I was digitizing a cassette last night for a friend and this show was at the end of tape. I liked it so much, I thought I’d share. This is a great interview with Steve and they do a couple of my favorite Shellac songs live in studio. Tracks: Crow/Blockhead/Dog & Pony Show

Here’s a great video of The Dragons, shot by Todd Nakamine with my camera. Todd has always had amazing musical taste, and he does it again here. He drove from his house to pick up my camera in whittier(wrong way), and then back to L.A. to the show. So glad he did it, as I ended up loving the bands he filmed.
Recorded with a Sony TR81 camcorder
Filmed with my Sony TR-81 camcorder using a standard definition 8mm tape. Filmed by my old friend Todd Nakamine. Please check out my youtube channel for hundreds of other punk videos, many multi camera
I lived in the L.A. area from 1992-1995. I had 2 good friends when I lived there- Todd Nakamine was one of them. We met at a Penelope Houston show at Bogart’s shortly after I loved there in 1992 or 93. We both filmed shows. In 1995, Todd’s camcorder died, so he would drive out from Redondo Beach (I think), pick up the TR-81, then go back and tape a show. He did this a few times- once for this show, once for a fem2fem in-store performance. That’s an hour round trip, that was dedication! Anyway, Todd was always trying to get me to see this band called The Muffs. I never did, and then years later they become one of my all-time favories. Glad I have the tape now. The audio is extremely distorted- sorry about that. They must have been loud.
If you did not notice, I am going through my tape lists from A-Z and posting everything that I filmed, or that is from sacramento to prep for the sacramento concert archive website. Still on “A”. Haha. So, I was digging through my tapes a few years ago, transferring show. This one was unmarked on the tape, and I was wondering “what the hell”? Then I remembered- I filmed my cousin’s band at the (in)famous Riolo’s in Roseville! Hot damn! Many covers here, I hope the youtube copyright-bot doesn’t plonk me.
This was supposed to be yesterday’s Mediocre Monday post, but I was travelling and my laptop conked out. Nothing like calling tech assistance at midnight, trying to fix your laptop for meetings first thing in the morning!
Anyway, this qualified for Mediocre Monday because even though it is nice quality and the arrangements are unique, it is pretty damn boring. This is most likely a rehearsal for Willie’s shows in early 1995 when he was backed by a symphony. Those actual shows are GREAT- we have one from the Beacon Theatre that will get posted soon and is a really nice listen. This is another one from DAT trades with Damon Bramblett in the 90s. One more post coming today
