Michael Franti and Charlie Hunter- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 9/15/90 xfer from 2nd gen VHS Enhanced

I don’t have much time today, so here’s a short but rare clip.
This was Michael Franti, post- Beatnigs and before Spearhead. Joining him on guitar is Charlie Hunter, who went on to do some interesting stuff as well.

I also have a master soundboard tape of the show, so if anyone wants to synch them up, let me know!

They played a short set, opening for Chumbawamba and Neurosis.

Chumbawamba- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 9/15/90 xfer from 8mm master

This was a special show- Chumbawamba making their first west coast appearance, with Neurosis opening(I thnk, if I remember correctly) and Eve Libertine/Son in the first slot. We have 1 other angle of this show and a THIRD angle was just discovered. Also “Anonymous” taped the show through the soundboard and it sounds nice. Maybe someone will edit it together one day! 🙂

Neurosis- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 9/15/90 xfer from soundboard master cassette

So Gilman soundboards were always a hit and miss type of deal. Then they got a new 16 channel board in 1989? and everything sounded WAY better. This mix slides around a bit but everything is there. I was surprised to see that this wasn’t on YT yet.

Neurosis- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 9/15/90 xfer from 2nd gen VHS enhanced

Here is the neurosis set from 9/15/90. It is pretty distant- the filmer did not zoom in much. At least the crowd was into it.

I do have a nice soundboard master recording of the set, if anyone wants to take a run at synching the 2 sources together
