Mudhoney-Castaic Lake, Castaic Ca. 9/26/92 xfer from Hi8 Master

So this entire show is a long story- thanks to Scott Kennberg, I was able to get a pass. I thought it was a filming pass, but it was actually a backstage pass. It was really odd, being a 25 year old kid, given access to backstage with Sonic Youth, Mudhoney, and Kurt/Courtney/Frances. It made me feel pretty strange, so I bailed after a beer.

Anyway, here is Mudhoney’s set. They were GREAT. Encore is Fang’s “The Money Will Roll Right In” w/Kurt on guitar.

Mudhoney- Castaic Lake, Castaic Ca. 9/26/92 Part 1 Transfered from Hi8 Master!

This was definitely a strange day. I had trouble getting my camera nito the venue, so I had to track down Scott K from Pavement to get me a pass. It took quite a while(he was busy), so I just hung outside the gate for what seemed like forever. He was finally able to swing an all access pass. Thanks Scott! I actually had a tripod at the show, but there was no way to use it practically. So, you get a shaky handheld shot instead. Filmed with Sony TR81/stock mic and hi8 tape

Kurt Cobain- Castaic Lake, Castaic Ca. 9/26/92 xfer from Hi8mm master (I think)

And here is Kurt’s solo performance. Yes, that is my goofy ass voice saying “give me a break”.

Sonic Youth- Castaic Lake Ampthitheater, Castaic Ca 9/26/92 xfer from Hi8 Master w/Soundboard Audio

Here’s the final Castaic set. They were so loud that my original camera audio was all distorted, so this is a huge upgrade. Thanks Jonathan Wolff, Mike Ziegler, and King Bean for helping to make this happen!

Here’s what I remember of this show. I could not get my equipment through security, so I asked Scott K (Spiral Stairs) for help. He looked suuuuppeerrr put out but he came through with a pass about an hour later (thanks and sorry Scott). It was shortly before Pavement’s set, so I had to hustle out to the car, grab my stuff, and then hustle back in.
Later on, I realized that the pass was an all access pass and I really had to go to the bathroom, so I went back and grabbed a water and stuff. I remember walking by Kurt and Courtney, and I vaguely remember seeing a baby… but Frances was only like a month old at the time so maybe I am misremembering.
Sorry these sets from Castaic are such crappy camerawork. I had a tripod, but the entire place was just one huge, flat dirt field. There was no place to go. I should have just gone up on stage to film.
This was the last time I would see my friend Matt Polish(randomly saw him at the show) for over 20 years.

This is one of my favorite Mudhoney sets. I really liked Piece of Cake, so this set with songs from that new release, plus the classic stuff, plus Cobain joining them for a couple songs including the Fang cover was just perfect.

For this Cobain clip, I am SO happy to not have to hear my voice on the audio track anymore. I caught flak for not knowing who leadbelly was… in 1992. Yeah, sorry I wasn’t a music encyclopedia at 25 years old. How many of you metalheads/punk/alt peeps knew then?
