 Few months ago Pete send me link for this one :

Kevin Coyne - Rencontre avec Richard Branson (mp4)

Pascal (& Uwe) said:

- Steve Dinsdale found this on INA website: "RENCONTRE AVEC RICHARD BRANSON" from the French TV show "Pop Deux", Nov 1st 1973. A feature about Branson and the new Virgin label. Features an absolutely great acoustic show of Kevin with Gordon Smith performing Marjory, Good Boy and I Want my Crown. Also a nice interview.

Thanks Pete !

KEVIN COYNE - 1986-07-19 - NUERNBERG, Burggrabe

KEVIN COYNE - 1986-07-19 - NUERNBERG, Burggraben  
@ flac

Spacebandit said:

Burggraben, Nuernberg, Germany
July - 19 - 1986
Outdoor show
from SEETHELIGHT7 collection # 705
Rec. Info:
unknown lineaged very low-gen FM recording. This tape (TDK SA90) -> playback on NAK DR3* -> HD -> WeTransfer -> my HD -> Audacity (edit/remaster) -> WAV 16/44 -> TLH8 -> FLAC ->
YOUR EARS AND MIND...on turpentine! * done by SEETHEFUZZ7
Unfortunately just a snippet of this great show from one of the finest singer/songwriters ever walked this earth! Also, the tracks are definitely not in the correct running order,
as all tracks faded out (quite amateurishly done) during the applause. The first song is maybe the last of this show, or at least the last before the encore. My guess is that this
origins from a BR3 "Zündfunk" broadcast. Anyway, the sound is very nice to excellent. I added a bit more low end for a more satisfying listening.
As mentioned before, KEVIN COYNE, multitaltented artist of music, poetry and painting, left this world far too early. A few weeks before his 61th birthday he passed away from the
complications of a lungdesease in late 2004. A resident of Nuernberg since 1985, he chose Germany as his home to concentrate on his full scale of artistry and got married there, too.
Praised as an so called "anti-star", he never floated along with the music biz, but stood straight and strong to his own believes. Great man, indeed.
My first encounter with him was when I watched a videotape of his 1976 Rockpalast show in the early 80's and thought: Well, that guy is really MAD! But I loved the performance.
Unfortunately I saw him only once in 1990 at infamous "Hyde Park" in Osnabrueck, when he opened for Randy California's SPIRIT. I can cleary remember him grumbling about the fact that
"someone" teamed him up with that band (all in the "sung" song interludes!) and surely he stole the show from them. Think I shit in my pants from laughter about this crazy supreme
cynical humour... Ok, it was an odd pairing, indeed. So, I hope there are a lot more tapes from him out there, waiting to be released or reseeded in the year of his 70th anniversary
and sadly the 10th of his passing. And wherever his soul is now, he won't be the comfortable guy, but a righteous man who never let anyone bow him. SB.
ALL THAT WAS ON TAPE (36:04 min.)

01. Turpentine (4:15)
02. The World is Full of Fools (4:33)
03. Tell the Truth (6:03)
04. Mummy (6:10)
05. Saviour (6:29)
06. Gina's song (6:11)
07. Let me be with you (2:20) fades out midsong

Setlist is a matter of guess, sorry no PRETTY PARK or HOUSE ON THE HILL here...
Also, unfortunately no details about the lineup. Maybe someone can help with both?

Do not convert to lossy files, unless for personal use. No lossy net use! Flac rules!
If you sell...you wanna get some turpentine? Tasty!

Uploaded for the memory of KEVIN COYNE (27.01.1944 -> 02.12.2004) on DIME by Spacebandit 2014/09/02 "

Uwe sent more info:

"The 3rd track is ‘Tell the truth’ from “Politicx” album.

Line up: 
Hans Pukke (guitar), 
Robert Steinhart (bass) and 
Falk Steffen (drums). 

The show happened the day after the band returned from their GDR tour that we have as bootleg too."

