Extremely good quality rebroadcast from our friend John from Australia...

Future Things

I recently tried to share some live recordings by a band that I thought was a traditionally taper-friendly jam-band. Sadly, though, apparently someone out there doesn't like having those recordings shared. *sigh* Not one email was received. Not one comment was submitted. So, my guess is as good as yours.

I guess we won't try to revisit that particular band again.... The future holds LOTS more by Robyn Hitchcock & Gandalf Murphy. They both have signed off on sharing of their materials on That's about as liberal a taping policy as there is. More PF as things come in... More Australian TV from our friend John will arrive in the next few days.

RS is having technical problems right now... Uploading is not easy at the moment. I've been digging through the archives & have uncovered a pile of groovy new B-related materials that I'll probably share once RS gets their act together.

Should anyone have the desire to share information about ... that other band ... please leave a comment.

RW -1987-08-14- Exchanging of Views (KAOS WORLD PREMIERE)

stunning show!

PF -1978/1979- Wall In Progress

This is just like being in the studio with the Floyd!

This is the studio demo track they drawn on to record the final mix of their "Wall" album: every track IS a radically different unreleased version to the album's.

It includes loads of unedited mixes, never released tracks (merged into other songs), different lyrics, original sound collages etc ...

Without the full lush arrangements you get a good idea of what Roger Waters had in mind when he first conceived The Wall: a dry, alienating & beautiful descent into his tormented mind.

It is a real surprise is to hear the band as the original 4 piece experimenting like in "the good old days" with all sorts of different ideas that didn't make it onto the final mix for most: various synth lines, weird sounds, raw guitars, strange sound collages etc... One can appreciate the massive task of editing and changing most of these songs to fit on the double album we all know.

It is "The Wall" like you have never heard it before: just brilliant!!

Paul McCartney & David Gilmour - TV Appearances 1999

TV proshots from november and december 1999, see comment for details


Gandalf Murphy - 2009-08-27 - Hayward, WI

This is a complete concert shot from the second row at the Park Theater in Hayward, WI. (It's a converted movie theater.) The audience members were mostly "Baby Boomers". At the encore, I yelled out a request for Yellow Submarine - and they actually played it! It was a magic moment, as the whole audience started to sing along! You can see just that little clip here. Download the entire evening's entertainment (complete with Wizard of OZ medley!!!) here -

You may be aware that I have carefully avoided 99% of all re-upload requests. However, things have gotten rather slow as of late. Until things pick up a bit, I would like to entertain a few re-upload suggestions.

I have already done the Robyn Hitchcock '85 video here.

I went ahead and did this film as well.

If you have other specific requests, I would be happy to do a few. Choose wisely... I probably won't be doing this again for a long time....

Jason Crest - The Definition of Psychedelia

This band recorded an idyllic psychedelic song, Teagarden Lane, which reminds me of something that Syd Barrett might've written. It's a happy little number about being outside in the Spring. It's very much the same genre as Flaming or The Gnome, or See Emily Play.
But, Jason Crest also recorded a song called Black Mass which has really heavy keyboard passages, backwards guitar (very experimental & disturbing), and wild shrieking vocals. Very, very weird stuff!! If you like Heavy Psychedelia (like Iron Butterfly), this is the grandfather of all of those bands....
Jason Crest released several singles, but the big Jason Crest Album never happened. They had developed a bit of a cult audience. ... Naturally, some tapes got into the wrong hands and a bootleg album was created back in the very early 1970s.
A few years ago, an archivist dug out all of the old Jason Crest tapes and put the album together properly for the first time and put it out on an official CD. The problem is that the songs were not always mixed on the CD the same way that they were mixed on the bootleg LP. Some are identical, but others are quite different. So, the bootleg LP versions remain quite rare..
I hope that the Floyd fans out there will give Teagarden Lane a spin right away. But, don't put this one up in your archives before giving Black Mass a few minutes of your time. I think that it's really powerful stuff. What a shame that it had to wait for so many years before being rediscovered!!

Battersea Power Station

This one was my favorite, of course... It was *beautiful*!!!

A Visit To Britannia Row

This is the place featured in the promotional film for Another Brick In The Wall pt 2. It's called Strang House and it's right across the street from ....

Britannia Row - Once a famous recording studio... Now, pretty much just a warehouse.

IS #1 - cover art

A friend made some cover art for this release. It was years ago - and I honestly had misplaced the files. I've been hunting through the archives tonight, however, and the files turned up. Enjoy!
