A HECKLER STIRS UP R.E.M. DURING FABLED 1985 GIG (AND THE BAND NEARLY FIGHTS THE HECKLER!).

Earlier this year, we told you about legendary R.E.M. performances captured before they were famous. Those shows, now considered amongst the best the band ever played, took place in 1981, just as they were getting started (their first single had just come out). We’ve got another fabled R.E.M. concert to share with you, one that took place when they were considerably more well known, but had yet to break into the mainstream. This show is perhaps the most unique concert they ever played. It occurred when the group was still in its formative stage, but change was coming.

A very listenable audience recording of the Barrymore’s gig was just upped to YouTube, and it’s embedded below. The whole show is worth your time.

THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS -LIVE 1981.

Here is an absolutely stellar live set from the Psychedelic Furs taped for Germany’s Rockpalast show in 1981.

At points during this show, the band achieves the power of a Mack truck barreling through a brick wall at a high speed. They were at this point still a sextet with the classic line-up of Richard Butler (vocals), Tim Butler (bass guitar), Duncan Kilburn (saxophone), Vince Ely (drums) Roger Morris (guitars) and the amazing John Ashton (guitars).

There’s a killer “India” at about the 45-minute mark. Great versions of “Fall” and “We Love You” come right after that.

The Cure’s Show | Watch the Wish era concert that was filmed in July of 1992

Video

The Cure’s Show | Watch the Wish era concert that was filmed in July of 1992.

On September 13th, 1993, The Cure released the live album Show whose songs were originally recorded over the evenings of July 18th and 19th, 1992, at The Palace of Auburn Hills in Michigan (right outside of Detroit).

The album was the poppier companion to the live album Paris which naturally was filmed in French capital. Unlike Paris however, this concert was shot with 16 cameras, and it has been said that frontman Robert Smith was dissatisfied with the original edit, and spent 3 months re-cutting all the footage to fit The Cure’s aesthetic.

The film was released on VHS, CDI and Laserdisc, but is now one of the many Cure live concert films to be out of print.

BLISTERING NICK CAVE & THE BIRTHDAY PARTY SETS IN ‘PLEASURE HEADS MUST BURN’ 1982/1983

Video

BLISTERING NICK CAVE & THE BIRTHDAY PARTY SETS IN ‘PLEASURE HEADS MUST BURN’ 1982/1983.

The Birthday Party played the legendary Haçienda Club in Manchester once in 1982 and once in 1983, and, per Haçienda policy, both shows were videotaped for posterity. The Birthday Party’s two most recent releases at that point were also their two best albums, Prayers on Fire and Junkyard, and based on this footage there’s a strong argument that they were as good as any band in the world at that moment.

The shows were released under the title Pleasure Heads Must Burn on VHS by Ikon in 1983 and then again on DVD by Cherry Red in 2003.

Every inch of this release is abrasive, vital, essential.
