Duders! Head over to Aquarium Drunkard NOW to check out a truly stellar Television bootleg (which was actually one of the first things I posted on this blog oh so many Marquee Moons ago). Cleveland, Ohio 1975! The place to be, against every odd imaginable. Verlaine and co. played two nights — the recording over on AD is the second night. As an added bonus to you Doom & Gloomsters, here’s a recording of the first night! Not quite as good a recording, but actually better than I remember. A different setlist, and even the repeats are pretty different from the next show. Totally killer stuff. Just $3 to check in to the Piccadilly Inn!

Another good one from the I Love Total Destruction blog! Live tapes of the original Orange Juice are pretty scarce as far as I know. This one won’t win any awards for fidelity, but it’s plenty listenable, capturing a wonderfully ramshackle OJ in their hometown. Go ahead and take the pleasure with the pain!
