Peter Murphy passed through NY last week for a 2-night stint on his Secrete Cover tour. I made the first of the two NYC shows. (BTW: If someone caught the second night or both, please fill me in.) This particular show featured largely newer material along with several covers including a cover of David Bowie’s Major Tom, several Bauhaus selections, as well as a new song (that sounded great) that was recently recorded for an upcoming album. Peter Murphy also dropped the Joy Division cover of “Transmission” that was posted on TSOI sometime back (I recommend seeking it out).
This is one of the many great tunes off of Cascade which I have mentioned before as perhaps the best of Peter Murphy’s albums. To date I have neglected to post a track to make my case. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Exhibit A.[audio: http://www.thesoundofindie.com/archive/2009/20090721/PM-Disappearing.mp3|titles=Disappearing (Live)|artists=Peter Murphy]
