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 CURE : Girls Don't Cry (1979-80) 2x CD Live Bootleg

Further thanks / danke to Herr Pauli for this. Double 1979-80 live boot from The Cure when they were still quite an interesting outfit & this is well worth a listen. One large file contains both CD's (seperated) plus the artwork. Please remember to leave a message for Pauli should you d/load this...Cheers.

For Tom & Robert


  1. Danke mein Freund,another German Pearl transported to us, I think the Cure were always trying to develop as a group,from punk to goth with a little bit of horror thrown in!I have seen them a few times but the other year at o2 arena to see them do killing an arab and 10.15 and grinding halt was very emotional top post mate.

  2. I loved their earliest stuff Martin lad. All me muckers at school seemed to like their early Goth image stuff which I hated admittedly.

  3. the cure belongs to the "soundtrack of my life"
    yes skamanc the earliest stuff was brilliant.
    side 1&2 in berlin 1980-berlin in the 80ths was an amazing city (my brother lived there)-so many clubs,young and wild bands,squatters-in the mid 80`s i had a lot of great nights in berlin.

  4. Boys Don't Cry is my all time favourite song. Pop Master Class

  5. This is proving to be a very popular post. Thanks again Pauli...

  6. really adored the cure ,upto and including phonography.they had so much atmosphere,didnt mind the stuff that followed,but it was never so special and moody again,thanx for this great post lidge84

  7. Thanx a lot for this. I used to have the double disc vinyl bootleg, until hard times forced me to sell it. Will be playing this and The Jam final gig tonight when Rapidshare finally allow me to download both.
