Fear Gods. – Bowery Electric, New York City 11/4/22 4K UHD Single Cam Version Jack Adrenalin OD

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.

Incendiary Device- Bowery Electric, New York NY 11/4/22 4K UHD Master w/Soundboard Audio Drew Stone

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.

Equipment used: Canon HFG60 (video), Sony PCM-M10 through soundboard
Rebalance in Izotope RX8 (cranked guitar and bass)
Audio/Video synch in pluraleye 4.0

Final Summation- CBGB, NYC 5/16/06 Xfer from DV master

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.

Equipment Used: Canon(?) DV Camcorder

Black Crowes- Supper Club, NYC 7/23/96 Soundcheck xfer from hi8 Master Tape Enhanced

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.

Avail- New York City 4/21/96 Xfer from Low Gen VHS tape Enhanced Tim Barry

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.

Ned’s Atomic Dustbin- Roseland Ballroom, NYC 8/18/95 lossless xfer from 1st gen VHS Enhanced Proshot

Here is a VHS tape that I digitized for my friend Derek Purtell, since he asked about Ned’s. I got this tape from Saki Honma, who lived in Japan and taped it off Japanese TV. There was this very cool TV show there who would broadcast concerts in higher quality than other sources that eventually came out. This particular tape had a Wonder Stuff show that is very common, a Cranberries show that seems to not be anywhere, Frank Black, and more. Most of those are coming up!
Anyway, this show was introduced as the “last show” on the TV broadcast. I think this means this is the last show before their breakup in the mid-1990s and according to Wikipedia, they broke up after a show in NYC… so I think this date/venue is right.

Babes in Toyland- WDRE Underground Lounge, NYC 5/30/95 xfer from pre-fm DAT soundboard mast

Here’s another Ebay score- Babes in Toyland live in the studio, recorded for radio broadcast. This is clearly the pre-broadcast soundboard recording. There were big gaps of silence on the DAT from when they were broadcasting commercials or something. I did miss one bit of silence at about 26min. Keep listening, they do come back. The mix on that first (real) song could use some work- vocals are buried.. but the rest is good.
By the way, even though I keep posting stuff I bought off Ebay, that doesn’t mean that I am running out of material. I still have my 4,000 cassettes, 2,000 DATs, and 1,000 VHS tapes work through.. along with Jason Ross’ collection of 1,000+ VHS and cassettes, Anonymous’ cassette masters, Radley & Dal Basi’s stuff and many more. These just happen to be in front of me today.
