NOMEANSNO – River Theater, Guerneville Ca. 2/19/89 xfer from 8mm master!

This was such a great lineup- Operation Ivy, NOMEANSNO and Firehose. River Theater was a trek from Sacramento, but this one warranted the drive. I know Jason Ellis was with me, was Mike Yoas there as well? I am posting this one because I heard that NOMEANSNO announced that they are not playing together as a band anymore. They were a great, energetic band. I have no idea why I decided to video this handheld from the back of the place. Sorry for the shakiness. Now that I think back, I don’t think I bought a tripod until shortly after this. Filmed with Aiwa CV80 and stock mic

Psychefunkapus- River Theater, Guerneville Ca. 2/19/89 xfer from master audiocassette

So the lineup for this show was Operation Ivy/NOMEANSNO/fIREHOSE… and psychefunkapus. Which one seems to be an odd booking? It seems like “the pus” got a lot of bookings at the River Theater. I did not go to a lot of shows there and I saw them play 2 shows there as one of the openers.

Here is another Anonymous recording- this one sounds way better than my video soundtrack. I used the stock microphone until April or May of 1989. This never circulated as far as I know

Operation Ivy- River Theater, Guerneville Ca. 2/19/89 xfer from master tape w/ NEW audio enhanced

Hm, it looks like I never posted my Operation Ivy master from River Theater. There are a bunch of posts of this show on youtube, but none of them are right off the master tape. I also enhanced it (brightened/contrast/denoise), remixed “Anonymous” master audio recording of the show, and King Bean did the audio/video synch. It is still dark (my camera did not like the soft/low lighting of River thtr), but this will probably be the definitive version.

Andy Andersen backstage River Thtr Guerneville 3/22/87 w/Cryptic Slaughter MITFR Attitude Werhmacht

Here’s something fun- MANY years back (about 34 years), Andy lent me a few of his VHS tapes. This clip of pure insanity was on one of the tapes. This is Andy’s footage from before the River Thtr show with Cryptic Slaughter, Condemned Attitude, Attitude Adjustment and Wehrmacht. There is also footage from after the show- the drive back and the return that night to KUSF studios where Keith Chatham is talking about the Condemned LP and Ron and Harald are DJ’ing.
SO MANY people to mention on here- Ron, Harald, Andy, Keith, Toby Rage?, Tony the due?, Sherwood, Jeff Becerra, Sacrilege. All being completely nuts, making fun of skinheads, and many stream of consciousness interviews. Just classic.

Condemned Attitude- River Thtr, Guerneville 3/22/87 xfer from band VHS with soundboard audio enhance

Here is an EARLY but cool post today. I was good friends with the guys in condemned attitude so they lent me their copy of the vhs tape of the show. I also got a soundboard tape either from them, or in trade from Ron Quintana.
Now that we have good hardware (vhs decks and cassette decks) and software(Adobe premiere and neat video, isotope rx), we can make this one somewhat better than before.
