Scream- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 10/31/87 xfer from master audiotape with GROHL from NIRVANA

OK, I finally got sony soundforge back up and running on my PC- that was a nightmare.
So “Anonymous” went to Gilman on Halloween 1987 and saw Scream play. They had Dave Grohl playing drums at the time. I transferred the original D90 with my Nak Dragon, then remixed it and boosted the hell out of the bass since the original recording was a bit tinny.

Kwik Way- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 10/31/87 xfer from master audiotape

From what I can tell, it looks like “Anonymous” taped the entire Kwik Way opening set, but then Scream (headliner) played longer than 45 minutes, so he had to tape over the start of Kwik Way’s set with the end of the Scream set. Here is all that survived. I checked youtube and there appears to be no live Kwik Way at all.

RKL- KCSB, Isla Vista Ca 10/31/87 xfer from band archive master cassette Rich Kids on LSD R.K.L.

I had an hour in between meetings so I popped this in to listen/digitize, and I enjoyed it so much I figured I would post it today. This is a different than the KCSB tape from 1985 that has been well-circulated amongst traders since the 1980s. This is a very raw, kick ass set of mostly newer songs at the time. It this Joe Raposo’s first “show”? I hear Jason introduce the new bass player.
Again, I need to give a huge thanks to Barry Ward for sending these tapes my way, and good idea to bring the 120 minute tape to record the set- otherwise, it would have cut off at 45 min.
The Nak usually freaks out with 120min tapes (it doesn’t like the thin tapes), but it transferred just fine. A few little imperfections at the start, then all good.

Alex Chilton- Backdoor, SDSU, San Diego Ca. 10/29/87 xfer from 2nd gen cassette Big Star Live

Man, would I hate to be a facebook employee today. It sounds like someone made a huge mistake over there and screwed up their IP routing, which then made their internal network non-functional, locking employees out of the building. So, if you were having a bad monday, there are others who have it worse.
Here’s another Alex Chilton set. Here’s what the biggest AC fan I know, Ross Weyman, had to say about it:
Another great Alex show – lots from the High Priest album which was one of my favs. With a few surprises like “Barrooms to Bedrooms” by David Willis (apparently some old country tune – lol – he had a knack). I’ll keep an eye out for your requests . Setlist is as follows:

Redrum- Lite Rail Inn, Sacramento Ca 10/10/87 xfer from master audio tape Thrash Metal

What an odd show. It starts out with the PA just hissing loudly, and then when the band starts playing, you can’t hear Carlos. I guess the P.A. blew before they went on. That probably explains the 28 minute set length. If you ever wanted to perform Redrum karaoke, here’s your chance. The tape sounds good and the band is pretty tight- this is probably the best live intro to Blood Sucking Freaks I have ever heard.
Oh, and we were clearly stoked about being “signed” to Metal Blade (for 1 song), as we mention it multiple times during the show. Carlos says that the band is going into the studio on Tuesday to record that track for Metal Massacre, but they were going to record Into the Ovens according to the show. They ended up recording Random Violence. I wonder what happened there… I personally think Random Violence is a better choice.
