Live Münchner Rocktage 1982

Looking at my last posts, you find some live recordings and here is another one, recorded in May 1982 (I think). The event were the "Münchener Rocktage" (Munich Rock days) with several german New Wave bands. I recorded this from the radio, but on a cheap tape, sound is ok.
Liaisons Dangereuses play their classic "Los ninos del parque", Die Krupps bang on steel and (mainly) synths for "Goldfinger" and "Wahre Arbeit wahrer Lohn".

Peter Hein & Family 5 played in public for the first time. A Latin version of the Fehlfarben classic "Es geht voran" and "Muff Gruff" show him in a angry mood, ranting about how bad Fehlfarben were and how bad the NDW-bands that went to the charts were...
Two songs each by Trio "Yaya", "Los Paul!" and Östro 430 "16!, "Ich bin ganz normal".

Side two of the tape was taken by short sets by bands from Hannover: Der moderne Man "Blaue Matrosen, Der Sandman, Am Baggersee, Gurus und Geheimagenten, Bis ans Ende der Welt, Gib mir den Tod", Mythen in Tüten "Liebe im Funkhaus, Sansibar, Die neue Kollektion" and Bärchen & die Milchbubis "Motorrad, Jung kaputt spart Altersheime, Tagebuch, Ich will nix älter werden, Tiefseefisch, Ich will meinen Spass zurück, Pogo liebt dich".
The last two songs on the Tape were by Abwärts, but you can find their set here .

John Cale live 1983

Hello, I'm back again. Other things to do, some trouble with my internet provider, such were things that kept me from posting.
My first "new" post is a fantastic live performance by the great John Cale from March 7th 1983 in the Markthalle in Hamburg. Just him solo with his guitar and piano, very intense, but also very charming as he was in pretty good mood, joked with the audience and seemed to have a good time himself. Until then I had only heard very little by John Cale, but after this concert I was hooked. I have seen him a few times since then, mostly solo but 2003 he played a free open-air in Oldenburg with a band.

The sound quality is pretty good as it was later broadcasted on NDR 2.

The second post is a performance John Cale gave in the studios of BFBS in Cologne on February 5th 1984 in Alan Bangs' show Nightflight. It's not the complete show, only a few songs, among them also a Jonathan Richman song and "Song to the siren" by This Mortal Coil (played on 33rpm!), but that's what was on the tape.

Tracklists are in the comments!

Looking through my CD archive I found another live recording by John Cale: Fragments of a rainy season. This was released 1992 by Hannibal/Rykodisk. I don't know when and where it was recorded, but there also is a DVD of the same title but with a different tracklist...
The sound quality is perfect. This time I encoded the files with mp3pro at 96 kbps, so don't be worried when you see that rate.
