Bjorn Again- Reading Festival, England 8/30/92 Japanese TV xfer from 1st Gen VHS Tape ABBA LIVE

Playing AFTER Pavement at Reading was an ABBA cover band. I had always thought that Bjorn from Abba was in this band with a bunch of hired guns, but I found out yesterday that no, no original Abba members. They sound great for a cover band, and I do love some Abba.

L7- Reading Festival, England 8/30/92 xfer from 1st Gen VHS Tape Japanese TV Proshot

I don’t know who is responsible for the amount of airtime each band received in this hour long special from Japanese TV, but I question the judgment of a person who gives 11min to bjorn again and less than 3min to L7. D’oh. And, like I said yesterday, I love Abba!

Pavement- Reading Festival, England 8/30/92 Proshot xfer from 1st Gen VHS Tape Japanese TV Live

I was looking at my old VHS tapelist over the weekend, because I could have sworn I had another SNFU Gilman show from 1987 but it must be goneā€¦ then I saw this tape and figured that would be fun to digitize.
Back in the mid-90s, I traded with a lady name Saki Honma. She was the biggest Uncle Tupelo fan in Japan- she even flew from Japan to St. Louis to see Tupelo’s last shows in 1994. She would tape stuff off of Japanese TV (they broadcast KILLER stuff in nice quality) and send it to me. This one is a VHS copy off of her SVHS master.
This clip has been posted to youtube 2 other times, but I think this is slightly better quality. I will be posting other bands from this day throughout the week.

Groovie Ghoulies- 315 Vallejo, Roseville Ca. 8/29/92 Xfer from DAT Master Tape

After they ended the Tombstone Blues set, the band took about a 1 minute break and played a 45 minute ghoulies set. It was so much fun- you will hear a “clink” and a dropout at about 11:30 into the recording. The deck & mic fell off of the heater and hit Kevin Scott in the head. Sorry!
This whole night was fuzzy, but I remember the tiny house (700 sq ft) being WAY too packed with 100+ people, I remember getting way too drunk and being hung over for 2 days after for the first (and only) time ever, and I remember my band playing a song without rehearsal for the first time in 5 years(that was not recorded). I also remember the cops coming, and kicking people out so I could sleep.

Tombstone Blues- 315 Vallejo, Roseville Ca. 8/29/92 xfer from DAT master tape Groovie Ghoulies Side Project

Back in 1992, I moved to Los Angeles for a couple of different reasons- my job moved down there. The weekend before I left, my old rental house was empty, so we bought a keg from Sudwerk and had The Groovie Ghoulies & Tombstone Blues play.
Tombstone Blues was a very short lived side project of the Groovie Ghoulies. Kepi, Roach & Kevin Scott played a set of old Rock and Blues covers. This might be the only recorded document of the band, Kepi would know for sure.
