Borman 6- Spanky’s, Sacramento 7/17/87 xfer band archive master Soundboard rebalanced Rebel Truth

I had a video planned to post today, but the youtube copyright bots had other plans. Here is another Borman 6 post- this time it is a board tape from Spanky’s in sacramento. I am surprised as to the quality of the mix- whenever I tried to tape at Spankys, the board mix was terrible. In fact, I have 1 tape that is all vocals. That’s all they mic’d.
You are probably wondering why the photo for this post is a batteries & bulbs store. This store is the building that used to by Spankys. I tried to find a picture of the club from back in the 80s. No luck.

The Borman 6- First Demo 1986 xfer from master audio demo tape Sacramento Funk Band Rebel Truth

Here’s a post for one of my oldest music friends, Greg Dean. We met in 1982(I think) while working at Valley Parcel Service- a sh*tty second rate delivery company. We took the stuff legitimate companies like UPS wouldn’t touch. We had a forklift that blew black smoke. Hey, maybe that’s why I hock stuff up all the time.
Anyway, Greg and I became good friends- he turned me on to Motorhead and Girlschool, and I helped him discover “newer” bands (in 1983) like Queensryche. Greg bailed from the parcel company to manage The Borman Six and promote some local shows. I think he moved to L.A. with the band in the late 80s.
From there, he hasn’t been up to much.. he only started one of the best live sound companies in L.A., supporting multiple Warped tours and touring with KMFDM among others. He then became the leader of a company that performs stage setup/teardown/tour logistics for BIG bands like Green Day and Megadeth. How cool is that?
Anyway, back to The Borman Six. Greg lent me his Borman six tapes about 10 years ago so I could digitize them for him. I’ll post one or two per week here for the next few weeks.
Here is their first one- the first demo from 1986. I didn’t think to take pictures or scan the tape covers when I borrowed these, so I don’t have much info. If Greg (or others) can fill me in on details (tracklist, studio, engineer) that would be cool.

NOTE: Kevin Lee (from Rebel Truth) on vocals.
