Attitude- El Dorado Saloon, Sacramento Ca 9/2/87 xfer from master cassette tape Attitude Adjustment

I am running late today- I almost didn’t have time to put one up. Here is another Anonymous master tape that he did with the little handled Aiwa recorder. That deck/mic combo had no low end at all, but they are pretty crisp and they EQ well. It’s listenable.
I remember hanging out with Andy and the band before a show, but I can’t remember if it was this one. I know that I didn’t stay for the actual concert. Great lineup- C.O.C., D.I., Attitude as a late sub for Reagan Youth.

Andy Andersen backstage River Thtr Guerneville 3/22/87 w/Cryptic Slaughter MITFR Attitude Werhmacht

Here’s something fun- MANY years back (about 34 years), Andy lent me a few of his VHS tapes. This clip of pure insanity was on one of the tapes. This is Andy’s footage from before the River Thtr show with Cryptic Slaughter, Condemned Attitude, Attitude Adjustment and Wehrmacht. There is also footage from after the show- the drive back and the return that night to KUSF studios where Keith Chatham is talking about the Condemned LP and Ron and Harald are DJ’ing.
SO MANY people to mention on here- Ron, Harald, Andy, Keith, Toby Rage?, Tony the due?, Sherwood, Jeff Becerra, Sacrilege. All being completely nuts, making fun of skinheads, and many stream of consciousness interviews. Just classic.

Condemned Attitude- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca 3/20/87 xfer from low gen soundboard cassette rebalanced

The clearout of the hard drive continues. I think this was during the early days of Gilman where they would not announce the bands- people were expected to just show up and see who played that night. If this is the right show (I digitized this months ago), you can hear Andy joking about it.
This board mix was super thin and tinny, and it sounded sped up to me. I slowed it down by 7% and it STILL sounds fast, but it is hard to tell with Andy’s vocal delivery. I boosted bass(+5), Drums (+1) and guitar(+5) in Izotope RX8. I also dropped about 3db off the highs because it was so bright.

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!

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?

Attitude Adjustment- Fender’s Ballroom, Long Beach Ca. 9/6/86 2nd gen VHS with Soundboard audio punk

Here’s another synch job that I have been hoping to get done for years. We had the video (not great quality, but this is a 1st gen from Andy Andersen) with HORRIBLE audio plus a separate soundboard audio tape that starts off kinda weird but improves after about 5min. Thanks to King Bean, we now have at least a listenable video. It was all distortion before.

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.
