Sentinel Beast- Helvetia Park, Sacramento Ca. 6/22/85 Master Cassette Transfer

I finally got my audio transfer setup working again. Man, that was a pain in the ass. I now know how the EMU 1212M audio card, Patchmix DSP, and Reaper work together. Also Insert/send. Anyway, this was the first concert I ever recorded. My memory is fuzzy on this show- I think we got there after Redrum played, and I asked if they had the demo for sale. They sold their last one to some guy. They introduced me to him, and that is how I met Ken Doose. Then a year or so later, Ken introduced me to Mark Martin, and the live archiving thing really took off. I guess this show was a catalyst for all of that. This was recorded on a super cheap boom box- I can’t believe this sounds so non-shitty. It’s not good, but it is listenable.

Redrum- Skate Tough or Die Demo, LIVE El Dorado Saloon, Sacramento Ca 6/4/85 xfer from band archive

I LOVE Sacramento! I am so proud of everyone who showed up to protest the injustice we have seen. I might go on a run of “locals only” for a bit here. I also listened to Pressure Point while working out today which compounded the feeling.

Since there was some discussion about this show and debate about whether Redrum actually opened the show or not… here is proof. This is a transfer from Mike Parisi’s tape. I have 2 other copies of this show, but I did not get time to see which one was best.
This show has some CLASSIC banter from Carlos Yniguez. I swear, we gave him shit over this tape for at least 5 years after the show. Any time anything went wrong, we would exclaim “what is this f*cking thing?”. So much fun.
PS: Strangest drum sound EVER on a soundboard tape.
