X-Ray Spex - Live at CBGB's 1978

This is X-Ray Spex playing live at CBGB's in New York USA, on the 17th March 1978. X-Ray Spex were one of the few female (Poly Styrene) fronted punk bands from that era and were summed up more recently by John Lydon as follows - "Them, they came out with a sound and attitude and a whole energy - it was just not relating to anything around it - superb ." Source: Possibly soundboard (levels and audience noise suggest this is the case). Sound Quality: 1970's punk - come on don't expect Hi-Fi - highly listenable good quality stereo will have to do! Genre: Punk (UK) - New Wave Set: Full live concert Set List: 1 - Artificial 2 - I'm obsessed with you 3 - Let's submerge 4 - Identity 5 - Plastic bag 6 - I live off you 7 - Germ free adolescents 8 - I'm a poser 9 - Genetic engineering 10 - I'm a cliche 11 - The day the world turned dayglo 12 - Oh bondage up yours! 13 - Artificial 14 - Identity Links: Official Website HERE ,

Garbage - Dallas Texas - 1998

With one of Scotland's (UK) finest female vocalists, it's easy to forget that Garbage are primarily an American band from Madison Wisconsin. This is Garbage back on the 15th October 1998 live in concert at the Bronco Bowl, Dallas, Texas, USA. Source: I am uncertain, the originator of this copy suggests soundboard, however it may be from local FM (anyone shed some light on this?). Sound Quality: Highly listenable (soundboard?) good stereo at 160kbps. Genre: Indie / Alternative Rock Set: Full live concert Set List: 1. Temptation Waits 2. Not My Idea 3. I Think I'm Paranoid 4. Special 5. My Lover's Box 6. Hammering In My Head 7. Thirteen 8. #1 Crush 9. Stupid Girl 10. Vow 11. Wicked Ways 12. Queer 13. Push It 14. Only Happy When It Rains 15. You Look So Fine 16. Milk 17. Trip My Wire 18. When I Grow Up Links: Official Website HERE MySpace site HERE and Wikipedia HERE . Comments: It seems likely Garbage have run their course, which is preferable to releasing a tire
