UK Subs - Peel session e.p

this is a compilation of 5 tracks recorded by the band for the john peel show but i know they did a lot more.a great band led by the charismatic and very friendly charlie harper.when i lived in brixton he used to drink in the same pub (the prince of wales if youre interested!) and was always up for a game of pool or a chat.so for a blast from punk rocks glorious past give this session a listen.enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!

Joy Division - Peel Sessions

this is a compilation of various recordings that joy division did for john peel.its not as the cover suggests 'the complete' recordings but camden dave told me that this is all he had of that particular cd.i cant find the full artwork for it im afraid but i dont think that will detract from hearing classic tracks such as 'shes lost control'and 'transmission'.incidentally if anyone has the full version of this cd please get in touch as i believe the full version also has interviews etc on it that i would really like to hear.so enjoy this one and then leave a comment.thanks!

The Jam - Live from Scumbag College

ok this absouloutely cracking live bootleg from the jam was recorded at reading university in 1979.i only called the post 'scumbag college' because of the label on the back cover and i thought it was funnier.its also the name of the university from the young ones.but im digressing now.this show has great sound so it must be a mixing desk recording.so hopefully youll really enjoy this show that showcases the legendary live power of the jam.so now put on your parkas and sta-press trousers (maybe some shoes as well if youre going outside) and dance, dance,dance.then after enjoying leave a comment.thanks!

The Clash - a night of treason

this is a great recording from the early days of the clash with the band at their fiery best.a wonderful document from punks beginnings.over now to www.blackmarketclash.com for a few words on this gig.
"The Clash were incendiary. The sound was big and loud and they climbed all over their brace of songs like kids on a building site, crashing guitars and a rabble-rousing Joe. Then a student threw a beer glass. [Depressingly, it was always students who threw glasses and bottles.] Joe threw his arms above his head and shouted ‘Under heavy manners!’ He sought out the perpetrator, who got on stage. Joe questioned him and the guy looked sheepish. Then Sid Vicious got on stage, muttering into the mic and looking well-named. A few minutes later and they got back to the wonderful racket."
so now all you have to do is download,burn to c.d,listen,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!
