Hi Everyone! It is a very special episode of Mediocre Monday today.
A couple of weeks back, I drove to SF and had lunch with Wayne VanderKuil. He brought his tapes along so I could start digitizing his collection. Wayne was one of a small handful of people who were taping back in the early days of Bay Area thrash/punk/crossover. He started in the early to mid 80s and is responsible for a bunch of the master tapes from Ruthie’s Inn, Rock on Broadway, Gilman and many more. Big thanks to Wayne for trusting me with his collection!
It’s a mediocre Monday post only because of the quality- none of us had professional equipment back then, so some recordings lacked dynamic range or were distorted. This is one that is super rare, but a bit distorted. Here is the 2nd show ever from Neurosis. The flyer had no address, so he had to drive around and listen for the noise. Thankful he found the place. 🙂
