Missed it in 2003? Here it is again, from Burkhard! With some additional stories here.
Great show, atomic solos, fun moments, amazing special guests – should be released!
If it’s Friday this must be the Friday Boot! We’re off to Germany again: Dortmund, 25 March 1979.
The FZ Tape Reviewing Society says:
(…) it’s in FZ’s City Of Tiny Lites solo where the show comes to life. This is the first Outside Now jam in circulation, with FZ mulling over a phrase he also played a lot in 1980 which ended up in The Radio Is Broken. This is also the debut of the “vampless” Easy Meat, and possibly the best of this last week of ’79, despite the lack of Catholic Girls.
You’ll never guess what I went through this morning, prior to posting this week’s Friday Boot — though you’re free to take a guess.
Say what? Oh, on to the boot already. Yes. That’d be Montreal, Canada, November 2nd 1984, uploaded by Our Man In France.
Have a great weekend! :)
This week’s Friday Boot, courtesy of Gilles, takes us back to Hamburg (again!), February 20, 1976 — exactly one month after a couple of Australian gigs which were later released by the ZFT as FZ:OZ (wiki).
Check it out. Oh, and as an extra, I’m leaving Magic Fingers’ Hamburg ’88 offering online for another week.
Someone mentioned that they were expecting a 1988 show last week, so who am I to disappoint? Pat Buzby reminds us that this show features nothing composed after 1976, and calls it “a blessing, though it feels bad in a sense to say it”.
Well I don’t know about that, but any show that features Florentine Pogen, Andy, Inca Roads, Eat That Question and then Black Napkins, one after the other, is ok by me. Add the Black Page as an opener (you gotta love the ’88 arrangement), Dupree’s, Cleveland and Big Swifty among others, and you have the makings of one fine show.
Whether it is or not… well, that’s for you to decide. As always, I await your comments with interest.
The Venue: Congress Centrum, Hamburg, Germany
The Date: 6 May 1988
The Venue: Alte Oper, Frankfurt, Germany
The Date: 11th June 1982
There is one main reason to love this show (plenty of other reasons, of course, but one main one); The Black Page. I was listening to it just last week and experienced one of those “Jeez, this is good” moments (I then realized that Frank must have been pleased with it too, as you will find if you grab your copy of ‘Guitar‘ and give ‘Move It Or Park It‘ a listen).
Anyway, thinks I, the KUR aficionados have to hear this! So this week’s offering takes us back to June 11 1982, and the early evening show at the Alte Oper in Frankfurt…

Ah the joys of Audio Hijack! Dweezil on Rockline is now available for download right over here. The file is about 101Mb, so please download directly to your hard disc (right-click, save as) instead of listening online. Bandwidth is a costly commodity…
Update: Our pal Balint has split the above monolithic track into consumable segments. Download here.
This week’s boot takes us back to Melbourne, 22 january ’76. Apologies for the rudimentary naming of the tracks (i.e. Track 01, 02 etc) but I haven’t had time to listen to this one yet myself! Besides, today’s my birthday so I’ve other things on my mind. Whew, that went fast…
VOC #35 has our buddy SOFA chiming in once more. He says:
The band is called “Reckless” and it is the brainchild of my buddy Scott, and the drummer Jim. The idea is for this band to play American Country-Pop covers – because that’s what’s “hot’ around these parts (besides Karaoke, and synthesized-midi-driven dreck) and that’s what will get you hired – not that I’m Only in It for the Money, or anything…
When we were putting together a list of tunes, I suggested “Stealin” (sorry, I’m really just a dumb classic rocker at heart and I love Uriah Heep) because it was an old hit, it had ‘country’ lyrics, and it wasn’t Rascal Flats – who are great, don’t get me wrong, but enough is fucking enough…
This band’s “history” (we were ‘together’ for a little over a year) is too much like Spinal Tap to get into – our drummer never spontaneously combusted is the only difference.
I loves me some classic rock! Have a listen:

Are you up for some vintage Grand Wazoo? Of course you are. Gilles will be providing your fix in the week to come: The Oval, London, 16 September 1972 — up for download as of… now! Enjoy.
VOC #34! Pablo says:
Here it is my contribution to VOC. This tune is named “La danza de los colibrÃes esquizofrÃ©nicos” (“Dance of the Schizophrenic Hummingbirds”) and I did it all by myself on my PC.
I don’t have much more to say, except I’m a 33 year-old drummer who lives in Argentina, plays in a band called Panza and has a blog (in Spanish). In near future, I’ll upload more sounds to this site on MySpace.
A very nice track, which carries a whiff of Mahavishnu Orchestra, dixit Dr Sharl. Have a listen:
