Herbicide- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca 10/24/87 xfer from master soundboard cassette Rancho Cordova

It’s mediocre Monday everyone! Here is yet another recording from that infamous 10/24/87 “2 shows and a blowout on the bay bridge” day.
Herbicide were friends of ours, and we even shared a drummer- Scott Oakes. That caused a bit of a rivalry and we tended to poke fun a bit, but in all seriousness they wrote some good music.
This one is mediocre because there is absolutely no snare in the mix. Izotope can’t fix it when it’s not there. I did still boost drums 5db and guitar 6db.

Herbicide- Metalfest, Helvetia Park, Sacramento Ca 8/29/87 xfer from 2nd gen cassette Rancho Cordova

Happy mediocre monday y’all. It has been a very busy workday so I am behind on everything.
Here is a recording from one of those big metal fests they used to have at Helvetia Park. Does this park even exist anymore? I tried finding it on a map and no luck.
Anyway, like I mentioned in last week’s Herbicide post, our band CCR and Herbicide shared a drummer so there was a friendly rivalry between the bands. I used to yell “Herbicide” in the same style that the vocalist sings, as a joke. I think that this is a drunk me yelling “herbicide” into the mic or the boombox toward the end of the show. I might have had a couple of drinks before the set. Actually, I think I got thrown out of this show and talked them into letting me pay again to get back in.

Herbicide- Lethal Dose Demo 1987 xfer from band demo tape Sacramento

Hey everybody. I don’t know if you saw or noticed, but my 2 copyright strikes went away so my channel is public again. If you received a ton of new post notifications from me, that’s why. Back to the one post a day cadence. from here on out.
Herbicide was a punk band out of Rancho Cordova, a suburb of Sacramento. They recorded a couple of demos and played quite a few shows in the late 80s, then broke up and disappeared. Their drummer, Scott Oakes, was the drummer in my only band back in the 80s. Scott passed away many years ago in a house fire. Tragic.
