Kristin Hersh- KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, Santa Monica 9/29/94 DAT Master Clone Throwing Muses

Happy Monday everyone! I am taking a break from the KROQ Acoustic Xmas daily posts for a few days to bring a little more variety. First one is from another L.A.- area broadcast, recorded by Kevin Haynes. This is an interview and album tracks only, no in studio performance.

Thurston Moore and Steve Shelley- Alligator Lounge, Santa Monica Ca 9/29/94 DAT Audience Sonic Youth

Here’s one that appears to be uncirculated- nothing on Live Music Archive and nothing on youtube. Kevin Haynes taped this one and I cloned it off of him. Not sure if he ever traded it out.

The Jesus and Mary Chain- Roxy, Hollywood Ca 9/29/94 DAT Clone Audience Tape Live

Here is another uncirculated DAT clone from Kevin Haynes’ collection of masters. When I lived in L.A., I was at home often with young kids so Kevin would hit a lot of the indie/alternative shows and tape them with his gear. This one sounds really clear, but it was lacking on the low end. I tried to EQ it a bit so it at least had a little bottom.

Air Miami- Troubadour, W. Hollywood Ca 9/27/94 DAT Master Clone Mark Robinson Unrest Live

Hm, this one is odd. The band is clearly playing an opening set so the stage volume should not be an issue, but the recording has vocal distortion. I wonder what happened- the Troub has a decent sound system. Anyway, uncirculated Air Miami so yay.

Pavement- Cadillac Club, Fresno Ca. 9/16/94 DAT Master Soundboard xfer Rebalanced Live band

Here’s one that I taped with the DAT machine a little over 27 years ago. I missed the first 4 songs, and I can’t remember exactly why. I recall being super tired(I went to both Palace shows the 2 nights before and went to work during the day) and getting stuck in bad L.A. weekend traffic. It was a long drive- it would have been 3.5 hours with no traffic and I think it took me about 5hrs to get ther. I must have come in late. Shoutout to Remko for plugging me right in to the soundboard.
It was an odd show. I remember it being very loose- to the point that the band were having a “make your instrument fart” contest between songs. The DAT machine I used to record the show was out of alignment (they would break down about every 6 months) and it had some static when I had played it in the past, but I don’t hear it on this transfer. Sony PCM-R500 for the win!
I rebalanced this in Izotope to bring up vocals and guitar. I thought about re-doing it, but the vocals come up later in the set. Good enough.
Oh, and check out that ticket stub. $10 with a $3 fee, and I bought the ticket less than 2 weeks before the show. That’s quite a bit different than buying $100 tickets a year in advanceā€¦

Integrity- Alano, Long Beach Ca 9/10/94 xfer from 1st gen VHS tape enhanced hardcore punk

Here’s the last set from Wayne Triggs’ VHS tape with Avail, Strife, Earth Crisis etc. This is a partial set from Integrity- it runs until the VHS tape cuts. I wonder if the full set (and the master tapes) are still out there somewhere.

Strife- Alano, Long Beach 9/10/94 xfer from 1st gen VHS enhanced Complete Show Hardcore

Late post today- it’s been a rough day. Here is another one from Wayne Triggs’ collection. His friend filmed some mid-90s hardcore shows. This weekend, I am posting sets from (I think) the same show. Here is Strife with an EARLY set. They talk about their upcoming LP, One Truth. Cool to see them in their home area in such a small place.

Beastie Boys- Lollapalooza, CSDH, Carson Ca. 9/5/94 xfer from DAT Audio Master w/Nakamichi CM300

I did not have time to remix this one, so it will sound a bit raw. Turn up the bass on your stereo a little, haha.
I took my step son to this show. He was 11 year old and weighed about 80lbs. When Green Day and Beastie Boys played, the crowd went apeshit and we were crushed/blocked in with a bunch of other people. We would pick our feet up and move 10-15ft at a time. It was both fun and terrifying. You will hear that the recording suffers a bit from the chaos & me yelling to my stepson(safety was a priority at that point) , but I like it anyway.
