Ear Spray Live at Second Act SF up at Archive.org!

 

https://archive.org/details/03-live-at-second-act

More weirdness from Ear Spray, recorded live to iPhone on Haight Street in San Francisco. The guy who booked Second Act Noise shows, was very cool, friendly, and freaky in the best possible ways. Last time I saw him was in early March 2020, at a warehouse show in Oakland. We talked about Pere Ubu and vinyl hoarding tendencies.

Recorded on a cold, quiet evening in Oakland CA. We played for quite some time that evening, I might upload more of it at some point in the future.

The Northgate Quartet live in Oakland audio up at Archive.org

 

https://archive.org/details/4-16-14

The group on this recording was put together by woodwinds player/poet/visual artist Jim Ryan. Jim's idea was that a group with himself and probably me would form a core unit which would play at elder residential facilities. Our one time doing so happened at one such place on 24th and MLK in Oakland. I wish I could remember the names of the pianist and conga player, but that information is completely lost to me. This is the closest I ever came to playing some kind of Jazz in public. Who knows if that's good or bad I guess.

New Ovipositor live show up at Archive.org!

 

 https://archive.org/details/10-red-crust

Ovipositor, 10/23/2004. An optimistic time for me, as the band sounded and felt good, about one year into our seven year run. Friends of the late Jason Batzer can hear him talk at the beginning of the set before the music starts. The Stork Club was as dingy as the above photo makes it look.

New Crow Crash Radio live show up at Archive.org!

 

https://archive.org/details/crow-crash-radio-live-in-fairfax-11-3-13

Crow Crash Radio always had a kind of naive quality to its sound I think. Primitive guitar playing with theremin drone on top of that, guided by my quirky drumming....yeah, naive and probably un-relatable to many who heard us as we stealthily played around the SF Bay Area for a number of years. We always had fun I think, though, and I truly love Andrew and Brian, they're sweet dudes. Anyway, since the above photo was taken, I've shed about 80 lbs, so I don't really look quite like that guy anymore.

Ovipositor live at Li Po Lounge San Francisco up at Archive.org

 

https://archive.org/details/ovipositor-041010-full-set

San Francisco's late 2000's DIY zone for dudes of a certain stripe. I guess that I was one of those dudes. The penultimate Ovipositor show, in a sweaty cellar smack dab in the middle 'o Chinatown. Once an architect told me that most of those buildings "aren't even up to code". Yeah, neither was I.

Heavily electronic and Electro-Acoustic on this set played in a great little record store near Lake Merritt, Oakland. Hope it's still there!
