Re: What?

Coincidentally, I'd noticed that a bunch of Front 242 shows from 1987 to 1991 just recently appeared on the various streaming services as well - and now I'm wondering if the same explanation is behind those.

Re: Sisters spotting

Yeah, I have to say that whichever side you take post-split, Wayne is a very engaging raconteur, and probably a very good guy to go for a few pints with, at least so long as you get out before things get messy.

If you speed it up to 2x it's a far more pleasant experience. Mostly due to it being over sooner.

Re: Best band(s) you have seen live and why?

Peter Hook and the Light doing Movement and Power, Corruption & Lies in Dublin. This was the show he subsequently released, so if you buy it or stream it, this was the one. What's obviously missing from the professional recording is me shouting "HOOOOKKKYYYYY!!!!!!" constantly throughout it, of cour...

Re: Proof, Morrisey's a Wank of the Highest Order

Morrissey is one of the most self-obsessed, narcissistic "pop stars" we have. It's all "me me me me me" with him, he loves putting himself forward, he preens himself on the attention he gets, and for all his pretences at being a sensitive artist for studenty bedsit types to relate to, at heart he's ...

Re: RSD BBC Sessions release

I'd sooner have the tracks out there, even if mislabelled, to be honest. It's true that the neglectful mismanagement of the Sisters back catalog has been shocking, but the other side of the coin is that if one gets Von involved to do it properly, it will likely never happen. Obvious best case is qua...

Tickets bought, all 3.

Likewise I highly doubt these are going to go ahead, and if they do it'll be very touch and go for me, but I know I'd have regretted not buying.

Yup, Misplaced Childhood was the one for me, i've yet to explore the rest of their back catalog but Misplaced Childhood can bring me right back to the mid-80s any time.

I noticed that, looks like Von got a bit bored by it and stomped off too. Cheeky remark to open Train too. Aye, that was the bit I wanted to see, as from his comments it was clear that he was getting fed up with Wayne hogging the limelight. I wrote about it a few years back on my blog piece on this...

Re: Gothenburg, Mudd Club 15.05.85 Video snippet

Just finished watching this. Hat guy aside, this is probably better than Wake for me. Wake is too pretty, too polished, has too much flash and gizmos, and I'm not a fan of that big boomy sound others seem to love so much. This one does it better.

Re: 1984 Peel Session on Spotify

Is it just my copy or is there little to no top end on the 84 session? The 82 & 83 are lovely and crisp, but the 84 one seems to be quite dull in comparison It's not just you, and I've noticed this on '84 from other sources too. The top end is actually there, it's just seriously muted by comparison...
