The Film School Daytrotter session has been posted (from 18 November 2008 I think). This band is one of my favorite bands (I saw them live twice last year which is a lot for me living in the sticks where we don't get many concerts)

Los Campesinos! Black Session (March 3, 2008)

Vanilla Ice - Live at the Roche Motel - Pocatello, Idaho - May 21, 1999

Here it is! Definitely in the 'So Bad It's Good' category' this one has to be heard to be believed. Pay close attention to the lyrics and sorry that the tracks are not tagged.

SXSW torrents (ALL of the bands)

Here is a nice find for indie music lovers - bittorrent mp3's for all (or at least almost all) of the artists that are appearing or have appeared at South By Southwest from 2005-2008. I don't know if the bands cooperated or not so this one may not be totally on the up and up. Link

Cardiac Arrest - The Obvious Identity (1980)

Mutant Sounds has posted this tape rip from this cult UK band. I am pretty sure that this will never see an official cd release so grad it while you can.


20/20 - S/T (1979)

The Twilight Zone blog has posted this gem from 1979, interesting in that they usually don't post new-wave.

Kostas Tournas - Choraphia (1972)

(From hippy-djkit again) Excellent psychedelic Greek album. Get it!

Link (direct to music)

Various Artists - In Fractured Silence (1984)

>Mutant Sounds has posted this compilation of early 80's experimental bands, none of which I had heard of until now but very interesting.

Laghonia - Glue (1971)

Another excellent post by hippy-djkit featuring the other Laghonia album, Glue. Peruvian psych/progressive at it's finest.

Link (direct to music)

U-Spaces Psychedelic Archaeology Series (1960's)

Chocoreve has been posting most of the releases from the U-Spaces yahoo group. All of these cd's feature rare 45's that have never been compiled on modern day comp cd's. I am a member but I really do not participate much, you can easily trade for higher quality audio cd's of this series by joining the group and they do have some really excellent liner notes to go with the cd's if you drop by the group.


Loghonia - Etcetera (1971)

Hippy-djkit has posted a few albums by this Pervian Psych/Progressive band but this one is my absolute favorite. Very very good and it's a shame that these guys aren't more well known.

Joy Division - Les Bains Douches - December 18, 1979

Here is a nice Joy Division bootleg from 1979.

Tracks 1-9 recorded live in Paris, 18 december 1979.

Tracks 13-16 recorded live in Eindhoven, 18 january 1980.

Mission of Burma - WERS FM (1981-82)

Egg City Radio

Pearl Jam - Atlanta - April 3, 1994 (1994)

This may be the greatest Pearl Jam concert ever so if you don't have it (it was bootlegged A LOT) and you are a fan you should definitely get it now.

Simple Minds - Liverpool July 22, 2003 (2003)

I was always a Simple Minds fan BEFORE they had that hit song in the Breakfast Club movie. Their later stuff never really thrilled me that much although it was ok. They do play some of their older songs in this set posted by the Ultimate Bootleg Experience.

Oasis - MTV Unplugged (1996)

MTV's UNPLUGGED series was one of those things that should have been horrible (especially for bands like Nirvana) but usually ended up being the opposite of that. Smuggled Sounds has posted Oasis' set.

U2 - Live In Leiden (1-7-1982)

I just found this early U2 boot at U2FanLife. Enjoy.

The Cure - Buried Sounds (1979-1980)

Another cool one from The Ultimate Bootleg Experience. This one features a ton of rare early early Cure demos.

Interpol - Live In Milan (Nov. 13, 2007)

Another nice radio broadcast from the Smuggled Sounds blog. Another of my 'favorite' bands (I have at least a hundred favorite bands). Good quality Interpol bootlegs seem to be few and far between so grab this one!

Link (direct to music)

The Cure - Amsterdam 1980 (1980)

A nice Cure concert from 1980 posted at the Smuggled Sounds blog - very early in the band's career. Who would have thought that of all of the bands that were popular in 1980 that this one would still be around?

Sixties Rebellion Volume 9 - Various Artists (1960's)

Tappi Tikarrass - Two Albums (1983)

One of Bjork's early bands, really good stuff here. Much better than Kukl in my opinion but not as good as the Sugarcubes, one of my favorites.

From the Mutant Sounds blog, a frickin' awesome repository of cool and rare stuff!

Cocteau Twins - Rarities and Non-Album Tracks (2005)

I couldn't say it better so I quote directly from the posting on i_am_rare:

Информации об этом сборнике Вы не найдете ни на музыкальных форумах и сайтах, ни в блогах или сообществах, ни в остальных интернет-ресурсах.

Sure I could get it translated but why?

You kind of have to be in the mood for this band but if you are they are pretty good.
