Alternative performance *
Indebted to Martin Flux for the lend of this tape and for the photograph of the man himself pounding the skins (drums not skinheads) at the majestic Bowes Lyon House in Stevenage.
Great quality cassettes of this performance way up on top of the British Isles way back in 1983. The only thing I know of Aberdeen is that the football club up there is affiliated to Tottenham Hotspur football club down here in London. Affiliated with hooliganism, not official club business that is, sad but true.
I may well have dozed off a bit at the end of the Alternative and Flux sets so you may well find some ‘dead air’ at the end of these downloads…Still if you wanted professionalism you would have to pay me and the site the going rate for that professionalism! Fill your boots for free and get ‘dead air’. 🙂
Fanzine scan added, just because…
* Just tested the uploads and noticed that the Alternative side of this tape (labelled as the same gig as the rest of the above on the cassette inner sleeve) sounds much more like a studio demo tape than a live gig to my ears…I may be wrong but anyway it’s uploaded now so do not really want to move it off this post at the moment, maybe in the future if Martin can confirm they did not perform at this club in Aberdeen.
* I have now kindly been informed that The Alternative tracks are infact studio tracks by a band called The Dead.
I have now set up a seperate post for these tracks (right above this post) and deleted the link on this post.
