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.)
Somebody Loves Me (Extended) – members of the Models join the band onstage for this crazy extended version of Somebody Loves Me:
Don’t Take No, with a nice little “bye bye” to Barton at the end:
Later SARDINE v shows
New York City – Recorded at Strata Inn, 10 September, 1982
I’m in love with New York City / She’s so tall and she’s so pretty, yeah.
We’re in love with New York City / We’ve never been there isn’t it a pity, yeah.
Ding Dong Dell – Recorded at Governor’s Pleasure, 10th December 1982
I’m so tired of going to work, wake up in the morning and oh it hurts,
My boss has been giving me trouble, when he says do it, it’s do it on the double!
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.
