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- 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.

Concrete Blonde, DOORS Janes Addiction, fIREHOSE, Los Lobos- Musicalifornia TV Show 1st gen VHS 1988

OK, here is a repost of the musicalifornia from last week. It took a week to repost because I learned that the Youtube trimming algorithm sucks. I had to chop off EIGHT minutes (the firehose and janes addiction videos) to get it to take.

Here is the last Musicalifornia episode (Episode 13, 1988) that I have. These were a blast to see and share. We did discover through sharing these, that The Pandoras’ Karen Basset is married to the gentleman who produced this series. He has been digitizing his Beta SP masters! Maybe the rest of these episodes will see the light of day sometime.
The Los Lobos- Cinco de Mayo footage on this one is GOLD. Wish it was longer. The Concrete Blonde live footage is well done, too.

Thanks to Erik Flannigan for sending these my way, to Mike Ziegler for the transfer, and to Rick Gershon for holding onto the VHS tape for all these years.
