Buzzcocks: I-Beam, San Francisco Ca. 11/27/89 xfer from cassette

Here is another Buzzcocks show from the archive, during their first trip out west after they reunited in 1989. So my notes on this one say “1st gen cassette, done with my deck”. I can’t remember who borrowed my equipment to record this show- was it you, Mark Martin?
Anyway, I remixed it and took the edge off the high end and boosted the hell out of the bass. It was thinner before, believe it or not.

Recorded by: ?
Equipment used: Sony WMD6C Pro Walkman, Sony ECM909 mic.

Tantrum- Boardwalk, Sacramento Ca. 11/24/89 xfer from master tape!

Along with posting videos from cattcle club and posting videos of local bands, I have been trying to post old shows from as many local venues as possible. Here is Tamtrum, a metal band from the 80’s. Our friend Marissa was in the band. There she is playing bass. At the very beginning of this one, there is about a 1 minute clip of “horse-cow”, a multimedia project featuring Steve Vanoni.

Members: Jill Olson- Bass/vocals; Steve Cornell- Guitar/vocals; Michael Montalto- Guitar; Brad- Accordion. Many members of this band went on to form popular bay area Alt-country band Red Meat.

Exene Cervenka- Cattle Club, Sacramento Ca 11/19/89 xfer from master tape Sony Pro Walkman X Band

I was at this show and even filmed the opener (Movie Stars), but Exene put the ol kibosh on video so Anonymous’ audio recording is the only document we have. It sounds pretty good- I remember Anonymous not being too happy with the recording because it sounded thin and there was a lot of audience chatter (it was packed that night). I was able to rebalance it in Izotope to boost vocals, bass and guitar. Chatter still present but not too bad.

Equipment used: Nakamichi Dragon and M-Audio Audiophile 2496 card
Rebalance in Izotope Rx8: Vocals +6, Bass +3, Guitar +4

Alter Natives: Cattle Club, Sacramento Ca. 11/18/89 LIVE SST Records GWAR

So I looked on youtube and there are a grand total of ZERO Alter-Natives live full show videos. They may have been a bit obscure, but they were a great instrumental band out of Richmond Va. This band also had a guy named Chris Bopst, who went onto become Balsac from GWAR for a stretch. OK, enough Alter Natives trivia for today. Recorded by me with my Aiwa CV-80 and Sony ECM909 mic strapped to the top.
