I was trying to post last night’s show, but YT has decided to take its sweet time to process that one. I think this is a pretty decent consolation prize. This one comes from Radley Hirsch’s generous archive of tapes that he digitized, and I don’t see it anywhere on the internet. They sound really great here.

Here’s a request from Carl Sylvester- this was a legendary show amongst music fans in LV.. and I can see why. It looks like they were playing this tiny club that had cool shows in the late 80s. CVB played for over 85 minutes, which is unusual for that era. The board tape was heavy on drums and vocals, so I tried to boost up the bass and guitar/keyboard. Unfortunately, Izotope stuck the keyboard and guitar together into one “channel”, so I had to crank the keyboard to get some guitar in the mix. Still, not bad and a killer show.

Here is one from Gary Shurtleff’s collection (check out his excellent “fromthenosebleeds” channel for mostly arena rocking coolness)- an uncirculated 1st gen VHS tape of RKL at covered wagon in SF in 1988. I think that 1988 run is peak RKL- they were so amazing back then. I think this was filmed by the drummer of a band called M.A.R. who lived in the area- Stockton, I think. I forgot his name and lost his contact info, but he filmed RKL A LOT, and I don’t think much has gotten out. Wonder where he is now.

So after filming IGD, I tried to sneak some video of Kreator and hopefully DRI. Nope. I was shut down after 12 minutes. I can’t remember if Stew stopped me, or if the band did. I vaguely remember Stewart telling me to get down with that camera.
This was a memorable trip to Gilman. I remember getting down there late to see this show- I think this is the one that Dayglo Abortions was supposed to play but never showed, earning the name no show abortions.
Anyway, we were starving when we got there and CM was getting ready to play. So, I handed my camera to Chris Dodge who filmed the part of this set while we went to get pizza. You can see Chris interviewing band members on stage during the set. Larry also flashes the camera, which is pretty damned funny.
please watch until the end- Steve Vontill and other gilman nerds run around with the camera and dork out, gilman style.
Corrupted Morals is playing in SONORA- you heard me right- SONORA this weekend! Go check them out!
