fIREHOSE- Fulton 55, Fresno Ca. 4/5/12 1080p HD Master

After seeing fIREHOSE play a somewhat sloppy first show back at Harlows , Anonymous & I drove to Fresno to see their last show, post-coachella. Side note Fresno is WAY TOO FAR to drive to a concert and back in one night. They were way tighter at this show, and the songs were played at about album speed. Good stuff!
Note- there is a multicamera video of this show on youtube as well. It looks pretty decent. This is my single camera recording of the show. Filmed with a Canon HFM30.

Firehose- Warner Grand Theater, San Pedro Ca. 2/12/94 xfer from DAT Master Aud Recording Nak CM300

I was planning on posting something different today, but I listened to this last night and realized that today is the anniversary of this show. So we heard through the grapevine(the only way to hear about stuff like this back then) that fIREHOSE were playing their last show ever at a place that was never on the radar for shows..
So I show up and there is hardly anyone there. The place is massive, so they just had everyone come on stage with them and they set up sideways on the stage- meaning they were on one end of the stage, facing the side stage area on the opposite side. It was a very odd experience.
The show was odd as well. It was a bit tense- you can hear Watt stop Ed at one point and ask him to slow it down, since it is the last show. The sound is not great- playing sideways in a huge theater causes a lot of sound issues.
I am surprised that no one has posted anything from this show. There were multiple tapers and video cameras there.
So, yeah, fIREHOSE broke up 27 years ago today.

fIREHOSE- Cattle Club, Sacramento Ca. 2/10/91 xfer from 8mm master Live

 

I think this was the last time I filmed fIREHOSE at Cattle. This show was unique because there is a guy right in front of watt who may or may not be under the influence of something. He keeps trying to touch Watt, and Mike gets pretty damned annoyed. It was painfully uncomfortable to be that close to that happening. If the high touchy guy is watching this, I’m sorry man.

fIREHOSE- Cattle Club, Sacramento Ca. 12/7/89 xfer from master tape!

Here’s another fIREHOSE show. I loved videotaping them at Cattle because I could get on the better side of the stage most of the time, since they were a 3 piece and Ed tended to set up close to center stage. I love this “fromohio” era. Watch Grant bounce people in the front row. Filmed with Aiwa CV80 and ECM909 mic

Firehose- Cattle Club, Sacramento 12/7/89 xfer from 8mm master w/ NEW Audio and Enhanced Video Watt

Here is one of the rare times that I was able to stand on the other side of the stage to film a Cattle show. This was only possible when the band was a 3 piece and they left enough room over there. I think I filmed there twice with the big PA in place, and both were fIREHOSE.
I love this era of firehose. Don’t tell Brian, but I think 1989 is my favorite Watt year. Even over the minutement. Flame away!

fIREHOSE- Club Me, Sacramento Ca. 11/19/88 Direct xfer from master

This was the first of 6 or 7 fIREHOSE shows I filmed. The venue was called “Club Obsession”, then “Club Me”, then finally Cattle Club during the glory years. This was before Jerry and Brian’s time, a guy named Clint booked the show. Filmed with an Aiwa CV80 and stock mic. A little dark but not too bad.

Firehose- Club Me, Sacramento Ca. 11/19/88 xfer from master tape with improved audio enhanced live

Here’s another new post of an old show. The original audio of this video is complete garbage, the high end distrotion on the audio track made it unlistenable. We have taken Anonymous’ better audio and remixed/synched it with the enhanced video. Massive improvement. I think that this is fIREHOSE’s first appearance in Sacramento. At least, it was the first one I knew about.
