So I've rediscovered this set and gotten heavy into this weekend. I need all good iterations of it and generally just want to gush over how good it is. As of right now I've got three good copies of this: Toronto (soundboard), Oakland, and Cologne. Links:

OAKLAND (track 1 on archive isn't AE, just seems to be recorded from before they started, some sort of sludge metal or something, I assume the watmm downloads is the same thing so i didn't link the first part)

So basically, this is great stuff. Essentially an album's worth of material...I'm generally terrible at this sort of thing, but I don't recognize anything that got used elsewhere...would be curious if anyone's better ears for that makes some connections to released tunes. The 'tracks' remind me now of NTS in its general structure, flow, attitude, and even sounds...even though obviously we're talking about ~17 years apart, different equipment, etc., AE just gonna be AE it seems. 

 

There was this thread (https://forum.watmm.com/topic/85140-autechre-live-in-toronto-9-may-2001-redux) that had some remaster of it, but I wasn't particularly curious in hunting down a copy as the links I tried didn't work. But otherwise, except some praise in a few other threads, this stuff hasn't been fully discussed or appreciated as far as I can tell. I think it deserves some time in the sun.

 

Beyond just chatting about it, what I'm curious about is this: what other good recordings are there of this set? I see a fair amount from very near these dates, but I haven't begun digging through the rest. Obviously we have a soundboard, but there does seem to be a bit of variation between dates, I'm wondering if there's even more music they were doing as part of it that I haven't found yet...anyone else familiar with these already, or want to start digging through?

 

tl;dr good Confield era tour set is good and needs to be heard

AE_LIVE era, Quar era, and this 2001 set are the best live stuff of theirs. Most 'complete' feeling.

I love the 2001 stuff

I think I have a few other decent audience recordings other than the ones you listed (plus the soundboard)

 

I’ll have to dig through and see if any are really good. Probably no better than what you already listed

 

I think parts of the 2001 set were very tangentially related to some portion of either Dial or CapIV

I forget which one, but when I use to listen to the 2001 live stuff daily i remember putting on that ep and one of those two songs gave me the “oooh that’s where that came from” feel

Yeah, Dial. and Cap.IV are absolutely fantastic; Gantz Graf is one of my favourite of their EPs, the style exhibited in these two songs is definitely something I could use more of, that seems to be vaguely echoed in Etchogon-S

Part 2 missing on the soundboard of Toronto

http://zantman.be/-music/P2.zip

There's something missing from the Toronto soundboard? I've always seen it as one complete file (doesn't negate someone having edited it, but anyway), and anyway you didn't link a soundboard. Explain please

Huh that's really weird, wonder why some of the soundboard recording was cut. Thanks for pointing that out.

Cool fikkinz :) other good audience recordings are fine by me, hoping to have all the good versions available and until Sal and Rod start putting up their copies of these soundboards (pls&thx) we'll have to make due. I think you're right on the somehow related to Dial. or Cap.IV, hadn't thought of that.

 

Agree vproc, Gantz is highly underrated, I always love the more amorphous and hype/high-tempo AE (why I'm so into this live set)

I saw this tour in Minnesota and i was pretty sure they played some material that ended up on Confield.

You really think so? I always thought GG was highly rated by pretty much everyone on here. Maybe it's just me.

 

What did me was when Sean said (in the AAA I think) that Gantz Graf was made around the time of EP7, but they didn't know what to do with it. Mind blowing, such an incredible piece of music.

Gantz Graf, the track, is pretty highly rated I think but I'm not sure how much love & appreciation there is for the EP altogether. Dial. and Cap.IV and GG and therefore the whole EP are among their best work imo. It's the only AE EP I personally have zero criticism of: as far as I'm concerned, it's perfect. It seems to be a bit forgotten amongst most fans I think, at least the vocal ones.

Gantz (the track) being written fairly early is a bit crazy yeah, but I think it goes towards the point I was getting at in the original post of them always sorta having certain sounds and ideas and directions they always tend towards with their tunes.
