Big Black - Way Hap Ultimate Rarities

There are two ways to blog about Big Black, there is the wrong way: Big Black, and there is the right way: BIG BLACK I rambled on about BIG BLACK in this post so I won't bother going through all that crap again. Even though Albini is a weeny little dude with funny little specs he's one manly mother flucker ain't he?! He gives skinny little guys like me hope, I listen to BIG BLACK and feel tough, I swear that my biceps become a little bit bigger every time I shout 'CABLES!!!', just look at the before and after photos below and make up your own minds...

...I think the proof is pretty clear, listenening to BIG BLACK definitely makes you a bigger man and listening to BIG BLACK rarities makes you a MASSIVE hulk of a man so if you are a complete wiener you better download the two disc Way Hap Ultimate Rarities set below and make yourself big and strong like me! They are full to the flippin' brim with demos, live stuff, rare compilation songs and even some pre-BIG BLACK Stations songs! I've used massmirror instead of sharebee this time round cause I'm impatient, if you find that it sucks ass tell me in the comments and I'll re-upload them.

Thanks a lot for these rarities! Great job tracking them all down.

Should let you know that disc 2 is missing track 17.

Albini is GOD.

I thought I knew, and had, everything by Big Black, but fuck! I mean FUCK! I've never heard of half this stuff. The Stations stuff; all those demos; Il Duce 12" (was this ever released?).
I'm salivating at the thought of hearing these. Admittedly I probably haven't listened to, or searched for, any Big Black for 3 years. Just reading about them again, and finding something new makes me wanna dig them out and get all nostalgic about this great band.
A truly heartfelt thank you Boxing Duck
Cheers
Anton

NICE! Are you going to Release the Bats on Halloween in London? SHELLAC are playing with OM, Lightning Bolt, Les Savy Fav and the mighty Pissed Jeans who you'll probably like too if you're into Shellac etc.

i'm considering release the bats but i'd only want to see shellac and pissed jeans, i saw shellac at the same venue last year, they were AWESOME! if clockcleaner were playing too i'd crawl up the m4 on my hands and knees!

Stations??!!
In all my years of BIG BLACK fandom (including buying clear glass specs and being in a 2 man 1 drum machine band at school in 1989) I've never heard this stuff...

thank you!!

Interesting. Most of disc one is familiar to me, all of disc two is totally new. Thanks for satisfying my curiosity.

**So is this taken from a real, physical, bootleg factory-manufactured CD set of rarities? Or is this just some kind of mp3 or CDR job compiled by someone at home? I'm curious b/c I've never seen it in shops, even the usual boot outlets.

Any chance of a re-up, Mr Boxing Duck? There are quite a few BB odds & ends on there that I've never even HEARD of. The horror, the horror... IBx

the z-share and badongo links still work, its just the massmirror ones that don't work. :-)

Z-share is pretty useless for the record (seems to just send most folk 'round in ever decreasing circles - literally - these days). Will crank up my Badongo connection in a bit & try again... IBx

Couldn't get any of these links to work, maybe megaupload?

tfrancis said...

The links seem to be working, give them another bash...

icastico said...

He had what they call a passing collection...

Cool stuff.
Thanks (he said hoping the links still work).

peskypesky said...

haven't had a chance to listen to this, as it's still downloading, but i have to thank you in advance, cause i'm sure there's going to be some rad stuff here.

thank you, my man!

Sadly, all these links are dead. I successfully downloaded the Jonathan Richman stuff (really great). I would love it if you could repost the Big Black stuff and I've been searching for some live recordings of Bongwater, but no luck. If you've got any of that, I would be incredible indebted. Thank for the great blog - MEB*

tfrancis said...

the badongo links work for both :-)
