Social Spit- Palisades Theater, San Diego Ca. 3/26/88 xfer from master Juni Bravo Archive

Here’s another one from Juni’s tapes, but this one is clearly labeled. Man, those old school full size VHS camcorders had some nice stock microphones in them. Sounds pretty good for 1988. So this show was on the same tape as the Slim’s show(I think), so I assume this show took place in California. We know we have San Diego on a clearly marked tape, and one of the videos right before this show says “SF” and the venue looks like Slim’s. This is probably either the Sacramento or Long Beach date. Brian McKenna Jerry Perry, Hayden Arellano where did Exploited play in Sac in 1988? Jason Ellis Jon Vogel does this look like Long Beach(probably Fender’s)? JUNI BRAVO ARCHIVE: I bought a bunch of live VHS tapes of Ebay about 6 months ago. I bought them mainly for a Bad Religion Multicam from 1988 that was uncirculated, but I got a while box of VHS tapes. The tapes were intriguing enough for me to try to find out who Juni is- it turns out that she was a Video archivist from the mid- to late-80s based in San Diego & texas. She followed the Exploited on tour in 1988 and produced the “Anarchy in the USA” VHS tape for them. She passed away a couple of years ago and (unbeknownst to me) some guy was selling her stuff off. I decided to post the stuff that was OK to post publicly to be sure Juni got her due, and to let fans of the band see this stuff- there is some gold in here. I also NEED YOUR HELP with some of this stuff. The tapes were poorly labeled so I don’t know who some of the bands are, and I don’t know most of the venues. Any help identifying stuff is appreciated. Thanks

Operation Ivy- KSPC-FM Live in Studio, Claremont Ca. 3/17/88 2nd gen audiotape xfer remixed

Here’s another one from Anonymous’ collection. I am not 100% sure, but I suspect that this tape is the one that was traded out and resulted in endless bootlegs. If that is the case, this should be better quality than what was out there previously. It’s still super raw.
I did my best to bring the drums/guitar down a little and boost the vocals/bass in Izotope. The challenge is that the vocals are all over the place. Buried in places, way too loud in others. Sounds like they were all playing into one mic.

7 Seconds- Danceteria, Sacramento Ca. 3/11/88 Audio only xfer from master tape Remixed Live

Here is another Clear & Distinct show from Danceteria. I don’t remember why I wasn’t at this show, but thankfully Anonymous was there with his Aiwa consumer handheld recorder to capture the show. The funny thing about that recorder is that most recordings sound like hot garbage with the stock microphone, but if you get REAL close to the PA, it actually sounds good! This is one of those times. It was tinny and midrangey, so I EQ’d it to drop the mids and boost the bass, then put it into Izotope RX to boost the bass some more. NINETY minute set! Holy cow!

Yo La Tengo- Mississippi Nights, St. Louis Mo 3/4/88 Proshot xfer from VHS Master Tape

So I had posted this one a long time ago and it was pulled down by matador. I am totally perplexed about it, since other yo la tengo content is allowed to survive on youtube. Does anyone know if this was ever part of an official release?

Anyway, here it is again. I don’t think it will be found by the evil overlords. Enjoy.
