Fear Gods.- Bowery Electric, New York City 11/4/22 4K UHD Multicam with Matrix Audio Adrenalin O.D.

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.

Adrenalin O.D.- Bowery Electric, New York NY 11/4/22 4K UHD Multicam with Matrix Audio AOD A.O.D.

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.

I think I rebalanced this one in Izotope Rx8 in a deperate attempt to find guitar in the mix

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.

Son Volt, Rusted Root, Blues Traveler MMW and More- HORDE Fest, PBS On Tour TV Show 7/97 VHS Master

I have been working for about the past month to get a new/improved VHS capture setup working, which would also decrease the number of computers from 5 to 4 out here. It has been quite an ordeal, but it looks like I got it dialed in as of today. I captured this one earlier in the week (just to see if the setup was working ok) so if there are any A/V synch issues, please let me know. I can’t watch this much jam band at once.
I taped this one for the 2 Son Volt songs from HORDE in Buffalo, but this includes a bunch of HORDE acts, recorded at various stops from the 1996 tour. Includes Me’Shell NdegéOcello and Son Volt from Buffalo NY 8/20/96; Medeski, Martin and Wood/Leftover Salmon from Phoenix 7/24/96; and Blues Traveler/Rusted Root from Chula Vista 7/26/96. Good people watching on this one- you can almost smell the patchouli through the screen.

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.

10000 Maniacs- Marquee at the Tralf, Buffalo NY 3/8/96 Live Soundboard xfer from 1st gen tape

Here’s a real treat today. Someone had asked me to transfer a tape that had part of this show. I figured that it would be nice to transfer this entire show as well. This is another one of Joel Gershon’s seemingly lost archives. Recorded through soundboard with band permission.
I love this era of the Maniacs- it is the full “classic” lineup of Buck/Augustiniak/Drew/Gustavson, PLUS John Lombardo from the early days (my favorite era), and Mary Ramsey on vocals. You get old 10,000 maniacs songs along with some John & Mary sings I think. Great stuff.
The mix was pretty weak so I fixed it up in Izotope RX7

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.
