7 Seconds @ Riot Fest, Denver CO, 2015-08-28

Well I just heard that 7 Seconds is calling it a day.  Kind of a bummer.  Reminded me that I had this set tracked out on my hard drive and had never shared it for some reason.

Well better late than never.  Enjoy.

Diamianda Galas @ Reynolds Theater, Durham NC, 1994-02-17

Another Lantz tape.  This one peaked my curiosity as soon as I saw it.   Diamanda rarely tours so the odds that I ever get to see her are pretty slim I would guess.

She is pretty out there so have a taste for the avant garde before diving in.

Helmet @ Mercury Cafe, Denver CO, 1992-07-31

From the same honey hole of recording that brought us the last Sonic Youth post.  Here is a Lantz tape of Helmet at the Mercury Cafe in Denver CO on July 31st 1992.  A couple of months into the tour for In The Meantime.

They are road tight and just nail these songs to the wall.  Crushing. 

Sadly I wasn't at this show.  I didn't see Helmet until the Betty tour I think.  Maybe with Melvins?  The 90s were a pretty amazing time for music.

Lantz once again delivers a really nice sounding recording.  I can only imagine how loud it was in there.  What a treat to get to hear this after all these years.  Thanks Lantz for the loan of the 1st gen cassette masters and the chance to share these with the world.  Watch this space for a bunch of uncirculated shows.  Enjoy

Sonic Youth @ Red Rocks, Morrison CO, 1992-09-21

This is kind of exciting for me.  I went to this show back in 92 way before I was making recordings of shows or had even thought that it was something I would do.

I met Lantz at a Drive Like Jehu show a few years about and he might have mentioned that he had some tapes.  I can't recall.  A couple years later he emails me saying he has a box of live cassette tapes and wanted to know if I could do some transfers.

He had a bunch of great stuff from the late 80s early 90s including this Sonic Youth show at Rec Rocks.  So I agreed to take on the project.  Watch out for a bunch of posts from this box of tapes in the near future.

I recall that I went to see this show mostly because I was a big Primus fan at the time.  They were touring behind Seas Of Cheese still. But I was curious to see all the bands.  I recall being pretty blown away by Sonic Youth.  Super fun to be able to relive that show after so many years.

Latnz did a really nice job capturing this show.  Which is not always so easy at Red Rocks.  Enjoy.

Cult Of Luna with Julie Christmas @ Psycho Las Vegas, Las Vegas NV 2017-08-20

This was one of the acts that I was most excited to see at last years Psycho Fest.  I really loved their collaboration album Mariner and they only played a very small amount of shows to promote it.  We were blessed to have Vegas be one of them.

Powered through a brutal hang over to make it out to this and was happy to find a front row balcony seat so I could recover and let the music wash over me.

I had battery box issues for the whole trip so this is another recording done with the M10 internal mics.  Not optimal but the sound was pretty great in the Joint and I was able to set the recorder in one undisturbed spot for the whole set.  It's way better than I had expected and an enjoyable listen.

Big Business @ Fox Theater, Boulder CO, 2005-11-14

I just got Joyful Noise's Big Business boxset in the mail yesterday.  I contains the first 3 LPs and a compilation of the 3 tour EPs on vinyl for the first time ever.  It is a gorgeous collection.  So glad I sprang for it late last year.

It captures the band at their most raw and ferocious while their were still a two piece.

It reminded me of the first time I saw them play way back in 2005 at the Fox Theater in Boulder CO opening up for Minus The Bear.  So I went to the archive and pulled this one out.  It was as good as I remembered so I figured I share it with y'all

I think this was their first big tour of the states.  Enjoy
