Thanks again to Pete at Drugmusic.com. for the beta tapes and Dave thanks for filling in the song titles
The Dicks from the Elk’s Center in Atlantic City. I don’t have a flyer for this one but I’m assuming it was the same summer as the other ones I posted so 1985. The Dicks and the Big Boys were my favorite of the Austin bands of the early 80’s. I never got to see either of them live but did see a lot of later bands (Sister Double Happiness, Bad Mutha Goose, Monkeywrench, Swine King, Scratch Acid) by members of both. They did a good mix of songs from all their releases in this set. Both sides of the Peace/War 7″ and both albums Kill From the Heart and These People. It looks like the only Dicks music available is the Alternative Tentacles comp 1980-86 It has songs from all their releases but I have no idea why they just didn’t put everything on the cd.
Thanks again to Pete at Sounds of Tomorrow. for the beta tapes
Die Kreuzen from the Elk’s Lodge in Atlantic City. Starts off with their cover of the Halloween movie theme. Then they played a mix of short fast stuff from their first self titled LP and a bunch of longer songs from my favorite Die Kreuzen album October File.
I remember seeing them at the Kennel Club around this time but it might have been 1986. Earlier I posted the audio from a much later Die Kreuzen show from the Khyber.
For all things Die Kreuzen go to: Counting Cracks
Dead Milkmen Live from the Elk’s Lodge in Atlantic City. I don’t have much info on this show but I’m assuming it was in the summer of 1985. Lots of songs from their first album Big Lizard in My Backyard plus a few from Eat Your Paisley . Around 1/3 into the video they do their big early hit Bitchin’ Camaro with what looks like most of the audience up on stage. The Dead Milkmen have reformed and have a new album out go to The Dead Milkmen Facebook Page to check it out.
Thanks again to Pete at Sounds of Tomorrow for the beta tapes
Articles of Faith Live video from the Elk’s Lodge in Atlantic City on July 26, 1985. They headlined the show with Die Kreuzen and Electric Love Muffin opening. Wide range of songs from Up Against the Wall from the Peace Comp through Give Thanks and In This Life. I would guess this is probably there last tour since they broke up in 85. Articles of Faith are one of my favorite Chicago bands. Musically they had a unique sound and the lyrics were always great both the political stuff and they more personal In This Life lyrics. Hard to say because In This Life didn’t actually get released until 86 (two years after it was recorded) but I bet that album was a big influence on DC Revolution Summer bands like Rites Of Spring & Grey Matter. They recently got back together for a show at the Riot festival in Chicago. There is some video of the reunion on Youtube or on the I have A Brain in My Ass Blog. They also released a 7″ of new songs called New Normal Catastrophe which you can get here Plus Alternative Tentacles put out 2 collection cd’s which pretty much includes everything they recorded. There page on the Alternative Tentacles site is here (then select AOF from the dropdown) Below the videos are audio files taken from the video.
Thanks again to Pete at Sounds of Tomorrow for the beta tapes and Crunch Productions for the amazing shows.
Video from an Electric Love Muffin show at the Elk’s Lodge in Atlantic City. The show was on July 26, 1985 and they were opening for Die Kreuzen and Articles of Faith. I was never at any of the Atlantic City shows but from what I’ve heard (and now watched) it looked like a good venue. Lenny and Crunch Productions always put on good shows. This video is from a bunch of videos I borrowed and converted from Betamax tapes from Pete at Sounds of Tomorrow So keep in mind this video was captured from a 25 year old Beta tape. I’m not sure if it the tape or the camera at the time put Rich gets kind of washed out when he is in the spotlight. Hopefully I got the song titles right besides their normal cover of Norwegian Wood – during a string break on Butch’s guitar they do Bad Moon Rising and the Who’s I don’t Mind. I’m not sure what the last song is it sounds familiar but I can’t figure it out. Also, here is an old zine article about touring with the Muffin from Free TNT zine
