32 Years Ago: CHRISTIAN DEATH live in Amsterdam

Live at Melkweg, Amsterdam on this day in 1984. A fairly good quality recording, bootlegged in 1989 as Catastrophe Ballet Live.
This was towards the end of their fragmented European tour. The first time playing outside the US. They travelled to Paris 21 February, London’s Batcave and elsewhere in Europe; ending up broke in Berlin by July.

This recording includes the song Theatre of Pain which never made it to a studio album (ff to about 13:30). Musically very close to Mysterium Iniquitatis from Only Theatre of Pain!

Some of the songs from this gig appear on the official Anthology of Live Bootlegs compilation (1990).
