Death Angel- Cattle Club, Sacramento 5/29/89 xfer from 1st gen Audio Tape

This one has a story- usually, when a band would not allow me to film at Cattle Club, I would leave the venue (the bands usually wanted the camera man and the camera OUT OF THERE). When Death Angel told me no, I turned on my camcorder, kept it in the bag, and popped my Sony ECM909 mic just outside of the bag and snuck an audio recording of the show. The manager kept walking by, giving me the stink eye and I was all innocent. Haha. Not the best recording but at least one exists.

Operation Ivy- Gilman St. Project, Berkeley Ca. 5/28/89 Direct Transfer from Master Enhanced!

This one has a story behind it. So, I bought my first video camera in 1988 to videotape Op IV. Word started to spread that they were breaking up and this would be their final show. My friend Jason kept telling me to leave early for the show and I kept saying “nah, we’ll be fine”. We get there about an hour before showtime and the club is already full and there are about 2x more people waiting outside. So Jason and I make our way to the side door and I am whining, holding my camera bag. Someone says “hey grab this amp”.. so me and Jason grab one side of a half stack and walk in. Yup, I snuck in- it was my only time EVER doing that to any show. I kept my camera on my hand to ensure no one could see if I had a stamp or not. The opening band starts and they were incredibly great. The band was Green Day, and I swear that they were the guys who had us carry the amp in. So, thank you. If not for you, this video would not exist. Filmed with an Aiwa CV80 8mm camcorder with Sony ECM-909 mic strapped to the top. This was going to be a multicamera video, but we could not get the other angle & audio source to play together well. Anyway, this is a huge upgrade to my master because of Jim McLain’s brightening and contrast work- thanks a lot. Enjoy.

Operation Ivy- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 5/28/89 Multicam w/Sony D6 Audio

Operation Ivy- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 5/28/89 LAST SHOW Multicam w/Sony D6 Audio

I have been wanting to put all of these sources together for a long time, and thanks to @copperpot65 we finally got it done! This is the final, most comprehensive document of the show. Here is what we did:
Took my shaky, handheld angle from the sound booth and brightened/deshake’d it
Added a 2nd angle that I received in trade back in 1989 and edited that in to make this a multicam for the 1st 40min or so
Used a different audio source- Sony D6 recording with Sony ECM909 mic (xfer from master tape, recorded by “anonymous”), which was then GREATLY enhanced by @copperpot5. I can’t believe how good it sounds!

so, while it isn’t perfect due to dark/grainy etc source footage, this is as good as it’s gonna get. Enjoy!

Dr. Drew the Electric Man- Cotati Cabaret, Cotati Ca. 5/24/89 xfer from 8mm master tape

I am doing a project for a gilman webcast, so I digitized an old gilman show from 1989. At the end of that tape, I discovered this long forgotten gem. If anyone from Victims Family or Short Dogs Grow (who played that night) knows this guy, please let him know!
btw, I forgot to turn my microphone on for the first 3min of the 5min video. I just repeated the audio so he wasn’t dancing to silence. I think it worked pretty well.

Fugazi- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 5/20/89 enhanced video w/ Pro Walkman Audio xfer from master tapes

Here’s another one that we prepped for the clif bar event. Gilman was beyond packed for this show and there was no good place to video. I had to be close to the stage or onstage because my camera’s light sensitivity was terrible. I ended up filming the 70 minute show from right in front of Joe, on my knees the entire time so I wouldn’t be in his way.
This was my good friend “Anonymous” first time audiotaping with his Sony WMD6C. He got it that day. We always thought that it didn’t turn out well and wasn’t worth digitizing, but I was able to make it a LOT better in izotope.
Anyway, this is the best that this one is going to get.

Fugazi- Gilman St. Project, Berkeley 5/20/89 VIDEO

This video is decent but not great. Gilman’s lighting was not very robust which left some of my videos dark and grainy. This is the best of the 2 Fugazi Gilman videos I shot. It was PACKED in there, so it was a challenging shot. I think I stood on my knees the entire time! Ow,

This is part 1. The rest of the show is on youtube- you can search by title.

Pitchfork- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 5/20/89 xfer from master 8mm videotape enhanced Live RFTC

Most people probably know of Pitchfork as the band that John Reis’ played guitar in, before Rocket From the Crypt…. but there are some hardcore fans (like Chris Sanders) who saw them back in the late 80s and are still fans now. Chris asked me to post this one- this is not the best video. The stage is SUPER dark for everyone except for the bass player’s back. I did my best by brightening, correcting the exposure, and de-noising the video. It’s not great, but it’s at least a decent early document of the band.
