RKL- The Farm, San Francisco 4/27/86 xfer from band archive master cassette R.K.L. Rich Kids on LSD

Happy Mediocre Monday everyone. This one is only mediocre because the board mix was not good… not good at all. I had to rebalance it and it is still only so-so. The tape’s rarity and source make it pretty damned cool actually.
This was from an amazing Day at the Farm with 6 of my favorite bands at the time- what a show!

Toxic Reasons- The Farm, San Francisco Ca. 4/27/86 Audio Only Soundboard xfer low gen tape Zero Boys

Here’s another nice sounding board tape from Eric Mcintire’s collection. The band plays a killer set and they even played a couple Zero Boys songs at the end- apparently they had one of the members of the band touring with them. Great set.
By the way, there are over 30 of Eric’s tapes that I am working now. I am posting the shows that sound good enough right now, without the need for post production. Expect more later- possibly even enhanced versions of stuff I have already posted.

RKL- V.I.S. Club, San Francisco 4/5/86 xfer from band archive cassette tape Rich Kids on LSD R.K.L.

Huge thanks to Barry Ward for giving the OK for this one to be posted. It is really cool to hear some early RKL sets that sound pretty decent, quality-wise. Punk recordings from the mid-80s were usually sketchy at best.
I looked for way too long for a photo of the VIS, which is now The Independent. The best I could find was a pic of the club in 1991, when it was the Kennel Club.

RKL- Ruthie’s Inn, Berkeley Ca. 4/4/86 xfer from band archive cassette R.K.L. Rich Kids on LSD

It’s mediocre Monday everybody! Gotta love work stress. This show is definitely mediocre quality, but it is so funny. The flyer shows a Beer Drinker’s Night promotion, where you get admission and a drink ticket for $6. It was pretty clear that the people around the recorder were pretty hammered- it was like listening to a party with RKL playing in the background.
Still awesome due to the rarity- from Barry Ward’s archive.

Venom- City Gardens, Trenton NJ. 4/2/86 Audio Only xfer from 2nd gen from Rollins’ tape Black Metal

The biggest Venom fan I have ever met(virtually or otherwise), Joseph Reinsbach, messaged me and introduced himself in late February. He let me know that this Venom show was uncirculated, which was surprising. So he waited for 3 months, through my shoulder surgery and other projects, and I was finally able to lift and pull the trays off the shelf and digitize the tapes for him. It was split over 3 tapes and I am not sure if this is the complete show of what was circulating at the time.
Here is the background on this recording:
On April 2nd 1986 Venom played a gig together with Black Flag at City Gardens in Trenton, New Jersey. Legend has it that Black Flag roadie Joe Cole recorded the entire show and cut all the songs out of Venom’s set except for a few seconds of intros and outros, leaving behind the between-song stage banter of Venom’s frontman Cronos. In 1991 Ecstatic Peace released the result on a 7”.
This is 45min of that show.
Joe and Henry were best friends. So if the above is true, this is probably a 2nd gen from master tape or 3rd if Rollins had a copy of Joe’s tape.

PS: $6.66 at the door. HAHA! I hope Randy Now had 34 cents times about 500 ready.
