Lords Of The New Church.

Kind of passed me by, back in the day, but some really good stuff.

The Members - The Virgin Years

IMHO, The Members were/are very underrated, despite some (limited) chart success. The Virgin Years is a box set of their first 2 albums, Peel sessions, a BBC In Concert and some demos. Nice collection.

I have always loved The Members.

JC Carroll is a friend of mine and I put on a few of his shows when he first started touring again (as 'JC & The Disciples) in 2009.
I was then lucky enough to become The Members tour driver when they reformed a year later
I did several tours of the UK and Europe including when they had Rat Scabies drumming. Great times visiting places I'd never have been able to afford to go to if my expenses hadn't been paid; Prague, Paris, Berlin, Zagreb, Rennes, Montpellier, Monte Carlo, Milan, Telemark, Vienna, Marseille, Kiev, Dublin, Amsterdam, The Hague, Eindhoven, ... and lots of places in the UK that I'd never visited before.

That compilation is very good but slightly incomplete in that it only includes 1 song from the Andy Peebles Radio Session but it was probably versions of songs already included as part of the John Peel Radio Sessions.
There's also a rather good bootleg of a 1979 show at the Old Waldorf in San Francisco which the original recorder made available on YouTube....

Pop will eat itself - anti nasty league. The poppies are also an incendiary live act.
I can't help getting old. I just refuse to grow up.

Killing Joke - Ha

Absolutely love this - brilliant live tracks from 1982, shame that there's only 6 of them. Do good quality versions exist of the full gig, or gigs as I believe that they did 2 consecutive nights. If anyone could enlighten me, I'd really appreciate it, thanks.
