This show could be called Revenge of the Fly. On this tour The Smithereens opened for Squeeze and they generally started their set while it was still daylight. By the time Squeeze took the stage the sun had gone down and the band was performing under stage lights. On this night the lights attracted a swarm of insects that literally attacked the band. You can here in in the show as the band demands the lights be shut off. Playing the show pretty much in the dark the band played on. But in comparison to other shows this one is a bit abbreviated. Not the best audience recording but an interesting one none the less.

This is part of the Atlasstar Attic Treasures Series. List of titles included with this torrent. My attic consists of thousands of cassettes collected since the 70's. I will post them in no particular order as I pull them out of the attic and convert to digital. Some of these artists I know well and collect myself, other I know little about just picked up along the way. I will provide as much info as I can but if anyone can add any insight to the recordings it would be appreciated. If the same recording is circulating in better quality please let me know as I have no intention of polluting the trading pool. A list of all recordings in this series is included with the torrent.

All recordings are kept as original as possible with minimal processing. Unless noted otherwise the only adjustments made are Automatic Phase Correction, Level adjustments and cleaning of any rough or abrupt cuts.
