'Never Land' loud, at night, once the sun ha gone down, for me is tremendous. The long version mind, not the wee short one.

Indeed Ozpat...I wasn't best pleased when I found out...there were a few other things that were dumped as well (shop displays for the Damned and the M*ss**n too along with some huge 60" x 12" posters for Julian Cope / the Cult / the Stranglers).

Box

I had 4 of these along with a bundle of sleeves from a mate in a record shop when Floodland came out. My Parents chucked them out (along with a massive bundle of other posters and such like) when I left home. They thought I had outgrown it all!!!

Sounds too straightforward.

Must have?

Good shout there by Victim...the Unmarked Door is a personal favourite of mine because the sound quality is excellent...turn up the volume and you get a really good vibe...you can get it in the weeding section....

Live at Newcastle also has great sound quality and worth getting a copy too.

Copy

...if it was real would it really have "Sisters Demo Tape" written on the label on the cassette? (seems a bit bleedin' obvious no?)

If I spotted it for £3 at a record fair circa 1985 I would have snapped it up...being well aware that it was one of hundreds doing the rounds....

Any tips on ripping audio/video from the web....

Muse have a cracking session on the XFM site:

http://www.xfm.co.uk/Article.asp?id=14832&spid=14832

Is there any way I can grab this into my own files so that I can burn it onto DVD?

I wonder if any of you intrepid music lovers out there are into Thee Hypnotics at all?

Whistle Test

Fair point eastmidswhizzkid, FALAA on Whistle Test is superb but my copy of the 7" has 2 jumps in it which totally ruin it....I guess I should try and get a decent copy! As for Wake - as great as I think it is given that it was an official release. - I picked up a copy of Trojan Horse many moons ago...

In that case Dark, you win £5(#). Bootlegs are a pain in the a**e, especially when the quality is sh*t. ...but if someone is keen to get their hands on one I have them I'd like to help them out....but I would feel a bit crappy knowing I'm passing them on a dud I suppose. (#) metaphorically speaking
