Outstanding set from arguably Factory Records' most influential band, barring a certain Godlike Genius that knows how to strum a chord or three, or a half-Salford/half-Macclesfield beat band of some renown...whom they pay homage to by covering one of their songs.  
A real coup for Part Time Punks to bring them to the last gig they played in the States.  Was of course front and center for this one, and this recording has made the rounds before but is to this day one of my favorites and I still listen to it from time to time.

The photo montage is made up of my original super-blurry photos, some more of which are below.

The band had recorded the Cure cover for a French compilation as part of Fear Drop Magazine...and decided to play it live.  Be thankful it wasn't Love Cats!   They also played selections from then-release 1938 as well as some 80's dirges.  Was a tough choice between them and Pylon playing at the same time below them, but since I figured I was going to see them in SF at the Independent (which I did), I'd catch Thom and band instead...not sure it was the correct decision given these would be Pylon's final shows, but hey, that's life...

Unfortunately, there's no photos or video footage of their PTP Fest Nov 2008 set, but urckrecords did film a few songs in the same venue 11 months earlier, with a board feed, too...so these sound like you're right there beating on the 55 gallon oil drum.  Enjoy!
