Gang War & John Cale – Emerald City 05/06/80

In 1979, Johnny Thunders, legendary Heartbreakers and New York Dolls guitarist, teamed up with Wayne Kramer, also legendary guitarist of Detroit’s seminal MC5, to form Gang War, an alliance that lasted the best part of a year.
On May 6, 1980 Gang War played Emerald City in Cherry Hill NJ with legendary ex Velvet Underground founderJohn Cale. Unfortunately there was only 2 and half songs of John Cale’s set on the tape.

Caterpillar – Demo Tape

Caterpillar was one of my favorite local bands in the 90s – I was hooked after hearing the title track off the Bus 6 7 inch. This is a demo tape without a lot of info on it but I assume it was before that 7inch and the previous one Velvet Ears.
The lineup of the band was:
Bass – Brenda DeFeo
Drums – Jack McInerney
Guitar – Dennis Davis
Guitar, Vocals – Mike Lenert

Mike Lenart also currently plays in Suffacox Mach 2 & was Lettuce Prey

The Deliriants & L.M.N.O.P.- Practice Tapes

The Eddie Beinlich tapes. Eddie thinks the LMNOP (who later became Doctor Bombay) tape is from their first ever practice. The Deliriants practice is one of their early ones probably before they played any shows and even decided on a band name. The Bill + Mark tape is a mystery. Eddie cannot remember why he has it and doesn’t play on it as far as he remembers. It’s on the a-side of the Deliriants practice tape and I think it is really good.

Executive Slacks – Ripley’s Music Hall

When I joined KDU Executive Slacks were the biggest band at the station for over 21 (or at least good fake ID) crowd. I was more in the all ages hardcore show faction so although I liked them I never actually got to see them live.
Their bandcamp page has a good description of the band:
They were one of the most groundbreaking bands to emerge out of Philadelphia in the early ‘80s, laying the sonic foundation for future acts such as Ministry, Skinny Puppy, and Nine Inch Nails. Yet the post-punk, proto-industrial sounds of Albert Ganss, Matt Marello, and John Young never earned the significant recognition it deserved.

I’m not sure what year this video was shot but it is from Ripley’s Music Hall so that narrows it down until early to mid 80’s.

Jean-Paul Sartre Experience – JC Dobbs 7/27/93

The Jean-Paul Sartre Experience, later renamed JPS Experience after a lawsuit by the estate of Jean-Paul Sartre, were part of the 2nd wave of New Zealand’s Flying Nun Records Bands. I first heard them through their song Flex which was on the I’m In Love with These Times compilation and video comp. It was unlike any of the other bands on that and really stood out. They had a wide variety of sounds over their 3 albums and many eps. Most (maybe all?) is collected in I Like Rain: The Story Of The Jean-Paul Sartre Experience
My tape has no information on it but I believe this show was at JC Dobbs – part of the Noisyland tour with The Bats and Straitjacket Fits on July 27, 1993.
