New York Dolls - Yellow Balloon, Syracuse NY 9-28-74

Here's an audience recording by a legendary band. The nice surprise here is the playing of a new song titled Teenage News which was never properly recorded by The Dolls. Peter Jordan plays bass on this and Buddy Bowser plays sax. The aborted version of Trash happened because the electric shorted out. There is a bit of distortion during the first songs but sound quality is good.

01. Something Else
02. Looking For A Kiss
03. Who Are The Mystery Girls
04. Stranded In The Jungle
05. Pills

STP - demo 1990

STP were an all-girl Grunge band from New York City and featured ex-members of the Dust Devils, Pussy Galore, and Honeymoon Killers. They only existed a short time and managed to only release one 7inch ep. Tracks 1-4 on this tape are the songs on that ep and tracks 5 and 7 have appeared on bootleg records. Sound quality is excellent.

Lydia Lunch - Live 1981

13.13 were fronted by Lydia Lunch and the backing band were three members of the Los Angeles band The Weirdos. They released one LP on the Ruby label. This live show is one continuous piece of music played for 30 minutes. I added track marks but don't know if I added them at the correct spots. Can someone who likes the band figure it out? It's an audience recording with good sound quality.

Idols - Max's Kansas City, NYC 5-03-78

I posted this show a few years back from a different source. This is an upgrade in sound quality. This was the first appearence of the Idols in New York. The band was formed in London by Barry Jones and Steve Dior on Guitars and Vocals. The drummer was Jerry Nolan from Dolls and Heartbreakers and the bass player on this show is introduced as Simon. They played a few shows in London before relocating to New York City when Jerry Nolan's visa expired. At the end of the summer Arthur Kane joined the band on bass and they backed up Sid Vicious at his New York shows. In 1979 they released their only single. Jones and Dior moved back to London in 1979 and renamed the band London Cowboys. This is an audience recording.

Television - Live 1975 + 1977

These are both audience recordings. The CBGB show is an early show and features Richard Hell on bass and the band plays a very interesting version of Blank Generation. Sound quality is good. The Whisky show, I believe, was the one where the Damned were supposed to play but Television didn't want to play with them which resulted in the Damned later writing the song Idiot Box about it. Sound quality is good.

Milk 'N' Cookies - Whiskey, Los Angeles 8-10-77

Milk 'n' Cookies were a PowerPop band from New York City that formed in 1973. In 1974 they went to England. There Sal Maida, former bass player for Roxy Music, joined the band and they record their only album, which was released in 1975. By early 1977 guitarist Ian North left the band and eventually formed a new band called Neo who had two songs on the Live At The Vortex album released in 1977. Milk 'n' Cookies went back to the US and added two guitarist to replace Ian North. They played around for a year or so but never released another record. This show recorded in Los Angeles has them as the opening band for Ramones. The introduction is by Rodney Bingenheimer. No new songs are played but they do two covers, The Best Part Of Breakin' Up, a song by The Ronettes, which is introduced as a song from their upcoming single, and a Beatles cover of You Can't Do That. This is an audience recording and had good sound quality. I got this copy in a cdr swap about 8 years ago and, unfortunately, the first song skips.
