Samhain- Mabuhay Gardens, San Francisco Ca. 5/11/85 xfer from low gen audio tape Danzig Misfits Punk

Well, here is something interesting. I have been a huge misfits/Samhain etc fan for 35 years– getting into them in early 1986, just in time to miss this show. I have never seen this show circulated, on any trade lists, or even heard a rumor of its existence until Eric told me he had it. This show doesn’t sound great, but it appears to be due to the sound in the club that night. When I EQ’d the show, it sounded like a pro walkman recording after I mixed some of the yuck out of it. This might have been taped by Verne Inhell, but no confirmation.
I really want to hear from The Fastbacks- one of my favorite bands! Why were you picked to open, I wonder. What an odd pairing- You are the least evil band I know. Any good stories out of this one? Any rock star tantrums? Man, I wish I had a recording of The Fastbacks’ set as well.
