This is taken from the world tour which took up much of 1981, which followed on the back of the successful release of the "Kings of The Wild Frontier" album in the Autumn of 1980. I think this was also the soundtrack to a long deleted VHS video of the gig. It still needed a bit of work to bring out the sound quality but really responded well to some studio magic.
Its a great record of the Ants live, driven by the powerhouse of 2 drummers, and complete with screaming audience!
Ignore the links given on the audio at the end of the show, which are long out of date - as you know you can see a list of all shows that are available, right here on this website.
Stand and Deliver
Don't Be Square (Be There)

A band much beloved by my ex-wife & which now, with the pasage of time, nostalgically, I grudgingly admit to not minding at all.ReplyDelete
Amazing recordings - thanksReplyDelete
Any Psychedelic Furs ?
I don't have any currently but I'll add it to the list of ones to look for.Delete
Should be something going up in the next month or 2, yep!Delete
Interested in where this is sourced. It is of course October 1981 8th or 15th (2 Tokyo shows) and was released on VHS. Confusingly the official release claimed that 'Antmusic' was first but it wasn't. 'Stand and deliver' and 'Antmusic' for 1st and 3rd the official release claimed the opposite. I took this from VHS transfered to Minidisc then CD myself about 1998!ReplyDelete
Long time ago now but I think the files I found online were an audio transfer from the original VHS (or a copy of it). Thanks for listening!Delete
Graet Many thanksReplyDelete
