Surrogate Brains- Downtown Rehearsal Studios, Sacramento 6/24/88 Brightened version

The first video camera I bought was an Aiwa VP-88 back in 1988. I bought it on clearance at Montgomery Ward, and since I was clueless, I thought that all cameras operated basically the same way. The VP-88 had TERRIBLE low light sensitivity, which is why so many of my videos are very dark. This show only had 1 light bulb for lighting, so it was impossible to see. Jim McLain worked some magic (seriously MAGIC- HOW does he do this??) and you can now actually watch this video, rather than a black blob! Thank you Jim!!

Dead Jacksons- Gilman St. Project, Berkeley Ca. 6/24/88 Multicam unreleased flipside video!

This one is for Mike Meals, he was in the band. Huge thanks to Radley Hirsch (gilman’s original soundman) for loaning me this tape recently. This was a flipside multicamera shoot for a gilman “rock against racism” benefit which featured MDC, Operation Ivy, and many more. They never released it- I don’t know why.

7 Seconds- Danceteria, Sacramento Ca. 6/23/88 xfer from master tape!

So I had my camera for about a month and a half when 7 seconds played a hometown show. They have been one of my favorite bands for over 30 years, so it was a thrill when they have the OK to video. This is a great show, and surprisingly well-lit for the ancient camera. Filmed with an Aiwa CV-80 and stock mic (sorry for the audio quality). Look for yourselves in the front row, all you middle aged punks! This is one of the few Clear & Distinct shows I filmed. Thanks Stuart Katz!

Redrum- Merrie Melodies Record Store, Lodi Ca. 6/18/88 Sacramento Thrash Metal

So this one is kind of a long story so I will try to keep it short. I used to manage Redrum and they were playing an outdoor show in Lodi on a Saturday. I had to work saturdays so I worked half day, then raced over there to see them play. Well, I did not have a chance to eat… and there was a lot of free beer at the show… so unfortunately you get to see some of the hijinks after the set. Please note that CARLOS is manning/directing the camera during most of the after-show stuff.

Dag Nasty- Club Obsession (Club Me Cattle Club), Sacramento Ca 6/12/88 xfer from 8mm master Enhanced

I think this was the first time I ever set foot into the venue that would become the Cattle Club. Thanks to my old friend Greg Dean for bringing the band to Sacramento. This video was pretty much unwatchable before, due to it being too dark. The enhancements make it somewhat tolerable. I need to see if I have another audio source for this one, as the stock mic sounds like hell.

Recorded by: Shayne Stacy
Equipment Used: Aiwa CV80 & Stock Mic
Enhancement: Adobe Premiere brighten/increase exposure, denoise with neat video.
