RTW As with other mid-80s live LPD records (think The Lovers), this sounds awesome and almost indistinguishable from studio work. "The Serviette" is the intro of "The Last Straw" from Asylum with its own spoken lyrics and puts you squarely in the proper time and place for the rest of the album. "Strychnine" sounds less dated in a live environment. And both beautiful and ugly, the end gets rather frantic with the amelodic "Black Roses" and an energetic take on "Premonition 16." Favorite track: The Serviette.

about

Perhaps my personal favourite of all The Pink Dots live documents.Essentially a mixed bag of very decent recordings of shows in Rennes,Munich and France in the 80s with an extended section focussing on an improvised show at the famous NL Centrum in Amsterdam - a monumental landmark in the city's underground scene all those years ago.
The original (very limited) cassette disappeared many years ago and recently commanded a silly price on Ebay, so it seemed high time to let the music be heard once more - not least for that brief piece of interplay between Patrick and Graham during "Mezhanyne".Check that live mixing from Hans Meier too.....quite superb.EK
