This post is to fully document the MBV/Spectrum Concourse Design Center SF show, which is probably the loudest show most people who went have ever been to!

Peter Kember and company playing as "Spectrum"...almost lost in the Noise that is MBV.

The last gasp for this particular iPod as it had enough of being subjected to the aural assault of MBV and locked up.  Ended up having to pull out the HD and having to hook it up and recover the data on there, unfortunately damaging the internal cable soldered to the unit.  I did recover the MBV set (recorded up to midway of 'Soon') but the copy dmaster shared on DIME is far superior to mine, so I  don't think I'll be seeding it.  [note: mine will make its debut here!]

I had do some tweaking with this to get it to sound listenable, involving dealing with brickwalling due to overdriving the mic-in, parametric re-EQ and notching out an annoying 8500hz whine that for 
some reason I was picking up.  I did shortly afterwards purchase an Edirol... There's also a brief stutter at 3:55 of 'Transparent Radiation' no idea what caused that.  Nor can I explain the slagging-off of EAR at the start, to each their own I guess.

obEarplugs:  yes, I did take out my earplugs for MBV, which weren't the venue-supplied ones. For about 5 seconds.  One would have to have been insane or stoned (or at the very back) to listen to Shields and Co. without them, even to the songs before YMMR's 'holocaust' section.

PLEASE:  Do not redistribute for material gain or make MP3 transcodes of this recording publicly available

Transparent Radiation (1:30, the second half audio-only)  (chasingphantoms)


This is the only known video for Spectrum, though I did find a clip from them playing at the Hemlock Tavern that got missed in my original compilation of Hemlock live clips.

Excellent quality!

Because of the AGC (auto gain control), it's a pretty crappy recording.

And that was the end of life for my Hi-MD recording.  Lasted all of 5 shows.

Here's the better quality recording, using fairly high-end mics for the SPLs (sound pressure levels) at this show, which were ridiculously loud...
