Attitude- The Place, Davis Ca. 6/3/88 Enhanced xfer from 8mm master Adjustment Condemned

This was the only time that I video’d these guys, despite the fact that they(Attitude Adjustment/Condemned Attitude/Attitude) were probably my favorite band from 1986-1988 or so. That front line of Srahl/Andersen/Scapparo were GREAT.
So it is unfortunate that this video sucks. It is very poorly lit and sounds awful,. I did what I could with Adobe/Neat.

Attitude- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 4/8/88 xfer from soundboard master cassette

Here’s another one from Gary Shurtleff.
This is one of the better gilman soundboard mixes I have heard, but it is a little bright… and Andy is hilarious as usual. I forgot that they stopped advertising bands at Gilman for a while. The concept was that people should just show up and be surprised. They started flyering again when no one was showing up. Andy’s opening wisecrack is GOLD.

R.K.L.- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 1/16/88 xfer from VHS Master Live Enhanced

Here is the second concert I ever filmed. I did not have a camera yet, but Andy Andersen & Wayne Vanderkuil rented a camera to record Attitude and they let me borrow it for RKL’s show(thanks guys). Special thanks to Jason Ellis for loaning me a used VHS tape that he had in the car so I could tape the RKL master over the top. PUNK ROCK.
Btw, I still don’t have a clean copy of that Attitude show…

Attitude- The Farm, San Francisco Ca 10/24/87 xfer from master cassette boombox recording Adjustment

The more I look at this flyer, the more it kills me that I missed so many bands. I got there during Front Line (missing Christ on Parade), then left after RKL (missing everyone from Verbal Abuse up). I was all paranoid about missing Attitude at Gilman that night and left too early. D’oh.
Just like the Front Line tape, this one improves after about 5min- vocals are totally buried at first. . It sounds like nobody gets a soundcheck and they figure it out as they go.
Thanks to Ron Quintana for posting this flyer which prompted me to pull and digitize these ones from the mountain of tapes.

Attitude- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca 10/24/87 xfer from master soundboard cassette Adjustment Condemned

Continuing the story from yesterday- we get the flat tire changed and one of those little bike tires is now on the car, and we get to Gilman way too early. We saw Sacramento/Rancho Cordova’s Herbicide open the show and I should be able to post that soundboard next week.
The mix changes on this one so much that I can’t fix it. The only thing that was consistently fixable is the snare, so I bumped that up 6.5db in the mix.
Features me singing with Andy(badly) during Thoughts of Equality.

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.

Attitude- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca 5/23/87 xfer from master soundboard tape rebalanced Adjustment

Wayne’s collection continues to deliver the goods. This mix was pretty weak, but it was so clean that I was able to push Izotope harder than usual and make it decent. The mix fluctuates, so you will hear the snare way up in the mix to start then fading away later in the set. Overall a good mix for the time frame.
Attitude clearly went over time at this show- you could hear the sound man telling them that they had 1 more song.. so they play 2 or 3 more. Fun set- this may be the first show as “Attitude” after Keith left and they dropped the Condemned from the name.
