 16 minutes of mayhem punk noise in 2002

a cute nice funny little gem i found deep down in the black holes of my record collection: new grenada from detroit covering punk songs from the late seventies and early eighties that their motorcity madhouse parents had brought them up with. a 3"cd with seven tracks that shawn knight (one of their early members and the founder of the now defunct boy arm label where this record was released) sent to me when i contributed some of my own music to his 265 popes compilation.
when new grenada recorded iron triangle in 2002 they most probably were john nelson (vocals and guitars), dave melkonian (bass) and monday busque on drums, but it sounds as if a lot of their friends were present as well to help them in the free form parts of this record.

01 - hyperactive child (dead kennedys) (listen!)
02 - boredom (buzzcocks)
03 - lexicon devil (the germs)
04 - mediocrity (angry red planet)
05 - the regulator (bad brains)
06 - in my eyes (minor threat)
07 - damaged (black flag)

hugh hopper / 1984 miniplusluv / the expanded japanese version expanded / and don't the kids just hate it??!!

by the turn of the years 1972 and 1973 the last album hugh hopper recorded with soft machine was 'SIX'. of course. the only composition he adjoined the band with was '1983', a long loop improvisation that layered the basis for his humongous huge work '1984' that he recorded in 1972 with some of his friends and that was released in 1973 after all. in 2007 '1984' saw a rerelease in japan with some bonus tracks: alternative versions that were unheard before and nobody knows where they got them from. and for your listening pleasure i added an alternate alternate version of 'minipax I' and a version of '1983' that hugh hopper recorded with the 'new' soft machine in hamburg in 1973.
okay. some of these sound have been created by hugh hopper and his bass guitar and some looops he prepared and arranged, and some of these sounds have been created by a 'band' built up in various combinations and co-figuration: hugh hopper on bass played halfways spontaneaous instant compositions with john marshall (drums), lol coxhill (sopransax), pye hastings (guitar), gary windo (tenorsax), and malcolm griffiths and nick evans on trombones. (please note the oxford comma!)
the original album was released in 1973 with tracks 01 to 06. track 07 was a bonus track added to the first cd release of the album, tracks 08 to 13 came out with the japanese version of the cuneiform cd in 2007. track 14 is an alternate version of the alternate version of 'minipax I' that was released on the gary windo compilation 'his master's bones' in 1996 and track 15 was recorded live in hamburg in 1973 with hugh hopper on bass and prepared tape loops, john marshall on drums, karl jenkins on keyboards and woodwinds and mike ratledge on keyboards. 
most of you of course will know most or all of the tracks, but this is a compilation i tinkered for my own listening pleasure, it clocks in at 79 minutes and a half, and i thought it could be fun to share it with you.

jefferson airplane / the rehearsal disc / live at winterland 1967

this is funny: i always thought that everybody knows and owns this record, but today i found out it is rather rare. jefferson airplane live in a rehearsal jam at the winterland in 1967, one long seamless track capturing the band in exactly what the title says, a rehearsal situation, fragments and free flight.
in 1967 jefferson airplane of course were grace slick (vocals), marty balin (guitar and vocals), paul kantner (guitar and vocals), jorma kaukonen (guitar and vocals), jack casady on bass and spencer dryden on drums, though i can not tell if they were all present at these rehearsal jams.
this cd probably was released in 1988 on the luxembourg document label as DR 020 CD and is missing in their discography on discogs, fuck yeah! the recordings are mentioned on the jefferson airplane discussion board and at guitars101, but the cover can be found here for the first time ever; except for an obscure page on amazon, that is.

so this is what you get: a 45 minutes track including rehearsal versions of
  • it's allright
  • won't you try / saturday afternoon
  • jam
  • won't you try
  • jam
  • martha 
gopher it!

kraut angst yeti / amon düül II / angel dust / live in berlin 1972

there is a lot of amon düül II recordings gathering (dust) somewhere around the web and if you look close enough you will find these-here somewhere else as well; but this is my copy of that particular cd and i thought you might like to hear it: amon düül II live on whitsunday the 20th of may 1972 at the berlin sportpalast.
amon düül II in these times most probably were renate knaupp (henriette krötenschwanz) on vocals and percussion, chris karrer (guitars, violin, vocals), john weinzierl (guitars), lothar meid (bass and vocals), falk uwe rogner (synthesizer, mellowtrone and other keyboards) and peter leopold on drums; the organ, though, sometimes sounds as if karl-heinz hausmann was on stage, too.
it is a lot of fun (though the recording quality is rather lo-fi) to hear them stumble and fall through their regular setlist fighting with the stolen or lent public address system and to hear them succeed and overpower everything that had bean heard before. yeah. the editors of this-here cd muddled and messed up the tracks, but that doesn't mince or matter: what you get is something like this:

01 - archangels thunderbird
02 - soap shop rock
03 - improvisation
04 - syntelman's march of the roaring seventies
05 - zugabe

please enyoy and download:

hawkwind live in space 1990 / 30 minutes of sheer sonic attack / released on stampa alternativa in italy 1991

these recordings were released on a free cd accompanying the book "hawkwind - the never ending story of the psychedelic warlords" that came out in italy in 1991 and is now almost 25 years later rather hard to find. the book contained a short history of hawkwind, some of their lyrics transferlated to the italian language, an abbreviated version of their family tree, some photos and graphical reminders and a very short and not all too elaborated discography. i bought the book for the cd, of course.
the cd contains only one file, 30 minutes long, with six tracks played seamlessly. there is no hint where and when it was recorded (somewhere somehow in 1990, of course), but most likely discogs seems to be right: you will hear dave brock (aka dr. technical), alan davey, richard chadwick, harvey bainbridge and the wonderful bridget wishart on vocals, the bridgehead to the sound of amon düül 2 as far out as my ears can go. i really love this very special line-up of hawkwind and i especially love the song 'images', all five versions i own on repeat 24 hours a day.
so here we go:

jean-jacques burnel / euroman cometh / the experimental 1979 album / plus a 35 minutes live recording from 1979 / the eutopia that never happened / but should have for the sake of us all / deutschland nicht über alles!

in 1979 jean-jacques burnel realeased this wounderful gruntbreaking album: a cordialistick vision of an unbordered and friendly europe, surmounting and negotiating the concept of narrowminded nations, open for every body and still laughing about preponderancejackulation. the picayunish punks of course stood by to hail to an other stranglers album and all they got was a slow moving slow mourning slowowowly melting cup kap of punk (and punk the fuck is not not not punkrock!) in a nevermind.
"warum waren soviele deutsche frauen baader meinhof mitglieder?" fuckyeah exploiting the verying differentering aspects of the lyrics is coumpleteley asshole underless you lived and survived the europe/ean tseffenties and i did four fives sax. the textes are layers own layers own layers and always different and always the same semen.
moist of the amusick was built by jean-jacques burnel himself; on the live-tracks he was supperorted by john ellis on guitars, peter howells on drums and the wonderful penny tobin on keyboards. all this is the stranglers, but you were not.

yoko ono no chance operation on a john cage tribute and some more re: yoko ono

in 1993 yoko ono was invited to add some noise to a john cage tribute sampler and she did, of course. the john cage tribute 'a chance operation' included 20 exclusive minutes of sounds yoko ono had recorded and produced in 1986 and 1987.

these those sounds are included here in two very different versions: you will get to hear her contributions split into 29 very short tracks to fit into the randomrepeat-concept of the double cd released on schwann in 1993 and the complete version as one track for your listening pleasure. i recommand to set these files on random and repeat!
