I created and shared these files some 5 years ago as part of a 32 show IQ series from the early 80's and on noticing how poor my share ratio had become decided to put some of these up on Dime in the hope that it might make a difference! :-)

I'm sure lots of people may have these already but you never know! I've searched the dead torrents and can't see that they have been on Dime before - apologies to the moderators if that's not the case.

I attach below the original comments I made at the time. Some art was created for this series after it was launched and I've added it.

Original Comments

This is a direct transfer from 20 year old first generation recordings on good old TDK AD90 cassettes. An audience recoding via a stereo microphone to a Sony Recording Walkman. The transfer was from tape deck (Aiwa AD-F800) to Audio CD recorder, then EAC to WAV to FLAC.

The recording levels are quite quiet and there is audible tape hiss throughout but this is a good show.

This was the second of 3 consecutive nights at the Marquee. The boys took the opportunity to play around with the set on all 3 nights making for very different shows.

The set startlingly opened with one of the newies (Magic Roundabout) and featured the return of the long absent Lens classic, Dans le parc... as well as IASH. Enemy and Gateway were (once again) swapped so that the latter became the set closer.

2 encores this night, the first being another bit of Lens madness 'Stomach of Animal'.

IQ played a number of Marquee headlines during 1984 and included a cover as one of the encores for most of them - this night was no different with, as per the previous night, a rendition of U2's 'New Years Day' (albeit a bit premature!).