Thanks for Spacebandit and people from Dime for this boot.
Also thanks to Uwe for more info.

KEVIN COYNE - 1979 Babble, Rock Club (live boot) @ 192

KEVIN COYNE - 1979 Babble, Rock Club (live boot) @ 192
(by request)

Pascal said:

Recorded live in 1978 (between 31 July and 3rd August - for years I thought this was from 1979), at Rock Club, Covent Garden, London, good sound. Artwork by Kevin Coyne, layout by me.
Kevin Coyne with Dagmar Krause (vocals), Zoot Money (keyboards), Brian Godding (guitar - first recorded appearance with Coyne. Godding had played with The Blossom Toes, Magma and many more).
Total time 62:00. 
Same titles as the BABBLE LP (although a year before the album) plus monologues.

Are You Deceiving Me? 2:54
Come Down Here 2:49
Dead Dying Gone 2:24
Stand Up 2:40
Lonely Man 3:11
I Really Love You 3:03 [1978 B-side]
Sun Shines Down On Me 3:00
I Confess 3:24
Sweetheart 3:00
Shaking Hands With The Sun 4:04
My Mind's Joined Forces 2:58
It's My Mind 3:50
Love Together 3:40
Happy Homes 1:40
It Really Doesn't Matter /
We Know Who We Are 3:58

This is the best Babble boot ever: good sound and performance, a splendid - as ever - Zoot Money, amazing lyrics. For these first performances of Babble (a year before the album), Kevin Coyne does monologues between the songs, with a totally different text from the 1979 Europe and London performances. For the moment, Dagmar sticks to singing.
Michale recalls for the Kevin Coyne Group: "I know this  recording along with a number of other Coyne recordings of this period are often attributed to others, but it was often me with a Sanyo cassette recorder dangling over the monitor at the front of the stage, and usually with Kevin’s blessing. I recall that this was one of four nights of Babble at the Rock Club and on the next night  Kevin had to sing every song as Dagmar was ill. Wish I’d recorded that one! Kevin’s then wife Lesley was at that particular show and upon learning she was disappointed in missing Dagmar, I piped up and offered and subsequently sent her a copy of this recording."

The Babble chronology is :
Rock Club London July 78
June 79 album out and Europe tour (Paris, Sweden, Holland, Germany)
June 79 the scheduled show at Stantford Theatre is cancelled because of The Sun controversy.

Cornelius says:
"The concert took place in the Club Luxor, Koeln (Cologne), Germany. I was there two or three times, and visited this concert, and a concert of Eric Burdon at a time, not much people were interested in him. The club is small. At the entrance is a barroom, then a small, long corridor with tables and chairs at the walls. The corridor leads to a small free room, maybe a dancefloor. There is place enough for about 100 or 200 people. The concert was pretty nice."

Thanks to Cornelius and Uwe.

KEVIN COYNE Paris, Forum Des Halles, 1983 April 9 aud SM master 1994 plus Bonus: Paris, Europe 1 radio studios, Top live show, 1994 November 24 FM master

Serge said :

"Visiting the great "The World of Kevin Coyne" blog (cheers, Poor), this made me remembering an old recording I made in Paris.
To me, there's no reason to doubt the exact date is 1983 April 9: that's my cassette sleeve says, the set list is different from the known April 7 and 8 Forum Des Halles boots and there is a guest musician on harmonica (not for others shows).
I don't pretend showing something new to the true Kevin-maniacs, just uploading an exc audience uncirculated master.

I only knew Kevin through his albums and shows ("In living black and white" is in my top 5 live records) but i remember him as a true, sincere artist and a very nice (and desperate ?) person.

Forum show: recorded on Sony TCD5 M with Beyer dynamic M 201 mics, close to the stage.

Kevin Coyne with:
Peter Kirtley on guitar,
Dave Sheen on drums,
and as guest on harmonica, Mark Slaze (surely not exact name)

A radio FM session for French radio is added as a bonus.

