Lagwagon- Berkeley Square, Berkeley Ca. 8/26/94 xfer from 1st gen VHS tape enhanced

Brian McKenna mentioned that today is the anniversary of a show that he promoted at Grind skate park in west sac- Lagwagon headlined. I wasn’t at that one, but here is a different Lagwagon show that took place about a year before in Berkeley. Not too bad for a 1994 audience video!

Mudhoney- Berkeley Square, Berkeley Ca. 8/29/89 master audiotape transfer Sony D6 Pro Walkman Grunge

Here is another show that Anonymous taped with his D6. It was a little thin so I EQ’d it to bring up the low end. Sounds great! I don’t always listen to 100% of everything I post- I just don’t have time- but I enjoyed this one so much that I kept on listening. I forgot to trim the blank space after Side A, so there is 2 minutes of dead air from 40:00 to 42:00, then it picks back up.
This was about a week before the Cattle Club show- they played SF and So. Cal before hitting Sac and Chico then heading home.
Here is setlist and show details from the Mudhoney Tourbook website.

8/29/89 Berkeley Square. Berkeley, CA (50 min)
Supported By: The Lemonheads

Set: Magnolia Caboose…, Get into Yours, No one Has, Sweet Young Thing, If I Think, Here Comes Sickness, The Father I Go, Come to Mind, Chain that Door, Flat Out Fucked, When Tomorrow Hits, Dead Love
Encore: In ‘N’ Out of Grace, Touch Me I’m Sick

Notes: Get into Yours, The Farther I Go, Flat out Fucked and When Tomorrow Hits are performed for the first known times. Come to Mind is played for the first known time with the music that appears on the recorded version, and the rave-up of The Farther I Go had previously been played as part of the music to the early Come to Mind. After The Farther I Go Steve is asking for some adjustments to be made to his monitor. Someone in the crowd is shouting about Mudhoney manager Bob Whittaker while he’s doing this, so he shouts, “Bob’s in jail, shut up!” to which Mark adds, “Free Bob! Free Bob!” It’s apparently sweltering in the club, and before If I Think, Mark announces, “You can turn off the lights if it’ll make it any colder.”

The Dickies- Berkeley Square, Berkeley Ca 4/30/89 xfer from master tape Enhanced Live partial show

Hi Everyone,
I could use your help on this one. I had recently bought the Sony ECM-909 microphone for my Aiwa CV-80 camera and filmed the Dickies. I FORGOT to turn on the mic for the first half of the show, so this is only the part of the show with audio. If anyone has audio of the complete set from this show, please let me know as I can synch it up with the (currently) silent video. Thanks!

Dickies- Berkeley Square, Berkeley Ca. 4/30/89 mastertape xfer enhanced COMPLETE SHOW improved audio

Man, I owe Kingbean, Chris Dodge and Daniel Hague a huge debt of gratitude. I filmed this show over 30 years ago and forgot to plug my microphone in for the first half of the set. I have had silent footage this entire time. When I posted half the set and put out a call for any audio of the show- Daniel Hague came through. He had a tape of this show from Chris Dodge’s collection- I think Chris might have taped it himself- which not only made the show complete, but improved the audio of the second half! Wow!!
After working up the audio, it was off to Kingbean for the synch. This one was a huge pain in the ass for him, since most synchs are keyed upon the snare hit and I rarely showed the drummer. He did a great job. Thank you.

Throwing Muses- Berkeley Square, Berkeley Ca. 3/28/89 xfer from master audiotape

Here’s an upload for a friend of Corbett’s- John Kelly.
So let me talk about the taper- Anonymous. He is my best friend and we have been friends for over 30 years. We met at the legendary exploited/DRI/Dr. Know/Dag Nasty show. Back in the 80s, he was not only working to get the best quality audio recordings (he bought his Sony D6 first, then I HAD to have one), but he went to a lot of really cool shows that I blew off. This is one of them. Looking at his tapes, I see recordings by The Lemonheads(I didn’t go), Swans(Went), and more from Berkeley Square. Thanks to anonymous!
