Vomit Launch- Cattle Club, Sacramento Ca. 10/16/92 xfer from Hi8 Master w/DAT Soundboard Audio!


I moved to L.A. in August of 1992, but happened to be back in Sacramento to visit family for this show.. and I happened to catch Vomit Launch at Cattle. This was the last time I got to see them, and it was the 2nd to last show I filmed at Cattle.

Vomit Launch- Cattle Club, Sacramento Ca. 7/13/91 DAT Master Audio Soundboard Enhanced

Here is another one from DAT#3. 3 down, 1850 to go! I posted this one a couple years ago, but this one sounds much better- it has been rebalanced with izotope.
This is probably my favorite VL show- it captures the Cattle Club vibe perfectly. Drunk Jerry trying to announce the band but no one has their shit together, Trish begging people not to leave, and lots of funny between song banter. It’s a classic in my book.

Equipment used: Sony TCD-D3 lined into soundboard, Sony PCMR500 and M-Audio Audiophile card for transfer
Rebalance in Izotope: flat Vocal, boost bass, boost drums, boost guitar.

Vomit Launch- Burro Room, Chico Ca. 9/16/89 Enhanced master with Sony D6 Audio!

This was a special show- Vomit Launch doing a headlining set in their hometown, in their prime.
Not only that, but I took my 8mm master video and brightened/denoised it so you can actually see Lindsey play guitar!
and that’s not all… thanks to Sam Habash, we have “Anonymous”‘s EXCELLENT audio courtesy of a Sony D6 & ECM909 mic, synched up to the video. Where else will you find a 75 minute VL set? Nowhere. Nowhere.

Vomit Launch- Club Me, Sacramento 12/17/88 Enhanced Master w/improved audio

I heard Vomit Launch for the first time, opening a Stewart Katz show- it may have been a 7 seconds show in late 1986 and I liked them immediately. I think that this was their first Sacramento appearance after I bought my camera- back in the Clint/Jeff O’Toole/Greg Dean promoter gap between Stewart and Brian & Jerry.
I took my master and brightened it and de-noised it, then added “Anonymous”‘s audio, courtesy of an Aiwa handheld recorder with stock mic? Or it may have been a Sony ECM909 at this point. Anyway, it sounded better than my stock mic.

Devil in the Woods “Two” Comp Tape w/ Vomit Launch, Downsiders, Bait, Sunbirds, Sinatras master xfer

Here is another tape I picked up recently- this time off Discogs. Mike Cloward(28th Day drummer) has run a great label called Devil in the Woods since 1986 (or earlier). According to Discogs, this is the label’s earliest release… but the full name of the tape is “Devil In The Woods #2: A Selection Of Music From Chico” and the catalog # is DIW4.. so there was probably at least 1 and up to 3 earlier tapes on the label.
Track list is on the cassette J-card. Stand on your head to read the rest of the J-card text. 🙂

Equipment used: Nakamichi 670ZX (sounded better than the Dragon) and M-audio Audiophile 2496 card
