Ah yes, it is time for Mediocre Monday! Today’s tape sounds like hot garbage but it is one of only 2 Pirates of Venus live recordings known to exist. POV had members of Verbal Abuse, Decry and Rat’s Ass (Pat Strattford) from Tales of Terror on vocals. Great band who imploded before they could even get going.
The funny thing is that I probably could have asked to tape through the board and been fine with it. I now know D.I. didn’t mind… but back then, we thought these guys were BIG stars and there would be no way to do that. Derp.
The venue had power issues during POV’s set so there is a lot of downtime in the set. Special appearance by Katie Parker and Izzy yelling into my mic during a stoppage.
