Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks- The Chapel, San Francisco Ca. 10/1/16 Pavement Complete Multicam

his one has a somewhat funny story. I got the ok to film from Scott(Spiral) but only from 1 angle. Since the show was packed, the club stuck me in this corner by the soundboard. I had 3 cameras, so why not use them? This is the first(and probably only) multicam that I will do, which all 3 angles are filmed fromt he exact same spot. Kinda cheesy, but I tried to make each angle unique.
HUGE thanks to Richard Pearsall for stepping in and doing the full edit of the show!
Filmed with 2 Canon HFG30s(one on tripod, one monopod operated by me) and 1 Canon HFG10(mounted to the pole). Audio via Rode video pro stereo mic. Encore has a bunch of pavement songs.

Pavement- Lollapalooza, Irvine Meadows Amphitheater, Irvine Ca. 8/14/95 DAT Master xfer 2nd Stage

I wasn’t planning on posting this one today, but a few people asked me for it and it happened to be on the audio PC’s hard drive, already transferred from DAT. Awesome set- Opens with you’re killing me, includes Maybe Maybe, Box Elder, Forklift and a bunch of stuff off of Slanted and Enchanted. At the time, I thought it was the best show ever.

Pavement- E-Werk, Cologne, Germany, 6/26/95 Full Set

No lineage or taping info provided. Perhaps this is known, but it wasn’t included in the YouTube footage. As I do some digging, I will add the information here.

Pavement has been featured before on SMA, but not thoroughly. As they formed in Stockton, they of course qualify for inclusion here. A thorough examination of their available output will probably require many, many hours, but as I encountered a tape of the audio (inferior quality to what was online already, sometimes that’s how it goes) for this show while working on other things, I figured including it here would be helpful.

Pavement- Cadillac Club, Fresno Ca. 9/16/94 DAT Master Soundboard xfer Rebalanced Live band

Here’s one that I taped with the DAT machine a little over 27 years ago. I missed the first 4 songs, and I can’t remember exactly why. I recall being super tired(I went to both Palace shows the 2 nights before and went to work during the day) and getting stuck in bad L.A. weekend traffic. It was a long drive- it would have been 3.5 hours with no traffic and I think it took me about 5hrs to get ther. I must have come in late. Shoutout to Remko for plugging me right in to the soundboard.
It was an odd show. I remember it being very loose- to the point that the band were having a “make your instrument fart” contest between songs. The DAT machine I used to record the show was out of alignment (they would break down about every 6 months) and it had some static when I had played it in the past, but I don’t hear it on this transfer. Sony PCM-R500 for the win!
I rebalanced this in Izotope to bring up vocals and guitar. I thought about re-doing it, but the vocals come up later in the set. Good enough.
Oh, and check out that ticket stub. $10 with a $3 fee, and I bought the ticket less than 2 weeks before the show. That’s quite a bit different than buying $100 tickets a year in advance…

Pavement- Great American Music Hall, San Francisco 4/23/94 9pm Set Xfer from DAT Master

1994 was such a fun year. I was able to follow a couple of my favorite bands around and record them. Pavement was one of those bands. They had just released Crooked Rain, so I went and saw them in Phoenix/So. Cal and the bay area in April and Fresno/So Cal in September. It was so fun to see a band at their peak, obviously having fun up there.

Pavement- Great American Music Hall, San Francisco 4/23/94 DAT Master Soundboard Rebalanced Indie

Back in 1994, I took some vacation time and followed Pavement around Airzona and California… twice. Scott (Sprial Stairs) and their soundman Remko Schouten were super cool to me and allowed me to plug into the soundboard with my DAT. Almost all of these mixes sounded great as they were recorded, but I was able to rebalance this one and make it sound even better. This is the last of 5 shows from the spring run with the band.

Pavement- The Roxy, Phoenix Az 4/20/94 xfer from DAT Master Soundboard Rebalanced Complete Set Live

In 1994, I was lucky enough to tape 8 Pavement shows through the soundboard with my DAT recorder. Huge thanks to Scott and Remko for making it happen. This was the first show I did in a 5 show run in April of 1994. I drove from L.A. over to Phoenix on Wednesday, then Hollywood the next night, then 3 sets in San Francisco over the weekend.
Then I flew to the Midwest the next weekend to film Uncle Tupelo’s last shows ever. I would say that was a pretty productive 2 weeks.

Anyway, this one was the weakest mix of the 1994 shows. It starts off with the guitar too low in the mix, then you hear the guitar zooming in and out of the mix for a bit from 6-12 minute mark. By the 15 minute mark, it stabilizes. My rebalance is focused on the set from 15 minutes on- there are short parts where the guitar or bass is WAY too loud before that. FYI.

Pavement- Reading Festival, England 8/30/92 Proshot xfer from 1st Gen VHS Tape Japanese TV Live

I was looking at my old VHS tapelist over the weekend, because I could have sworn I had another SNFU Gilman show from 1987 but it must be gone… then I saw this tape and figured that would be fun to digitize.
Back in the mid-90s, I traded with a lady name Saki Honma. She was the biggest Uncle Tupelo fan in Japan- she even flew from Japan to St. Louis to see Tupelo’s last shows in 1994. She would tape stuff off of Japanese TV (they broadcast KILLER stuff in nice quality) and send it to me. This one is a VHS copy off of her SVHS master.
This clip has been posted to youtube 2 other times, but I think this is slightly better quality. I will be posting other bands from this day throughout the week.

Pavement- Cattle Club, Sacramento Ca. 5/19/92 xfer from DAT Master Audio Malkmus Indie

This was an eagerly anticipated show, and this was also the first time I got to see Pavement play. I thought this was their first west coast show ever, but shows that a show took place in Davis in 1989. Hmm, I never knew. We were friends with Scott K (Spiral Stairs)- he even played bass in my friend roommate’s band for a show in 1990. We also knew Gary well, as my friends had recorded at his studio in Stockton. I wonder how he’s doing…

OH, and as a side note, one of my biggest taping screwups happened the next night. I video’d the entire 90 min set from Kennel Club and forgot to turn the mic on my camera on. Silent video. I was running on about 4 hours sleep and then drove to SF for the show, so I was dead tired. I then taped over almost all of it because I never thought people would care about silent video footage. I might have 5min of it on a tape somewhere.
