Morning all.During another trawl through the muebles archives last night i found this 16 track compilation recorded apparently on the 2-tone tour in Amsterdam in 1980.

The Ramones - Barbarellas 1977

this re-post is one recorded by the Ramones at the legendary Barbarellas club in may 1977.i was told this was a soundboard recording but on further listening im thinking it isn't but probably a very good audience recording.anyway,its a great early UK show from da brudders ramone and one that's going straight on the eyepodd when i can find the cable for connecting it to the computer.anyways you all know the score when it comes to Ramones shows and this one doesn't please listen,enjoy and then as a new years resolution leave a comment.thanks!

The Phantom Chords - Unreleased album

A lot of people have been visiting the blog for this particular post ,so here it is in all its reposted glory.
the following info is from ."Following the 1989 breakup of The Damned, Vanian, guitarist Roman Jugg and bassist Bryn Merrick formed the Phantom Chords with Brendan Moon (guitar) and Clyde Dempsey (drums). In 1990, the debut single by the band ("Johnny remember me", a cover of a Geoff Goddard song) was released in the UK.
However, although an 11-track album (including "Johnny Remember Me") was written, and Polydor planned to release it, this did not happen, and only two one-sided acetates of it exist."
this was a great band who i had the pleasure of seeing live at the borderline in london in about 1994 ish and a great gig it was.they played a lot of their original stuff and if memory serves me correctly a damned cover or now its time for you all to listen,enjoy and leave a comment.thanks!
p.s ive also included the 'b-sides' from the 12" johnny remember me for you all to enjoy!

The Clash and friends cover Louie Louie

hi all.ok id better explain a bit about this post.whilst listening ages ago to the clash version of garage punk classic 'louie louie' i remembered i also had several other versions of this track.i had ones by iggy pop,motorhead,the beach boys,the kingsmen,richard berry,black flag and so on.i thought it would be a good idea to try and compile as many other versions as i could.with all the ones i found this posting could easily have run for several postings,there are so many out there!ive put the ones i liked the best including all the ones mentioned above.theres some great instrumental and easy listening versions here anyway if you like this song and like me youre a bit of an obsessive nerd(my wifes words not mine!) then youll love here you go with 27 (yes 27!!) versions of one of my top 3 alltime favourite songs.sit back, listen, relax and enjoy this compilation of a proto-garage-punk-reggae-easy listening-headbanging classic.then leave a comment.thanks!

The Specials - Live Louisiana,New Orleans January 1980

REPOST:Good evening everyone in interweb land .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!

The Clash - If music could talk vol. 1 + 2

Repost : this is a strange clash boot for you all today.i got it as a 2 disk cd-r a few days ago and honestly had never heard of it seems to be a compilation of other bootlegs from 'd.o.a' and 'rudeboy' etc.theres also some live tracks from unknown(to me anyway)sources but disk 2 has a few remixes etc that ive not heard recently and some mescaleros live pieces etc.also on disk 1 is a track called 'rudy ska' that is supposedly a recording from the clash and the specials but to me it doesnt sound like either of them(in fact i know it definitely isnt so not sure why its on here!).i think this bootleg was originally taken from vinyl sources or at least a vinyl version seems to exist.i must see if have any info on its have a listen and tell me what you think.if anything its another for the clash completists out then enjoy it and leave a comment.thanks!
