Naked Raygun- Kennel Club, San Francisco 3/20/91 xfer from master tape enhanced w/ soundboard audio

I debated whether to do the enhance/audio/video synch on this one, but the degrain worked so well I figured what the hell. The reason I waffled was because of the soundboard tape- this is the strangest board tape I have ever heard. The mix is all over the place, and about halfway through the set, the guitar gets so loud that it bleeds over everything else. I cut the audio from the show into 4 pieces so I could rebalance the mix differently when the mix changed. There is about a 10min spot where side “A” of my board tape ended and the tape flip didn’t happen (from 51:00 to 60:00ish).
It sounds funny at times (especially in the 2nd half of the set, I really had to push the rebalance) but it was the best I could do. Huge thanks to Kingbean for synching all of the little pieces together.

Monks of Doom- Kennel Club, San Francisco Ca 022691 w/Soundboard Audio xfer from master tapes Enhanc

I’m late to post today, but trust me, this is one to watch. The video was pretty well- lit so all I had to do was degrain/denoise and it came out great. The audio is fantastic- there was this guy in SF named Adam Blinn who would plug a mixer into the soundboard and remix the show live and this one sounds amazing. I tried to reconnect with him or a couple years after that and eventually lost contact. I wonder where he is now…
Anyway, enjoy. Between the performance and the audio and video quality, this is probably the best video I have seen of the early days.

Buffalo Tom- Kennel Club, San Francisco Ca. 2/13/91 xfer from 8mm master LIVE

Thanks to John Conley- he introduced me to Buffalo Tom by taking me to this show, and they ended up being one of my favorite bands. This video is DARK, but they intended it to be dark as there was a psych light show happening behind them. I can ask my friend Jim Mclain to brighten this, but I kinda like it as is.

Buffalo Tom- Kennel Club, San Francisco Ca. 2/13/91 Live Xfer from master Brightened

So, remember that ultra-dark video of Buffalo Tom that I posted a few months ago? Well, Jim McLain came by last weekend and helped me get started on improving the brightness and contrast of my old videos- thanks Jim! A LOT of my old stuff will now be posted, or re-posted and you’ll actually be able to see them!

Monks of Doom- Kennel Club, San Francisco Ca. 7/25/90 xfer from 8mm master enhanced

The kennel had those psychedelic light show guys at a lot of their shows in 1990. It’s cool to see, but it makes the stage darker. I was finally able to enhance this one so it is a bit more watchable. Greg was super dark before.

Mudhoney- Kennel Club, San Francisco Ca. 7/17/90 Xfer from 8mm Master Enhanced

The Kennel would sometimes bring in a psychedelic light show group to project their show behind the band. It was cool, but the band played in near darkness except for the light show. These videos were close to unwatchable before because they were so dark. They are much better now that we can brighten & enhance them.

Monks of Doom- Kennel Club, San Francisco Ca 1/17/90 VIDEO


Hi, here is my master video of Monks of Doom from Kennel in 1990. This was a crazy night. I caught a ride from promoter Brian McKenna’s brother and they ended up going to a park after the show to hang out and I did not get home until 5am. Work the next day was awesome. Anyway, I have always loved the earlier Monks stuff the most so this one gets upped first, for Mr. Joe Burns.

This is part 1, you can search the title on youtube to see the rest of the show.

Johnny Thunders- Kennel Club, San Francisco Ca 10/24/89 xfer from 1st gen cassette

OK, I had very little sleep and a 6am conference call. I have about 15min to kill before getting the kids ready to school so let’s see how many of these I can post.
Here is a Johnny Thunders recording done with my equipment back in 1989. It’s not too bad considering the Kennel Club’s (now called The Independent) acoustics.
