I was organizing the 1TB worth of footage that I shot from last weekend and this one angle turned out good enough to post right away. This is Jack Steeples from AOD’s new band which includes members of Ruth Ruth, Headwound, Blisters and more. Give them a listen- they are very good. I shot 5 angles (this is one of them) and recorded 3 high quality audio sources (this is not one of them), so a full edit is coming someday. Since I was orchestrating 7 different recording machines, it took me a couple minutes to adjust levels on this one. It gets better after about 3min.

Posting 11 days of videos- here is day 1: I traveled to New York/New Jersey last month to see 2 AOD shows. This band I had never heard of were opening, so I decided to save battery and memory card space and only film with 1 camera. Well, that was a mistake because these guys ripped and they featured Antidote vocalist and film producer/NYHC Chronicles host etc Drew Stone. Also featured my old friend from The Undead Tristan D’Graves. At least I was able to get the board mix (which had NO guitar all night) to rebalance to sound reasonably well.

I posted the Fear Gods. show from Dingbatz a couple months back and put this one in the FIFO queue because the audio was not good in the club that night- there was no guitar anywhere. Not in the board mix, Not in the 2 audience sources I had… but I was able to take Jim McLain’s 3 source matrix and pop it into Izotope and it found a little guitar to boost. Audio is actually good now! Man, I love this band. Great classic punk sound. They have a couple of songs that are total earworms that I end up singing along to for days after. One is early in the set, another is at 10:40. Check it out. They also have a 7″ and CD out.

Happy Friday! It’s turning out to be a good day. Here’s the first night of the 2 day “tour” to promote the release of the great book “if it’s tuesday, this must be Walla Walla- the wacky history of Adrenalin O.D.” We held off on doing this one because of the audio- I don’t know what the deal was, but there is no guitar anywhere in the club or soundboard mix. It gets better about midway through when Keith Hartel hits the stage and Jack moves from bass to guitar. Also, I thought I found a good place for the drum gopro, and a cymbal cut the view of Dave’s head off. Some people might say that’s a good thing, but we left it out of the video edit. So, 4 camera with suspect audio. Best we could do.

My laptop decided to die so I am tapping the daily post out on my phone. man, I hate using my phone for computer tasks. anyway, here is another one from Dan Pettit’s collection. this is a bonus live show at the end of the demo. to give you a sense of timing, this tool place the week after sonic youth’s somewhat famous shows there.

Jordan Wolfe stopped by today and dropped off a BIG box of tapes. There is a lot of stuff you will want to see, but this is the one that he wanted to post first. FS at CBGB!
I will let Jordan tell the story(and edit the post here), but he told me that they *really* wanted to play CBGB before it closed. A few months before it was scheduled to shut down, they received a call to open a show. So they did what any reasonable band would do- they drove from California to NYC to play the show!
Transferred from Jordan’s DV master. Audio is distorted, but you get the idea.

In our search for better audio for Steve Rogers’ videos, we found that there was a nice sounding soundboard tape of the Crowes from this date. I asked the taper for the files and he sent them over for synch. Well, it appears that the band played 2 sets that night and the board tape is not this show. Damn, we tried.
Edit: Steve let me know that this is the soundcheck. Mystery Solved.

Here’s another one from Wayne Triggs’ stack of VHS tapes. Man, this one is super low gen- it almost looks like a master tape, but that’s impossible. No smears/color bleed common with copied VHS tapes. The date is a guess, but it looks the same as a different angle of the show entitled “AVAIL NYC 4/21” on youtube. The poster put them up on 4/22/06, so I am running with it. Someone tell me if I have it wrong.
