Lately, I've been a little hesitant to post due to being so behind on checking out other sharing blogs and keeping track of what has already been covered. Here is a cassette from my archives I'm pretty confident nobody has posted. It is taken from the 1991 Zoviet France US tour. This was the June 2nd show in Chula Vista, California - located south of San Diego, near the Mexican border.
The performance took place at a Masonic Lodge in Chula Vista. It was truly an odd locale, but it turned out to be a great show.
The quality of the recording isn't the greatest, but one would never guess it was recorded on a portable cassette recorder with either a cheap or built-in mic. I brought the recorder to interview the group for a fanzine I contributed to at the time, Technology Works. Recording the concert was an afterthought considering the equipment I was using. I brought extra blank tape in case of an emergency and figured I might as well record as much of the multiple sets with the extra space.
I still remember, during the interview, they were hand decorating the first edition of their Vienna 1990 CDs.
There was a modern/interpretive dancer who performed during their set. I remember years ago seeing on-line pictures of her from other shows on that tour, but a quick GIS didn't produce any.
Also on the bill were ADRV (a trimmed down Crash Worship) and Randy Greif. I plan to post what I recorded from those sets in the next few days. If I can dig up a copy of the zine/interview, I will scan and post that as well...
There are about 80 minutes in total that I was able to record (pt.1 is 51 min, and pt.2 is 29 min). I do not recall how long the actual performance lasted. I think it is a great document of their style at the time, and hope you will appreciate it as well. If anyone reading this is not familiar with their output, but enjoys this post, I strongly urge tracking down their mid/late-80's to early 90's releases for starters, although there is probably very little of their music that I dislike.
