New Model Army: Like A Storm (Live '89)


Despite being in the thin of things in the isolated burg of Winnipeg, I managed to hear each of the New Model Army albums (roughly) as they came out. Each one grabbed me and shook me but 1989's Thunder and Consolation was utterly devastating.

This bootleg from The Rock Cafe in Nottingham, is from the incredible Thunder and Consolation tour, which to my eternal joy, actually made it out to Winnipeg!

  2. Thanks for this - Saw the Army a lot around about this time - Still prefer Stuart Morrow on Bass tho

  3. Never a must hear for me, but they always delivered at least one or two songs per album that I thought were utterly unique and essential.

  4. My favorite was No Rest for the Wicked.

    I saw them in Santa Fe, NM in 1986 (87?) for the Ghost of Cain tour. Truly one of the best live bands around.

  5. I honestly don't know what my favourite NMA album is. It can change on a daily basis. Lately I've been listening to The Love Of Hopeless Causes - a very underated album imo.

  6. Saw them loads of times always really good. "Ghost of Cain" and "Thunder and Consolation" are great albums. Thanks mate.

  7. still get to see them as often as i can,they have some of the most loyal fans in the world,and are one of the only bands who still move forward and after 30 years are still writing and playing original music not just playing there past albums.lidge 84

  8. Hi Jeffen, many thanks for all the good music posted on your mighty fine blog. Lots of useful and interesting information too. Seeing that you lately posted some folk influenced british records with biting social commentary from the 80's, encouraged me to comment here with a request - there was a record by a band called Gone to earth, called "Vegetarian bullfighter" that I have on vinyl, but would love to be able to burn on cd. As far as I know it was never reissued in that form, which is too bad. I know it's slim chances, but thought I'd try here. Hope the summer is treating you well,

    The band sure sounded like a whole different animal with Morrow on bass.

    I understand but man, some day go back and listen to T & C it's devestating.

    "No Rest" was always one of my fave NMA songs.
    (Couldn't open the link - not sure why...)

    I just missed them here in Wpg about a year ago and I'm kicking myself now.

    Yeah they just seem to keep moving, it's a hard trick to pull off in rock n' roll.

    No luck yet on gone to earth I'll keep an eye out) but if it fits the theme I'd love to add it.

  13. Extremely hard question...

    Sometimes No Rest
    Sometimes T & C

    I agree with the above that Love of Hopeless Causes is underrated.

    Bad Old World is one of my favorites.

  14. Impurity simply because it was the first NMA album I heard.
