NO: 03 JAN 81 Tatton Community Centre - Chorley


Setlist:

Procession, Dreams Never End, Truth, Mesh, The Him, Cries And Whispers, Ceremony, Senses

(playlist from Fractured/Image)

Sound on long-circulating version is decent, but probably not
low-gen.

In March 2007, Duncan seeded his upgraded master clone to DIME.
And if you can believe it, there's another master clone in existence
which GaoBest received from a friend of the band.

BS:  "Hi."

Bernard makes some noises before Procession.

Duncan's version fades in, so this is not heard on his version.

A fairly involved guitar solo here.

At about 1:05 somebody sounds like they're saying 'sorry'.

Lady can be heard giggling a bit on some of the audience
versions.  Duncan's version features the following
conversation.

punter:  "Is that a new one or a new one"

lady:  "An old one"

taper (I think):  "Oh, fucking good then."

punter:  "I only know a few, c'mon."

Brief pause on the GaoBest version.

Dreams Never End

GaoBest version gets inadvertently paused during the intro.

BS:  "Can I have some guitar through the foldback, please?"
[a few more words muttered which I can't make out]

Hooky calls for "guitar" at 1:45.

More conversion on the Duncan version, with the girl saying
"I've never really been into Joy Division."

Truth

Bit of a slow intro there.

Taper says "Just move this back a little bit."

Mesh

Hooky does his usual bit.  1:21, 1:26, 1:28-1:31,
and 1:51-1:55 have dropouts, at least on my copy.
But not on Duncan's.

BS:  "We'd like to apologize for the feedback...
What was I thinking?  Is it all right?"

The Him

Somebody yells out "Get it right" at the start.

Sound starts garbling up between 1:20-1:30 on my old copy,
but not on Duncan's.

Very harsh guitars suggesting the mix was a bit of a problem.

The band tune up between this song and the next.

Cries And Whispers

Bernard sings this.

lyric:  "Once, out of reach, we never speak, we never see"

Some person (higher pitched reedy male voice) says something
which I can't make out.

BS:  "What?"

Same person: "You seem a little bit down to me.  [couple more
words I can't make out]"  Could also be "of that one" instead
of "a bit down", or something else entirely, don't know.

Ceremony

BS:  "Anybody got anything to say?  Or are you just going to
[can't make out the rest]..."

The set closes off with a nice, boingy Senses.
