Nine Inch Nails – Survivalism (with Saul Williams, live in Atlanta 2009-05-10)

There’s lots of lovely HD quality stuff in the Nine Inch Nails Live 2009 channel.


20 October 2009

I should have been busy working on other stuff today, so quite naturally ended up nursing an obsession of mine; browsing through metric buttloads of catchy songs recorded live. Here’s what I found:

Van Morrison – Moondance (Live at Montreux 1980)

John Mellencamp – Jack & Diane (Live at the Budokan, Tokyo 1986)

The Stone Roses – (Song For My) Sugar Spun Sister

Supergrass – Moving (Bizarre Festival 1999)

23 September 2009

Neil Young – Keep On Rockin’ In The Free World (Saturday Night Live, September 1989)

A classic TV live performance of the anti-Bush anthem of the late 80’s.

6 September 2009

Pink Floyd – Learning To Fly (Live, 1988)

This audio only track of the same recording from Delicate Sound Of Thunder might sound a tad better but lacks the stunning visuals. Delicate Sound Of Thunder was the first album to be played in space.

5 September 2009

The Cardigans – Erase/Rewind (Live at Rockpalast 1999)

The song is perhaps only moderately catchy in itself, but that certain, dark electric piano part really brings back weird childhood memories from 11 years ago.

17 August 2009

Faith No More – Caffeine (Live, Rock Am Ring 1995)

The performance at Bizarre Festival 1997 is also available as a decent sounding recording (and a more strict dress code). Hanging With MTV from 1992 is good as well.

Wolfgang’s Vault’s Concert Archive

As a fan of old live rock recordings it’s strange that I never really heard of Wolfgang’s Vault and their concert archive before. Just found them the other day when I was looking for some trivia.

Been enjoying Robert Plant at Frank Erwin Center (Austin, TX, 09.21.1983) for a while, samples: Slow Dancer, Burning Down One Side.

While listening to the archive requires registration, the streaming service is available at no cost. Some shows are available for download, some for free, some require payment.

Moby – That’s When I Reach For My Revolver (Live)

Old Mission Of Burma tune.

10 August 2009

INXS – Kiss the Dirt (Falling Down the Mountain) (Live)

Shitty recording. This one may sound better if you have enough bass.

31 July 2009

Youtube HD: David Bowie – Blue Jean (Live 1987, Glass Spider Tour)

Also: China Girl, another Blue Jean (Live on The Tonight Show in 2003, A Reality Tour).

24 July 2009

“Nirvana vs. Rick Astley” – Never Gonna Give Your Teen Spirit Up

Brilliant mashup by DJ Morgoth.

Riffs similar to that of Smells Like Teen Spirit can be heard in a lot of songs e.g. Louie Louie, More Than A Feeling, 3’s & 7’s. Catchy.

EDIT: The original video link is dead, this one works as of 2010-02-24.


23 July 2009

Blind Faith – Can’t Find My Way Home (Live in Hyde Park, 1969)

From the same concert: Had To Cry Today, Under My Thumb, Sea of Joy

19 July 2009

Fine Young Cannibals – She Drives Me Crazy (Live performance at 1990 Grammy Awards)

I shun radio because of this medium’s way of overplaying specific songs. Thanks to this I’m able to actually enjoy old hits like this one for what they are: really good, catchy music. Also: childhood memories.

14 July 2009

Youtube High Definition: Radiohead Live @ Saitama – Oct 5, 08 – Tokyo, Japan

Some of the obviously catchy choices are 15 Step and Paranoid Android.

Related: Five Step, Mashup of Take Five and 15 Step by Overdub (mp3).
