IN THE SHADOWS: CABARET VOLTAIRE, LIVE AT THE HACIENDA, 1983

IN THE SHADOWS: CABARET VOLTAIRE, LIVE AT THE HACIENDA, 1983.

The Haçienda opened its doors on May 21, 1982, and the very next day Cabaret Voltaire played its first gig there.

A year later, in August 1983, Cabaret Voltaire released The Crackdown, which is arguably their strongest LP (either that or Red Mecca), and the band did a brief series of gigs in the U.K. to support the album.

The Haçienda show took place on August 11, 1983, and it was documented on video.

In 1982 Cabaret Voltaire had left Rough Trade, only to end up on Stevo Pearce’s industrial-friendly Some Bizzare Records label. That connection led Cabaret Voltaire to work with Mark Ellis, the prolific postpunk producer/engineer known as “Flood,” on The Crackdown. In the years to come, Flood would experience considerable successes with U2 and Nine Inch Nails, among many others.

I’ve seldom seen concert footage which is as bathed in darkness as this one, but the nearly hour of playing is no less mesmerizing for that.

Setlist:
24/24
In The Shadows
Gut Level (Version)

IN CONCERT: The Ramones US Festival, 1982

Video

IN CONCERT: The Ramones US Festival, 1982.

Steve Wozniak, creator of the Apple II, believed that the 1970s were the “Me” generation. He intended the Us Festivals, with Bill Graham’s participation, to encourage the 1980s to be more community-oriented and combine technology with rock music.
The first was held Labor Day weekend in September 1982 and the second was Memorial Day weekend in May 1983. Wozniak paid for the bulldozing and construction of a new open-air field venue as well as the construction of an enormous state-of-the-art temporary stage at Glen Helen Regional Park near Devore, San Bernardino, California.

Ramones, Friday, September 3, 1982.

BETWEEN JOY DIVISION AND ‘BLUE MONDAY’: NEW ORDER LIVE IN THE EAST VILLAGE, NYC, 1981

BETWEEN JOY DIVISION AND ‘BLUE MONDAY’: NEW ORDER LIVE IN THE EAST VILLAGE, NYC, 1981.

Before they recorded their classic 1983 album Power Corruption & Lies, New Order made an extended trip to New York and absorbed some of the city’s more upbeat sounds into their own morose and world-weary music. Latin salsa, 12” remix culture and the electronic beats they heard in nightclubs like Danceteria and the Roxy were obvious inspirations for the music they would soon come to make.

But at the time this was videotaped—live at the Ukrainian National Home in New York’s East Village on November 18, 1981—New Order were still largely Joy Division minus Ian Curtis, a post punk band, not the electronic dance quartet they would soon become. It’s a fascinating document of the group during what is perhaps the least documented era of their long career. As I would personally chose Movement over anything else in their catalog, this was a real treat to watch. 

Setlist:
01. 00:00 ICB
02. 04:05 Dreams never end
03. 07:20 Everything’s Gone Green
04. 12:35 Truth
05. 17:15 Senses
06. 21:50 Procession
07. 25:50 Ceremony
08. 30:35 Denial
09. 35:30 Temptation

New York 18 November,1981.

IN CONCERT: Young Marble Giants live at the Western Front, November 6, 1980

Video

IN CONCERT: Young Marble Giants live at the Western Front, November 6, 1980.

Vancouver-based project space Western Front has played host to countless stunning musical and visual artists over the last 42 years, and they’re reminding us of this by unearthing an awe-inspiring, ages-old performance from classic post-punk minimalists Young Marble Giants. A full-set video is now streaming online.

The concert took place November 6, 1980, and found the Welsh unit treating the crowd to many of their subdued but stunning pieces. Witness, if you will, the opening number “N.I.T.A.,” a mix of droning organs, bassist Philip Moxham’s signature pluck and thump, and Alison Statton’s lines of nostalgia-haunted heartbreak. Elsewhere, you’ll find performances of “Radio Silents,” “Ode to Booker T.” and more.

IN CONCERT: TEEN AGE RIOT: FEROCIOUS SONIC YOUTH CONCERT FROM GERMAN TV, 1996

Sonic Youth Live at Rockpalast – Dusseldorf, Germany (Apr-04-1996) (full show 1h15m)

On Easter Sunday in 1996 there was a big festival in Düsseldorf, Germany—the German TV show Rockpalast was there and captured some outstanding footage of Sonic Youth in its prime, supporting their ninth album Washing Machine, from which most of the material played in the show stems.

The first three songs amount to throat-clearing before the band starts really kicking ass on “Washing Machine.” The camerawork, audio, and editing are all excellent, and the 21-minute finale of “The Diamond Sea” has to be seen to be believed.
Setlist:
Teen Age Riot
Bull in the Heather
Starfield Road
Washing Machine
Junkie’s Promise
Saucer-Like
Becuz
Sugar Kane
Skip Tracer
Skink

LED ZEPPELIN PERFORM THEIR FIRST LIVE SET ON TV, 1969.

Led Zeppelin’s appearance on Danish television in 1969 is one of the classic moments of rock music history. It was Zeppelin’s second time on television but their very first playing a full live set of songs in front of a studio audience.

Recorded at the Danmarks Radio Studios, Denmark for TV Byen/Denmark Broadcasting Corporation on March 17, 1969, Led Zeppelin ripped through a stunning setlist of their early favorites: “Communication Breakdown,” “Dazed and Confused,” “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You,” and “How Many More Times.”

Impressive, powerful and tight—it is an early example of Led Zeppelin at their best.
