Revolting Cocks – Do Ya Think I’m Sexy (Live) Cold Waves L.A. 2017 Nov. 11th 2017 The Regent Theater.
Recorded by: Marty Sertich
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.

Equipment used: Sony TCD-D3 DAT & Coresound battery box binaural mics w/bass rolloff.
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.

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.

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.

These next videos are ones that I (nor Jim, Zoran etc) filmed. Since Groovie Ghoulies were based in Sacramento (and Kepi went to high school with me), they get posted. Here is a CLASSIC multicam of an early incarnation of the band, when they were based in L.A. That hair is amazing.
