*Sex Pistols 1976-06-04 Manchester Lesser Free Trade Hall Manchester, Eng.

JUNE 4, 1976

Taper: peyotero

CONTRAST CLAUSE: This is a compilation of 3 sources, edited together on November 2012 (and redone in September 2013), to make the complete gig:

1. Silver CD > Wav > Flac > torrent (EAC, Trader's Little Helper, U-torrent)> Declipped, EQ, Dehissed > WAV > FLAC (Best quality from tracks 01-12, but incomplete, missing the start of track 01)
2. "Alternate version from one Mark B which he got back in June/July 1989.  This is a tape source, no LP crackles at all"> FLAC > EQ > WAV > FLAC (thanks to lammah) (Good quality, has the beginning of track 01 and the last tracks (13-14) with better quality than source 1)
3. Cassette traded in c.1989.  Nth gen cassette copy of a very scratched bootleg vinyl > wav (no processing) > CDWave(cut on sector boundaries) > flac(6) > Tried to denoise and declick this source > WAV (Thanks to Egg_Crisis) (Average quality, has the complete intro of the concert(track 01)) Torrent by starboy, comes from another incomplete version of the show.

01.Did You No Wrong (mix of 3 (concert intro), 2 (beginning of the song) and 1 (best quality but cut))
02.No Lip (source 1)
03.Seventeen (source 1)
04.(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone (source 1)
05.New York (source 1)
06.Whatcha Gonna Do About It (source 1)
07.Submission (source 1)
08.Satellite (source 1)
09.No Feelings (source 1)
10.No Fun (source 1)
11.Substitute (source 1)
12.Pretty Vacant (source 1; encore cheering from source 2)
13.Problems (source 2)
14.No Fun (mix of 2 (cut) and 1; source 1 at this song is quite slow, so I used Adobe Audition's stretch at 93%, if I do remember correctly, for the very end of this track)

You can find some great photos of the gig here:

Thanks so much to the DIME users peyotero, lammah, Egg_Crisis and starboy for making this possible!

Other versions of the gig not used on this:

Lineage: Marantz MF1 c60 cassette (physical copy from Šumnij_Smagsprøve) > SONY TC-WE435 >
M-AUDIO 24/96 audiocard > PC > Adobe Soundbooth 1.0 > WAV 16/44 > Audacity (splitting) >
TLH > FLAC Level 8 (SB Aligning + Test encoded files) ~ 16/44,1kHz

Quite similar to version 2 (Substitute cut, No fun#2 complete), but with bad quality.

Manchester Arndale Market Bootleg Stall> Technics RS-T22 (azimuth adjusted)> WaveLab (track splits)> TLH (Flac 8)

If I remember correctly, this sounds similar to I Swear I Was There, but the intro to track 1 fades up differently and has a little bit more noise.



I was told by MarkB that his copy originated from a trader named Dave Lees (2 generations up), wouldn't think the name means anything to anybody here besides craigie*...and I bet his copy is at least two generations or more removed from the circulating 2nd gen the taper credits all extant copies being sourced from.


Sex Pistols

Lesser Free Trade Hall, Manchester, UK, 1976.06.04 (4th June)

Cassette traded in c.1989.  Nth gen cassette copy of a very scratched bootleg vinyl > wav (no processing) > CDWave(cut on sector boundaries) > flac(6)

You can get rid of the hiss quite nicely using Adobe Audition's hiss reduction (standard) setting, however I didn't like the way it caused a sortof after-echo type sound with all the vinyl clicks so I left it unprocessed.  It'd have probably been fine to dehiss if it hadn't been for all the vinyl clicks.

Tracklist: [extra bits not present in starboy's torrent indicated in square brackets]

[45 seconds of audience sounds and an extra 10 seconds of Did You No Wrong.  There wasn't that much missing after all]
01 Did You No Wrong
02 No Lip
03 Seventeen
04 (I'm Not Your) Stepping Stone
05 New York (Looking For A Kiss)
06 Whatcha Gonna Do About It?

(tracks 7-10 missing)

11 Substitute (1st 10 seconds missing, fades in)
12 Pretty Vacant
[13a encore break 1 = 1min27sec of audience sounds]
13b Problems
[14a Encore break 2 = 2min51 of audience sounds]
[14b No Fun]


I cut it in the same places as starboy's torrent so you only need to download tracks 1, 13a, 14a & 14b & just slot them into the correct places.  Only download the other tracks if you're an obsessive completist!


Who was there?

 Howard Devoto (Buzzcocks, Magazine)
 Pete Shelley (Buzzcocks)
 Steve Diggle (Buzzcocks)
 Morrissey (The Smiths)
 Bernard Sumner (Joy Division)
 Peter Hook (Joy Division)
 Martin Hannett (record producer for Factory records)
 Mark E. Smith (lead singer of The Fall)
 Tony Wilson (one of the founders of Factory Records, creator of So It Goes TV program)

Some Bernard Sumner (Joy Division) memories about the gig.

Full interview:

Was he (Ian Curtis) at the Pistols gig at the Lesser Free Trade Hall?

I don’t know. I didn’t know him at that point, this gig where we met him was after that one. I was at the first one.

Did you like it?

