My Bloody Valentine - Dortmund Live Station, 3rd April 1989

Here you go then Robert. I don't normally do requests but I'm in a good mood today. York City FC have a new manager and hopefully he will be the man to turn things around and get us into the play-offs by the end of the season.... has anyone seen my pig? It appears to have flown off!
Anyway this is actually a really good recording of the pre-"Loveless" My Bloody Valentine. Personally I prefer Loveless over Isn't Anything but that's not to say the latter isn't a brilliant record.

The Fall - Manchester, Band On The Wall, 23rd August 1978

Someone mentioned the other day that all of the Fall bootlegs on this site are very similar in regards to setlist and performance so I think it's high time we heard a really old one. This set was recorded at Manchester's legendary Band On The Wall back in the mists of time and is a great example of a young fresh faced Fall. Mark even sounds in a good mood from time to time.

Pod Fodder (Volume Fifteen)

Download Here

1. Bad Party - Feathered Hair & Tightass Jeans (Animal Disguise)
This is a track from the album "Coming Out Slowly" which has been around since the summer but I've only just got a copy.

2. The Felt Tips - The Love That Never Spoke It's Name (Wee Pop)
This track is one of the b sides on the new single "Bought & Sold".

3. Sky Larkin - Molten (Wichita)
The Leeds bands debut album will be available sometime in January and is going to be probably the first really important record of 2009.

24th November - London, Goldsmiths SU (with Those Dancing Days)
25th November - Leeds, Cockpit (with Those Dancing Days)
27th November - Sheffield, Fuzz Club (with Those Dancing Days)
28th November - Lancaster, Lancaster Library (with Those Dancing Days)

14th December - Belfast, Black Box (with Stereolab)
16th December - London, Hoxton Bar & Grill (Wichita Christmas Party)

4. Stereolab - Low Fi (Too Pure)
I just thought, what with Sky Larkin supporting Stereolab next month it might be nice to remember the time when Stereolab made really good records. This is the first track from their 1994 "Low Fi" E.P.

5. True Widow - Corpse Master (End Sounds)
True Widow come from Dallas, Texas and this is a track from their rather excellent self titled debut album which was released last week.

6. Shooting At Unarmed Men - Peristalsis (Too Pure)
Taken from what I thought was the second album from Melbourne's Shooting At Unarmed Men. It's called "Triptych" and turns out to be their fourth which means there are two albums which I don't have. Damn!

7. Peasant - Impeccable Manners (Paper Garden)
This is a great record. The album is called "On The Ground" and will be released through Paper Garden at the end of January. I think you'll be hearing more from this album on Buring World before then but this is the track I keep coming back to at the moment. I particularly like the line "I am the man that I once found revolting". Peasant are currently on tour in the states and if you pop over to the Paper Garden website you will undoubtedly uncover all the info your heart could possibly require.

8. Official Secrets Act - Do Not Be Alarmed (One Little Indian)
This is the B side of the current single "So Tomorrow".

1st December - Glasgow, King Tuts
2nd December - Manchester, Dry Bar

4th December - Runcorn, Underground
5th December - Birmingham, Barfly

11th December - Bristol, Start The Bus

9. One Dove - Transient Truth (Boys Own)
12" single from 1992.

10. Weenliz - Cub (Winning Sperm Party)
This is a track from another free to download bundle of joy brought into the world care of the nice people at Winning Sperm Party and some mad Scots who call themselves Weenliz.

20th December - Glasgow, Stereo
9th January - Glasgow, 13th Note

11. Time. Space. Repeat - Future Song (Samu)
This is a track from the new Time. Space. Repeat. album which was released just last week and can be purchased from . It only costs a fiver and four pounds of that will be donated to Shelter so you can buy a bloody good record and do a good deed all at the same time, perfect.

12. Break The Box - Prostitutes & Video Games (Nothing's Remix) (Breakin Even)

13. Mutators - Trick Animals (Nominal)
Yet another track from the box of brilliance that is "Secret Life". As this record is so hard to get hold of I am considering putting the whole damn thing on here as some kind of life improving excersise. Oh wait!! Their might be a second pressing coming up... on BLACK vinyl.

14. The Ape Drape Escape - Broke My Hip (to the beat) (Promo)
I can't tell you anything about this track other than it's by Sheffield band Ape Drape Escape and it kicks ass. What more do you need to know?

29th November - London, Shorditch, London Catch

15. Xylos - In The Bedroom (Self Released)
This track comes from the New York bands new "Bedrooms EP" which you can download for free from the bands website HERE.
20th December - New York, Piano's

The Field Mice - Londres, The Dome 21st November 1991

This is actually one of my all time favorite bootlegs. The sound is far from perfect but I think you get a great "feel" from this one. There just aren't enough Sarah bootlegs around.

