Attitude Adjustment- The Farm, San Francisco Ca. 1/31/87 xfer from low gen soundboard cassette

OK, get ready for an onslaught of Shurtleff cassettes today.

Here is an attitude adjustment soundboard- this had to be one of the first shows they played after the Pusmort LP lineup broke up- they played their last shows in September of 2006, and a new version of the band was already playing shows 3 months later!
I think this tape was from the band. It is on an official Metallica- Master of Puppets cassette that they taped over!

From the collection of Gary Shurtleff

Attitude Adjustment- The Farm, San Francisco Ca. 9/7/86 1st gen from band’s VHS tape hardcore punk

I know it is pretty early for a post but I can’t wait to send this one out, because we all got an amazing surprise yesterday- you just may not know it yet. Rick Strahl (bass player for Attitude Adjustment/Condemned Attitude/Attitude etc) released his project called Anti-Trust for sale yesterday (go to to stream and/or buy the album). This is his music project with songs he has written over the years (he is a software programmer nowadays). It is KILLER, and it features Chris Kontos on drums and Andy Andersen from Attitude Adjustment/etc on vocals for a couple songs. Check the link in comments for where to buy.

As I mentioned the other day, I started to look through my older videos because I noticed that there were a few that I had not posted yet. I am halfway through numbers and “A” on one of my lists, there are a ton to do. To celebrate Rick’s project seeing the light of day, here is a really great old video of Attitude Adjustment, opening for the shitty metal version of Discharge at the Farm. House camera, soundboard audio. Hmmm… I wonder if video exists of Discharge getting garbage cans thrown at them. Who has all of these Farm tapes anyway?
From Andy Andersen’s collection

Attitude Adjustment- Ruthie’s Inn, Berkeley Ca. 6/6/86 Soundboard Audio Hardcore

I tried to post this yesterday since it was 30 years to the day… So this is one of those tapes that got me totally hooked on taping and tape trading. It sounds kinda awful at the beginning, but it is more listenable about midway through. AA only had their demo out and they played a headlining set at Ruthie’s. They ended up playing the longest set I am aware of, for this era of AA. Crazy between song banter with Andy and the crowd. It sounds like the band has a fight around “Streetwise”, 2/3 of the way through. I listened to this tape so much, I broke it and had to ask for another copy from Mark. I think Wayne Vanderkuil might have taped this one. Man, I wish he would loan me his stuff so I could transfer it.
