    There was an fb post regarding the Flamin' Groovies version of "Teenage Head" and it made me go back to Robert Gotobed's short stint as vocalist with The Snakes. I noticed "Lights Out" was the only one of the four Snakes songs unavailable on youtube - so I put it there myself - and in the comments are links to the previous youtube vids if the other three Snakes tunes. None self- penned - Light's Out (Dr Feelgood), Teenage Head & Have You Seen My Baby (Flamin' Groovies) and Little Queenie (Chuck Berry). Hope ya likes it if you haven't heard it before.....

    Thanks for this. I've put together CDRs that compile odds and ends of solo material from all Wire members. Didn't really want to sprint the €15.00 for this one and only track missing from my otherwise complete Robert Gotobed/Grey compilation.

    Just "whispered" you Specotron
  4.  
    leefact25:

    I have many of tracks I have assembled from YouTube where I could not find the track in question from any other source. For example, if I could purchase a guest vocal appearance by Graham Lewis from an album that had the one track he was on, I would download that track from Amazon (or elsewhere). I have also purchased original source material (CDs or vinyl) where available at a reasonable prices. All of The Snakes tracks came from YouTube however. So far, I have assembled a 6CD set of 1970s Wire demos, 4 CDs of Graham Lewis loose tracks, 4 for Bruce Gilbert and 2 for Colin Newman and 1 for AC Marias.

    Meanwhile, nobody has ever whispered to me before and I cannot figure out where to pick that up as it is not obvious. Please let me know where to find it and I will. Thank you!
  5.  
    Stupid me, just figured it out.
  6.  
    4 CDs of loose tracks by Graham sounds like a lot. You mean really loose tracks and not included in the various He Said, HALO, Hox etc. ? Do you have a list of the tracks ?
  7.  
    biccio: I should have defined 'loose tracks' ...by that I mean, everything that does not appear on full-length CDs (i.e.: vinyl b-sides, various artist compilations, Graham guest vocals on one track, etc. One one CD, I simply assembled all of the early He Said singles together, not observing my own rules since a few did appear on the CD albums. Track listing:

    Amazing how these CDs play like their own little solo albums, especially the 4th and most recent material. The others I mentioned earlier in the thread are along these lines.
  8.  
    thanks. i don't know most of the the songs in CD 1 and half the songs in CD 4.

    there was one more song in the radio session with teho teardo, i forgot the name of. i heard it when the session was broadcasted but could never find it afterwards.
  9.  
    this should be published as a 4xCD box :)
  10.  
    '" there was one more song in the radio session with teho teardo, i forgot the name of. i heard it when the session was broadcasted but could never find it afterwards. "

    I think the track was called ' Rank '
  11.  
    Yes. Rank, that was it.
  12.  
    Specotron - without wishing to put you to enormous trouble, would you be willing to list the tracks from the other CDs you've compiled. The Lewis set sounds fascinating.

    * means it came from Behind The Curtain... assembled chronologically and following Neate's book with regards to ordering the tracks in hopes he did so according to the original playlists on the days they were recorded.

    I also did two Dome boxed sets, totaling 11 CDs altogether, but with the exception of Cyrus' Paradiso Dime uploads a couple of odds and ends, I went through the trouble of doing this in order to have their complete output in a logical chronological order. Not going to list all of the tracks, but to give an idea, ONE is Dome 1 & Like This For Ages. TWO is Dome 2 and 3.R.4. THREE is the Peel Sessions, Ends With The Sea 7" and Dome 3... so forth and so on.

  19.  
    biccio:
    Of all of the above, the Graham Lewis and Bruce Gilbert compilations are the most useful and contain the rarest and oddest of tracks. For the Graham Lewis, the first disc is all sound art. Think Dome only less accessible in most cases. I didn't credit the sources for that post, so here it is again:

    01 Threw Her Gewgaw [from Mesmer Variations : 10 minutes of loud noise]
    02 Bing Before Bang [from A Fault In The Nothing : 2 minutes of loud noise]

    04 a series of living presences [with The Hafler Trio 7" : more of the same]
    05 I Saved M.I.T. (Yes I Did) [from the VA 2CD set, Decay]
    06 Fiat [from Touch Ringtones : 6 seconds long!]
    07 Kanuanser [from Touch Ringtones : 5 seconds]
    08 Ker-Ring! (for use with the Nokia vibrating phone only) [from Touch Ringtones : 4 seconds]
    09 Doob (from Touch Ringtones : 4 seconds)
    10 A Strong Candidate For Isolation [from RL, Rune Linblad, Swedish sound artist : 10 minute looping melody]
    11 Untitled [from Autistisk Kilskrift (Autistic Cuneiform) : Swedish book with VA CD including this 5+ minute Graham Lewis spoken word piece (in English)]
    12 Herman The Merman Explores The Foreshore [from Echoes From The Foreshore, another Swedish compilation; Graham's piece is 20 minutes; think Dome]

    TWO [all track sources are singles and one from The Shivering Man]

    THREE [all 27/11 tracks]
    01 Bonjour Bonjour! [from Lagrimas De Miedo No 12 Zenon]
    02 Were Ever [from Silver Monk Time]
    03 Oh, How To Do Now? [from the orange 27/11 7"]
    04 Show Me Now [from the orange 27/11 7"]

    07 Hallowed Ground [from Erasure-esque EP]
    08 Profession [with Adjective; Graham produced and provided minimal vocals]
    09 Ballrooms [from I'm Normal, My Heart Still Works]
    10 The Best Things Are Left Unspoken [from Mettle]
    11 Iron Horse [from Anatomy Of A Tear]
    12 Little Lost Star [with Teho Teardo. from YouTube]
    13 Goodbye Good Friend [with Teho Teardo, from YouTube]
