Moving Targets - Boston 1985/1990

Moving Targets were from Boston Mass. They released several albums between 1986 and 1993. Both these shows are radio broadcasts and have very good sound quality. Can anyone fill in the unknown song titles?

  1. What's the word on the WERS upload? Been looking forward to it for a while. Keep up the great job on the blog. Cheers!

  2. The word is that it will be a while until I can post a link for it. I have to move to a new place this week except I haven't found a new place yet so my stereo, computer and tapes are going into storage until I find a place. I can't tell you when I will be able to edit that show and post a link.

  3. Good to see you back. Can you please upload the WERS, Boston 9-15-85? Thanks.

  4. like above Brett , WERS would be good , but did the 1990 one ok.

  5. I was in Moving Targets. I would be happy to provide song titles and information.

  6. A big thank you to Bat29/Noise Addiction II for making these two live radio performances from the Moving Targets available. From what I've figured out the song titles for the WERS, Boston performance on September 9th 1985 are as follows:

    01 Brave Noise (live)
    02 This World (live)

    03 Only Life of Fun (live)
    *note: the lyrics are different from the track released on 'Fall' [1991], but the music is the same.

    04 Through the Door (live)
    05 [title unknown] (live)
    06 Coming Home (live)
    07 The Other Side (live)
    08 Underground (live)
    09 Always Calling (live)
    10 Let Me Know Why (live)

    11 2500 Club (live)
    *note: despite being preannounced as 'Travelling Music', track 11 is definitely '2500 Club' from the album 'Brave Noise' [1989].

    12 Travel Music (live)
    13 MTV (live)
    14 Faith (live)
    15 Less Than Gravity (live)
    16 Almost Certain/Drone (live)
    17 Urban Dub (live)
