The Chills - Smile From a Dead Dead Face - Melbourne, Australia 6/9/90

Found this rather high quality 1990 Chills bootleg show on a torrent recently. True, it's an audience recording, but pretty impeccable nevertheless, save for the very beginning of "Night Of Chill Blue" missing, and a tape flip, which you can read about in the notes. A setlist to die for, from what was arguably the Chills peak. The exact venue name was apparently unbeknownst to the individual that arranged this, but boy, they did a bang up job on the artwork. Hope ya like.

01 - Night Of Chill Blue
02 - Dan Destiny And The Silver Dawn
03 - I Love My Leather Jacket
04 - Part Past Part Fiction
05 - Familiarity Breeds Contempt

Hey man, saw them 3 times in one week back in 1990 when I lived in NYC. Did I ever tell you my Chills story? Let's just say, I wish I knew how to play keyboards!

90% sure it was a venue called The Club on Smith Street in Melbourne. I think I may have even been there and I'm trying to figure it out but my tour poster of the gig is at my parents house! The show I saw back then is to this day one of my favourite ever...
