Very good sound, crowd is going bananas sometimes, you'll listen it on the recording from time to time. Huge Thanks to Ziggy for sending it to me for sharing on the blog.

The Young Gods playing in a small packed venue in Lisboa presenting a few songs that would be released on Second Nature (03, 04, 06, 08 and 11). I was there and remember it being a good intense show. It was the first show i attended with Bernard on drums. The songs sounded good but he did not make me forget Üse (he was a hell of a drummer) on this gig.

RE-UPLOAD: Chris & Cosey - Paard Van Troje, Den Haag, The Netherlands - xx.xx.1986 (Flac)

Excellent FM broadcast. Thanks to FREDHEADSET for sharing this recording. Recorded and broadcasted by VPRO Radio for the program Spleen.

Exact date unknown but probably June 1986

Chris & Cosey are a band formed in 1981, consisting of partners Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti, both previously members of industrial music pioneers Throbbing Gristle.

When Throbbing Gristle broke up in 1981, Carter and Tutti signed with Rough Trade Records and began recording as Chris & Cosey. They recorded four albums for the label using electronics, sampling, Cosey's vocals and cornet playing. In 1983, they formed their own independent record label Creative Technology Institute (aka CTI) to release more experimental works and collaborations. The first CTI projects, Elemental 7 and European Rendezvous, were released through Cabaret Voltaire's DoubleVision label.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the duo worked with a number of independent labels such as Nettwerk (Canada), Play It Again Sam (Belgium), Staalplaat (Netherlands), and Wax Trax! (USA), and World Serpent Distribution (UK). In 1992, for artistic and health reasons, the duo stopped touring and concentrated on studio work. They returned to performing live in 1998, documented on the Union album.

They have collaborated with such artists as Monte Cazazza, Coil, Current 93, John Duncan, Erasure, Eurythmics, Boyd Rice, and Robert Wyatt. Their 1988 Core album is a collection of such collaborations.

Line up

Cosey Fanni Tutti - vocals, keyboards, electronics, trumpet
Chris Carter - keyboards, keyboards, electronics

From this same gig, the song "Talk To Me" ended up as a track on the 1987 Belgian live LP "Action".
