Can anyone help with a request please?

Im looking for the peel sessions recorded by The Outcasts and Rudi.the outcasts did 2 in 81 and 82 and Rudi in 81 i believe.ive seen them posted on youtube but im looking for them in mp3's. Im asking for these as i watched the film Good Vibrations last night (my DVD arrived yay!)its available here Good Vibrations DVD from Amazon and is definitely worth a watch and purchase( for those who dont know its the story of Terri Hooley and his setting up of the label/collective of the films title.a brilliant film). Anyway it reminded me that these bands had recorded sessions for Mr. Peel and try as i might i cant find them. Can anyone help fill this gap in my collection?Thanks

EDIT: Many thanks to Dirk over at http://sexy-loser.blogspot.de/ who very kindly sent me the outcasts from 82 and rudi from 81 peel sessions. Check out his blog some great Peel related stuff there and lots of other goodies.Thanks very much mate its much appreciated.

The Clash - Audio Ammunition

Evening all.Thought id start with a bit of advice. If any of you are in London or are planning to come to London before this Sunday Sept the 22nd get yourselves down to 75 Berwick Street(just off Oxford Street) to the Black Market Clash pop up shop/exhibition. Its feckin great. I went there today and to be able to see so many iconic pieces of clash ephemera is a chance not to be missed.(my 2 year old daughter slept through it!)I will post some photos if anyone cant make it down and would like to see any.
So when i got home in the email inbox was a link for this piece you see above. Id not heard of it before getting it but apparently its a new 5 part mini documentary(in its original form)featuring video interviews with all of the band,Joe strummer appearing courtesy of unused clips from The future is unwritten i think,and i believe the whole thing ties in with the exhibition and release of the box set etc etc.anyway this is the documentary but in a single podcasty mp3 kind of thing with all 5 parts joined together.so as you know im a bit of a technophobe so ive no idea how the sender(thanks to jimbo in antrim for the link!)was able to do this.ive just looked on youtube and just watched part 1 there.anyway each part is about a studio album and the whole thing lasts a little over 40 mins.does anyone know or have a link to a file where i can watch all 5 parts in one go?surely someone must be able to join all 5 parts together?If you can please get in touch via the comments.so please listen to this,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!

UK Subs - Punk can take it !

Evening all. Ok bit of a story behind this post.Ive been reading an excellent book while i was on holiday in Galway last week called "The palace and the punks" by Tony Hill. Its all about the ups and downs of a club called The Grey Topper. Based on personal recollections and interviews with musicians who played there, people who went to and worked there, it is a wonderful picture of life and a story a lot of us will be able to connect with and remind us of our youths. A very warm and a lot of the time laugh out loud funny story (wait till you read the one about adam ants jacket!!) it is a wonderful read and i highly recommend you buy it. You can get it on amazon here the palace and the punks in paperback and kindle versions at a very good price. Anyway there is a wonderful story about the UK Subs and it mentions a short film called "Punk can take it" directed by Julian Temple. Id never heard of it before so i asked Camden Dave what he knew of it and whether he had it. Lo and behold here it is. Its directed in a mock wartime public information style and features a mix of live footage and staged pieces too with guest appearances from the likes of Ed Tudorpole etc. When released it apparently played as an opener to the film Scum the brutal prison film with Ray Winstone. So its over to you guys to watch, enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!!
p.s dont forget to check out the book you wont regret it
Punk can take it!!

Calling Clash Fans - Should i buy this?

As you may have gathered by now i am a bit of a Clash obsessive.This mega deluxe box set is released in September and contains remastered versions of all studio albums,discs of demos rarities,live tracks ,dvd's of official videos,reprints of armagideon times,stickers badges etc etc etc and all presented in boom box style packaging designed by Paul Simonon. Now my dilemma as i own all the albums on vinyl and cd (although i cant find the sandinista vinyl!)is whether or not to buy this set.it does come with some choice extras(although i dont know the track listing of the demos and rarities) and would look feckin great in my living room with the rest of my collection. On amazon its available to pre-order for £111.81p. if i dont get it now should i wait till it comes out and then risk having to pay more or take a chance that it will be available for a bit less. I missed out when the cd-singles box set came out first but want to get that as you can get it on amazon now for about £20-25.so what should i do?buy it or forget about it?wait and risk missing out?anyway over to you listeners.id really appreciate your thoughts on this.thanks very much

The Specials - Live Louisiana,New Orleans January 1980

Edit:Good evening everyone in interweb land and a belated Happy Christmas to you all.For your listening pleasure this evening we present this wonderful "missing" show from the Specials recorded at the Warehouse in Louisiana  New Orleans on January 26th 1980.This show was very kindly donated by Lordgeorgejerry who didnt record the gig but who was there and owns the master recording of this show and he has very kindly sent me a d/l link for the show to post on the blog. I also have to thank Deco for doing a great job in splitting the file into individual tracks. As Lordgeorgejerry mentioned in his email to me he was at the show himself and remembers Neville hanging from the rafters singing "Monkey Man".They were opening for the police at this show and played a much better gig than them!!
Anyway its a great sounding show with 19 tracks for your listening pleasure. So id like you to listen enjoy,leave some comments thanking LGJ and Deco for their work.Thanks!
new link for this show!!

The Clash - Rettel Festival 1980 repost

ive been meaning to post some clash for a while but for some reason ive not got around to doing it until now.this is what www.blackmarketclash.com had to say about this show."Sourced from an FM radio broadcast this has a great sound, the best from this European/UK final leg of the 16 Tons Tour. It’s the best sounding source for hearing the particular live sound The Clash were producing at this stage in their history; very tight and dominated by Mick’s effects heavy lead guitar, played in a great mixture of short solo bursts and punk power chords."its only 9 songs but bmc explains why.anyway more new clash live stuff to come soon and some re-posts as well.so over to you to listen to this loud,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!

The Clash - Harlesden Calling 1977 Repost

a great live show from the clash recorded at the colliseum in harlesden, london in march of '77.a chaotic gig with several false starts/power failures etc and with joe shouting ' hey mick whats going on?who pulled the plug out?"or words to that effect.anyway according to the good folks at www.blackmarketclash.com a slightly longer version of this exists but with the possibility that several of these extra tracks maybe came from another show.its definitely a very listenable show and a lot better sound than other shows i have from this era of the band.so i hope you listen,enjoy and then leave a comment on it.thanks!

A Request for Help!

Evening all. I have a request for help from anyone living in Ireland who has access to BBC One N.I. Why you ask? Well on Monday night the 21st January the station is showing an hour long documentary of the undertones entitled "Teenage Kicks:The Story of The Undertones". Its on at 22.35 and it sounds like its great. Here is what the BBC website says about it BBC_Undertones. So if anyone could possibly record it and possibly send me a link to it or i can send them blank dvds or something in exchange or a dvd of a band from my collection that would be brilliant. I really want to see this documentary so any help will be greatly appreciated.Thanks very much!
