Pirates of Venus- The Farm, SF 12/28/86 xfer from master tape! Audio Only Tales of Terror

I have a ton of stuff to post, but I bumped this one to the front of the line for a friend. Andy Andersen (former Attitude Adjustment/Condemned Attitude/Attitude/Two Bit Thief vocalist) called me yesterday and we reminisced for about an hour. He saw me in the Crowdshot movie and got back in touch with me! It was nice to hear from him again! Andy asked about POV, and he was surprised that I had recordings of them. POV had members of Verbal Abuse, Decry and Rat’s Ass (Pat Strattford) from Tales of Terror on vocals. They were probably my favorite late-80’s “rock and roll” act that came out in the wake of Guns and Roses’ success. This was recorded on a very unprofessional Panasonic handheld recorder. Don’t expect perfect quality.

Neurosis- The Farm, San Francisco Ca 12/27/86 xfer from low gen soundboard tape rebalance

This tape is a bit of a mystery. I asked Wayne V where it came from, and it’s not clear. He was trading at the time with Chris Dodge, Mark Martin, and a few others. I found that this didn’t come from Chris or Markā€¦ so the most plausible source is Tim Yohannon. Wayne used to go over to the MRR house and copy as many tapes as possible, and the way that the tape is hurriedly marked makes it look like it came from there. That’s pretty cool.

Final Conflict- The Farm, San Francisco Ca 12/27/86 xfer from low gen audio cassette

This is another James R Edmonds creation- at times, he would borrow a microphone from the soundman and do an audience recording with the mic lined into a boombox. That’s the case with this one. Sounds pretty decent- it clearly has more clean low end than a typical 80s punk rock audience recording.

Bl’ast! – The Farm, San Francisco Ca 12/27/86 xfer from master soundboard cassette rebalanced BLAST

It’s going to be old Farm week here, apparently. This is another soundboard master from James R. Edmonds’ collection. This 3 and a half minute clip is all that exists- it seems that tape was started then stopped. Also, there is pretty much no guitar in the mix- they must have been blasting volume from the stage. I did my best to bring up guitars, but you can’t do much when there is nothing there. Despite all of this, Bl’ast master board from 1986! C’mon, that’s awesome!!

Impulse Manslaughter- The Farm, San Francisco Ca 12/27/86 xfer from master soundboard cassette rebal

Here come 3 sets (or partial sets) from Day at the Farm 3, courtesy of James Edmonds. He worked at the Farm and recorded shows through the board there occasionally.
First up is Impulse Manslaugter out of Chicago. They were one of two touring bands to play this DATF. The mix was really clean on this one, so I was able to bring up the guitar and bass. Big thanks to James for trusting me with the master tapes.

Condemned Attitude- KALX live in studio 12/15/86 xfer frm 2nd gen audio cassette Attitude Adjustment

After I posted the Soup KALX show, DJ Last Will asked me if I had any other KALX live in studio tapes. I didn’t have any from shows that he hosted, but here is Condemned Attitude in their 2nd appearance ever, after splitting from Attitude Adjustment.
Condemned Attitude were Andy Andersen, Chris Scaparro, Keith Chatham, Rick Strahl, plus a few drummers (may have been Eric Brecht at this time). They then morphed into Attitude, then Two-Bit Thief.
This has a little reception static and the mix fluctuates. It sounds like they were playing pretty loud for an in studio.

Hi Everyone, it’s Kilslug Sunday! Here is the last in this series of Kilslug shows, again from Boston. Man, I wish they would have played California at some point. This coming week, I plan to pull out some single cam & multicam videos that we filmed/finished editing but for one reason or another never posted. It should be a good time.
