Movie Stars- Palms, Davis Ca 1/24/91 xfer f/ master cassette Marantz PMD430 Nak CM300 x2 Red Meat

Here’s another post, mourning the Palms’ closure. Actually, I wouldn’t call it mourning. It is more like when you get a call and your great aunt who you were close to but had not seen in 20 years passed away… I absolutely loved the Davis location, but the Winters spot didn’t do it for me. Still, sad to see it go.

Besides the incredible fairport convention soundboard recordings (thanks again Lawrence), this is the best recording I ever made there. In fact, it is probably my best audio recording of The Movie Stars… ever. Their first (only?) time at The Palms, and they played 2 sets that night, so they pulled out songs that they rarely played.

Recorded by: Shayne Stacy
Equipment used: Marantz PMD430(like a Sony TCDD5) and 2 Nakamichi CM300 mics.
Transfer equipment: Nakamichi Dragon and M-Audio Audiophile 2496 card

Fastbacks- Off Ramp Cafe, Seattle Wa 1/6/91 xfer from 4th gen audio cassette Subpop Punk

I miss the Fastbacks- I even emailed Kurt to see if there was any chance they were going to play anytime soon. I didn’t hear back :-). Oh well, it was worth a try.
This is a decent audience recording of the band. Sounds like a Sony D3 recording to me. Very listenable but not perfect.

Mr. Bungle- Cattle Club, Sacramento Ca. 1/5/91 xfer from master tape!


Hi, happy friday! Here’s my Mr. Bungle Cattle Club video. It was so packed at the club that night, and with the cold temperatures outside, the place was humid and steamy. The mirrors on the side of the club had water running down them because of the condensation. Filmed with the old Aiwa CV-80 and Sony ECM-909 mic.
