Super Furry Animals live at Cardiff International Arena 1999

This is a bootleg of a Super Furry Animals gig recorded by Radio 1 for Lamacq Live just before Christmas in 1999. As it is recorded onto cassette from FM radio like what we had to do in those days, it is occasionally a bit crackly and is not the full set played that night - the Beeb usually only broadcast choice parts of the event unless it was completely live. Because of the year the setlist is pretty Guerrilla-heavy - or rather, it includes tracks off the album that they've not played live much since, including The Turning Tide and The Door To This House Remains Open. My recording misses the first couple of bars too...sorry about that.

You can also see (read: hear, with a nice picture from space to accompany it) a recently-added Peel session and interview with John by the band here on YouTube from around the time of Fuzzy Logic, as added by someone called stepintothegalaxy. Lovely.

Eat The Beatles on Another Nice Mess

A few months ago, during the modest promotional run for Two Of The Beatles Have Died, i was fortunate enough to compile a mix for the superlative Another Nice Mess radio show on DFM Radio hosted by Marcelle Van Hoof in Amsterdam. Considering it's a show that i've been a huge fan of for over five years now i felt honoured, frankly, and incredibly grateful that Marcelle played so many songs from the compilation. Considering there's supposedly a renewed wave of Beatlemania this week - and they're all songs relating somehow to The Beatles, you see - i thought it appropriate to upload the set here.
