Earth Crisis- Alano Club, Long Beach Ca. Mid-90s xfer from 1st gen VHS Enhanced

Wayne Triggs came by a couple of months ago and dropped off a bunch of VHS tapes for me to digitize. His friend videotaped a few hardcore shows in southern cal in the mid 90s, and this is one of them. Earth Crisis one one of their first tours. Pretty cool.

Avail- Macondo’s, Long Beach Ca 1/1/95 xfer 1st gen VHS tape complete show enhanced Tim Barry Punk

Well, I did everything I could with this one but the lighting was not very good in the first place. Well, the lighting is good on the crowd, but not the band. I took it from being super dark to semi-watchable. Thanks again to Wayne Triggs for letting me digitize and enhance these shows for posting.

Strife- Alano, Long Beach 9/10/94 xfer from 1st gen VHS enhanced Complete Show Hardcore

Late post today- it’s been a rough day. Here is another one from Wayne Triggs’ collection. His friend filmed some mid-90s hardcore shows. This weekend, I am posting sets from (I think) the same show. Here is Strife with an EARLY set. They talk about their upcoming LP, One Truth. Cool to see them in their home area in such a small place.

Integrity- Alano, Long Beach Ca 9/10/94 xfer from 1st gen VHS tape enhanced hardcore punk

Here’s the last set from Wayne Triggs’ VHS tape with Avail, Strife, Earth Crisis etc. This is a partial set from Integrity- it runs until the VHS tape cuts. I wonder if the full set (and the master tapes) are still out there somewhere.

Uncle Tupelo- Bogart’s, Long Beach Ca. 2/25/93 xfer from Hi8 master Videotape enhanced Wilco Farrar

Haha, I have had this one on my desk for over a month because I thought I needed to synch DAT audio with the video. It turns out that I forgot my DAT rig that night. I remember now- I was too worried to turn around and get the gear, because I was afraid of missing the show. It turns out that I got there WAY too early and ended up waiting forever for the show to start. Oh well.
Ken Coomer breaks a snare drum during the set and it takes forever to get it replaced.

Luna- Bogart’s, Long Beach Ca. 11/7/92 Transfer from Hi8 Master for first time Ever!

It was strange. Every time I went to Bogart’s, something bizarre and memorable happened. One time, it was when Uncle Tupelo played there and broke their snare on the first song and had a huge delay waiting for another. Another time, it was Penelope Houston and meeting Todd Nakamine, and we have been friend ever since. Or this one- Dean Wareham mentions this show in his “Black Postcards” book, because a guy in the front row was so irritating that he agreed to fight at the end of the set. Like I said, bizarre. The vibe of the club just seemed to invite it.

Steelpole Bathtub- Bogart’s, Long Beach Ca. 4/19/90 xfer from 1st gen VHS tape LIVE

Here’s another video from the old “going through lists and figuring out what’s uncirculated” project. . This is the last one that I have from the Rob Thompson recordings. Thanks to Jim Utz for sending his VHS tapes years ago to be digitized. Just like Babes in Toyland, I don’t know why this is so short. Did Rob get busted for filming? Dead battery? Did he just get tired? Dunno.

Buck Pets- Bogart’s, Long Beach Ca. 1/19/90 xfer from 1st gen VHS tape Live

Here’s another video from the old “going through lists and figuring out what’s uncirculated” project. This one comes from Jim Utz’ collection that he sent to be to be digitized a few years back. His friend (I CANNOT remember his name- same guy who filmed Nirvana at Bogarts) filmed a few shows after he moved to L.A. from the midwest and sent copies to Jim.
Side note- Universal Music told me that my video from Cattle Club was going to be used in the Nirvana “with the lights out” box set, then they asked for the contact person who had this video, so I helped them get in touch… I didn’t know that they were contacting him to use his video in place of mine in the box set. haha, oh well. Michael Meisel made sure I still got paid and they made my name in credits and easter egg as a result. That was nice of him.
