Wilco- Rhino Records, Los Angeles Ca. 5/13/95 Acoustic Xfer from DAT Master Audiotape

Back in the pre-internet days, getting information about shows(especially smaller ones at non traditional venues) was spotty. I once missed an Uncle Tupelo show while I was following them on tour because I didn’t know!
So on the way out of the Wilco show at the Whiskey the night before, someone handed me a flyer. Wilco were playing Rhino Records the next day- I had no idea! While taping this show, I learned that Wayne Kramer was playing a week later! I went to that, then lost contact with what was happening there. That’s how it was then- you must go regularly or you lose out.
This recording sounds really nice for the equipment used- some people have mistaken it for a soundboard. I just had my head about 6 inches from a speaker on one side, and the band was playing into my other ear.

The Dragons- The Dragonfly, Los Angeles Ca. 2/7/95 xfer from 8mm master tape!

Here’s a great video of The Dragons, shot by Todd Nakamine with my camera. Todd has always had amazing musical taste, and he does it again here. He drove from his house to pick up my camera in whittier(wrong way), and then back to L.A. to the show. So glad he did it, as I ended up loving the bands he filmed.

The Muffs- Dragonfly, Los Angeles Ca. 2/7/95 xfer from 8mm master tape pt 1

I lived in the L.A. area from 1992-1995. I had 2 good friends when I lived there- Todd Nakamine was one of them. We met at a Penelope Houston show at Bogart’s shortly after I loved there in 1992 or 93. We both filmed shows. In 1995, Todd’s camcorder died, so he would drive out from Redondo Beach (I think), pick up the TR-81, then go back and tape a show. He did this a few times- once for this show, once for a fem2fem in-store performance. That’s an hour round trip, that was dedication! Anyway, Todd was always trying to get me to see this band called The Muffs. I never did, and then years later they become one of my all-time favories. Glad I have the tape now. The audio is extremely distorted- sorry about that. They must have been loud.

The Go-Go’s: Rodney on the Roq, Los Angeles Ca. 10/2/94 Audio xfer from DAT Master

Back when I lived in L.A., I would sometimes check who was on some of the weekly KROQ shows. If it was someone interesting, I would fire up the DAT machine and record it. Looking back, I regret not recording every Rodney show + any loveline show with a musical guest. Oh well, hindsight is 20/20 and all…
For this show, The Go-Go’s had reunited in 2004 and were premiering their new single “the world has lost its head” for the upcoming(at the time) 2 disc retrospective “return to the valley of the go-go’s”. This is the entire show- interviews, call-ins, songs played and commercials! It is a time capsule of mid-90s KROQ.

Go,Dog.Go!- Club Lingerie, Los Angeles Ca. 1991 Multicamera xfer from VHS Master

From Paul: Of all the clubs in LA we played, our weakest draw was at Club Lingerie on the Sunset strip. Naturally it was the only club that offered an in house recording of the show you performed, for more than nominal fee and it was delivered in almost lifelike VHS (the industry standard in 1991. The Audio was recorded directly from the board, hence the low guitar level. I did what I could to liven the sound quality.Club Linerie closed its doors in April 1995.
