Bad Brains- The Farm, San Francisco Ca. 11/28/86 Audio Only xfer from Master audiotape Live

Here’s a show that many people still talk about, even now. We don’t know who recorded this, but it was obviously done with a pro walkman. Sounds pretty decent for a 1986 punk audience recording.

Audio Live Concert

Soup- Live in KALX Studio, Berkeley Ca. 11/16/86 xfer from low gen audio cassette East Bay Punk

Here’s another one that Todd Pritchard pulled from Jason Ross’ collection when he was here a while back. This one starts with low levels, then too high, and then it gets good about 2 minutes in. Awesome early, pre-Gilman east bay punk artifact!
Last Will, how did you feel about all of the profanity on your show? Did you get any follow up calls from the FCC? It was hilariously shocking to hear all of that happen.

Audio Live Performance

Slayer- El Dorado Saloon, Sacramento Ca. 11/5/86 xfer from 1st gen audio tape Remixed Main Set

Thanks to Ken Doose for posting this flyer yesterday and starting some conversation around this show.
As I have talked about before, my friend Matt Polish was friends with the band. He toured with them in 1985 and by this time, he had gone to L.A. to hang with Jeff multiple times. So we got there early and went right back onto the NEW tour bus supplied by Def American. We step in there, and here are the guys in Slayer partying hard, and listening to… rap music? We were totally dumbfounded- what the fuck is this? It turned out that they had an advance tape of Beastie Boys’ License to Ill and they were BLASTING it as they partied on the bus. They were reciting every lyric. This was months before the Beasties were well known, and before Anthrax’ rap collaborations. Rap and metal at the time did NOT mix. It was one of the most hilariously jarring moments I have ever experienced. After an hour or so of goofing off, they got dressed and played this show. So funny.
No encores were recorded. I don’t know why.

Audio Live Concert

Fishbone- Mississippi Nights, St. Louis Mo. 11/5/86 xfer from master VHS off studio Umatic

There are still a LOT of VHS tapes to be digitized (over 1,000) over here. I have done some as people have asked for things, but I have not started to do them all yet. Someone posted a link of the well-circulated Fishbone show from St. Louis 1986 and I noticed that the quality of the show on youtube is not very good, and the show is incomplete. So, I guess I’ll need to get to posting some of these.
This is the 1 hour version of the show that includes interview clips with the band. This came from KDHX directly- this is a VHS tape right off of their 1/4″ master tape. Huge thanks to Jim Utz & Dede Schofield for giving these to me 20ish(30?) years ago.
