  1. Good news!
    I got my Bestival CD last week but I was deeply dissapointed by the sound... too noisy and raw and the drums were so thin. I hope this broadcast was remixed and improved.

  2. This is the part that caught my attention:
    "Length 2 hours"

    Just throwing it out there...

  3. I wish somebody would record this and share it haha, I am yet to see the hour long broadcast!

  4. I'm also desperately hoping someone will record it and share! I'd love to see the full broadcast as I was unable to attend the show itself.

  5. Is this 2 hrs of the cure? When they showed it live the broadcast was 2hrs but only about 20 mins of the cure were shown. Please don't tell me I have to sit through that ginger whining kid again?

  6. I believe it's a full 2 hours of The Cure.

  10. The drums already sound better than the album.

    Jason really should give Robert a kick in the arse. He ruins his drumming in production

  15. Blinking Nora Barry - I go upstairs for a minute to check something, get distracted and you steal all my glory!

    P.s. (That is not the name of a previously unknown song on the broadcast)

  23. Over:


    they started and finished the show with what sounded like a really nice version of 'Tape' from The Wish Tour. Not the normal version as far as I remember

  24. Thank you so much, Barry and Mark! Always interesting to see what gets cut and what makes it. Interesting that it was 3 Disintegration tracks that were cut from the main set.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hmm, maybe a little preview of something we'll be hearing at the festival shows this year? Part of the 20th anniversary celebration for Wish?

    ReplyDelete
  26. It sounded like a single guitar version of the main riff from "Tape", possibly an isolated guitar channel from the live intro to "Open" which Robert may have played.

    ReplyDelete

  34. I am dumfounded at the lack of requests for a torrent

    ReplyDelete
  35. I Imagine that everyone's waiting for F~D to post it...

    ReplyDelete
  36. I agree....where, oh where is a torrent of this? Someone has to step up to the plate and offer this to all of us!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm not saying that anyone has to share it, I'm just surprised that hardly anyone is asking and that the comments seem to have just stopped, just odd is all

    ReplyDelete
  38. i will patiently wait for someone to convert the broadcast...as long as someone out is doing it. i hope. i hope. i've been looking for a download/torrent but can't find any yet. please someone share.

  41. any chance someone might upload it somewhere else? we can't access Pirate Bay in Italy...

    ReplyDelete
  42. ok i managed to get it anyway. but does anybody has a better quality recording of it to put up? i don't wanna sound ungrateful to the person who uploaded this one, but the video looks like a streming recording and the audio is very very very low.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I downloaded the Piratebay version.

    I don't mean to sound ungrateful, but it looks more like a stream rip than something recorded from the TV.

    I too hope a watchable version pops up.
