I (and probably Nick too) am still recovering after one of the greatest events ever. Only got to bed at 5 a.m. after the gig due to the wicked DJ sets by Tony Wilson / Shaun Ryder / Peter Hook. Then had to get up at 9 a.m. to catch flight... Report and images to follow.

That has to be THE set to end ALL sets

I don't think Ive heard them play Fat Shadow, San Francisco, Lift or Timebomb before although I may be mistaken.

I love the heavy mix of lift, that crunchy groaning sample makes the track stand out.

I don't think I'll ever forgive myself for not going, as punishment Im going to sell all my 808 records on Ebay :(

Yeah Right!! :wink:

i'll gladly advertise the real AA!

Never heard of Fat Shadow Live

San Fransisco was played at GMex 91

Lift (heavy) was played at Cities In The Park 91

and i think Timebomb was played on Christmas Madness Tour Dec 92

loved the new track Eastern Standard, always good to hear something we don't know, hopefully we'll get to hear it soon!

PS. Markus, when you're updating the discussion pages to include all the lucky people who went to Turin. Could you add the Tool-Shed and 808 DJ's gigs in Belfast to mine.

The VERY unofficial Turin gig report :

July 2nd 2005 was a day when the world joined together to raise awareness of Poverty in Africa. Music was the central forum for spreading this message and concerts throughout the world ringed out the demands of the people in such a way as to be heard by all G8 world leaders.

LIVE 8 was the official platform to preach this movement, yet on a stage in downtown Turin it was LIVE 808 who turned up the volume on the agenda and increased the bass on the planet to new levels. Should George Bush have been resting soundly the vibrations from Italy must have plagued him “The American system is failing to deal with the real threats to life.”

On Wednesday we will know if the G8 listened, how could they fail not to, and if they did music and democracy played a part in instilling change for the good of humanity.

It's a shame it wasn't recorded so we can all share in the delight that is 808. Or was it?????? We need more on the live page.

Postby Ancodia » 05 Jul 2005 13:06

Yeah maybe if was recorded we may get to hear the odd song when Andy and Daz put together a radio show for Glastonbury in 2017! :wink:

I saw a few bootleggers, I hope it will surface somewhere on the net, certainly the NewOrder set will, so maybe 808 too. I think Massey recorded it too, so maybe he'll be feeling generous after he's got the Japan & France gigs over with?

Yes ,twas a strange weekend , Good to see the crew out in force in far flung lands...Hope you enjoyed the set not shure it all worked might drop some oldies out for Japan..Timebomb was a bit dodge ,and my sax playing was a bit rusty .. Still I thought New Order were on form ,really enjoyed their set.
Did nt see you all at the aftershow thing in town apart from AA Pete ,who i was yelling at as he passed in the throng outside..Its Hard to get a Taxi in Turin isnt it
Top icecream though and entertaining weekend traveling with Mr Wilson and Ryder.
No we didnt record ,we ll try and do Japan..theres just to much to think about when its all going off at things like that..It will probably be best to record Montpellier when its played in a bit..though its all random as to what equipment you get..
I lost my equipment on BA s baggage system ,but its just come back this morning ..huge relief!! (Thats why we hire most of it)

i thought i heard someone call Pete, but i'm used to bev kev nowadays, lol.

sorry that i didn't spot you, we were desperate for the sangia at the spanish MADRID bar, even shaun ryder spotted me and pointed while we were in the nice and sweaty club (what the hell was tony playing - jump jump cds)! even Bez spotted me at Brixton, he copied my hand actions! won't say what they were!

i agree Timebomb was the weakest track in the set, went a bit off key during it!

what happened to Fajita?

so was Eastern Standard an unrelease number from Outpost?

weather was Scorchio!
