The The - Four Live Sets 2000

Four Live Sets
2000 World Tour

FM captures + 1 webstream (sound quality VG+ to Ex-) 

ROB SEZ: Massive talent Matt Johnson released the last The The studio album NakedSelf, then promptly embarked on a lengthy world tour in 2000. This is a snapshot of that tour in four sets. Please enjoy.

BIG THANKS to ziggyswoon for sharing, and to nateup2late for sharing, for pointing me to the MBE web stream, and suggesting how to fix the original Melkweg share.
