Two excellent FM radio broadcasts, presented together because they were made just eight days apart, both in Europe and they were on the same tape. The Mission were probably in their prime at this point - playing very tight after the best part of a year touring, and before excesses (personal and musical) caused the cracks to form in the band. There was a part of 'Wasteland' on the Gothenburg show, but the DJ started talking over it, and didn't stop, so I left it out. There's a cut in 'Serpents Kiss' from the Tilburg show to remove 90 seconds of very loud radio static, which completely drowned out the song. 'Wake' fades out as the DJ talked over the rest of the song.
