Adrenalin O.D.- Dingbatz, Clifton NJ 11/5/22 4K UHD Multicam w/ 3 source matrix audio AOD NYHC NJHC

If it’s Tuesday, it must be time for an AOD post.
Last month, AOD got together for the first time in 8 years to celebrate the release of Dave Scott’s book “If it’s Tuesday this must be Walla Walla: The Wacky History of Adrenalin OD”, which is a hilarious chronicle of not only AOD but the early punk scene in NY/NJ. Dave put a lot of work into the book, pulling from his own surprisingly lucid memories along with a network of old friends’ accounts which makes it a much more detailed account of events than the usual oral history. I laughed out loud a lot while reading it. Available through DiWulf publishing.
Enough of the sales pitch, on to the performance. I think that these 2 performances were better than the 2014 reunion, and some of that had to do with the preparation. Dave (and I assume the rest of the band) practiced for a couple of months ahead of the show and you could really tell.
Unfortunately, the video suffers a bit from lighting challenges. The sound/light man was the highest person actually working a show that I had ever seen and it seems that he forgot to turn on the main stage lights until the last 5 min of the show. So we got red lights which caused my cameras to freak out a bit- I had to dial down the exposure on the G60 so Paul would not overexpose. Get a tan, wouldya?. We did our best. It sounds good- the 3 source mix sounds pretty nice.

Audio Equipment: DPA4061 Mics, Church Audio Preamp, Sony A10; Sony M10 in soundboard; Rode Videomic Pro on the G50.

Adrenalin O.D. OD- Stanhope House, Stanhope NJ 10/25/15 Multicamera with Matrix Audio!

Here’s the final night of the 2 show AOD “tour”. This show was more of a drunken party than the Bowery show, and it was a lot of fun. This was my first time seeing Jack Steeples play with the band- I saw AOD once at the Mab in 1987 with Keith on bass and Keith also played with them in NYC so that was a treat. Lenny from Buy Our Records & Bedlam came up on stage to do the spoken part at the beginning of Trans Am. Thanks to Art Zawodny for the help with filming, Agelos for the excellent edit work as usual, and Jason for the soundboard/audience audio matrix. This one was a good team effort. Thanks to the band for permission to film. One final note about this one- the stage has very uneven lighting- Paul had a bright white light on him, while Bruce had a low red light on him which makes filming a challenge. I set the 2 Canon G10’s to auto setting, which caused Paul to overexpose a bit, and set the G30 (the one stright back) manually, so Paul is lot properly there and everyone else is dark. Hope you still like it.

Adrenalin O.D.- Bowery Electric, New York City 10/23/15 Multicamera with Matrix Audio!

This show made the trip to the east coast (and staying in DB central The Jane Hotel) totally worth it. Be sure to watch the entire thing so you can see the Pit Chicken, “The Bass Player” downing Bruce’s beer, and the shower of bills hitting the stage (and bruce picking them up as he played). The show totally exceeded my expectations. Thanks to Agelos for the excellent edit- this one was hard because the camera on the side of the stage was obstructed at times, and then shut off about halfway through. Thanks to Jason Ellis for the Soundboard/Audience matrix work. Thanks to Joe Vincent for supplying his footage (sorry we could not use it). Thanks to Bowery Electric for letting me film, even though there was nowhere to put cameras in there. Finally, thanks to the band. Filmed with 2 Canon HFG10 and 1 Canon HFG30 on a monopod. Audio source- Soundboard + DPA4061 mics.

Adrenalin O.D.- Bowery Electric, New York City 10/23/15 Part 1 Single Camera Version

We shot a 3 camera video of this show with soundboard/audience matrixed audio, but I checked out this raw footage last night and I thought it was suitable to post as is. I will post the multicamera one when it is done. What a show! Masterpiece performed 2x for money, and the threat of a third! Pit Chicken! And much more. It was one of the most entertaining shows I have seen in a long time. Filmed with a Canon HFG30 and internal microphone.

Adrenalin O.D.- WFMU Live in Studio, E Orange NJ 6/11/87 xfer f/ 1st gen audio tape AOD A.O.D. NYHC

I didn’t have time to transfer a tape for today’s post so I poked around the hard drive and found this classic. I digitized some tapes for the AOD reissues and this one didn’t get used, but I really loved the WFMU in studio sets. The one from 1985 with White Flag is the best one, I think. I might have listened to that tape more than their albums.
The quality on this one is decent, but you can tell that they were playing pretty loud in the studio. This performance was just before their US tour in the summer of 87. Sounds like it may be one of the first shows with Keith Hartel (he is referred to as the new kid).