2. Coach Station Reunion
3. New Pop Song
4. Below The Stars

Pod Fodder (Volume Fourteen)

It's that time of year again when you need to start thinking about your favorite tracks of the year. This is probably going to work the same as last year simply send an email to containing a list of your top tunes (any amount) and around Christmas time a downloadable top thirty will appear as if by magic. The only rule is that it has to have been released in 2008 and isn't a re-issue. I think it's been a great year and I'm really looking forward to seeing your lists. On with the fodder.....

Download Here

1. No Age - Revolving Credit For Kitty (Tour 7")
This is the No Age contribution to the Shred Yr Face tour 7".

2. Burningpilot - Automatic Text Generator (Transgressive)
I've been looking forward to this album ever since I played the last single "Accelerate" on a previous Fodder. The album is called "Cold Caller" and does exactly what you would want it to. My only slight critisism is that it sounds just a little bit too well produced but it's well worth a sniff.

21st November - London, Hope & Anchor
28th November - St Albans, The Horn

3. Boyracer - The Heartbreaker (555)
Boyracer have been around for ages. They used to be the black sheep of Sarah Records and they are still ploughing their own furrow. The latest album is called "Sunlight Is The Best Antiseptic" and sounds as raw as ever. I'm not sure how available this record is but if you pop over to the 555 website I'm sure you'll be able to furnish yourself with more info than you could possibly need.

4. Clinic - Tomorrow (DFA Remix) (Domino)
Originally a track on "Do It" which seems like ages ago "Tomorrow" is been released as a single. This is the most exiting part though, the DFA remix which takes it from a record you probably should buy to a record which you need to own. The single also includes a new song called "Hijack" and will be available from 24th November. They have some gigs coming up which sound very interesting. They are calling these happenings "Planetarium Of The Soul", a collaboration between Clinic and animator Clemens Habicht. According to the poster you will witness live music and animation bleeding together in a contemporary vortex of psychedelic sight and sound, so I think we can expect slightly more than a bloke with a slide show. If anyone gets to one of these gigs please let me know all about it. I'm intrigued.

18th November - Manchester, Deaf Institute
19th November - Glasgow, The Arches
20th November - Birmingham, Factory Club
22nd November - Leeds, Brudnell Social Club
23rd November - London, Scala

5. Bob - Skylark (House Of Teeth)
Taken from the 1990 "Tired EP"

6. Be Invisible Now - I Fiori Devono Moririe (Kill Shaman)
This comes from a split EP which Be Invisible Now share with Expo 70 Good stuff.

7. The Manhattan Love Suicides - Jonny Boy (Squirrel)
This is a band who really should have been featured more on Burning World escpecially as they come from just twenty miles down the road in Leeds. Taken from the album "Burnt Out Landscapes". I really must make an effort to catch them live. I bet they sound great.

1st December - London, Hoxon Bar & Kitchen (with Asobi Seksu)
13th December - Leeds, The Cockpit (with The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart)
17th December - London, The Lexington (with The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart)

8. Plaaaydoh - Cambodia (Winning Sperm Party)
Plaaaydoh are back with yet another free EP. It's called the "Friend EP" largly because it contains for cover versions of songs by their friends, or more specifically Dirty Summer, Grozny, Orzelda & Triple School. The whole EP can be downloaded completely free from the Winning Sperm Party website..... You still here????

9. Dance Me Pregnant - Possession (No Dancing)
This is a track from the split 7" Dance Me Pregnant share with Ladyfinger.

10. The Child Molesters - I'm Gonna Punch You In The Face (Sympathy For The Record Industry)
Back when I was a teenager (not all that long ago) I used to collect 7" singles on the Sympathy For The Record Industry label. To be honest most of them were pretty average but they always came on nice coloured vinyl with some great artwork on a fold out sleeve. This is one of my favorites. I think this was originally released back in 1978 and re-issued by Sympathy but I don't have an original copy so I could be wrong. This particular version comes from a double 7" pack which is on beautiful, almost translucent blue vinyl. There are a few scratches in places but I think this still sounds great.

11. Norma - God's Will (Promo)
Taken from the forthcoming album "Book Of Norma" which will I think may be available now.... and yes, they come from Sweden.

12. LOL - Love Leaves No Scar (Hixxy Remix) (All Over The World)
It's been ages since any quality happy hardcore has come my way. Fear not, that wait is at an end. This comes from the new LOL single and is definitly my favorite mix.

13. Astrobrite - Booster (Vinyl Junkie)
Taken from the album "One Hit Wonder".

14. Decomposure - Excerpt 7 (Blank Squirrel)
This track comes from the new Decomposure album "Humidity Patient Guide" which can be downloaded for free from the Blank Squirrel Music website.

