Wishniaks Live on WKDU 1989

Wishniaks Live on WKDU from sometime in 1989 on Jackie’s show.

It was a very long time ago. It may have been our first performance for radio. I know we were psyched to be there. I remember the headphone mix sounding nothing like us and was a bit thrown by that. We played everything really fast, or sped up during tunes, which was kind of our m.o. Nice to hear what Jim Hostetter was doing on guitar and vocals. We always made such a racket live that I could never really tune in to what he was doing. This set is the band after our first e.p. came out and we were getting songs and our chops together for recording our album in Spring of ‘90. “Left in the Dark” is a cover of the Vertebrats. – except for the Vertebrats cover, all words and music by me, publishing: Bang Quack Music. Hostetter took some lyrical liberties live a la Westerberg. – Andrew Chalfen

Wishniaks were Andrew Chalfen (Trolleyvox, I Think Like Midnight) – Guitar, David Frank – Drums, James B. Moran – Bass & Jim Hostetter – Guitar & Vocals.

Thanks for the tape Jackie & for Andrew for making the files sound better.

Giant Sand – Live Khyber Pass April 6th 1990

Howe Gelb’s Giant Sand is the most resilient and consistently inventive American band of the last two decades–part of the well spring of the Tucson musical dynasty.
Along with Thin White Rope I thought Giant Sand was one of the most under-rated sort of country/indie/psych/whatever bands of the 90;s
(Again I will try to figure out the song titles later but I wanted to get this up)
Thanks for the tape file Don Sheluga

Grisly Fiction – Live on WKDU (May 16, 1989)

Grisly Fiction was formed in the mid 1980’s in Syracuse, NY. The band moved to Philadelphia, PA in 1988 and signed with Brooklyn based label Community 3 Records later that year. Their debut EP “Scrape Face” was released in 1989 and was well received even earning a Futures Pick designation from CMJ.  The band toured the Northeast, Midwest and parts of the South in support of the disc, playing with up and coming bands such as Slint, The Jesus Lizard and Fugazi in the process.

The band released their second Comm 3 album “C’mon Bean Juice” in 1990 and again toured the Northeast and Midwest. After releasing the “Electrolytes”/”Dear Meat” 7″ single in 1991 the band called it quits.

In 2010, on the occasion of a punk rock reunion show in Syracuse, N.Y. over Labor Day weekend, the band reconvened and prepared some new songs for the event. After a rousing return to performing live, additional shows were arranged and in August of 2011 the band recorded their latest CD “My Emotional Geometry Is Like Spider Webs“.

Grisly Fiction for this performance from Jackie’s show on WKDU was Rob Coye (Crankcase, Phantom Pilots) Gtr and Voc, Chuck Hanning (Crankcase) Drums and Voc and Roger Bodine (DTO, Underraga, Suktub, Heroics) on Bass and Voc.  (Sometime after this Jeremy took over for Chuck on drums.)
Thanks for the tape Jackie.

King Face – Live Club Pizazz

King face was a band based out of Washington, DC that started around 1985. They were more straight ahead rock influenced then most of the  DC bands at the  time. It really made them stand out.  The band consisted of Mark Sullivan on vocals, Patrick Bobst on guitar, Andrew Rapoport on bass and Larry Colbert on drums. The band members all had roots in the local hardcore scene. Mark Sullivan had played in a band called The Slinkees in high school. This band featured two members who would go on to start Minor Threat and Dischord Records: Ian MacKaye and Jeff Nelson. This is them live from Club Pizazz which was just off the Bridge & Pratt  el stop (or was it the one before that?)

Mudpie on WKDU

Mudpie on Jackie’s WKDU show from Wednesday August 10, 1988
The members of the band were:
Steven – Guitar, vocals, percussion
Tom – Bass
Bernie – Drums, backing vocals

Mudpie 1987-88 Bio

Steven and Tom (gtr/vocals and bass, both from Lancaster’s The Real Gone & Jack Lord’s Hair) formed Mudpie in Philadelphia in the fall of 1987, recruiting Bernie (drums, backing vocals, ex- Lost Barbeque & More Fiends) at Philadelphia Record Exchange. They rehearsed at Bernie’s West Philly twin near 49th and Springfield, sharing the basement with Trained Attack Dogs and Van Gogh’s Ear.

Mudpie played at local haunts like Bacchanal and Tops in 1988, and recorded two tapes: the best-left-unheard “Mudhenge,” and the “York” EP. Their sound at the time was influenced by contemporary power trios like Volcano Suns, Minutemen/Firehose, Dinosaur, Huskers, Agitpop, etc. The name was inspired by Budgie.

This live WKDU set in August 1988 was the next-to-last performance of this line-up. After that, Steven went on to play drums in Blue for a spell.

Steven and Tom reformed Mud Pie sideways as a very different home-recording outfit from 1989-1992. Tom also formed Rocknoceros in the early 90s. In 2003 Steven and Tom re-formed and continue to the present day as Mud Pie Sun, releasing several tapes and CDs and occasionally playing live.
Thanks for the Tapes Jackie & Diego and Tom for the info & images
