I found this a while ago.
In Australia there is a festival called "Big Day Out", at the time of the Australian Cure tour there was a thread about The Cure.
One of the guys recorded and uploaded Melbourne in the blog section on his personal MySpace page here :
http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=135246814&blogID=300055178
The show is in MP3, it says for FLAC (trade only).
I think he writes this about FLAC because at the message board where I found this all of the boys are teenagers who act very immature, I told them 2 weeks ago I can't upload to give to them any of my Cure shows in my collection in MP3 because I don't circulate MP3, I told them I can only trade or use FLAC.
Then I got a lot of their messages telling me it doesn't matter if it is MP3 or FLAC, they said stuff like only eletist snobs would not trade MP3 and made personal attacks on me when I tried to explain to them how MP3 is not generally accepted in trading circles these days (for them FLAC is a big joke).
Basically these guys are not traders, they are immature teenage boys who made a message board for Big Day Out festival their place to hang out on the internet, so they don't care about The Cure (they just buy some albums and go to the concert), I was banned from their forum because I said I have 400+ Cure shows on CD, they laughed at this (on the message board for their friends to see), but then private message me to ask me to give them some concerts (it's a very immature message board).

I can't explain about these guys, the best is to say stupid idiots, in the recording he speaks in the encore that Robert is fat and ate all the pies at the venue....
So the MP3 version is available for download at the link above, if you want FLAC you have to contact the guy to ask....

To be honest it is hard to trust this guy, I think it's possible he would give you MP3 and tell you it is FLAC to disrespect Cure traders (his immature friends would think it was a great joke).

After I told them that MP3 is not accepted and it is best to use FLAC I gave the message board Singapore in FLAC to make them share Australian shows in FLAC, and the next post made was a guy who said "Here is Singapore in MP3 (he gave the MP3 links that A Chain Of Flowers originally had), and all the guys immature teenage friends laughed at this, they thought it was very funny, and sent to me messages laughing that I posted in FLAC (saying please only trade in FLAC) and the guy made a next post with MP3...

So you can contact the guy about FLAC (maybe he will be OK without his friends watching on the message board), but I can't promise, maybe he will be a fool also.....

Sounds like you're better off out of there TBH. :roll:
This is the reason tapers go into "hiding" & then the trading becomes an elitist thing.
It's a double edged sword though.
If the taper's going to put it it in the public domain, then who knows what is going to happen to it afterwards.
& that is why they will gradually disappear.
Have you contacted the taper by any chance?

Cheers

Yes, that's exactly what I was explaining to them, I told them how the fact Singapore was posted in FLAC and then converted and posted as MP3 got the links pulled, I explained to them that this was bad because tapers who have other Australasian shows will not release their recordings in fear of them being converted to MP3, the more I explained the more idiotic and childish they became (like I already said as soon as I posted it in FLAC a fool came along and posted the MP3 links from A Chain Of Flowers), I was told many things like "people who have the elite attitude are dog shit" etc etc etc
I think they see it as though people who want FLAC think they are better than people who want MP3, they are teenagers on a festival message board, they don't trade, they just share MP3's with each other, they don't understand, well actually they just don't care.

Considering they know me as (bomber2007), the username I used on their message board (the same as here) I think I should be the last person to contact them as they obviously already see me as a target for their stupid boy behaviour, as I already explained these people are a terribly immature and idiotic teenage "group", if I was to contact the taper he would probably refuse to give me the show in FLAC, and he would then go and post on their message board that I contacted him and he told me to piss off.... His idiotic friends would find that quite impressive (that's the kind of stupid mentality they have - they seem immature even for teenagers).
Yeah, after I had given them numerous warnings that I would leave and never offer them any of my Cure shows again I eventually left their message board a couple of weeks ago....

If anyone wants to contact the taper at the link all you need is a MySpace account, you can sign up in 1 or 2 minutes.
Maybe if a moderator like dsanchez or lostflower4 contacts him and says they would like the show in FLAC for an international Cure forum he might give it to you......

FLAC is available for trade only.


From what I can see, he is the taper & is offering the flac for trade at least.
Still a bit crap to stick a mp3 out there though.
You never know, there might be another source knocking around that's better.

It's a good recording, it's definately better quality than the 3 other recordings at this forum of Singapore, Perth and Auckland.
The guy put the tracks in really stupid spots (especially for MP3 which leaves gaps), for example there is a MP3 track / gap right in the middle of Robert speaking before "How Beautiful You Are..." (announcing it's only the 2nd time played), it's a bit crappy with an MP3 gap in the middle (So I think it's best to ask from him FLAC with no tracks marked).

But I have no intention to contact the guy about the FLAC version, I'm really finished with the stupid behaviour I had to deal with at the message board he posted this link.

I'm leaving it for someone else to contact him for FLAC.

Steve

Then my advice to you is to contact that guy directly (privately) & send him your list.
Maybe he'll trade with you.

Like I said, the guy was really disrespectful and full of idiotic and immature behaviour on the message board with his friends watching.
I had enough of it, I have no intention to contact him privately, I don't have time to deal with the fools....
Maybe if someone else contacts him privately he will be a sensible person, but I'm not interested to personally speak to him.

anyone could post it in other than megaupload enviroment? I am and I think most of Polish Cure fans cut from this service ;/

Steve

Same here in Hungary.
Only 100 download slots available.
It's an mp3 anyway, so I'll wait until a flac pops up.

And the MP3 version is tracked horribly (listen to the gap in Robert's introduction to only the 2nd How Beautiful You Are... in 20 years).

Sorry you had such a bad experience bomber. At least you tried. Sounds like they need a visit from Supernanny  silly little boys.
The other one feeds on my hesitation
Grows inside of my trepidaton
Buries his claws in my dislocation
I whisper your name to lose control

Steve

The little @ssholes :evil:

Anyone know how I can contact the trader directly.
I clicked all the links & they all seem to lead to myspazz & I'm not about to start with that rubbish. edit:
I relented & registered just so as I could ask him.
I'd like to see if he'll trade his flacs though.
