Robert Forster: Sex God (Disc 1 & 2)

Robert Forster: Sex God (Disc 1 & 2)

Despite the dumb title, a sublime collection of Robert Forster out-takes, demos, covers and live tracks! Some great stuff from the GB days too!

A whopping 32 tracks in all!

Grab it now mofos!

All thanks to misha who says;

“Sex God” is a collection of precious bootleg recordings of Robert Forster’s spanning from live recordings dating from 1991 to 1996, and including also some “Danger In The Past” demos. Which means: a lot of stuff, and quite rare too (there seems to be not many Forster’s boots out there from the nineties), and I mean to make a point when I say that, for example, it is a great joy to be able to listen to (what probably is) the first public performance of When she talks about angels (from the “Mark Radcliffe” radio sessions at BBC Radio One), and I personally could never get tired of listening to Danger in the past (the album demos obviously do not sound perfect, but they are very good and of great interest: it is, for instance, captivating to see how I’ve been looking for somebody can sound good also without (that wonderful sounding) piano).

Also among my favourites: the plain, simple solo acoustic rendition of Love is a sign (from Disc 2), Grant Hart’s acoustic 2541 (I actually thought it should have made it to the Intermission Best Of instead of Frisco Depot, and not only because I love Husker Du) and Rock ‘n’ roll friend of course (though nothing can beat the 1987 KCRW radio sessions).
And last (but not least) a big big thank you to Uli who managed to upload this for me (and for you, yeah).
