B.G.K.- Club Can’t Tell, Sacramento Ca 10/25/86 xfer from master cassette BGK

Happy mediocre Monday! I bet a bunch of you are tired, sore and voiceless due to Aftershock. I hope you had a good time. I didn’t go this year, so no 2022 Aftershock videos coming from me.
Here is a live show taped by Mark Martin back in 86. BGK opening for 7 seconds. Quality isn’t great, but neither was the recorder. Or the venue’s acoustics.

Verbal Assault- Club Can’t Tell, Sacramento Ca 10/25/86 xfer from master cassette

Verbal Assault is coming to Sacramento for the first time since 1986! I saw that they had reunited a while back, but I didn’t think they would ever make it back here. Huge props to Scott Torguson (and Chris Lemos of course) for making it happen.
Here is a mediocre recording of their last time playing here, opening for 7 Seconds on a stacked bill. Stew could book those awesome lineups.
PS: There are 2 versions of this flyer. I have an actual poster of the other version, autographed by 7 Seconds… but I can’t find my 11×17 poster folio right now. D’oh!

Thin White Rope- Vis Club, San Francisco Ca 10/24/86 xfer from unknown gen audiotape soundboard

I hope everyone is staying safe and well during this surreal time.

Since I am one handed now. I used my remaining good one to pull one of my cassette trays off the top of the shelves here. I found all kinds of GOOD stuff. Here is an old soundboard recording of TWR from the Vis in 1986. I just learned today that The Vis was the same building as the Kennel Club in the late 80s/90s, and is now The Independent.

This one sounds pretty damned good. I was able to use Izotope to boost the bass (as much as possible) and boost 1 guitar. I got lucky with the guitar- the program doesn’t always isolate the guitar… both guitars are not perfectly balanced, but there wasn’t much I could do about it.

Show starts with a 1 song soundcheck, then the show.

One last thing- I have around 90 TWR listings on the audio list on the sacramentomusicarchive.com website. I’ll need to get to them all someday

Tragic Mulatto- Mabuhay Gardens, San Francisco Ca 10/24/86 xfer from 1st gen soundboard cassette

This one comes from Radley Hirsch- he gave a copy of his master soundboard tape to Anonymous back in the late 80s. Pretty nice mix, so I didn’t attempt a rebalance.
For the uninitiated, Tragic Mulatto were an art punk band that released a few things on Alternative Tentacles back in the 80s.

Megadeth- Henry J. Kaiser Conv Ctr, Oakland Ca. 10/10/86 xfer from 1st? gen Audiotape

I transferred this one a few weeks ago but I assumed it sounded like hot garbage so I wasn’t going to post. It is not that bad for a 1986 audience tape in a room with poor acoustics.
From the sound of the tape, it sounds like it was mastered by Ricky (flat/no low end but somewhat clear). If so, it is a 1st gen.
