I usually post Video on weekends but I had a busy day, so you get this. The audio quality isn’t great, but I think I was at this show and I know that a lot of my friends were there too. The quality gets really awful about 15min in, but then it improves for the rest of the show. Flyer image courtesy of Ken Doose

Here is an EARLY but cool post today. I was good friends with the guys in condemned attitude so they lent me their copy of the vhs tape of the show. I also got a soundboard tape either from them, or in trade from Ron Quintana. Now that we have good hardware (vhs decks and cassette decks) and software(Adobe premiere and neat video, isotope rx), we can make this one somewhat better than before.

Here’s something fun- MANY years back (about 34 years), Andy lent me a few of his VHS tapes. This clip of pure insanity was on one of the tapes. This is Andy’s footage from before the River Thtr show with Cryptic Slaughter, Condemned Attitude, Attitude Adjustment and Wehrmacht. There is also footage from after the show- the drive back and the return that night to KUSF studios where Keith Chatham is talking about the Condemned LP and Ron and Harald are DJ’ing. SO MANY people to mention on here- Ron, Harald, Andy, Keith, Toby Rage?, Tony the due?, Sherwood, Jeff Becerra, Sacrilege. All being completely nuts, making fun of skinheads, and many stream of consciousness interviews. Just classic.

The clearout of the hard drive continues. I think this was during the early days of Gilman where they would not announce the bands- people were expected to just show up and see who played that night. If this is the right show (I digitized this months ago), you can hear Andy joking about it. This board mix was super thin and tinny, and it sounded sped up to me. I slowed it down by 7% and it STILL sounds fast, but it is hard to tell with Andy’s vocal delivery. I boosted bass(+5), Drums (+1) and guitar(+5) in Izotope RX8. I also dropped about 3db off the highs because it was so bright.

Here’s a short one today- I transferred this one a while back because the day before, C.O.C. played Sacramento and my tape is marked as Mike Dean’s last show… but you can hear Mike on backing vocals here during “Eye for an Eye”. The old analog tape trading days were full of inaccuracies, bad dates and wrong venue names/cities. It was like a huge game of telephone, but taking place via USPS. Anyway, this is likely low gen since the gilman soundboard trading circle was small in the late 80s. The mix is heavy on drums and vocals, so I tried to rebalance the best I could.

In remembrance of Reed Mullin, I’ll be posting a few C.O.C. shows over the next few days. The first one is one that I know Jeff Arellano (Gus Buss) will be happy to see- he proclaimed this show to be the best C.O.C. show ever. I usually have good lineage info on Sacramento recordings, but this one is a bit of a mystery. It does not appear to be one of the tapes I got from Mark Martin’s collection. It looks like I might have traded with someone outside of sacramento for it… but there is very little tape hiss. Odd.
