**UPDATE February 2023**
AFOS' excellent eponymously titled debut album has just been remastered and re-released, with a whole shedload of extras, INCLUDING the first official release of this radio session, so as of now, I've removed the link to my version.**
Live and Loud! Radio is an occasional series of free downloads, which started in January 2017. Radio sessions that never got an official release, sympathetically repaired and remastered and then released onto the internet, all for free.
No theme tune, no intro from me - just the original session, repaired and remastered and available in a downloadable zip file containing each separate track.
Live and Loud! Radio Prog 7 - A Flock Of Seagulls - John Peel Session Broadcast 12 May 1981
1. Talking (It's Not Me Talking)
2. Messages From The Rings Of Saturn
3. I Ran
Recorded before the release of their first single and almost a year before the release of their first album, this features 4 tracks, 2 of which bear their longer, original titles.
Sourced from MP3 files, I fixed 1 or 2 dropout faults in the recording, some clicks, plus having to use a 2nd source to fix 1 small section which faded out early (see if you can tell where). After that, I applied 30 band EQ to clear up the flat and slightly muddy sound. Mainly a little bottom end, some reduction of harsh mids where appropriate and boosting a little top end when that was lacking. This allows the drums and bass to breathe a bit, the guitar to shimmer in it's own space and the vocals to be clearer.

Hi Tomas, thanks for your comments. No ultravox radio sessions exist with Midge, as far as I know. There might well be another ultravox live show in the next few months. Human League Dare era...yes, I hope to be able to do one of these too. So stay tuned!Delete
Heaven 17 didn't play live in the early 1980s as far as I know - back then they were studio only! So no gigs are available, unfortunately!
