|Field Of Glass|
This version of FOG, recorded live at the 2985 David Patterson recorded Seaview Ballroom show is yet another interesting insight into the evolution of this little ditty. Not quite as revealing as I had first thought though...it's from 1985 not 1984 as I had first thought (dummy..)
|Field Of Glass (Barrowlands '84)|
At Barrowlands. In which The Triffids take on a rabid Bunnymen crowd with their killer punch. Not sure that the crowd is impressed but Dave certainly gives his all. This was when the band toured as support for Echo and the Bunnymen in 1984.
|Field Of Glass - early version|
A version of Field Of Glass notable for the very evident wrestling to find an arrangement. It's almost like a block of marble. We can all hear the final thing waiting to get out. Exhilarating final minute or so too.
|Field Of Glass - London School Of Economics '84|
From a show at the London School Of Economics on October 13th 1984. The show starts out uneventfully before an apparently quite small crowd who have mostly never seen the band before. It gathers a huge head of steam as they realise this is no ordinary band and Dave seems to be loving it and giving his all. Field Of Glass was the second to last song. The bit from the first breakdown on is stunning and you can hear that they're still knocking it into shape. How Dave could still have any voice left after this kind of performance is beyond me.
