My PIL bootleg wants list - August 2016




Every now and again I post a request for recordings that I would like for my collection. This list contains bootlegs that I either know exist or have heard exist. Some of the rumours may be incorrect.

 Also I don't pretend to know everything, so you may have a recording that's not listed that I still may need. Please take a look and if you can help me with any please email me pilhead@gmail.com.

All additions are welcome.

I prefer lossless quality but to be honest I will take any recording in any format or quality if its something I don't already have - Thanks for looking.

The London SS - 29th July 2016, Dublin Castle, Camden, London

The London SS is a group founded in March 1975 by drummer Geir Wade, bassist John Brown, guitarist Mick Jones, and guitarist Eunan Brady. In 2012 Brady put together a new lineup, featuring himself along with Jimi McDonald, Taj Sagoo, Michael Kane, and Andi Emm.


Here's a recording I made of their recent gig at Dublin Castle in Camden, where they played along side with Bloody English.








Set list:
Pipeine
Sick
Imitation
King Drag
Why
Stabs
Blow It All Away
Zurich
Star
Sellout
Jet Boy






The band are extremely entertaining and well worth seeing if you get the chance, with Jimi being very partial to jumping off the stage, running around the crowd and singing on top of tables and the bar.






DISCLAIMER: THE LONDON SS neither support nor condone nazism, neo-nazism, fascism, racism, sexism, bullying, homophobia or random acts of twatism.

Bloody English - 29th July 2016 - Dublin Castle, Camden, London

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend an event that was a celebration of all things Indie with Kathy Di Tondo .


One of the bands playing was a group of young lads who epitomise the Indie spirit - they are called Bloody English. No big money backing. Doing it on their own and for the love of it. I recorded the gig and I'm sharing it with you today.




It really was a great performance and I hope you enjoy the recording.

They have great energy and a passion for what they do....and they have a sense of humour too.









The recording is straight from my master and apart from being track separated its exactly as was played. It comes with cd artwork which I created myself. I urge everyone to check them out if you get the chance, you wont be disappointed.










Thanks to Sean and Larry from the band for allowing me to share this recording with their full consent. Support the artist. See them live - you'll love them

PIL - 10th May 1980, South Of Market Cultural Centre, San Francisco, USA


For some reason this is the only bootleg I have from 1980 that I haven't previously posted - so here it is for you.

This is a FLAC rip from a cd-r I got in a trade many years ago. I hope you enjoy it.
