Occasionally we get requests for something completely unheard from very early in the tale. This is about as early as it gets…  a band practice track called ‘Der Rodeo’ from June 1981, less than one month after the live debut of Hunters and Collectors. Recorded at none other than the Seaview Ballroom.

Back in late 1982, Hunters and Collectors followed up their self titled EP with the Payload EP, along with a remarkable sonic improvement on the vinyl. Only one of the four EP tracks has not appeared live in The Vault so far — Droptank! Thank the ultra observant fan Matthew for suggesting this one!
