Listen

Am hoping to get permission to put some other recordings up here, but for now, here’s a few live SARDINE v tracks for your listening pleasure.

Crystal Ballroom Melbourne, 26th June 1982

This was Barton Price’s last gig with the band before leaving to join the Models. It turned into a long, rambling, chaotic, drunken night, with members of the Models joining SARDINE v on stage. (This information is according to the person who gave me the recordings. Unfortunately I wasn’t there.)

Cowboy Song – Recorded at Governor’s Pleasure, 10 December 1982

Went down to see you / at the local saloon,
The place was crowded / there wasn’t much room
Then I saw your face / nothing out of place.

    Great to see what you have done with the site, Megan. I was a great fan of Sardine V, probably Ian’s most underrated and neglected band! I keep hoping that some live material will be released one of these days, especially given that people are still finding & releasing material by X. Keep up the great work.

    Glad you’re enjoying it bikeboy! I do have some more live Sardine V material, and I’d like to put some more up here when I get time to do some more work on the site – so check back regularly.

    Getting stuff released is out of my hands unfortunately, but I would love to see it happen too.

      Hi David – Moonstruck is on the CD “Total Union” which has been available through Aztec Music – not sure where they’re at, as they were insolvent, but seems Gryphon has picked them up. Can’t see it on Gryphon’s website but you could try contacting Aztec and see if it’s available:
