Hey guys,

I got my Desertshores set yesterday and went and ripped all the CDs  
and stuck them on 2 DVDRs, have listened to the first one CD at work.

Packaging is not bad - contains photo inserts of each day's setlists  
and part of the poster, as well as recreations of the fliers that  
would have been at the event.  There's also a folded up Desertshore  
poster in the back of the wallet.

Audio wise the quality seems to be from a mic set up on the stage -  
possibly cutting to soundboard at certain points (but I'm not entirely  
sure yet) it is clear - but obviously raw audio.  The first hour I  
listened to is mostly them trying to get their gear to work and  
getting Gen singing like Nico.  It's quite an interesting listen, and  
Sleazy's intro at the beginning was nice to hear - but this set really  
is for the die-hards, be sure to pick up TG24 and TG+ before thinking  
about going for this set.  Chris Carter does indeed sound like an Easy  
End London gangster, I actually thought it was a roadie at first.   
Anyone seen Knowing Me Knowing You with Alan Partridge? ;-)

I finally get into a flat with an internet connection next month so  
I'll get clips of the sessions on the TG site, as well as pictures of  
the set and other assorted info and updates.  In the meantime here's

  I asked a German translator at my work what the German tracks were  
called on the album.  Le Petit Chevalier is French for The Little  
Knight, if I'm not mistaken.

Mutterlein = old fashioned informal version of mother

Abschied = farewell

Abscheid = A parting (note - on one of the setlists Abschied is  
mispelt Abscheid which is a different word in German).

Take it easy,
