I've never heard them so loud and clean live. I thought it was great.

Yeah I love the Barbican. The whole estate is amazing, reminds me of Syndicate on the Amiga. Less guns/murder tho.

It's a common haunt for me, photographically speaking

@amni was the one who did a lot of “mastering” work on some of the live shows a few years ago 

Ah yes, they did a really nice job on my previous batch (London R.F.H., Brighton Concorde2, Manchester Granada Studios) - are you out there Amni?

Went to the first set at the Barbican last night. Completely incredible. Relentlessly brutal with moments of real beauty. Every "track" full of so much creativity and the transitions were done really well. Felt like a proper coherent hour of music despite the variety in each section. Also thought the soundsystem was really good, loads of clarity in the sound. Absolutely loved it, can't wait to listen to the soundboards.

Out of interest where were you sat? Cos I reckon that might be one of the biggest factors in enjoyment in there. Acoustics made a huge difference.

I know next time I see anything at the Barbican I'm going back centre, cheapest tickets and usually some of the last available.

I wonder if they'll ever want to come back to Vancouver, I think I read somewhere around here that they hate it tho lol? Sean pls? I'll go to Seattle if I have to.

nice! Thank you for sharing. One of the better sounding tapes of this tour so far and the material itself seems different than other shows to me.  

Curious what is the best quality tape that’s surfaced so far? Other than Helsinki official of course. I haven’t followed super closely so I might be missing a good capture but before the Helsinki soundboard i’d settled on a homemade “remaster” of this recording

Same thing with Paris, Don't remember the interview but they were talking trash about the Parisian Public during the 2005 tour (if I remember correctly) Can't blame them TBH since I hate this hellhole, really hope they'll come back to Lyon...

sound and clarity was great - I love the Barbican - being seated for Ae felt odd to me. I'd have save through a 3rd set.

Who's the best person on the forum currently for sorting out files?

I have recordings of both Barbican sets but they will need some subtle mastering attention and hosting somewhere, I don't have a mega account etc. I'd like W.A.T.M.M.ers to be able to hear them but don't want them splashing all over YouTube...

I'm willing to help on this task

Hi there,

They are 48KHz, 24Bit WAV recorded on a ZoomH4npro - both recorded from the stalls - 1st set from Row J, central left, 2nd set stalls Row G dead-centre - both need some handling of the bass end, a bit of balancing of the mids and top end to make it breathe a bit more as the low-end can be a little overwhelming, but still needs that punch. Send me a DM and I'll get the files to you if you want to give it a go.

Did you record the ZF sets too?

Yes! I'm not sure if I can share them about as the guys didn't manage to record their sets, they had some pretty bad technical problems in soundcheck and it wasn't possible for them to sort it, so I've passed them on in case they want to do anything with them - send me a DM and I'll let you know

woah, this like helsinki's lil b-boy brother. sharing quite a bit of pallet, but this one's seems more upfront n funky, also think i know what ppl meant with the "dial" part.

if this is similarly better in hi res like the other one compared to bootlegs, we're in for another god damn treat alright. ❤️

Won't get to see the wonderboys this time round but just browsing this thread is good vibe central. The excitement is contagious, Sean chiming in with good tidings of things, concert photos of togetherness (fu covid) and lush recordings trickling in from here and there. 

How have the zoviet france sets been?

I only saw the first one (apparently the two differed on the night) - Very nice though very slight. Their backing visuals (a still image of what looked like vertical strips of a photo of the middle of the forest (edit: See @commercial's photo 6 posts up 🙂 ) ) were actually a perfect representation of what it sounded like: Like the sound of wind blowing through trees ran through nicely tuned resonant filter playing soft ambient notes. They managed to fit in what sounded like two distinct pieces (the first with percussive water-dripping sounds leading the aforementioned tree-wind/resonant sounds and the second with faint tribal beats over tree-wind/resonant sounds)

Was definitely a stark contrast to the chaos the Ae boys brought but really nice all the same. Not sure if they were pushed for time but the finish seemed a little abrupt - like they were told to wrap the thing up in 30 seconds when they actually had a 10 minute wrap-up planned !

It's a real-time video, not a still, if you stayed on one section of it you would have seen the wind move some of it and the light shifts, it's just *very* subtle!

As for the timing, yes, they were up against the schedule, usually they have an hour to develop the different shifts and themes, thirty minutes is a little short for them to fit the narrative arc.
