Jawbreaker- McGregors, Elmhurst Il 8/23/93 xfer from 1st gen VHS tape Live East Bay Punk

I was finally organizing about 500 discs on random spindles into some semblance of order, and I came across these. I digitizied a ton of stuff for Corbett and the East Bay Punk documentary, and I kept the raw files for these ones. These come from Jason Ross’ collection of great tapes that he sent me a few years back.
This tape (as with most mcgregor’s tapes) is super overexposed. Now that I know how to adjust it with the Canopus, I will need to re-transfer this sometime in the future.
I’ll be posting east bay punk/gilman/lookout related artists all week!

Samiam- McGregor’s, Elmhurst Il 11/4/92 Live xfer from 2nd gen VHS East Bay Punk Turn it Around

I took the weekend off from posting. I had posted something every day for what felt like an eternity. I figured no one would be paying attention since everyone was watching election results, speeches and the like.
Here is the last one (for now) from the VHS tapes that I digitized for the Turn it Around documentary. This is another one that Bob & Mike Byrne shot.. and some good news – it looks like we will be able to transfer the masters and clean up these (and many others) soon! Regardless of where they are posted on youtube, I will link them to the Sacramentomusicarchive website, so be sure to follow the site for updates.

Econochrist- McGregor’s, Elmhurst Il. 8/9/92 xfer from 1st gen VHS tape Live East Bay Punk

Here’s the next one in the series of VHS tapes that I digitized for Corbett and Dan, for the East Bay Punk doc. Here is Econochrist from McGregor’s. I was able to enhance this and remove the grain without making it look like you are in a dream, which is rare for a copied VHS tape. As with all of the McGregor’s shows, I hope to re-digitize them and see if I can use the canopus box to bring that exposure down a bit.

Monsula- McGregors, Elmhurst Il. 7/1/92 Live East Bay Punk Green Day Pinhead Gunpowder

Here’s today’s video- it’s another one that I digitized years ago for the Turn it Around documentary. I never really paid much attention to Monsula, but I finally gave them a good listen during The Lookouting run of shows and finally appreciated their greatness. Such a great underappreciated band.