My attempt for set-lists:

Paris, Forum Des Halles 1983 April 9; audience master.

01 I'm in the mood for love
02 You can't do that
03 I wanna hold your hand
04 Nothing seems to matter
05 Children’s Crusade
06 Araby
07 Sunday morning sunrise
08 The monkey man
09 Band intro
10 The old fashioned love song
11 Crowd encore
12 Knocking on heaven's door
13 Hush hush
14 Saviour

Bonus: Paris, Europe 1 radio studios, Top live show, 1994 November 24 FM master

01 Lunatic
02 Araby
03 If you be my girl
04 Baby blue

Cassettes played on a Marantz SD 4051 cassette deck with pitch adjustment; zoom H4 for wave files; PC; audacity for volume and tracking; FLAC."

Thanks a lot to Serge for this one !

Tony was a friend of Kevin; one night in January 1979 (possibly 13th), after a night down the pub, Kev and Tony went back to Kevin's house. Tony put a cassette on and Kevin started improvising...
An absolutly amazing tape.
With the exception of a VERY early version of Best Friend, the songs are improvisations that I'm only naming here with their first lines:
I never told you
Talk to me about IRA (God bless Ireland)
Best Friend
I thought I heard somebody call

Nice recording, very good sound!
Don't miss this!

Back cover art by Robert Coyne

Disc #2 Produced by Kevin Coyne at Alvic (engineered by Mike)

The World Speaks (KC/BG) 2:27
You Can't Kill Us 2:04

CD release (1CD): Virgin CDV 3504, released in 1991.

Record #1 is pure power pop and works quite well; record #2 is very innovative avant-garde with Robert Wyatt.
In 1988, Brian Godding released a great instrumental jazz-rock LP called "Slaughter on Shaftesbury Avenue", recorded for the most part with GLS and where he played some of the themes from Sanity Stomp #2.

Says Kevin about 'Sanity': " I was quite ill when I made that record, as a matter of fact; I was quite mad, basically. That’s why it’s called Sanity Stomp. I had a nervous breakdown and, ironically, I don’t want to say ironically...amazingly...I was able to carry on making records. That’s a record I made when I was clinically ninety-five per cent nuts, and the themes are rather odd, but somehow it comes out as sounding all right. I’m amazed."

Fascinating. Again, new musicians who come from a jazz/jazz rock background and take the music in another new direction. A personal favorite."

In 2004, Brian Godding told (on his website) about the recording of 'Bubbles'. Extract:
"Kevin said he’d like to continue the musical relationship at the end of the run of gigs and invited me to contribute to his next Album for Virgin records so of coarse I was well down for that. At this point I had no idea what he had in mind but I knew it would be something totally different to to what I’d done before and, it most certainly was! I’d long given up the desire to write’songs’ so I assumed that I’d turn up, plug in and learn a few songs he’d written but that was not the plan at all! Kevin (well actually Bob [Ward]) booked some studio time and on arriving and setting up Kevin looked at me and said,” got any tunes or cord sequences”?-------(!!!!!!) I beg your pardon( I thought!), well, for some reason( probably sheer terror!) I started fiddling around with this little sequence of riffs and cords and Kev’ said, “I like that, play it again”. So, I play it again, Kevin riffles through a pile of poems and lyrics and starts singing this amazing song over the top of it!! Bloody hell!( me thinks) this is going to be good when we sort it out! “Got that on tape Bob”? Kevin says as we grind to a halt after some time, Bob gives a nod from the control room and we appear to have ‘ Learn to swim, learn to drown’,the first track for the new album , Bursting Bubbles!!! I said to Kevin that maybe we should do another take at least but he just said “why”? He was of coarse right as this was the way he worked and we made the rest of the album in the same way( he did let me do a few overdubs though, just to keep me happy!) A very spontaneous performer and artist with the ability to pull it off and, of great importance, a very selfless and generous gent!!"
