"The correct date is 3rd September 1981, it was a concert with 4 acts at the "Funkausstellung" in the ICC Berlin. The correct setlist is Eastbourne ladies, Old fashioned love song, Turpentine, I don't know what to do, Dark dance hall/Day to day, America, Stand up, A loving hand, and an encore that has not been broadcasted on the radio; I don't remember anymore what is was, only that Steve Lamb did not came back on stage - only Dave Sheen and John Etheridge accompanied Kevin on that last one. It has been a very strange audience, Bad Manners was the main act, and unfortunately their fans made much trouble that you can hear of throughout the set ("I‚m not a popstar, so forget about it" etc. - but I don't know whether the bootleg really documents all these things?). Kevin even let is pants down and showed his ass to the audience (you may identify this scene by the reaction in the audience during John's solo in I don't know what to do). Really a bad context for a brilliant band. The interplay of the band has been extremely fascinating and full of energy - nothing that compares with Rough live (I also like Pete Kirtley, especially his Bush Telegraph with Steve Lamb on bass, but John Etheridge - even if he has spoken not very good about this time - is simply somewhat better)...
The Death of Ludwig van Beethoven was just a mini-sketch, not really a song. Just Kevin smoking on the stage (what was not allowed, of course), choking. Most probably a spontaneous idea. He had many of them those days"
Harald also provided a cdr transfer of the show, feat. 2 extra songs from a Dec 1983 show at the Quasimodo in Berlin.
