Revenge \ No Pain No Gain (Live 1991) [LTMCD 2413]
The first live album by Revenge, the electro/hard rock hybrid fronted by New Order bass player Peter Hook between 1989 and 1992.
No Pain No Gain captures the band at their live peak in 1991. The first 8 tracks represent an entire performance at Manchester's Cities in the Park festival in August 1991, while the remainder of the CD is culled from a show in Kawasaki, Japan, several months later. In addition to high-octane versions of Revenge originals such as Slave, State Of Shock and Jesus I Love You, the CD and download includes storming covers of Dreams Never End (New Order), White Light/White Heat (Velvet Underground) and Citadel (Rolling Stones).

All tracks digitally mastered. Sleevenotes by New Order biographer Claude Flowers, including interview with Peter Hook.
"Nice to hear Dreams Never End (an early New Order track) and Hooky chattering away inbetween songs. As with all LTM releases this comes with astounding sound quality (no bootleg quality here, sir!) and informative sleevenotes" (Amazon.com, 05/2005)
