Hi, here is my master video of Monks of Doom from Kennel in 1990. This was a crazy night. I caught a ride from promoter Brian McKenna’s brother and they ended up going to a park after the show to hang out and I did not get home until 5am. Work the next day was awesome. Anyway, I have always loved the earlier Monks stuff the most so this one gets upped first, for Mr. Joe Burns.
This is part 1, you can search the title on youtube to see the rest of the show.

Here’s a fun one- I got these from former band manager Marc Malakie last year. We had talked about making them a free download for the Jerry Perry benefit, but we ran out of time. I bought a reel to reel machine to transfer this (and future reels, and then had to get it refurbished for $400! So, enjoy this $550 transfer.

Equipment used: Teac X-10R into Audiophile 2496 card.
and here is the post intended for today. This one took some detective work- the DAT was labeled vaguely and the old WJUL call letters were taken over by a classic rock station in Georgia.
This is a really good quality “live in the radio studio” session plus an interview that isn’t painful! Well done!

Sometimes I get tapes that are not in the greatest condition, which is to be expected since a lot of them are 30 years old. But man, this tape was BEAT. Check out the pad on the bottom. I was not able to get the Nak dragon to play the entire thing. I had to fwd it a little to get it to play at all as the spools were seizing, and it stopped at about the 5min mark…. and then I cleaned my heads.
After Dark were a local band with Greg Johnson, Guy Jones (I think), and other guys whose name I forget.
I might try to do this one again with a cheaper tape deck- they usually play through anything.
PS: This one is DEFINITELY After Dark. I totally blew it yesterday and posted a glam-era Pantera demo as Panther. Haha, I am kinda proud to not know Pantera’s glam era. Sorry Jeff Gus Buss. I ended up deleting the post, as the demo was already on youtube. Duh.

I checked YT and I did not see this one on there- what a rarity! With that said, the quality on this one is not that great. I don’t know if it sounded like this new or if it degraded over time, but it’s not so pleasant.
