A big thank you to Anders Ilar who literally sent me this rare recording this afternoon (2 November, 2014). It features LPDs live in Sundsvall in 1989 on Swedish Radio plus a little interview. Quality is high , but be sure the sound of that raging crowd you hear at the beginning was for a different band. The brutal truth is that maybe 30 people saw the show after a spectacular 10 hour drive through Sweden in the middle of Winter.Indeed there were literally walls of snow lining the route. Still it was worth it - the hardy souls who showed up treated us well..

Jean Jacques Birge is an artist with a history so rich with good music, it's possible to forget that there's life outside this submarine. Hours of deep listening await the curious listener. Legendary Pink Dots

Edward Live in 86, the year after I first found this wonderful artist and a year before I would see him live myself.
The technical difficulties at the beginning giving this an extra feel of realism. Oddly, Severed Heads would have similar
difficulties in Seattle the same year opening for Skinny Puppy. Professionals rolling with the punches of live performance.
A true gem, this! Nine Lines of Crime
