Glenn Branca - Hallucination City

Camden Roundhouse - 12th October 2007

In four movements: “March”, “Anthem”, “Drive” and “Vengeance”. This is an almost complete recording, just the last minute or so of the final movement is missing. Unfortunately, my recorder was accidentally set to double play i.e. half speed, so the quality is not quite what it might have been.

Update - 24th November 2008. The above was encode at 128 kbps. I have now re-done it at 320 so here are new links.

12. What'd I Say - false starts
13. encore - nobody over at www.iorr.org seems to know what it is, so I think it must just be a 12-bar improvisation

There is some heavy mic scraping for the first few seconds, but this only intrudes on the announcements.
I lost about 10 seconds in the middle of "You Gotta Move" where the tape went into reverse. There is a slightly bigger bit lost from the middle of "Blind Willie McTell" to swap tapes.
