Jawbreaker- Lounge Ax, Chicago Il. 8/28/90 xfer from unknown gen VHS tape East Bay Punk

Here is yet another Jawbreaker show from Jason Ross’ collection, that was digitized for the Turn it Around documentary many years ago. There is another version of this show on Youtube, but it is much shorter- it is less than half of the total time of this one. I think their quality is better- this one is pretty generated.

no enhancements. Can’t fix a video this degraded.

Monks of Doom- Cattle Club, Sacramento 8/25/90 Part 1 (only for now)

 

So I always have an endless backlog of video & audio stuff to do for people (so if you are waiting, sorry, I will get to it). Right now, I am giving the Camper Van Beethoven documentary guys about 50 videos. They asked for some Cattle Club stuff that I had not seen in a while. Check out how great this clip is- and look what can happen when you turn the lights all the way up in that place! Seriously, great stuff. This was my favorite era of theirs.

Monks of Doom- Kennel Club, San Francisco Ca. 7/25/90 xfer from 8mm master enhanced

The kennel had those psychedelic light show guys at a lot of their shows in 1990. It’s cool to see, but it makes the stage darker. I was finally able to enhance this one so it is a bit more watchable. Greg was super dark before.

Enhanced with Adobe Premiere (Exposure/brightness) and denoised with neat video.

Monks of Doom- Cattle Club, Sacramento Ca. 8/25/90 xfer from master tape enhanced

btw, you can thank(or send hate mail to) Jim Rivas for all of these July/August 1990 posts. He asked for Rosebuds from Candlerock, and since I was poor back then I always used every inch of every tape. All of these videos were split across the rosebuds tape, or from another tape related to the rosebuds tape. Make sense? Well, it did to me.

Anyway, here is yet another Monks of Doom show. Man, they were prolific in SF/Sac in 1990. This one sounds pretty damned good for being shot from the stage at Cattle. This video was previously so dark it was unwatchable, it has now been brightened/denoised and came out pretty nice.

Verbal Abuse- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 8/24/90 xfer from low gen soundboard tape

I was digging through boxes of tapes that a friend sent over to me and this one jumped out as one that needed to be digitized. I was shocked that Verbal Abuse- the drunkest band in the bay area at the time, were playing at (no drugs, no alcohol) Gilman. After digging into the history a bit, it looks like they were a (very) last minute replacement for Negazione– if you look at the flyers from this date, there is no mention of VA and Negazione is shown. Scotty even pokes fun at the situation, pretending to be the band from Italy.

Sex pistols cover at 8:00. This set kicks ass and is a must listen for the stage banter alone. Verbal Abuse and Gilman go together like oil and water. haha!

The mix was a bit light on guitar and bass, so I popped it into Izotope and boosted guitar and bass a lot, and drums a little.

Sonic Youth- Crest Theater, Sacramento Ca. 8/20/90 xfer from 8mm master enhanced

This one has a story. Back in 1990, I was the manager of the office softball team. We only had 9 players on the same day that Sonic Youth was playing the Crest. So I drove downtown, showed up early to the show, set up the camera and had a friend turn it on. Then I drove back to Citrus Heights and played the game, then sped back downtown to the show. The camera does not move for the first half, until I get there. I also missed filming the opener- Nirvana. D’oh. At least I filmed them at Cattle…

The Rosebuds- Candlerock Lounge, Sacramento Ca. 8/18/90 xfer from master tape enhanced

When I saw The Rosebuds play the Jerry Perry benefit last December, I mentioned to Jim Rivas that I had filmed them back in 1990. So, at his request, here is The Rosebuds from the glorious Candlerock lounge. I can’t believe this place is still open- it was dying back in 1990!
The lighting was pretty uneven, so I tried to enhance it a bit by brightening and increasing exposure. You can now see the right hand side of the stage a bit.
The Rosebuds have always been one of my favorite Sacramento bands, and their performance at Jerry’s benefit was special. I can’t wait for everyone to see it!
