34 Years Ago: CHRISTIAN DEATH live in Amsterdam

Live at the Melkweg club, Amsterdam on this day in 1984. A fairly good quality recording, bootlegged in 1989 as Catastrophe Ballet Live.

This was towards the end of CHRISTIAN DEATH's fragmented European tour; their first time playing outside the US. The band traveled to Paris on 21 February, later to London's Batcave and elsewhere in Europe; ending up broke in Berlin by July.

The set includes the song "Theatre of Pain", which never made it to a studio album. Musically very close to "Mysterium Iniquitatis" from Only Theatre of Pain.

Some of the songs from this gig appear on the official Anthology of Live Bootlegs compilation (1990).
