SNFU- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 6/11/88 xfer from master soundboard cassette

Here’s another one from Gary Shurtleff’s box of cassettes. I was also there videotaping the show. Maybe someone more talented than I am could synch the 2 sources together!

It takes about 15min for the mix to get dialed in. The guitar is WAY too loud in the mix for a bit (which is a big pet peeve of mine), then it finally settles down into a decent board mix.

SNFU- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 6/11/88 xfer from master tape enhanced live

R.I.P. Chi Pig. This was the only time I got to see SNFU, during one of the best Gilman weekends ever. Dag Nasty on Friday night, SNFU on Saturday plus opening bands like Neurosis. I was super excited to see this show, I loved those first 3 albums.
The first 15min or so is not too good, as I was on a chair in the crowd and the pit was getting dangerously close. I hopped up on stage and the video is really nice from then on out. The audio is total garbage. I have a nice soundboard tape that we will synch someday. It will need to be a manual synch, pluraleyes ain’t having it.

SNFU- 924 Gilman, Berkeley Ca. 6/11/88 xfer from master tape with enhanced SOUNDBOARD AUDIO Live

TLDR Version: Forward to 19:00 for best quality and sound.

There are a few really special shows that have both soundboard tapes, plus my master video that I had always wanted to synch together, but either the board mix was not good, video not good, or it was too difficult to synch. Now that we progressed to the point where we can fix the audio & video issues with software, I was almost ready. Then my friend Kingbean messaged me and offered to help with the painful analog audio-to-video synchs. Awesome!

For this one, the board mix was a bit all over the place. At first, the guitar overpowers the mix, then guitar drops in the mix throughout the show. As a result, I had to chop the board tape into thirds and remix each in izotope separately. I think it turned out pretty good.