15. Youthmovies - Become An Island (Blast First)
Taken from the "Polyp EP" which was released last week.

19th November - Liverpool, Barfly Loft
20th November - Glasgow, King Tuts
21st November - Edinburgh, Caberet Voltaire
22nd November - Carlisle, Brickyard

The Fall - York, The Duchess, 13th November 2008

It's always good when The Fall play in your home town. I had been looking forward to this gig for ages and then disaster struck. I wasn't going to be in York. While the majestic M.E. Smith was gracing a stage just down the road from my house I would be in a shitty hotel in Birmingham. Typical isn't it, the first time I have had to go anywhere overnight all year and it had to fall on this week. Anyway all is not lost thanks to the superb and creatures who call themselves The Consortium and did a fine job of recording this gig. Listening to it only makes me more angry about not being there but I suppose there's always next time. That's one of the great things about The Fall, you never have long to wait before the next gig.

29th November - Paisley, Crow Bar

This is a track from a 12" single which has this track from Noisia on one side and an equally good work by Feed Me on the other.

3. The Alexandria Quartet - Into The Light (Nettwerk)
There isn't much information available about The Alaxandria Quartet. This is one of two tracks on a promo cd which presumably is going to be released in the near future.

4. The Paddingtons - What's The Point In Anything New (Mama Bear)
Taken from the Hull bands second album "No Mudane Options".

9th November - Leeds, Cockpit

5. Atomic Hooligan - Electro Ain't Electro (Rico Tubbs Mix) (Botchit & Scarper) Great new 12" from Atomic Hooligan.

9th November - Cardiff, Crobar

Another track from the brilliant "Secret Life" album.

8. Revolver - Heaven Sent An Angel (Hut)
No real reason for including this track other than I was playing the 12" ealier in the week and I think it still sounds great. Taken from the 1991 "45 ep". You can see some of the video for this track on their Myspace page

9. Tronik Youth - Live Cry Laugh Die (Back Yard)

10. The Notwist - Boneless (City Slang)
This is a track from the current single.

17th November - Bristol, Thelka

19th November - Glasgow, King Tuts
20th November - Birmingham, Barfly
21st November - London, ULU

11. Los Campesinos - Death To Los Campesinos (Napoleon III Remix)
So as the mighty Shred Yr Face tour continues to roll around Europe to huge acclaim. I've yet to hear anybody say it was anything other than a treat it's probably high time we heard a track from the tour 7". It's basically a seven inch single which contains one track from each band (Los Campesinos, New Times Viking & No Age). These are guaranteed to be collectors items in years to come so if you have one look after it and keep it away from the cats (mine are particularly fond of batting piles of singles to see how far they can make them fall).

12. Sky Larkin - Beeline (Wichita)
I think pretty likely that the debut album from Leeds based Sky Larkin could well be an early contender for the best albums of 2009. The five track sampler I have is simply stunning and gets played at least twice daily in my house. The album is as far as I know self-titled and should be with us in January.

21st November - Bristol, Thelka (with Those Dancing Days)
23rd November - Leeds, Cockpit (with Those Dancing Days)
24th November - London, Goldsmiths S.U. (with Those Dancing Days)

27th November - Newcastle, Other Rooms (with Those Dancing Days)
28th November - Lancaster, Lancaster Library (with Those Dancing Days)
16th December - London, Hoxton Bar & Grill (Wichita Xmas Party)
18th December - Paris, Maroquinerie (Wichita Xmas Party with Los Campesinos, Those Dancing Days & Lovvers)

13. The Phantom Band - Folksong Oblivion (Chemikal Underground)
This is a great track. It comes from the debut Phantom Band record "Checkmate Savage" which will be released through The Delgadoes Chemikal Underground label on 26th January. I think we'll be hearing a lot more from this bunch of Glasweigans in 2009. Talking of next year you will soon need to vote for your favorite tracks of this year in our bigger than ever end of year spectacular. I say spectacular, it's just a download really comprising of your favorite tunes of the year and I promise not to cheat and re-arrange things to suit my mood. As long as there is at least two Fall tracks in there I'll be a happy man. Talking of happy men you could make Mr Vincent a lot more cheereful by popping over for a look at his new book review blog "Mr Ripleys Enchanted Books" and if you leave a comment you'll make his day. Anyway back to The Phantom Band. You can catch them live at...

15th November - Edinburgh, Voodoo Rooms
14th December - Dundee, Dexters (with ILIKETRAINS)
15th December - Glasgow, King Tuts (with ILIKETRAINS)
16th December - Newcastle, The End (with ILIKETRAINS)
19th December - Glasgow, Fairfield Club (with Malcolm Middleton)

14. The Legends - Seconds Away (Labrador)
Yes I know we've featured this track before but so what. It's bloody great (escpecially at mind numbing, skull bending volume). It's also the bands new single which was released just last week and is well worth a purchase.

15. Japanther - I The Indigene (Wantage)
Taken from the new album "Tut Tut Now Shake Ya Butt".
