Groovie Ghoulies- Old Ironsides, Sacramento 6/96 1st gen VHS-DVD

So I was an early adopter with all of this VHS to DVD conversion stuff. I bought a capture card in 2001 for WAY too much money and transferred a few videos at lesser quality than what I can do today. I borrowed a few of Ken Doose’s tapes and transferred them. This is one- the Ghoulies at Old I in 1996. Thanks Ken for offering this tape up!

Robyn Hitchcock- Interview and Live Acoustic on CBC Real Time Radio 6/8/96 xfer from 1st gen cassette

Here’s a short one to ease yourself into the 4 day workweek. It was at the end of the Belly tape that Joel Gershon sent me. Unfortunately, it cuts off. It sounds really great, what a bummer. I heard that someone was given Joel’s collection, but I have never seen anything surface since he left.

Metallica – Tower Records Parking Lot, Sacramento, CA 6-4-96

Go figure. I punch in Sacramento in the search area on my youtube channel and a Metallica show is the first thing to pop up. Really enjoyed the experience of filming these rare flatbed truck gigs.

What a cool day this was. Metallica planned to perform LIVE 3 shows in one day to promote the upcoming release of the LOAD record in 3 different tower records parking lots…3pm San Jose, 6pm Concord, 9pm Sacramento. Since I lived in Concord that one excited me the most. But since the city of Concord would not issue the permits the band were only able to pull off San Jose and Sacramento which were both filmed. MFTMON was next to me shooting as well.

Mothball Fleet- 6th Annual Davis Musicians Co-op, Vets Aud 1996

This one was a surprise- it is not labeled on the tape. I am a huge Thin White Rope fan, so I was happy to see this surface. Thanks to Brian Grattidge for confirming that they did play the show. Thanks also to Rusi Gustafson who fills us in: “This one-shot amalgamation of Acme and Curbfeelers members played completely improvised music on the side of the stage in between the other bands’ sets. We called ourselves Mothball Fleet. I don’t see Dave Thompson, but I’m pretty sure he was there too”

99 Tales- 6th Annual Davis Muscians Co-Op, Vets Mem Aud, Davis 1996

OK, I figured out the Jem & Scout/99 Tales thing from yesterday’s post. The Jem & Scout is only about 12min long, so I will keep that post as is, since it has all the J&S filmed. 99 tales were filmed in 2 different sections- it looks like they played 2 sets. I put them both together and posted them here for your convenience. 🙂 Thanks to Jerry Drawhorn and Robert Toren. ONe last thing- year has been confirmed to 1996 & venue is the Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium in Davis.
