Bliss- Cattle Club, Sacramento Ca. 2/16/90 xfer from master tape!

The 80’s/early ’90s were an interesting time. You never knew when skinheads were going to come and screw up a show. Well, of all shows they decide to jump on stage during a Bliss show (!??!!) and bark about their hate. Then, during the last song Grant gets into it with the guy and they start rolling around on stage, fighting during the last song. Then chaos ensues and (I think) a team effort gets the skinhead out of the club. Just bizarre- Bliss is a band reminiscent of old SST acts, why would these guys even show up? Anyway, thanks Grant for bouncing.

Bliss- Club Me, Sacramento Ca. 12/17/88 xfer from 8mm master tape LIVE

Here is a video from the first time I filmed Bliss, opening for Vomit Launch. We had seen them up in Nevada City a while before this, but they left a great impression. They were sac’s resident SST sounding band, right down to Brandon’s Greg Ginn style Plexi guitar. Filmed with Aiwa CV80 and stock mic. We have a soundboard tape of the show, so if anyone wants to synch them, let me know!

Bliss- Club Me, Sacramento Ca. 12/17/88 Enhanced master video with Soundboard Audio

***NOTE: Forward the video to about 10min for soundboard audio***
I saw Bliss open up that drunken AVM show in August of 1988 and was hooked immediately- they were reminiscent of the more obscure SST stuff like Abecedarians, Always August, etc. Brandon even had the Greg Ginn style clear plexi guitar!
Me and “Anonymous” went to Club Me (pre cattle club) to check Bliss and Vomit Launch out. We got the OK to do a soundboard.
My friend Sam (Thehappyone on youtube) did the audio synch on these. It is not easy to synch multiple analog sources. Thank you.
