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 JAM : Brighton Centre 11/12/82 (Farewell Performance)

I roiginally posted this as a sharecode along with several others for Farewell Tour gigs in the early days of the blog. Brand new (working !!) sharecode posted 17/2/11.

All tracks labelled & presented in MP3 (ignore the FLAC details on the sleeve - too large to upload sensibly!!)
Thanks to Phil for sending me the artwork and, as always, respect to the original bootleggers.

Sadly no footage exists of this gig... Instead here's a couple of tracks from Paris. Both always meant a great deal to me, especially "But I'm Different Now"...

GOD... must just add one of my favourites..."Private Hell"...

& in conclusion, we'll employ a double negative & end with "Start"...  Can't get over the quality of the USA footage (1980) of "Start" & "...Hell"


  1. Hi Skamanc,
    I m affraid you have to re-post this great show cause the flag-link don t works...

  2. feck feck feck... More sharecode problems... I'll repost / reupload the gig tonight mate.

  3. Mate that ABC fridays footage is superb, love the guitar on private hell stunning, my personal fav album by them is setting sons which i think had a harder edge [punky),lso love the stripped down versions of just weller on guitar on extras,fav footage is of them on something else doing eton rifles that is punk rock in full effect

  4. Tested this code & its working as it should :


  5. Super Thanks for this one Skamanc !!!!!!
    Link works fine now and this farewell gig is AMAZING !!!

  6. Thanks Skamanc, I downloaded this on behalf of two friends who are big Jam fans, but never saw them live. I did at least see them at the Roundhouse in 77 supporting the Stranglers and then there penultimate gig at GCH in 82.
    Thanks for posting and sharing.

  7. thank you very much

  8. hello all , memories of that night. i was singer in the support band Apocalypse. we did our gig and then legged it round the front of stage so we could take in the last of a fab band that we all admired and respected. a mixture of elation and sadness but a night never to forget. cheers Tony Page
