Revelogic is a solo project from Marc Beck (Crankcase, Vick Logic, Ken, Heroics.) The Live from WKDU is from Marina’s show from April 12, 1996.
Then his full cd New Pacific Map which was easily one of my favorite cds from 97. Below that is the 7″ with Marc and Judith Schaechter who also creates amazing stained glass art (and they were in Ken together) – 2 of Marc’s No One Red Cent Cassette tapes – then his My Century cd compilation of other solo works.
Vick Logic Live on Marina’s show on WKDU from December 1994. They were Marc Beck (Crankcase, Revelogic, Ken, etc) on Vocals, Guitar, extras / Jeff Warner (Strapping Field Hands, Crankcase, Amazing Thrill Show) on Bass & Percussion / Mikey Ritz on Guitar. They were on the WKDU’s Scrapple 7″ box set. The first song got cut off and the 2nd starts into the song. There was also an interview with Marina after they played. Enjoy the low-fi songs of yearning .
Epic Soundtracks was the stage name of the British musician Kevin Paul Godfrey Epic and his brother Niki Sudden (Adrian Nicholas Godfrey) were part of the Swell Maps with Epic playing drums and piano, and “Sudden” on guitar and vocals. After the Swell Mpas broke up Epic played drums for Crime & the City Solution and These Immortal Souls. In 1991, he started his own songwriting career as well as a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, he released three solo records. He dies of unknown caused in 6 November 1997. I only recorded 4 songs (I’m not sure why)
Updated info (thanks to Mark) this was from a show May 31st 1995 with Mad Scene and Philly band Kavune opening for him.
Dirt Search Headlight – Live Khyber Pass, Philadelphia 1995
Dirt Search Headlight were former members of Red Herring and Carnival of Shame. They played around Philly for a couple of years, recorded some demos but never released anything. Unfortunately I don’t have the whole show tape it was lost it except for this one song.
Cop Shoot Cop from the Khyber in Philadelphia. The tape did not have a date on it but I’m guessing it was 90 or 91. Their initial line-up included Tod A. (vocals and high-end bass), James Coleman (sampler), Natz (low-end bass, occasional vocals), David Ouimet (sampler) and Phil Puleo (metal, drums). I saw them at least 2 or 3 times in Philly and they always but on a good show. Their early stuff was heavy industrial with heavy Bass, drums, metal and sampling. Later they started to remind my of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds while still keeping their own sound. If you want to check out the early stuff go to Psychotic Leisure Music. Currently Todd A has a new band Firewater which has more international and eastern influences and is one of the funnest bands to see currently out there. Check out Cop Shoot Cop web site
Nirvana from JC Dobbs the last tour before they became big rock stars. Their third time at Dobbs from October 1st 1991 with the Melvins. I wish I had taped the Melvins but I unfortunately didn’t. It was a little weird to me that Nirvana became the big band at the time I was way more into Mudhoney and thought they would be huge. Shows what I know. But one of the things I respected Nirvana allot was paying homage to the bands that influenced them. Having Pat Smear join as a 2nd guitar player and wearing a Daniel Johnston shirt on mTV are just a few examples. At this show they did a good mix of Nevermind, Bleach and other stuff. According to a site dedicated to Nirvana shows it was reported Kurt was feeling well so that may be why they didn’t do an encore.
Firehose from Revival in 87 – a bunch of songs from their first two albums, one minutemen cover and a BOC cover. I along with two other KDU dj’s had set up an interview with Mike Watt through SST. So of course when we got there he had no idea we were coming. So we waited out in the cold and got a six pack. Evidently we got in and did the interview and Mike Watt was really easy to talk to and was a much better interviewee then we were interviewers. But the plus side of doing an interview was we were already in Revival and didn’t have to worry about getting carded by the bouncers. I missed most of Trained Attack Dogs but I got to see Slovenly. I really liked Slovenly – they seemed to fall into the you either love them or hate them bands (I have some of their set on tape I’ll put up later.) Firehose came on and were great – ok they weren’t the Minutemen and at the time it was hard to not compare the two. But now with time Firehose had some great songs and Mike Watt and George Hurley are so together and tight it was amazing. Check out Mike Watt’s Hoot Page
