TVPs 21/6/96

Postby Aidan » Sat Apr 01, 2006 10:42 pm

I've got the TVPs gig at the Dublin Castle, 21/6/96, as an MP3 if anyone wants it. Be aware that it's only really of interest as a historical document, as the last TVPs gig until the 2004 'reunion'; by this time Jowe had left, and Dan was really in no fit state (it was a contractual-obligation gig to promote I Was A Mod... , and had come to the venue direct from Matthew Fletcher's funeral — and hence it was probably the weakest TVPs gig I ever saw.

It was recorded from the monitors with Dan's consent, so sound-wise is a cut above most pre-digital bootlegs.

Full tracklisting:
Tune up and intro
Stop & Smell the Roses
Three Wishes
All My Dreams Are Dead
I Don't Think That I Will Ever...
Typical American
Silly Girl
I Know Where Syd Barrett Lives
Painter Man
I Hope You Have a Nice Day
bizarre mime to the Part Time Punks backing track
Rainy Day in Manchester (cut off very abruptly when security switched off the PA and escorted Dan from the stage)

Ta very much

Either PM me or post on here with your email and I'll email it to you. Warning even as a heavily compressed MP3 it comes to 120MB, so if you don't have a broadband line be prepared for a couple of hours downloading!

Due to the file size, it takes me a loooong time to email it, so will wait a week or so and then cc one email rather than do it repeatedly.

Hi,

I'd be very interested as well, but what I would suggest is that you upload it to www.yousendit.com , this way you only upload it ONCE.

Then you can either send the link you receive to the people who asked you, or post the link here so that anyone can download it, up to you.
Thanks, and let me know if you need any help for that.

That's a great idea Antoine. My e-mail inbox couldn't cope with an e-mail 120 mb in size!

Have done as you suggested and posted to yousendit - the link is here.

It will time out after seven days or 'a limited number' of downloads; if there are still a number of people waiting for it I'll resend it (unless Keg can pester whoever hosts the site to post it?)

Because I've pushed the MP3 compression up to maximum to stop it getting ludicrously large, there's a slight amount of clipping on high, low and loud notes - if anyone has a real problem with this let me know and I can burn a CD from the original DAT.


[Edited to add] Could someone let me know if this does/doesn't download OK? Thanks!

i was too at "the last tv personalities gig ever" in london. actually i taped it with a walkman, so i am wondering if this bootleg is the one i did. i copied it for other fans afterwards, so it might have gone around.
i agree it was not the gig one could wish for. but then i've seen worse that year. on their german tour which took place a couple of weeks earlier the first three gigs were rather rehearsals than anything else. no wonder, because the band had not rehearsed before and new bass player graeme had the hard task to learn all the songs by listening to the cd's.
but they got better with each show and by the end of the tour they were stunning. in munich dan played a very very long version of "stop and smell the roses" where he treated the guitar with a violin bow. he did the same on "none of this will matter when you're dead" which was breathtaking. unfortunately i don't have a bootleg of this gig. though i know it exists because a japanese guy filmed and recorded the show.

best

I wasn't at the German gigs - but this one was fairly dismal in comparison to the ones earlier at the Powerhaus and Bull & Gate. The tape I have isn't yours, I taped it direct from the monitors onto DAT (remember those? were going to replace CDs).

This is very interessing. I like to hear that!!! I was at the Detmold Gig in 1996 and taped it with a walkman. Please tell me what I have to do to get a copy of the DAT tape you're talking about.

Will repost it; was going to wait a while until there's a queue of waiters, as it takes about an hour to upload (even compressed till the pips squeak, it comes in at 112MB) and a yousendit upload only stays for a week

This was the gig when JimJones of Thee Hypnotics played drums,non?Dan spent a lot of time at his Peckham flat round then.They'd be a steady stream of visitors from the indie demi-monde.I think our favourites were 90 second wonders 'Fluffy',who were too scared to journey more than 6 steps from the safety of the front door.I'd read that their lead singer looked like Uma Thurman,and felt swizzed.
