Jack (Pre- Oleander )- Sacto Active Rock Sacramento Community Cable Episode #36 1994

Jack was Oleander, before they were called Oleander! They consisted of: Doug Eldridge- Bass; Tommy Flowers- Vocals, Guitar; Ric Ivanisevich- Guitar; Henry (Mitch) Mitchell- Drums. Please tag them- I bet they’d love to see it! The audio is messed up at the beginning and there is some color bleed that was out of control of the crew. It’s still quite enjoyable.

Horny Mormons- Sacto Active Rock Community Cable Show Episode #3 3/4/91

Thanks to a kind benefactor, we now have transfers of about 30 “Sacto Active Rock” episodes straight from the VHS masters that were taped off of cable. I will post these as time allows. Here’s the pure insanity of The Horny Mormons. I noticed that Ken Doose has this posted to his YT channel. I was not sure if this was better quality or not, so here you go.

Mommy- Sacto Active Rock, Sacramento Cable 1993 Go Dog Go Magnolia Thunderfinger

Mommy was Skid Jones & Paul Niklewicz’ band after Go Dog Go, and before Skid started Magnolia Thunderfinger. You MUST watch the interview after the performance. Skid is sitting on a throne with the guys surrounding him. When Lizz asks a question, he sits there and someone offstage (PAUL) answers for him! It is bizarre. Mommy was: G.B.- Guitar, Vocals; Jones- Guitar, volcals; Timm Freeman- Drums; Pawelek Stansilaw Niklewicz- Bass.

Moist- Sacto Active Rock Community Cable Show- Episode #26 1993 The Skirts

Thanks to a kind benefactor, we now have transfers of about 30 “Sacto Active Rock” episodes straight from the VHS masters that were taped off of cable. I will post these as time allows. Here’s a band that I wish I had seen, but was never able to. Moist was Sunita, Karen and Wendy’s band prior to The Skirts. In fact, you can hear some early Skirts songs/riffs in some of their catalog! SO Awesome to be able to see them.
