Kilslug- The Rat, Boston Ma. 1/8/87 xfer from 1st gen tape Rathskeller Upside Down Cross Adolf Satan

Hi Everyone, it’s Kilslug Friday! Here is yet another Kilslug show from the infamous Rat in Boston. These shows sound like drunken parties, wish I was there.
In the early 90s, I found a cassette trader with a bunch of Kilslug master audio recordings so I snagged them all. It looks like only 1 or 2 are on YT so far, so you all get to be abused with Kilsug the rest of the week.
Listen to the “Answer the Call” album for the properly recorded versions of these songs.

Kilslug- TT the Bears Place, Boston Ma 12/11/86 xfer from 1st gen audiotape Upside Down Cross

Hi Everyone, it’s Kilslug Sunday! Here is the last in this series of Kilslug shows, again from Boston. Man, I wish they would have played California at some point. This coming week, I plan to pull out some single cam & multicam videos that we filmed/finished editing but for one reason or another never posted. It should be a good time.

For those unfamiliar with the genius of Kilslug, I have a story for you.
Back in the 80s, we had no internet to give us instant music recommendations. I was a big fan of Ron Quintana’s Metal Mania zine and would pay close attention to their record reviews. They reviewed Kilslug’s “Answer the Call” and called it “Death Death Metal”. I was like, holy shit, how heavy can this be? So I bought it and brought it home…. and I was like “What the fuck is this SHIT?”. It was this dirge of noise and Larry Lifeless’ wailing about being a worm and stuff. Over time, I forced myself to listen to it because I spent money on it… and I started to like it. I have been a fan ever since.
In the early 90s, I found a cassette trader with a bunch of Kilslug master audio recordings so I snagged them all. It looks like only 1 or 2 are on YT so far, so you all get to be abused with Kislug the rest of the week.
Listen to the “Answer the Call” album for the properly recorded versions of these songs.

Kilslug- American Legion Hall, Nashua NH 2/15/85 xfer from 1st gen audiotape LIVE Upside Down Cross

Hey, it’s Kilslug Thursday! Here is a show where they played with a little band called Dinosaur, who eventually became Dinosaur Jr… and it was DJR’s first show ever. Quality isn’t great, but it suits the band well.
Amazingly, there is a picture of this show from Kilslug’s facebook page that I er, “repurposed”. I wonder if there are any Dinosaur Jr pics.
Probably should have de-hum’d this one in izotope. Sorry about that.
