Sound recordings from the local music scene of the 1980's

All the recordings were made with the bands knowledge using a casette recorder fed from either two stereo cross mics or two mics mixed with a direct out from the desk. Later recodings I used a 4track MT4 deck which allowed a later mix-down between direct out and mics.

The PA was usually Geoff's ADD hire but more often than not for a while me using the Inline PA - 2.5 KW of shared PA. I usually had some involvement in the organising of these events as well.
