The 8mm master tape underwent major restoration. Over the years some sort of glue film had formed making it snap during every playback attempt. The cartridge was taken apart, the tape carefully unwound manually, cleaned and reassembled. The first 8 minutes of the recording could not be saved though. Hence this presentation starting out with a 1st generation VHS source before switching to the original 8mm master footage.

Words by Mike “Bones” Hammond
My 1st Bad Brains show was in 1981 when they opened for the Clash at Bonds in NYC. They were so intense and the energy in that room was crazy. Those kind of shows and that one especially moved us and many others to start bands. Two years later my 1st Band CIA along with Lost Generation opened for the Bad Brains at POGO’s in our home town of Bridgeport Connecticut. We got to meet them and hang out with them after the show. The next day we all drove together to NYC for one of the Sunday matinee’s.
I went on to see so many other Bad Brains/ Soul Brains shows over the years with other singers and other drummers but nothing was like seeing the 4 original members. Most recent I took my son to CBGBs on 2/24/06 to see them with John Joseph and Mackie although the power and energy was there it was still missing something. I wanted my son to see the Bad Brains the way I saw them the 1st time so when I saw that they were playing this Boat show I had to take him. Well all 4 original members were there but HR just didn’t have the energy anymore and he lost it for some time now. It was still great to see them all together and it was great to see both of those shows with my son. I will still go to see the Bad Brains every chance I get because they are one of the most amazing band ever.

Words by Chris Haskett 
OK, the Bad Brains. Where to even start? Well, to start by stating the obvious, they were one of the greatest bands I’ve ever seen. Anywhere. Any time. They also appeared in the right place and the right time to be a huge catalyst to music. When they got on the scene, they were so good and so consistent and played so hard that all of a sudden about 99% of the stuff your band was doing and 99% of all the records you owned and 100% of everything you thought about music was now utterly dead and irrelevant. It’s easy to be “intense” and no big task (especially if you limit your imaginative scope) but the Bad Brains distilled a brilliant originality, an awesome musical ability and a raw intensity that made everybody’s jaws drop. Where the cheap, cartoonish side of the scene had stupid frat kids with skinny ties were thinking the point was to be demonstrably incapable of playing, the Bad Brains dropped napalm on that concept because they were so damn good. They were one the few bands (ever) that can actually GROOVE at 160 bpm. Everybody else just fudged the tempos and shrugged it off by calling it “thrash”. Nobody could touch them. HR is a unique vocalist and even in the early days the band already had unique tonal palette. Their songs had changes that pulled on you with palpable G-force (think, for example of the transitions into and out of the break in “I”) and were executed with machine precision. One note, from outside a club, and you could tell it was them. To me they were local heroes, even after they moved to New York (which constituted “making it” to my 17 year old mind) and it was always a mixture of jealousy and pride when people, finding I’m from DC, asked if I knew them…

CBGB Nostalgia Vol. 5 | Avail

Posted in Shorts by unartignyc on 2009/08/31

As part our continuing series of shows from CBGB’s we offer you a selection of songs from Avail’s opening set for the Bad Brains on October 09, 2006.  Ever since I discovered them in the early 90s via a Bad Trip 12″ ‘Thank You’ list, this Richmond, VA outfit has held a special place in my heart. Yes, the good old pre-internet, pre-Myspace times, when the discovery of a new kick ass band actually felt like holding a little treasure in my hands. A small feeling of success and victory that got totally lost in an oversaturated  myspace age. Anyway, having discovered Avail the way I did back in the day, it almost gave me the chills listening to Tim Barry on stage at CBGB’s, talking about how Fred from the band Bad Trip always took care of them, going back as far as 1989. Fred not only took care of these Richmond boys when they came to town, he also provided a few thoughts and memories for this edition of Un:art:ig’s run of CBs nostalgia. Enjoy!

[Fred Muench | Bad Trip]
A mutual acquaintance had introduced me to Tim and Joe probably in about 1988 or 1989. When I first heard their demo “reaching out” I thought to myself—these guys definitely have something special and I started following them. That CBs show was pretty funny– they were really excited but Mondays at CBs was audition night and the average age of the people there excluding me, a friend and the band was 50 (and drunk). One thing about them was that they were definitely in good spirits the whole time though. It was when Tim came off the drums and started singing that it all came together. Whoa… they were able to merge emo (real DC emo- not today emo), anthem OI, southern rock and hardcore like nobody was able to do. Their live shows were insane. Among the bands that began in the late 80s, Avail and Snuff are the primary two that still have a regular spot in my rotation. It’s just good and it will stay good.
