Dickies- Berkeley Square, Berkeley Ca. 4/30/89 mastertape xfer enhanced COMPLETE SHOW improved audio

Man, I owe Kingbean, Chris Dodge and Daniel Hague a huge debt of gratitude. I filmed this show over 30 years ago and forgot to plug my microphone in for the first half of the set. I have had silent footage this entire time. When I posted half the set and put out a call for any audio of the show- Daniel Hague came through. He had a tape of this show from Chris Dodge’s collection- I think Chris might have taped it himself- which not only made the show complete, but improved the audio of the second half! Wow!!
After working up the audio, it was off to Kingbean for the synch. This one was a huge pain in the ass for him, since most synchs are keyed upon the snare hit and I rarely showed the drummer. He did a great job. Thank you.

The Dickies- Berkeley Square, Berkeley Ca 4/30/89 xfer from master tape Enhanced Live partial show

Hi Everyone,
I could use your help on this one. I had recently bought the Sony ECM-909 microphone for my Aiwa CV-80 camera and filmed the Dickies. I FORGOT to turn on the mic for the first half of the show, so this is only the part of the show with audio. If anyone has audio of the complete set from this show, please let me know as I can synch it up with the (currently) silent video. Thanks!

GWAR- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 4/15/89 xfer from 8mm master enhanced LIVE

Well, I did everything I could with this one. Gilman’s lighting was poor in early 1989, and that combined with my camera made for an unwatchable video. I was able to increase brightness and exposure to the point where you can actually SEE the band now, but it still ain’t great. Sorry.
OH, I am going to take a break from digitizing and enhancing my old masters for a few weeks. I have Patreon rewards to get out and people have been asking for trades for a year now. I’ll be back soon. In the meantime, browse the word cloud or the listings by month/year section of the website. It’s fun!

Operation Ivy- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 4/15/89 xfer from 8mm master enhanced Live

Here is that time that Operation Ivy opened for GWAR at Gilman. Yes, that really happened. This one benefited quite a lot from the enhancements- the stage was poorly lit that night. I bumped it up to where Matt is a bit overexposed, but you can now see the other 3 guys!

Jonathan Segel- UC Davis Coffeehouse 4/7/89 master video tape xfer enhanced Camper van Beethoven

The first minute of this video is a very short clip of Screaming Trees from Aggie Hotel from April of 89. It was so dark and there was no place to shoot from, so I gave up.
This Jonathan Segel show was the first time that I got to see him perform live. I had no idea that he was no longer in Camper van Beethoven, so when I went full fanboy and started gushing about the band he just said “I’m not in the band anymore.”. Whoops. Nice set by JES, doing songs off of his Storytelling album along with a couple of Camper songs he wrote. This is the first show where I used a mic other than the garbage stock one- it only took me a year to figure out that the camera mic unplugs and I can plug in a better one.
This was also one of those life-changing shows where you go to see one artist, and another band plays that blows you away. The Donner Party headlined this show and I couldn’t believe how great they were. I wanted to video, but they had already started playing and filming without permission felt wrong. Man, I wish I had filmed that set.

Screaming Trees- Aggie Hotel, Davis Ca. 4/6/89 xfer from master Audiocassette Live Mark Lanegan

There was some discussion on the Davis fb group about this show and I was cleaning up the studio, so I decided to pop this in and digitize it while I worked. It doesn’t sound too bad, given the aggie really had no sound system (just a PA) and my friend was using a non-professional tape deck. I remember talking to Gary from the band outside and him being super cool in general, and allowing us to audio and videotape. I bailed on video as there was no lighting, but my friend ran audio. Here is the transfer from his tape.