Malcolm McLaren was on the ticket office at that one… Yeah, I recorded that gig, but it turned out so distorted that it was unlistenable. I did like it, yeah. I didn’t think they were good, I thought they were bad, but that’s why I liked it. I thought they destroyed the myth of being a pop star, or of a musician being some kind of god that you had to worship. In fact a friend who was with me said, Jesus, you could play guitar as good as that.

Who did you go with?

I went with Hooky and Terry, our roadie. Looks like George Formby on an E. Terry is a bit of an odd-looking chap, as you can agree from the photograph, he’s into all these oddball groups like. He’d read somewhere about the Sex Pistols having a fight onstage and he dragged us down to see them.

There were two shows on this date, so tracks 1 - 4 are from the first and tracks 5 - 8 are from the second show, probably.

Other sources note that "Spoonful" is from the second set - no definitive answers for this one! (thanks to RW for info on this).

"Lawdy Mama" is titled "Big Mama Blues" on the CD jacket.

Original radio show broadcast vinyl>Technics SL21000 deck, Stanton 500 cartridge>JVC AZ-V4 amplifier>
Sound Blaster Live Line In (sorry I will upgrade one day)
Recorded at 16 bit, 96 000 Hz using Sound Forge 6.>SHN

Timing was a little out so file was adjusted to correct time/pitch.
Files were resampled to 44 100 Hz for CD compatibility and split in CD wav.

No other form of sound adjustment has been made.
The disc is over 20 years old and there were a couple of clicks (one big one in track 2) and a little surface noise during the quieter songs.

This show has been widely bootlegged and few people seem to know that it was originally distributed as a broadcast vinyl to college radio stations and the like.
I seem to recall reading at some point (if anyone knows where I might have read this please let me know as I have forgotten)
that this disc was pressed in larger numbers than most radio show discs and that a good number were used for promotion.
I won´t say where mine came from, or what I paid for it. But it is an original, not one of the many bootlegs that were pressed.
It has long been one of the unattainable U2 items I never thought I would get to own.

I have included a picture of the disc in the set of files.

The best CD bootleg out there of this show is the Swinging Pig release "Another Time another Place".
I compared my copy of that CD with these files and noticed a couple of discrepancies.
This suggests to me that the sound had been digitally adjusted and that disc noise has probably been removed in mastering.
At the quiet parts I could even hear some hiss, which suggested that that CD may even come from a (Very low gen) cassette source, and not the vinyl one I initially believed.
The sound levels are very different too. The vinyl version has a more shrill-sounding top-end and the cymbal sounds are very prevalent, more so than on the CD release.

Ultimately it is a question of taste whether you prefer this one or the other one. But you could always clean it up yourself.
Tracks 4,5,7,9,11,12,13,14 have all been released as b-sides, tracks 9 and 12 on CD even... But most are not available now.

Geetarz Comments:

This may be - in terms of the number of different releases - the most-circulated Clapton recording among collectors.  This is with good reason, as it's a good show!

This and the Santa Monica show from the next night (funny how that one has never surfaced) were recorded, and portions of this performance broadcast on the syndicated "King Biscuit Flower Hour" broadcast in 1978.

Over the years many incomplete versions of this performance were traded among collectors, and then among the first Clapton ROIO released on vinyl, then on some of the very first Clapton CD ROIO releases, including:

American Tour '78 (Swingin' Pig)
Live in Santa Monica 1978 (Super Golden Radio Shows)
Snowhead (Musichien)
Layla (Oil Well)
Layla (On Stage)

Later, the complete source was leaked, and found its way to various labels, resulting in the full show being offered to the public, to name a few:

Bottom Dollar (Bell Bottom)
Bottom Dollar (Stardust Remasters)
Wonderful Tonight (On Stage 1978)
California Wind (Mid Valley)

Part of the Stardust Remaster Series, this is an improvement on the original Bell Bottom release - more on that, at the end ...

The "Stardust Remaster" series was available on both silver and CD-R versions, both came with high quality offset press printed artwork.

"The Core", and the blues medley ("Going Down Slow", and "Ramblin' On My Mind") from this performance were later released as part of the "Crossroads 2: Live in the Seventies" box set.

If you listen and compare, it's clear that the officially released versions are remixed - it's a shame they dole out bits and pieces instead of the whole show!

Still, this is a neat one and a personal favorite.  Of note, EC instrumentals are rare enough in concert, but to open a show with one and then segue into one of the few truly er, wonderful, versions of "Wonderful Tonight" is a real treat.

Stardust CD-R > LiteOn iHAP 322 > EAC v. 0.99 Prebeta 4 (Secure Mode, Offset Correct @ +6,0,24 bytes) > FLAC (Level 8) > You !

Artwork, checksums (ffp, MD5, ST5), Audiochecker v. 1.2 logs, EAC extraction logs, info file and whole-torrent MD5 are included.

Now, for the dénouement ... this is *my* personal favorite version of this show, and I think it's clearly superior to the Mid Valley "California Wind" release. This definitely sounds like it's taken from a lower analog generation than the MV release, with less hiss, and really nicely and transparently remastered.

Most importantly, check 'em out, and YOU be the judge ... Enjoy!

This recording is from April 7 and not April 12 as many people are circulating. The song "Let Me Go, Rock And Roll"
had not yet been released on an album (it would be on Hotter Than Hell later in the year) and so the title as it was
used early on was "Baby, Let Me Go."
