Revenge \ No Pain No Gain (Live 1991) [LTMCD 2413]

No Pain No Gain is live album by Revenge, the electro/hard rock hybrid fronted by Peter Hook of Joy Division/Nerw Order between 1989 and 1992.

The set captures the band at their live peak in 1991. The first 8 tracks are an entire performance at Manchester's Cities in the Park festival in August 1991. The remainder 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 album includes storming covers of Dreams Never End (New Order), White Light/White Heat (Velvet Underground) and Citadel (Rolling Stones).

All tracks are digitally mastered. Sleevenotes by New Order biographer Claude Flowers, including a new 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" (, 05/2005)
