Mordred bootlegs

Such treasures are few and far between unfortunately, but back in the '80s when tape trading was a serious and fun business, thousands of fans of heavy metal traded cassetess of live shows and demo's across the world. Demo's and bootlegs of Mordred are pretty scarce, but I do own a few which would certainly be of interest to the band, they are as follows:

OPEN AIR - band name spelt 'MORDERED' on the side of the cd!

17 tracks, running time 77 mins over two nights, recorded 1992 to 30,000 people.


Track listing: 1) The Strain 2) Every Day's A Holiday 3) Esse Quam Videri 4) Johnny The Fox 5) Queen Of A Broken Throne - then breaks into Reach ( different lyrics) 6) Falling Away 7) Spectacle Of Fear 8) Numb 9) Progress 10) Death Or Glory 11) In This Life 12) Close Minded 13) Reach 14) High Potency 15) West County Hospital 16) State Of Mind 17) I Know
Unfortunately, the track listing on the back of the case is extremely confusing!

Any chance of getting MP3 copies of those discs/tapes from you? I'm a HUGE Mordred fan, and would LOVE to hear them.

And they played MMF? BUGGER ME. I lived in Madison in those days and would have killed to see them live!!

Anyway, if you get this, hit me up at digitalted (at) gmail (d0t) (c0m).
