Redrum- Power Corrupts LP Rough Mix w/different vocals xfer from master tape January 1989

There’s kind of a long story behind this one, and this is only my memory of it..
After the first day of recording the LP, we ran off a cassette of the rough mix to listen to. Vonni (was it only Vonni?) thought that the vocals were too clean, and wanted them re-recorded. I thought they sounded great, they sound exactly like how Carlos sang back then. So back in the studio they went, to “dirty up” the vocals and release the CD that you might have heard. I think this version is FAR SUPERIOR. Too bad it is just a rough mix.
Side note- listen until the very end- there is a BONUS cover that Vonni sings. The guy who laughs when he starts singing is me.

Groovie Ghoulies- Music Machine, Los Angeles Ca. 1/25/89 Multicam

These next videos are ones that I (nor Jim, Zoran etc) filmed. Since Groovie Ghoulies were based in Sacramento (and Kepi went to high school with me), they get posted. Here is a CLASSIC multicam of an early incarnation of the band, when they were based in L.A. That hair is amazing.

Redrum- Club Me, Sacramento Ca. 1/15/89 Master Soundboard Audio Only Thrash Metal

So I got back in touch with Bobby Whitright a couple of days ago and he was looking for a specific Redrum show. Since I was listening to this one, I decided to post it as well. Taped from the soundboard on a high bias cassette. Club Me became the Cattle Club shortly after this show. Great covers of Misfits and Iron Maiden toward the end of the set. The mix settles down and while it is imperfect, it ain’t bad.

Redrum- Club Me, Sacramento Ca. 1/15/89 xfer from master videotape Enhanced with soundboard Audio

Here’s a fun one that is vastly improved with all of the enhancements. This might have been the last time I saw Redrum with the Bobby and Jeff lineup. Show stops about halfway through so Vonni can have a bathroom break… and I follow him into the bathroom for a quick interview. What was I thinking?
We tried to enhance the board tape to bring up guitars, but Jeff’s bass is at the same frequency as the guitar so when I boost guitar, I get an annoying bass “pluck” which is unlistenable at the end. So, you get the raw board tape. It’s not too bad.

Junkyard- Unknown Location (San Diego?) 1989 Xfer from master VHS Juni Bravo Archive

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.

Tesco Vee and The Meatmen- Meat Vol. 1 VHS tape 4 hrs of live videos straight from Tesco Vee Way USA

Here’s something for you all. Tesco Vee sent this VHS tape to a friend many years ago- it is 4 hours of what he called “the best quality available” of Meatmen and Tesco appearances. Some of these clips have surfaced in better quality (like the Wilson Center 1982 show), but I have never seen a lot of this stuff. Most of it is unlabeled but it includes live shows, multicam shows, TV appearances, the Way USA TV show, and more.

Recorded by: Various, tape created by Tesco Vee

Equipment: JVC HRS9800 (no TBC, picture stabilization on) and Canopus ADVC300
