Uncle Tupelo- Cicero’s, St. Louis Mo. 6/30/89 Xfer from Soundboard Band Archive Audiocassette

This show is probably the most legendary of all of the Uncle Tupelo archive tapes. Like I mentioned before, Cicero’s was Uncle Tupelo’s “home base” in the late 80s, and they were famous (notorious) for drunken performances back then. This was rumored to be the pinnacle of great, drunken performances from back then. I mean, just check out that setlist! (setlist courtesy of the excellent factorybelt.net website).

And I know that this is a pic of The Old 97s, but it was the only one that I could find that showed the stage of the original Cicero’s.

Danzig- The Stone, San Francisco Ca. 6/18/89 Master Tape xfer Sony Pro Walkman WMD6C Samhain Misfits

OK, time for an old man ramble. I had bought a ticket for this show well in advance, but then I realized that the show was on Fathers Day. A big group from my Dad’s side of the family went to the Giants game, and I went as well. After the game, I had some friends of my dad drop me off at The Stone.. at about 5 or 6pm. I hung out on Broadway street for HOURS, waiting for the doors to open.
Being there by myself was a huge risk, as I had my Sony Pro Walkman with me and security was pretty tight at the club. If I got caught at the door(or while taping), there was no place to me to take my deck. I would be stuck waiting outside. Luckily, I got everything in.
Show was PACKED so I could not get a really good taping spot, but it still sounds pretty good. It was a bit bassy, so I fixed it up a bit in Izotope.
After the show, I was supposed to get a ride with Mark Martin but I could never find him. I panicked and went with Greg Johnson instead. Mark called me the next day SO pissed off- they waited for an hour after the show, trying to find me. I’m still sorry about that.

Christ on Parade- Cattle Club, Sacramento 6/15/89 xfer from master!

This was my first Cattle Club show. I had been there when it was Club Me and Club Obsession for shows, but this was first time with Jerry and Brian. Guys- was this the first out of town band to play Cattle? These guys are one of my all-time favorite bands. I wish they would play again with Noah singing. “A Mind is a Terrible Thing” is a Top 10 disc. It starts dark, but gets better when I moved at about the 39 minute mark. For the first few months, Cattle had a smaller P.A. which made it easier to film from this “better” spot.

Christ on Parade- Cattle Club, Sacramento Ca. 6/15/89 xfer from Sony D6 master cassette

This was a special show- this was The Cattle Club’s first out of town booking. They were only doing shows 4 nights a month (every other thu and sat) at Club Me at that point.
Christ on Parade is one of my all time favorite bands, so it is really nice to dig this cassette out and give it a proper transfer. This was toward the end of the band’s run, so it is really interesting to hear the post- “mind is a terrible thing” songs here. Thanks to anonymous for taping- my video (even though it was done with the same model of mic) does not sound nearly as good.
Thanks to Brian for bringing the out of town bands to Cattle, starting with this show.
And before everyone asks, I don’t have the screeching weasel set.

Corrupted Morals- Whole Earth Fest, Davis Community Park 6/3/89 xfer from 8mm master LIVE

I think that I had to work during at least part of this set. I vaguely recall begging Mike Yoas to help me film this with my equipment. I’m not sure if he did the entire show, or if I am the one who came and got close to the stage. Really nice quality- I wish all punk shows could be outside in the daytime.

Christ on Parade- Davis Community Park, Davis Ca. 6/3/89

This year’s whole earth fest was amazing. What a lineup! I got there late (work) but I managed to catch one of my favorites. Check the beginning of the video when Lint gives me a greeting, one week after op ivy broke up. I was standing on top of a guitar amp in the crowd and came close to getting knocked off multiple times. oh, one last thing. This video suffers from over exposure a bit. It was dusk and Noah wasa wearing white, which wreaked havoc on the old dinosaur camera (Aiwa CV-80 with Sony ECM909 mic)

Green Day- Davis Community Center, Davis Ca 6/2/89 xfer from master incomplete brightened

Here is one for Scott Torguson and Danny Ensele. I asked Jim McLain to brighten my operation ivy last show master, and there happened to be a bit of the Green Day show on there as well, so he did it too! I should have asked him to do both, he does amazing work. Check out his youtube channel if you can. So, I went to this show after seeing Green Day play at Gilman on 5/28. I fell in love with them immediately so I went to this Davis show. This video would have looked GREAT but they turned the lights out right before they played. D’oh. I talked to Billie Joe about this video at the Monsula show last year- he not only knew about the video, he said he watched it and that there is an unreleased song on it called “xxx” (I can’t remember, shit). I thought that was really cool that he knew of the video. I’ll post the complete non-brightened version next.
