new audio pt3
« on: February 16, 2011, 09:58:16 AM »
Hope you're keeping up with these. It never rains but it pours.  Two songs from same Seaview Ballroom show....Hanging Shed (one of Marty's very finest bass lines to my mind) and yet another version of FOG to add to the ongoing exploration of the evolution of this song.  
(edit) I had thought for some reason this show was from 1984....wrong, it's from 1985. That explains a lot. Why Field Of Glass is in its full length version for a start. The band sounds very different to the 1984 edition. One UK trip brought a tough sheen to the music.

Yeah, thanks Graham. I managed to download and CD-R 'em today. Love the acoustic version of Too Hot with you and Dave. Reminded me of the version you recorded especially and put up here a few years back. Similar finesse about the guitar parts, harmonies and delivery. No Fun is quite the opposite. Not a radical departure from the Stooges version but none the worse for having similar voomph. Hanging Shed has, as you say, a great bassline and a very dark and powerful general atmosphere. Good to hear a live performance of it. I think I put Hanging Shed down as my fave track from Treeless Plain in some poll or other from here in busier times and I stand by that - although, as with everything created by Dave, Old Ghostrider and several others on there make the decision a fine one.

Just struck by this and thought I'd share the moment:

#189 Bosque Brown - Leaning on the everlasting arms

The original but still worthwhile.

Love that hymn but it'd be nothing without her.
There is a great version on Merle Haggatd's 'Land of many
Churches' featuring The San Quentin Male Choir. It has that hint
of brute force that makes Gospel music sublime.

The Seaview Ballroom? I'm reasonably certain I've played
there but it doesn't LOOK like a BALLROOM in my memory.
Can you remember the place , Graham?

I don't have many memories if the Seaview Ballroom but plenty of people do. The Triffids played there three times I think but I didn't play with them on any of those occasions.

That version of FOG was recorded on a Toshiba Walkman if you can believe that, just standing down the front and pointing the built-in mic in the direction of the band, but it is one of my favourite versions, something about the furious way the guitars are played in it....David Patterson has cleaned the audio up nicely, thanks! :) it does bring back very vivid memories indeed.
