I am currently listening to The Flux bootleg from 1999... and thinking to myself - I reckon I could make this sound better - with my tech and musical mixing know-how!

It's got all of those awesome unreleased songs on it too and is a bit different from the Pulp we tend to love...

I'll see what I can do with it - Obviously - I'll post the results here... but thought i should ask...:

a) is anyone bothered?

b) I've had various copies of this bootleg since 1999 - but my currrent version cuts out during 'Blue Girls' - i think i got it from a post on here...
Does anyone have a copy that doesn't cut out during 'Blue Girls'? If not then I'll try to mix it togetther anyway - just thought it might be worth asking before I try!

a) Yes
b) There is a copy where someone has manually repaired the gap in "Blue Girls" by copying and pasting the same part from earlier in the song. As far as I know, there isn't a copy without the gap because that's when the bootlegger turned his tape over

I'm going to get on this at the weekend. Hopefully the results will be worth to avoid me looking like a right nerb!

"Nerb" - It's Northumberland speak for "nob" - I'm not from Northumberland - I just like it. OK - I'm getting on it now - but bare in mind - it might be shite!

It's not that exciting!

I've done it anyway - I'm not sure if it sounds much different to the origianl to be honest. I really just wanted to do something with the "new" songs they played and 'Blue Girls'.

i think it might sound a bit warmer and I've tried to get rid of the "essing" on Jarvis' vocals and maybe soom of the room echo on the whole thing.

I've left the last 2 tracks - This Is Hardcore and Dishes - more or less the same as the original

I'll upload it somewhere shortly and provide a link... as i say, you'd have to be pretty hardcore to tell the difference but I like this bootleg and it was fun messing around with it!

I've sent all the tracks to the BarItaila2007 account - if anyone knows how better to share them - so be it - My only request - They are all big wav. files and that's the way they should stay!

Gave it a listen and it's definitely an improvement! Thanks for the hard work.

(On another note, I had never listened to the full thing before so I didn't know about this more guitar-based version of This Is Hardcore, it's great!)

The intro to "The Fear" has always made me laugh because nobody knows what it is until Jarvis starts singing

To be honest - I forgot there were so many old track rearranged on this before I set out to do it. I thought it was basically the "new" songs plus Blue Girls.

I've made it a bit easier to download here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/bcbb1tsqtgru93f/AAAr6g3wJqkv9FOP9_Ai9hNla?dl=0

but I'll have to delete it in a couple of days as I will need the space on my Dropbox.
