Sadly no DVD and the cover's not too great either. :roll:
But looking forward to hearing it.


Apologies if this has been mentioned before but why isn't Everlone on the track list? :?
It was played if I remember rightly.

Interesting thing, that.....

On Amazon.de (German version) track 8 is listed as Everlone.

On amazon.co.uk. song 8 is Everyone (!!!) and both versions have 15 tracks

So I think it will be there...

I was in a record shop today, having completely forgotten about this, to buy James Dean Bradfield's record (which is utterly brilliant). So anyhow, saw this too and bought it.

Interesting, as someone that was there - for those of you who weren't, you can now hear (for instance) how badly timed the fireworks were in "I Wanna Go..."

But the thing about it is that Ginger sounds really angry on it and that makes it a top recording. "...Strikes Back" was a rock record and this one's a punk record. Shame Ginger's not going to get any money for it but I can't really recommend that anyone doesn't buy it because it's bloody good.

Marks off for the sleevenotes though. An anonymous someone has written a bit of a potted history and said how music is never as interesting when everything goes smoothly. Might possibly true in the case of The Wildhearts but I don't for one second think Ginger wouldn't have preferred NOT to have the splits, the drug problems and all that get in the way of the music. It's these notes that make it obvious it's not an 'official' release - they should have left them off and just used loads of pictures.

So yeah, buy it already. (Sorry Ginger)

Just listening to my copy now, its much more raw than Strike Back, but thats not a bad thing. Geordie in Wonderland gave me goosebumps and the memories have all come flooding back. Hope this DVD comes out!

Long time no post. Have listened to the CD a couple of times now and I have to say I've heard better bootlegs both in terms of sound quality and performance. However, it's great to have something with which to remember what for me was a briiliant weekend (despite the cold etc.). The crowd singing Geordie was indeed a moment to saviour.

I'll say. The vocals are abysmal. Ginger's are pretty buried, but the harmonies are mostly non-existant.

And (slipping into muso-mode) considering the bass drum mic they were using, they've managed to rather effectively kill all the punch. :?

Welcome back Ben. :)

Cheers matey. Long time no see. (I failed to make any dates on the last acoustic tour due to moving flats and been busy with my new band - poor excuses I know!)

Yes, the drum mix appears to consist almost entirely of cymbals and overall the mix is very muddy, even for a live recording. And as for those pyros...

Not really, depends if yer choons are any good? :wink: There was a distinct lack of familiar (to me, anyway) faces at the wolvo gig, although you did miss the recording of the next official bootleg (and a fantastic cover of A-Ha's Take on me by Chris Catalyst).

Yeah, the intro to Stormy... doesn't come across quite as impressively on the CD... :roll:

I'd say so but then I would wouldn't I? ;) We're recording in a few weeks so you'll be able to make up your own mind soon.

Listening in a baking car you do get the same heat rush as with those flame throwers though ;)

Sounds good to me, although one track, I forget which, sounded like it was from a jumping record. Shit packaging! Terible cover, and criminal that Ginger gets nowt for his hard work.

I sat back and closed my eyes when Geordie came on, I could see it all replaying in my head, fucking brilliant.

It's also the first live CD I've ever been on.

It's probably the last two tracks, where Cj's guitar keeps cutting out and nobody seems to be doing anything about it... Odd that he's turned right up for the dodgy bit, seeing as he's so buried in the mix for the rest of it you can hardly hear him . :roll:

Me too (I think - they didn't use and of the Wolvo gig on ...Strike Back... apparently we weren't rockin' enough :P ).

This disc is great. I love it's unpolishedness. There are many highlights, the Vanilla Radio being one of them. Can anyone remember the name of that pub down the hill from the Castle?
