The indomitable Flipper (with ex-Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic in tow) making a FREE appearance at the Amoeba Records shop on Haight St. in San Francisco. Found out from a friend literally the hour before, and never having caught them in their heyday, plus having new kit to test out, was eager to head on out and make the drive up to the City to capture their set for posterity. Considering I went to elementary school a few blocks up the street, it was surprising that this only my second visit inside the SF Amoeba...though when I went to school in Berkeley I practically lived in the Amoeba there.
Was going to use the Nano for the main set, as I didn't want HD noise to enter into the picture, but it ended up locking up, so I went to the backup recorder, which had enough battery power to last about 30 minutes before conking out after the main set. Unfortunately, I didn't notice it had run out until a couple of minutes into the encore, which gave me just enough time to swap in the now-resuscitated Nano to cover (most of) the encore. I know there's another version out there that's complete which
may surface eventually...
The IDs for the new tracks comes from the following (now-archived) article:
On my recording, the between-song banter is interesting enough to tracksplit on its own. I have these segments labelled as 'Loose talk'...
Was a very entertaining listen, and Bruce Lose...er, LOOSE was a laugh riot, even accepting a roach that somebody down front had been puffing on. Was a bit taken aback at how much hair Krist had lost...I guess I'm not the only one slowly losing it, but Ted Falconi had more than enough dreadlocks to go around, so I didn't sweat it.
A shot goes out to the legendary Duncan. But I did edit this on a PC. :(
