A Stay of Execution: MP3, You're a Hard One to Kill

After receiving many many emails from readers making some very compelling points, I have decided to retain the MP3 links on Killing Moon posts. I realize a lot of you out there suffer with internet connections that make it next to impossible to download the large FLAC files, and there is also the issue of metered internet access looming on the horizon. I may revisit this at some point, but for the time being, I will post both FLACs and MP3s. While I encourage everyone to learn the basics relating to lossless music files, The Killing Moon is one of the few lossless blogs that posts both file formats, and I would hate to lose what makes this blog distinctive. Thank you for your input on this decision. Now on with the music!        ~ voixautre

  2. Horny wears a frown, if the blog ever does become lossless only, I would still post MP3s for albums unavailable in lossless

  3. Eye have some Smiths bootlegs from 84-85 live in Los Angeles and U.K. they are mp3 and sound pretty good. It sounds just like the album, pretty awesome. Southern Death Cult is next to impossible to find in flac. It is the Cult before they were called the Cult, got their self-titled in mpeg layer three. Man been runnin' and gettin' it done since 5am time to unwind and enjoy some lossless. Gonna scoop up that Siouxsie Sioux and thanka you.

  5. Dug into some crates in the hall of archives and found those Smiths. It is Apollo Oxford U.K. 3-18-85, soundboard quality. Other one is Los Angeles 08-26-86. Both are 160kbps but sounds way better than that. Oxford one is best and is called "Before Love."
