The Monday Set: The Fishcats (Pre-HNIA) – Boneless Macaroni Demo


The Fishcats
Boneless Macaroni Demo

This was on Side 2 of a cassette that I had which had the His Name Is Alive “Riotousness & Postrophe” Demo. The HNIA “Early Music Vol 1.” which included that demo is from 1985-1989, so this must be Warren Defever pre-1985. I have absolutely no idea on the track listing.

Setlist:
1-11. Unknown

The Monday Set: ESP-Beetles – With The


ESP-Beetles
With The (Cassette)
1994

I picked this cassette up at a His Name Is Alive show in Minneapolis. This was released on Time Stereo in 1994 and is a collection of tape loops brought to you by Warren Defever and friends. I have no idea if those are the correct song breaks, but it’s what sounded “logical” to me.

Setlist:
1. Last Song
2. No Songs (Pt. 1)
3. No Songs (Pt. 2)
4. Quiet
5. Jason Tape (Pt. 1)
6. Jason Tape (Pt. 2)
7. Kill Me
8. Hurry Up
9. Right Now
10. Try To Contact Sun Ra (Pt. 1)
11. Try To Contact Sun Ra (Pt. 2)
12. Try To Contact Sun Ra (Pt. 3)

His Name Is Alive – How Ghosts Affect Relationships (Live Video)

His Name Is Alive – How Ghosts Affect Relationships
Aarons Records
Los Angeles, CA
Fall 1994

I was just looking at a few His Name Is Alive cassettes thinking I need to get around to transferring them and posting a couple of tracks, then along came this video which I got in the mail a couple of days ago. It’s a great in-store recording of HNIA while they were on tour promoting the How Ghosts Affect Relationships record which had just come out.

His Name Is Alive – Bad Luck Girl / Country Girl (Live)

Thanks to the HNIA fans who told me the name of this song. I’ve never been a big HNIA fan, but I had always heard they were great live. This show was in a small sit-down theater in Minneapolis and it was crazy. I remember HNIA had this huge cardboard whale that they were trying to navigate through the tiny isles and kept on knocking people over. All the songs they played were awesome and I left there mesmerized. I’ve seen them a couple of times since then but it has been no comparison to this show.
