Whorelords- Melarkey’s, Sacramento Ca. 5/24/92 Tales of Terror Sex 66

So the philosophy of the sac music archive is to include ALL videos from Sacramento based shows/musicians/filmers/tapers etc… we don’t discriminate, even when the content is questionable. The videos I post may not reflect my personal views, or my musical tastes.
Now that we got that out of the way, here are the Whorelords. The whorelords were an all-star band consisting of Rat’s ass on vocals; Mike Farrell on drums, and Dave Zimini (from Apriori).

I see people I know! Lizz Fisher gives the camera the side eye at about 45 seconds in, and I think that may be Tom Hutchison at about 30 seconds. What a party!

Buffalo Tom- Cattle Club, Sacramento 5/19/92 DAT Master Soundboard Enhanced Bill Janovitz

Here is the headlining set from that insanely stacked Sebadoh/Pavement/Go Dog Go/Buffalo Tom bill. There was enough of the instruments in the mix to make this rebalance sound REALLY nice. Super happy with this one.
I am still kicking myself for running out of tape in the middle of Larry. It’s my favorite BT song.

Rebalance in Izotope RX7 (I can’t remember the exact settings, but it was mainly bass and guitar boost)

Pavement- Cattle Club, Sacramento Ca. 5/19/92 xfer from DAT Master Audio Malkmus Indie

This was an eagerly anticipated show, and this was also the first time I got to see Pavement play. I thought this was their first west coast show ever, but setlist.fm shows that a show took place in Davis in 1989. Hmm, I never knew. We were friends with Scott K (Spiral Stairs)- he even played bass in my friend roommate’s band for a show in 1990. We also knew Gary well, as my friends had recorded at his studio in Stockton. I wonder how he’s doing…

OH, and as a side note, one of my biggest taping screwups happened the next night. I video’d the entire 90 min set from Kennel Club and forgot to turn the mic on my camera on. Silent video. I was running on about 4 hours sleep and then drove to SF for the show, so I was dead tired. I then taped over almost all of it because I never thought people would care about silent video footage. I might have 5min of it on a tape somewhere.

Sebadoh- Cattle Club, Sacramento 5/19/92 xfer from DAT Master Rebalanced Lou Barlow

Last year, Brian asked if I could post these shows on 5/19 and I told him that I would get them ready for this year. I then transferred the DAT months ago, but I am terrible about these anniversary date shows, so it was on the spindle awaiting prep. I saw that he posted the poster on the anniversary date- YESTERDAY, so it lit a fire under me to finally get these done.
There is a funny story behind this one- I traded the raw mix of this tape back in the early 90s to a few people, and somehow it ended up for sale at a record show and Barlow saw it. The next time I asked to record Sebadoh (at Memorial Auditorium) he gave me a hard time about it. I apologized, but I told him I had nothing to do with it, other than taping the show. Gotta love them bootleggers.

Drivin n Cryin- Atlanta, Ga 5/15/92 Live xfer from DAT Master Clone Kevn Kinney

Today’s post is what I think is an incomplete recording of Drivin’ n Cryin’ from Atlanta. I think the taper (Chuck Erb) recorded the full set, but only sent me this 25min partial clip of the show.
