You crazy Brits! I had to do a little research into what it meant to be a Geordie...
I can't understand either of them. Or is it neither of them. :disshame:
It's a tough accent to understand! I've always found it fascinating that we all speak the same language - yet there are dialects that sound foreign to us.

Thanks for the new live set, by the way. Can't wait to get home and check it out!! Crazy to think the Clash once played in Akron - which might be the Rubber Capital of the World - but is still a pretty small town.
Even English people have trouble understanding it, you're not alone...

I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

I hope you realise Marky's playing with dynamite...

This one was kindly uploaded for me from our friend sonnyburnit. It was available on Dime-a-Dozen and it's a soundboard live matrix with part of the last track "1999" coming from an alternate audience source. I've noticed also on the "Some BAD" page that Tappy has also uploaded this show although I don't know if it's the soundboard or audience version or this matrix.

Anyhow I've worked my ususal touch and it's a great show with really great sound.

Once again Marky, and I almost missed the Akron posting, so thanks for that too.

Santa Cruz is a great show, You've made it just a little bit better! I've never heard the straight soundboard recording. I actually like those dry soundboard recordings

Listening carefully to Akron's concert (17-8-82) on Straight To Hell, there are percussion effects, I do not remember hearing them on othes versions in
dates of the same period. Can you explain the origin? :?:

Don't really know mate to be honest. But I expect it's a use of echo and reverb on Terry's drums. Nothing to do with me or any mix I did. The only other thing I can think of is maybe someone else is also playing a set of toms.

Matedog is the forums best guy to ask about drums.

I saw The Clash in Edinburgh, and Strummer seemed to have a bottle - being Scottish I hope it was Irn Bru - wrapped in a towel, and thumped the bass drum with it. This was the re-scheduled gig after his Paris marathon and Terry was the drummer. A snake dancer as the support act was a nice act!

Yep the same trick he used when they recorded the studio version only Topper claims it to be an R. Whites Lemonade bottle. Which always made me smile as it was Costello and his Dad singing on the advert back in the day.

B.A.D. - Sheffield Leadmill, Sheffield, UK. 07-10-84 [3].jpgSo until we can find out a definite answer to when the first gig took place. Best have another remaster. The sound of this one is really good.

Sheffield Leadmill, Sheffield, UK. 1st October 1984.

Having just caught up on this enormous thread (and before I go on thanks for all the awesome time and effort that has gone into these remasters) can I just confirm that I saw BAD at Sheffield Leadmill on 7 October 1984 (supporting the Alarm) and indeed recorded the show myself....and I still have my master cassette in one of my boxes. Not exactly sure whether circulating versions derive from my recording or not. But it was always my understanding that this Sheffield gig was preceded only by a show the previous night in Manchester (probably the International). I am just downloading from the link provided to have a listen to a show I haven't heard for quite a lot of years!

23.11 The Leadmill, Sheffield
24.11 The Warehouse, Leeds

Above from Esmark's site. Looks like you might have the 1985 show recorded, not the 1984 one?

There is absolutely no doubt about it. The BAD gig was 7 October 1984 and I heard on the night that they had played their first ever gig the night before in Manchester. It was billed as a secret gig although the local Sheffield paper (the Star) ran a brief story in its Saturday entertainment guide tipping people off that Mick Jones new band was going to turn up and support the Alarm on the Sunday night. Even on the night it was not very clear what the name of the band was although people were suggesting BAD without knowing what it stood for, if anything. That date cannot be wrong - I started going to gigs in 1977 and have been to over 1,000, and I have a book listing every single band I have seen including supports by date and venue. So whatever records exist online I know the date is correct as I wrote it on my master cassette and in my book.
