  • LDB Vintage Series #082 Hi there! After closing both my Master and Special series I took a break from seeding, enjoying life and most of all preparing for a new series! This is not going to be as frequent as my previous ones, I'll be seeding shows from time to time so don't expect massive volumes here. Why a "vintage" series? Because music in the 70's and 80's was really different, so special with "that" kind of sound which you don't find anymore. That was the era of real music without the internet, of long tours and enjoyable live shows spanning from metal to new wave, progressive, jazz, fusion, pop. So many bands were born and disappeared during those two decades. I am then celebrating the 70's and the 80's and their unmistakeable sound in this LDB Vintage Series. You will find many bands I have never seeded in the past but that I still enjoy listening to. Most of these come from low generation tapes that were traded TWELFTH NIGHT London, Marquee July 16, 1983 01.The Ceiling Speaks 02.Introduction / We Are Sane 03.Deep In The Heartland 04.The Collector 05.Love Song 06.Human Being 07.The Poet Sniffs A Flower 08.Sequences 09.Art And Illusion 10.East Of Eden 11.Aspidentropy TT 92:29 Lineage: Unknown recording device > n generation tape > Aiwa Tape Deck AD-WX828 > Audiophile 2496 Soundblaster > HD > SoundForge 7.0 > CD Wave > FLAC Frontend (level 6) Rick Battersby (keyboards) Brian Devoil (drums) Clive Mitten (bass) Andy Revell (guitar) Geoff Mann (vocals) This will be a mini-series of shows from some famous and more obscure bands from the "new wave of progressive rock", also called "new prog". This came from the early 80's from bands that took as a model the progressive rock movement of the 1970's in the likes of Genesis, Jethro Tull, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, VDGG and many more. These bands had a complete rejection towards punk rock but were somehow influenced by the upcoming new wave movement with the advent of new technologies and visual look which seemed to come together very well with "art rock" movement of the 70's. For many of them, symphonic rock was the reference (Genesis) with lots of keyboards and mellotrons, but others were more influenced by New Wave, others were more metal-oriented. You will hear some of them in this series: Marillion IQ Pendragon Pallas Twelfth Night Solstice Quasar and a few others What to say about 12th Night. Possibly the most inspired band of the whole new-prog movement. Mixing progressive, rock, new wave in a great result. This band from Reading started as a 4-piece performing instrumental songs, till Geoff Mann came in at the beginning of 1982. The result was stunning. Only one album was released, the seminal Fact And Fiction and a live album (the incredible Live and Let Live) recorded at the Marquee and released when Geoff had already left the band. This recording captures the band at the Marquee just a few months before recording the live album. Setlist is stellar, including the favourite Sequences, the (then) unreleased monster piece The Collector and the opener (then equally unreleased) The Ceiling Speaks. A great recording for a great performance ldb
