Lush – Live At Reading 1994 – Past Daily Backstage Pass

Lush – probably one of the most influential bands of the Shoegaze era, happily (and with much relief) reunited in 2016 and were gigging and going on tour. They hit Coachella in April, and their much anticipated concert tour was sold out in cities, not only throughout Europe, but also...

The Kinks – In Session – August, 1965 – Past Daily Soundbooth

The Kinks in 1965, were one of the truly influential and pivotal bands in what became known as The British Invasion which began in earnest in 1964. They were a cut above many of the bands hitting the charts at the time. The songwriting of Ray Davies was poles apart...

The Real People – In Session 1991 – Nights At The Roundtable: Session Edition

The Real People – a group which may not ring a lot of bells, unless you had your ears to the ground at the time and knew something was up. Although not from Manchester (they were from Liverpool), they probably did a lot to bring Madchester to fruition, if for...

The Tourists – In Concert – 1979 – Past Daily Soundbooth

The Tourists for a Monday night – Live At The Paris Theatre, London – June 23, 1979 – BBC Radio 1. The Tourists had a reasonable following in the U.S., but nothing compared to the success when Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart left to form The Eurythmics. Guitarists Peet Coombes...

Free - in session at the BBC

Free – In Session 1969 – Past Daily Soundbooth

Most people think of the band Free and immediately recall their early 70s anthem All Right Now. It has cast an indelible shade on the music which defined the close of the 60s and the dawn of Hard Rock for a lot of oldies radio stations. Unfortunately, it has also...

Led Zeppelin in concert 1971

Led Zeppelin – Live At Paris Theatre – 1971 – Past Daily Weekend Soundbooth: John Peel Presents.

For no good reason whatsoever, it’s been almost 5 years since I last posted a Led Zeppelin concert. There are times you assume everyone has heard every note and every handclap of every album and every concert they ever did. And since Past Daily is, for the most part, committed...

Tears For Fears – In Concert At Hammersmith Palais 1983 – Past Daily Soundbooth

Ending up the week with a 1983 concert from Tears For Fears. Recorded by the BBC right around the time of the release of their debut album, The Hurting. They were enormously popular right from the start. Their debut album went platinum – a pattern that would be duplicated, and...

The Kinks

The Kinks – In Session – 1965 – Past Daily Soundbooth

Heading in the direction of the weekend with a 1965 session from The Kinks. Another band that shaped the future of Rock in the 1960s with some of the most memorable and influential songs of the British Invasion period (and well into the 70s with the iconic Lola), The Kinks...
