Accused AD- Plaid Pig, Tacoma Wa. 8/6/22 4K UHD Multicam Hardcore Punk Metal

What a wild night. I was on vacation doing family stuff and I get to the club super late. Across the street from the venue is 2 biker bars and there are literally HUNDREDS to harley davidsons lined up and people packed in the bars and flowing out onto the street. I got lucky and found a parking spot right next to one of the bars and across the street from the venue.
I get in there and this is the punkest punk club I have been to in years- dank and humid, graffiti everywhere, and the drink selection consisted of PBR, Miller and Coors light. I talk to the soundman about plugging into the board and he tells me that the outputs are blown- there is no way to get a board mix. So instead, I settle into an area that should be safe from the pit and a good place for audio… and then that side of the PA starts smoking. The soundman assures me that it is working fine, but when Blaine starts checking the mic, nothing is coming out of that main.
So I scramble over to the other side of the stage and get close to the PA, hoping I get decent audio. Nope- it was garbled and distorted. So instead of a board mix, or the rode video pro stereo mic, you get Canon HFG50 stock audio. I tried.

Here’s one from Craig Babb’s collection of master video. I looked on discogs and did the obligatory web search and I can find no information on this band. Any info about them would be appreciated. A band called the Spokes playing in a bike shop in Bellingham, how can you not love that? A band named American Standard opens the show. I did not check the entire set, but there are some covers in here. Not sure if they played originals.

Here’s another amazing gift from Steve Rogers. As I mentioned in earlier posts, Steve worked for American Recordings, which meant he got a level of access that most of us would love to get. In this one, Steve recorded a good amount of Long Fin Kille’s set, then some clips of the Ramones and DEVO. Sweet.

Rancid- DV8, Seattle Wa 10/11/95 Audio only xfer from low gen cassette East Bay Punk

This one is an audience tape, but it sounds pretty decent so I figured I’d post it. There was a guy in the northwest who taped on DAT back in the 90s, but his recordings were usually a little more bass-heavy. Regardless, sounds like a pro walkman tape at minimum.

Green River- Bremerton, Wa 7/10/87 xfer from unknown gen cassette live nakamichi dragon

The Skull post was supposed to be yesterday’s post, but youtube has been horrible in rendering videos into HD and 4k. I have had a 4k video in “processing HD version” status since Saturday night! This is today’s post.
Anyway, Eric McIntire gave me a box of stuff that had a bunch of Seattle stuff that seems uncirculated. Here’s the first- you’ll be getting these audio posts over the next week or so. Not the greatest quality, but you can still hear what’s going on.
