A great radio broadcast of one of the final appearances by TSC. They would do three dates in Japan in the summer of '89 before that much maligned appearance at the Royal Albert Hall in July. Here in the US, we really had no idea that the end of TSC was near and were awaiting the next LP with much anticipation. Unfortunately, there would be a very silent three year gap for us between Confessions and the release of Weller's solo debut. There's no doubt I would have really liked the Modernism LP had it been released.
Looking back now it's most assuredly quite dated. But, as TSC always seemed to progress into new territory with each record, it would have not really been as surprising to me as it obviously was to those, as legend would have it, ripping up their programs at the Albert Hall. So, I hope you enjoy this VERY RARE look at what you might have seen had that last record been released and TSC made a tour stop in your part of the world. -Original
