Pulnoc – Live at P.S. 122

If your life has been anything like mine then you have been searching up and down for this bootleg of a live performance from Pulnoc (former Plastic People of the Universe) for years. You’ve been hearing about it from your dad ever since this list was released. At the time your 7-year old brain couldn’t comprehend what was being spoken about, but after hearing about it for years the message sunk in.

I scoured the internet with no luck, searched up and down every independent record store I crossed on my journey over the years through New York, Nashville, California, a couple of places in between and back. Even in fucking Canada I looked for it. I always ended up empty handed. I finally gave up my search only a few years ago, assuming that I would never hear it, and put it in to the list of unobtainable albums along with Cecil Taylor’s complete In Berlin.

And then my dad found it.

Get it. Now. Enjoy.

  1. I am so disappointed that the Pulnoc link to Live at P.S. 122 is broken. Is there any way that I could get a copy of this legendary tape? I can certainly pay you.

    Anyway, thanks for posting this and putting it up. If there other links for downloading this performance, I can’t find them on the Internet.

    If you haven’t by now already, I hope that you do locate Cecil Taylor’s In Berlin.

    Why can’t everything just simply be on Spotify?

    Thank you!


  2. Hey Robert, thanks for checking out the site! Certainly no pay will be necessary, this is the internet after all. I just gotta find the files and I’ll post them back up for you.

    Thanks again!

  3. Thanks so much for being so generous and so prompt in your response. I can’t wait to hear the Pulnoc recordings. As you described on your blog/site, I have also been looking for these tapes, and when I ran into your site after a general search I was incredibly excited to have found the gold!!
    Thanks again!
