EXODUS


artist: EXODUS (San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA)
venue: L'Amour East 
location: New York City, New York, USA
date: 02 April 1985
length: 

As with previous EXODUS live recordings, I've edited the between song banter and song introductions as separate tracks for your convenience. I highly recommend a listening session that includes only Bayloff.

ARTIMUS PYLE


artist: ARTIMUS PYLE (San Francisco, California, USA)
venue: Mission Records
location: San Francisco, California, USA
date: 16 December 2001
length: 13 minutes

I'm pretty sure this was our last show with Scottzy playing drums, and he was clearly on fire. Never mind the parts where John and I are trying to keep up with him, just listen to the last minute of "Buried Alive" into the beginning of "Civil Dead" and you'll understand why he was such a force behind the kit.

FACES OF DEATH

artist: FACES OF DEATH (Half Moon Bay, California, USA)
venue: Mission Records
location: San Francisco, California, USA
date: 29 December 2001
length: 8 minutes

HERE
This show was opening for R.A.M.B.O., and it's entirely possible that the band might have been based in a different peninsular suburb.

CRUCIAL ATTACK

artist: CRUCIAL ATTACK (Reno, Nevada, USA)
venue: Mission Records
location: San Francisco, California, USA
date: 06 January 2002
length: 19 minutes

HERE
As with many Mission Records recordings shared here, this file includes the product of a live mic for several minutes before the set. Perhaps only entertaining for the few readers who might have been around at the time, you can hear a young(er) Jensen, Joe, perhaps a Rob Coons, myself and numerous others in the background...or you can just delete that track because you are listening on a computer.

SANGRE AMADO


artist: SANGRE AMADO (San Francisco, California, USA)
venue: Mission Records
location: San Francisco, California, USA
date: 10 November 2001
length: 50 minutes

1) "Here's some shit you won't understand, so fuck you."
2) "It's time for the secret weapon...are you sure you're ready? OK: John Wayne. Fucking secret weapon motherfucker."
3) "You how hard it is to find a fucking bass player to play metal in San Francisco motherfucker? It's very difficult, bitch. We're gonna play one more for you. First track off of our second album....that nobody knows because you're fucking posers, bitch. Only metal band in San Francisco, and you don't know what it is, so you're a fucking poser." [audience member shouts song title] "I eat my words."

SLAYER


artist: SLAYER (Los Angeles, California, USA)
venue: Dynamo
location: Eindhoven, HOLLAND
date: late May/early June 1985
length: 84 minutes

Recorded on SLAYER's first European tour and widely circulated via video, this recording is top notch and screaming. There's a reason why this band is the bench mark...also, some of the between song banter must be heard to be believed (and I'm specifically talking about the introduction to "Necrophiliac" here).

DANZIG

artist: DANZIG (New Jersey I think, but who really cares?)
venue: ??
location: ??
date: ??
length: 14 minutes

HERE
I think solo DANZIG totally sucks. Almost without exception. He plays "All Hell Breaks Loose" on this recording, and that's my favorite MISFITS song. But still...

VOETSEK

artist: VOETSEK (Bay Area, California USA)
venue: Mission Records
location: San Francisco, California, USA
date: 29 December 2001
length: 11 minutes

HERE
FACES OF DEATH and MORMONS ON BIKES also played this show, and their sets will appear here eventually. R.A.M.B.O. and GREEN ANGEL played too, but their sets were lost to a malfunctioning and screeching cassette along with the second half of the VOETSEK set. So enjoy your eleven minutes.

DIE KREUZEN


artist: DIE KREUZEN (Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA)
venue: Cafe Voltaire 
location: Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA
date: 04 January 1986

GRABASS CHARLESTONS // /BEFORE THE FALL


artist: BEFORE THE FALL (??, USA)
venue: ??
location: ??
date: 23 March 2002
length: 28 minutes

artist: GRABASS CHARLESTONS (Gainesville, Florida, USA)
venue: ??
location: ??
date: ??
length: 11 minutes

Both sets included, though the GRABASS CHARLESTONS starts in the middle of their set, when they are already sweaty and playing covers. The live recordings are of similar quality, so it's possible that this was the same show, but it's also possible that someone saw fit to record over Gainesville's finest with the crooning of BEFORE THE FALL.

artist: PELVIS WRESTLIES (Reno, Nevada, USA)
venue: The Stage At Harrah's, Harrah's Casino
location: The Biggest Little City On Earth
date: ?? 2012
length: 23 minutes

Exactly as the title suggests, this live set is from Harrah's Casino in Reno. I guess I can add playing a casino to my bucket list.

artist: NIGEL PEPPERCOCK (San Francisco/Oakland, California, USA)
venue: Mission Records
location: San Francisco, California, USA
date: 25 August 2001
length: 46 minutes

Total time includes just over ten minutes of ridiculous dance jams the band used as an intro, these are cataloged as a separate "album" for the deleting convenience of the less adventurous among you.

NO TIME LEFT


artist: NO TIME LEFT (Buffalo, New York, USA)
venue: Mission Records
location: San Francisco, California, USA
date: 01 September 2001
length: 20 minutes

Every show - what's gonna make it memorable is when you sang along, or that time that you danced, or all the other shit that you did instead of just kinda chilling and just watching the scene. We're all part of this, we're not fucking entertainers. We're all here, together to share this moment, and that's what this is about. Let's fucking go.

UNKNOWN

artist: UNKNOWN
venue: UNKNOWN
location: UNKNOWN
date: UNKNOWN
length: 17 minutes

HERE
A mystery live set from a collection of UK punk tapes. There are breaks in the recording with a few chaps drunkenly taking the piss out of each other and everything else, but the tunes themselves are quality bare bones hook laden UK punk. Seven songs here, with an instrumental jam tacked onto the end that might be from a different band about to start their set (though crowd banter at 2:41 makes the inclusion of that track mandatory). Of course, assistance in identifying either would be appreciated.

UNDER THREAT


artist: UNDER THREAT (??, SP, BRASIL)
venue: ??
location: Cubatão, SP, BRASIL
date: 21 June 1996
length: 40 minutes

Several crushing studio tracks are included after the live set. Hearing this band presented "properly" makes the (admittedly raw) live recording even more powerful...
