Hi Richie,

The numbers are the hex code for an apostrophe, the filename is Big City Bash Derby '96 but the ' is being converted. Not sure of the original date, unfortunately.

Hey! Jake,

Just visiting some old haunts (as it were) and was really happy to see that you had got around to posting this gig you mentioned you had. Thanks a lot for posting it, listening to it now, sounds good.. Would I be correct in assuming the last four digits in the download links (2796) is the actual date (02.07.1996) ?

Thanks again,

Presenting, an (afaik) unreleased recording of Cable playing The Big City Bash in 1996!

This tape, handed to me by Steven Battelle (ex LostAlone and Derby resident), was recorded by his mum from the radio broadcast of the gig (whilst he was front row at the gig). The tape's nearly 20 years old, and recorded from radio. Do not expect a soundboard quality recording!

You can download the audio in Apple Lossless or FLAC format, whichever you prefer—

Apple Lossless


I've been meaning to put this up for years, sorry for the delay. I hope someone finds it interesting!
Big thanks to Steven Battelle for personally entrusting me with this tape!


Amazing thanks for sharing, can't wait to listen. This gig was actually the first time I saw cable live. For those not from Derby The big bash was an annual full weekend of music in the town centre. If I remember correctly the Saturday was all pop music and let loose were the headliners that day. Thankfully Sunday was better local music day. Gorilla, beekeepers played and cable headlined. The mosh pit for cable was mental
