This is the earliest known recorded gig by the Go4, almost certainly on 24.02.1979 at the London Nashville (see http://gang-of-four-gigography.blogspot.de/2012/05/london-nashville-2421979.html). The recording is essential largely because of three exceptional tracks played:

I'm waiting for my elevator (*)
Hold Up My Weekend (I'm not stewing steak) (**)
It's her factory (unique lyrics)

(*) = only known to have been played at 24.02.79 Nashville, 02.03.1979 Amsterdam Paradiso and 31.12.1980 New York City, Hurrah's. Track also covered live by the Mekons. Never re-recorded in the studio. For the Hurrah's and Mekons' versions, see http://darkcircleroom4.blogspot.com/2012/06/gang-of-four-i-found-that-essence-rare.html.

(**) = track on 1978 demos, Nashville is only known live performance. Never re-recorded, the track was based on a bad joke about limp dicks ("hold up my weak end")

The unique lyrics to It's Her Factory are in the comments over at voodoo.

By the way, Peter, you wouldn't have an upgrade to this, would you? Silent has posted the version I have (80 MB) ...

cheers, Dave Sez.
