Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

Feel free to give me a shout : waltjabsco@hotmail.com

The Smiths Live : Irvine California 1986

Here's The Smiths live in Irvine, California, USA, on the 26th August 1986. This is a decent sound quality (preseumably soundboard) recording) and essential for the fan / collector. http://rapidshare.com/files/357537169/Smiths_IrvineCA_26.8.86.rar Comments / feedback etc WANTED !!


  1. Thank you thank you thank you for posting!

    Check out my Moz/Smiths radio show blog.

  2. Hey!
    Thank you for uploading! I saw Morrissey live but he ain't as good as The Smiths live. They were more creative regarding live performances.

    Anyway, seems like How Soon Is Now is missing in the file. Maybe you can e-mail me if you find it.
