Have anyone this boot with a track list and can tell it here?

Great stuff!!!!!!!! excited

Thanks to everyone who can help...

Hi Shadow Man!

I have a copy but it's compressed and can't listen to it yet. I'm getting it now in 2 CD-R's.

As far as I know there is only one bootleg of Cathedral Oceans and was recorded at Shrewsbury Cathedral. It is approx 80 mins. long.

It should be fun to identify the track listing. I'm sure most of these tracks are in Vol's 1 + 2...unless someone's done the fun but hard work already.

Perhaps Malpaso Man has the answer wink

Andy,
If it's the copy I did for METAL BEAT then as far as I know it was the Shrewsbury gig that Chris mentioned. Not sure of the exact date and I never had a tracklisting for it.

Glad you like it anyway smile

Hi Ashley
It is the disc that you sent to me. I couldn't open the disc so it was sent to Andreas. Thank you Andreas for opening it. I'm really looking forward to hearing this boot. wink
Regards

Dear Chris,
this time I haven't a clue about your question.

But the idea of identifying "Cathedral Oceans" stuff is not exactly exciting... zzzzz

Chris, Ash!
Thanks for the information. Now I know it was recorded in the Shrewsbury Cathedral. Do you know the date? I think I read in the past John done some concerts like this in the eighties...

So Ash - you are right, it is the MP3 copy for Peter. I opened it and found A LOT OF STUFF!!!
Thanks for it!! laugh

And Natas - it's no problem to do a copy...

So this is John's new CD for Christmas for me and Peter ( and everyone who want).
A Great Gig!!! I wish I been there banghead

Regards, Andreas

Glad you both liked it mate. wink

From what I remember, there was a few gigs on the dvd and although I haven't listened to them all yet I usually convert them one by one and listen to them in the car.

By the sound of your feedback Andreas I've got quite a bit to look forward to smile

Re: Cathedral Oceans - Live - Mon, 27 Dec 2004 09:59:00

Andreas, you're a top bloke .
The boot is great, track 2 and 5 must be two of John's finest pieces, if these two never get a propar recording or release then that would be a real shame. sad
Barrowlands boot is on it's way to you mate.
Cheers again, you've made an old Foxx fan very happy. laugh laugh

Re: Cathedral Oceans - Live - Mon, 27 Dec 2004 19:59:00

Oh, thanks Natas - but i give the compliment away to Mr. Pig (Ash). Without his help I could never made you glad with this one...Thanks a lot again for this Ash!!! laugh

And it is great to see the advertising for this concert! If I read it right, it was on Thursday the 17th March. So now the only secret is the year and the tracklist. bemused

I agree with you about the boot. Absolutely great gig. Hope John will do more concerts like this in the future...

GREAT SOUNDTRACK OVER THE CHRISTMAS TIME excited

Look forward for the Barrowlands...

Bye, Andreas wink

Hi
I have just been lucky enough to hear a boot of this wonderful concert. (well most of it, CO's has this strange habit of making me doze off). zzzzz

Has anyone on this forum fortunate enough to be at this concert? I was wondering whether John worked alone who there were other musicians and what the atmosphere was like in the church?

Thank you Mr Pig for making this available for us. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />

At least you worked out your personal problems to find your copy.... laugh
(You know what I mean biglaugh )

I'm sure you would go with me, if John would do a gig like this one !? ( But I'm sure you go with me to a gig from John whatever the music style would be wink )

Re: Cathedral Oceans - Live - Mon, 17 Jan 2005 16:06:00

Could someone PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, upload a torrent of the Catheral Oceans bootleg??? and let me know where I can find it.

I am in Australia and John Foxx material is VERY hard to find and JF will probably never tour here.

My eternal gratitude in advance.
Doug

P.S. I found a great site for bootleg torrents (but no JF) http://www.easytree.org/

Re: Cathedral Oceans - Live - Mon, 17 Jan 2005 18:31:00

So who's going to be first then to work out the tracklisting then? I'll give it my best shot...
I can identify one or two pieces by ear now. Avenham Collonade stands out for instance

It's a bit like early Cocteaus stuff. Put a CD on random and your f**ked. It all sounds the same to me...(ooh that'll upset someone!!).

