I am curious to know where most of you get bootleg recordings of the foos?
Please share your best addresses! :)
Pretty sure this isn't allowed but maybe it has changed since this isn't an official FF site any longer.
If you don't mind torrents Dimeadozen.org is where most new sources get posted, you can also find some at Zomb torrents.
Also starting soon, here. I'm going to start sharing some stuff here, in this subforum. Others are also welcome to post stuff, there is only one main rule.....
It's allowed, the rule is that nothing commercially released can be posted and despite being an unofficial forum I'm sticking with that rule out of respect.
So bootlegs of live shows or demos never released are fine, official releases, B-Sides etc, no.
Good to know.
I remember the days when I used to have to go down to Camden Market on a Saturday or Sunday to buy a cassette or VHS video of bootlegged show recordings. They were always shitty quality - especially the video - but I had a huge collection of bootlegged stuff.
Now days you just look for stuff on YouTube.
Makes me feel old 😅
I still have a handful of tapes laying around but nowadays it's all about building up a digital archive. 2.5 TB and counting...
BTW, don't suppose you a) ever picked up a bootleg of the Underworld 2006 show at Camden and b) still have it by any chance? :p
It was always rumoured to be on sale at the market but being hundreds of miles away, I couldn't exactly pop down for a look.
No I didn't have that particular bootleg.
I lost all my bootleg stuff in 2011. When I moved to Canada I had all my bootleg stuff (and gig tickets, programmes etc) in a couple of boxes which I stored in the basement until I got around to unpacking it. Then I had a huge flood in the basement and lost everything 😥😥😥
Dang, that sucks. 😮
Bootlegs are easily replaceable but I'd hate to lose all my memorabilia stuff.
Yeah - I was really upset when it happened 😥
I used to record interviews and videos from the TV myself and kept them for way too long, considering they've all been on youtube by then. 😅
Thank you all for your answers!
Though I think the one ""we" always make an exception for is Pocketwatch right?
Official but only on tape through Simple Machines, and not "actually" Foo.
And rips of Rough Mixes - we kinda have to welcome all of those lol
Yeah, PW was always exempt because it was OOP. No reason we won't carry on here. Anything else it'll just basically be my judgement based on how likely I think it is that the band wouldn't approve.
