Welcome - About Live and Loud!

Live and Loud! began as a fortnightly internet radio show taking old unreleased live concert recordings I could find and working to repair and improve them - fixing tape hiss, noise, tape drop out, clicks, speed variations, defects - before improving the sound quality by EQing the sound to bring out the instruments as clearly as possible. These are now made directly available to download for free to reach as many fans of the music as possible.

Depending on the quality of the original recording, these can often be made to sound almost like commercial recordings - but of course I can't guarantee that for every show. What I can guarantee is it will sound far better than the original files available which have been floating around the internet and on bootleg recordings for many years.

Almost all are either "soundboard" recordings taken directly from the mixing desk used at the gig on the night - or old FM radio recordings. A few gigs, if they are of special historical importance, make an appearance even if they were recorded from the audience.

Do your ears a favour and listen on headphones or good speakers to get most benefit - laptop speakers will always sound pretty poor by comparison.

All shows still available are listed, including a link to download the remastered show for free.

These are great fun to listen to but DO NOT replace original releases - support these artists and buy their music.
There is nothing here you can go and buy in a regular record store here. If a gig is made available as a regular release, then it will be removed.

Show 49: Siouxsie and The Banshees - Janus Landing, St Petersburg, Florida - 22 August 1987


After the release of their 8th album, Through The Looking Glass, the Banshees went on tour to the USA and Canada. This gig is the penultimate gig from that tour.

Its a remastered soundboard recording of the full gig and includes tracks from right through their career to that point.

This is stored on mixcloud HERE, where it can be streamed at any time, and there's also now a download link HERE so you can keep a copy (just click on where it says download - nice and easy!).