The Shrewsbury concert was when? 1993? Before the CD release?

WHY WHY WHY didn't these concerts get promoted more!

Re: Cathedral Oceans - Live - Tue, 18 Jan 2005 02:22:00

If I remember right, the dates and venues were written on the old Metamatic site but I cannot remember it...

Rob, can you give any light on this?

Yes, I was there with my friend Pete Davies. Pete was late getting to my place in Moseley so we broke the land-speed record to get to Shrewsbury! The concert was atmsopheric, yes (btw, St Chad's is not "Shrewsbury Cathedral"), and went down well - I'd say about half the audience were probably people who'd never heard of John before - though Pete and I both kind of wished it'd been a "normal" JF concert. In the end I didn't get to see one of those until Manchester '03. Pete and I were among a small group of fans who spoke to John after the show - he autographed a couple of guys' JF record collections, I wonder if those two guys are on the forum?

Year? I'll get back to you on that one...

Cheers, Adrian

Interesting report, Adrian!

Do you remember John worked alone or with other musicians ?

And if you could remember which year it was happen - this would be great!!!!

Re: Cathedral Oceans - Live - Thu, 17 Feb 2005 02:58:00

Hi everyone

Pedant that I am, I have made contact with the administrator of St. Chad's in Shrewsbury asking about this concert, somewhen between 1988 and 1993 - I even sent them the ad.
Unfortunately and despite numerous phone calls, they are "unable to confirm" what year this took place. frown

As far as I can make out, there seems to be many pieces played at this gig tho that haven't yet been released on the Cathedral Oceans albums - they seem to be more 'lively' and feature a lot more vocal?

So, it's over to Rob and the gigography...

I left Moseley in September 1989 so it was definitely before then.

I'm pretty sure it was John on his own. I say this because when the concert started there was this guy playing synths and I was expecting John to walk on and join him... and then I realised the guy WAS John... smile (Well, it was relatively dark - there was no light show!)

Throughout the concert there was a slide show of John's well-known statue-face photomontages, so it was pretty unique from that point of view too.

Re: Cathedral Oceans - Live - Fri, 18 Feb 2005 22:04:00

Thanks for the reply Adrian.

So I assume it was 17th March 1988 , because this year was often mentioned. To be sure in this only Rob could give us the answer but it seems it is a big secret???!!!

Thanks again Adrian for let us knowing John played on his own. I love this boot and you can be a glad man 'cause you stood at the gig. wink

It's not a secret - honest... wink

But with one thing and another I haven't been able to spend much time here lately.

I recently managed to get hold of a promotional poster from this show - that will definitely have the date on it. The poster itself will appear on Metamatic as soon as I get the chance to catch my breath... wink

Any chance that someone out there could please send me a copy of this Cathedral Oceans show on CD?

No Problem Rob. I will burn you a copy and send it next week.
It would be VERY FANTASTIC if you could find out the track list. Except one track it is all unreleased stuff BUT VERY NICE!!!

Can you look on your poster for the date and let us know it here ? Would be very kind...

The Metamatic site seems to include many specials... I'm keen for it.

I honestly don't think that there was a track list as such. I'll ask John to see if he can remember what was played...

CO live. Interesting subject. For me it is a very unusual sound. Nothing like the Official CO but I love to listen to it even if the sound quality isn't that great. Very relaxing. It would be nice to be able to put titles to the tracks but it was a long time ago . I know we will find out more about this particular concert has time goes on.

Hope this helps... wink

Re: Cathedral Oceans - Live - Tue, 22 Feb 2005 00:42:00

Interesting. And thanks very much Rob!

Cathedral Oceans 1988. As Andreas says, it is quite different from the official released material five years later.
I know the project evolved over many years before finally being released on CD/DVD, so the sound perhaps underwent changes too.
Regarding tracklisting, it would be interesting to discover whether the performance at St Chad's (and other places?) was of different pieces, or early versions of pieces which have since been released.

Rob - you're a star. Nice one... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />
