Help make my Pulp archive available...?
Permalink  
 


Finally found my Pulp flash drive the other day. 53GB of bootlegs, live stuff, demos, outtakes, visual stuff, etc. Very little of it circulates, especially these days. I want to make it available. It's probably the second or third largest collection of Pulp stuff that anyone outside the group has. It's particularly strong for the 80s stuff. Much less so for 1994 onwards.

Does someone have the ability to set up some sort of site (ftp?) With a password login and an easy way of structuring files so I can upload stuff there in a way that allows stuff to be eaailt findable. Ideally I'd like it so anyone can upload stuff. Double ideally it'd be great if stuff was playable online rather than necessarily needed downloading. We'd need somewhere that could take c100GB of stuff, allowing for other users to upload.

I'd also ideally like this to be really easy for me to be able to do, and for no ownership to sit with me in case anyone has an issue with this idea!
Can this be done?

Mediafire account? Use one of the Bar Italia Yahoo addresses as the login?

Mediafire are choc-full of ads and dodgy, fake 'download' buttons tho, aren't they? I was hoping for something more user friendly and accessible really... And yes, Eamonn. Yes, I know! :)

That sounds terrific! Unfortunately I can't help, I have way too little knowledge of these things.

if there's tedious easy stuff to be done, I'm in :)

Sounds like a lovely idea. What about an unlimited Soundcloud account or a Bandcamp page (if they allow it)?

or a Google account because that allows you to upload to create a structure with folders?

Do you want it where anyone can access the links or would you prefer this to be by registration only? If you set up some DropBoxes or whatever I could put together a page where people can register then when logging on they would see a central index. This would make it easier to find certain material because it would all appear to be in one place despite linking to several DropBoxes

Torrents?

If you separate all the files in the torrent, rather than having "one big zip", then people can pick and choose their favourite tracks, makes it easier at the user side of things.
On the "You uploading it" side of things, it means you'll need to leave something running, but it'll be infinitely better to have folk be able to access "something", rather than have you sit there uploading 50+GB, and then having it be taken down because.. .. that's going to get taken down ;)

The hardest thing would be getting the torrent going to begin with.
Magnet links are super handy for those of us on Virgin Media, who have done a mighty fine job of blocking any/all torrent access!!

I think torrents are only useful when a lot of people are seeding, do you guys expect that there will be that much interest? would be great if so of course...

What formats are your files in?  FLAC? WAV? Or MP3s?

Workupload.com gives 50gb free, no ads or pop ups, reasonable upload speed and fast download. If you don't change any settings files are stored for 6 months after the last download of each. Mega also gives 50gb again no ads or pop ups but does limit the amount an individual can download at a time but does store files permanently. Google drive is 15gb free but will suspend your account if the traffic becomes excessive. Box.com will give you 10gb free but the traffic limit is 10gb per month so if one person downloads everything everyone else is shut out. pcloud.com will also give you 10gb free, if you're willing to pay it gets very good reviews. Mediafire 10gb free but I agree with the earlier posters summary. Dropbox will, like google and one drive, shut down anything creating excessive traffic. Personally I like sync.com a lot but it only gives 5gb free.

And yes I do have all of them.

The easiest way to take advantage of the freebies rather than pay is to split stuff according to year. Then you've also got some protection against loss of files (a filefactory speciality along with slow downloads).

Hope some of this helps, good luck.

Been meaning to post this, I put together a quick prototype website over the weekend. Something like this could serve as a central index so if, as you correctly say above, accounts are blocked due to excessive traffic, it's just a case of changing some of the links on the site. We could also minimise this risk by uploading to a few different locations and providing alt links.

 This looks really good, its a start

Thanks, the links to those 3 shows on there work so feel free to help yourself. If it were a Wordpress site like I have done, then I could give other people access to post on there. That way we could split the load and other people could update the download links if necessary and I'm not available.

Heh, my recording of Barbican '97 there. Too bad I accidentally set the dictaphone to SP instead of LP else we'd have the full set!

I'd hope that Stephen would be able to share his archive in a lossless format. That really would be doing a great service to the community.

 I can see your point but two things to consider. That increases the amount of storage space required by roughly three times and increases the time it takes to upload. Also (and I've been on the receiving end of this) if you're hoping the uploads are going to basically be something for the fans on here then lossless has a habit of ending up on dimeadozen or traders den etc torrent sites where it gets downloaded by anyone and everyone, reupped to the likes of guitars101 and blogs where people use file hosts which generate cashback for them so the hard work of one individual intended for fans could end up lining the pockets of someone who wouldn't know pulp if they knocked on the dooor with a big sign saying "we are pulp". All things to consider.

Yes... I just picked 3 at random from different years to illustrate how it could potentially work and I agree the full set would have been great to hear particularly the full version of "This is Hardcore" which (correct me if I'm wrong) has never been performed with a full orchestra since

Have a look at this:

How great would it be if we could put together the same for Pulp?
