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.
