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 !

THE B52s : Heatwave Festival, Canada, 23/8/80

Phil makes another contribution to the ongoing Heatwave posts : here's The B52's set from the 1980 Canadian festival. The usual big "thanks" to him for this & all his other recent help.

17/2/11 : New sharecode pasted in (also available in comments) upon request.


  1. Thanx mate for posting this,and also to Phil for supplying all these Heatwave links it sounded like a brilliant festival

  2. Yeah thanks to Phil. I was dead chuffed to receive this last night.

  3. thanx - spec. to phil, really a great festival
    yours Pauli

  4. The Clash set will deffo be out there. The Kings ? Never heard of 'em. I'd like the Rockpile set also - Nick Lowe was / is a phenomenal writer & bassist. Also produced the early Damned stuff...

  5. The Clash never played they pulled out last minute, Google says they either cancelled or were held up at customs!

  6. I saw that earlier while I was looking for the Nick Lowe stuff. (Didn't find it...)

    Finally about to post the 1976 Screen on the Green gig : Pistols, Clash & Buzzcocks

  7. the file is gone :-(
    is it possible to re-up it?
    thanks in advance

  8. Just reuploading it now via Rapidshite. Will "comment" again with the new code & I'll also paste it straight into the HTML...

  9. Here's the new sharecode :


  10. Thank you very much, mate!

  11. Awesome love the B's seen them twice (both in 2008 one in Las Vegas (USA) and one in Camden (UK). NeilKelly

  12. I was at Heatwave. The Clash pulled out a few days ahead of the fest. Talking Heads -- who debuted the big band lineup of the group that day -- IMO were the standout act of the day -- and in the pre-Internet days, it was a total surprise, that blew away the crowd. But all the bands played superb sets that day.
