I'm fairly certain that the Newcastle show was a very early performance by the band. There's very little singing and, instead, there's lots of sub-Terry Riley synths and guitars - great stuff all round. The tracks from the SideFX show are the only ones that sounded anywhere near respectable. 

The Pel Mel LP is a weird thing overall - the quirky, colourful cover with Monkees-like poses of the band members on the back gives no real idea of the angst ridden lyrical bent (mainly to do with writers block). This was recorded  at the stage when they picked up wholeheartedly on funk (like many of the bands did at that time). Too bad none of us were very funky. A couple of great songs, though.
