I & I survived the 80s thanks to the Bad Brains, one eternal member of the Eternal Zer Top Three. The time machine strikes again. The Bad Brains Euro tour of 1989 was a life changing experience for my young self, and to make a long love story short, I may not have the same wife and children today if it wasn't for this ancient heavenly trip to Switzerland. Yes, you can see my reflect on the bad photo of the poster of the Fribourg show, I suppose it fits the purpose. Like for Victims Family, as a tribute to the legend I'm posting everything I have, CDs and LPs. There is too much nostalgia in these vinyls, could not not play them again. Bad Brains, master emperors of hardcore punk, music supremacists, giants of the riff, Black Sabbath of the fast and furious.
HR Tapes 84-86 is a compilation of early recordings of the singer's side project. Stealth is the band of the bass player during one of the numerous Bad Brains breakups. Both albums sound like first class triple zer Bad Brains.
The new album Into The Future is a return to greatness, much better than Build A Nation. Buy this addictive album. Eternal life to the Bad Brains. Bad Brains forever in the whole Universe.

NB about Live at the Marquee LP: when you see this picture for this live bootleg



on other blogs, it is very likely they borrowed the first mp3 rip I made in 2008. I had made the yellow cover for my CDR version (from which these first mp3s originated). The yellow image was made from the back of the LP sleeve, today's black & white pic is the real LP front cover. I had printed this home-made CD sleeve on yellow paper, thus the yellow pic found on various internets. But it is not a physical release you can find (as opposed to the original LP), there is only one such copy and it is on my shelves. The FLAC version posted today is a brand new rip from the LP (not from the CDR) and is of much better quality (better turntable, better processing than in 2008 - and FLAC). Jah.

    2. autant pour moi, le boot lp s’appelle 'rebel in the city'
      http://www.discogs.com/Bad-Brains-Rebel-In-The-City/release/719342
      tu as 2 videos (genre my picture in a movie baby) qui en utilise le son (mais ya pas tout sur les videos), je pense facilement trouvable sur youtube

      sinon ton 'live quickness tour' vhs, elle commence comme ca ta video??? le 1er concert c'est london astoria 1989/09?/29 (j'aurais plutott tendance a penser nov. plutot que septembre) mais il manque les 4 1er titres (que tu peux exactement touver ici http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=743x9PmsQhU).
      les 4 derniers morceaux, par contre ca reste encore une egnime

    3. parlons bien, parlons peu, parlons technique, tu utilises audacity pour faire les decoupes des morceaux?

      Delete
    4. VHS 89: rippée y'a bien 15 ans, je ne sais même plus où elle est, difficile de te répondre. Merci pour le lien youtube, excellent !

      J'utilise Wavelab pour enregistrer et éditer les WAV (nettoyage et découpe). Ensuite Foobar 2000 pour convertir en FLAC. Et finalement un programme Java fait maison pour normaliser la casse des noms de fichiers, ajouter les tags (noms, images, commentaires) et générer le HTML du blog.

    5. je demandais ça car sur le rip du boot lp de 91 il y a des blancs de 0.93s entre chaque piste. il y en avait aussi sur la k7 de COC, ce qui m'avait surpris. J'avais deja eu ce genre de probleme de quelqu'un utilisant audacity, c'est pour cela que je demandais.
      il y en a aussi sur le rip 'quickness tour' mais il sont de .03s et ceux la, on les entends pas, pas comme les autres.

      Delete
    6. Argla, étrange. Comment as-tu mesuré ? Quand je joue le rip dans Foobar 2000, ça passe tout droit.

      Delete
    7. etrange, je conviens!
      j'ai mesuré en sélectionnant le silence avec cool edit lorsque je les ai viré.

      une idée de ce que peut etre le 3eme live sur le 'live dutch tv'??? 1er vpro 'onrust' 89, 2eme daytona FL 87, 3eme ?? (je crois entendre london au debut mais je trouve rien qui pourrait correspondre)

      Delete
    8. Alors j'ai reconverti un FLAC de ce LP en WAV et effectivement, il y a un blanc (de 66 ms dans mon cas) en début de fichier... Je vais devoir étudier cela, sachant que sur d'autre rips, il n'y a pas ce problème.

      Je ne sais pas pour ce 3e live...

      Delete
    9. les 27ms manquantes se trouvent a la fin du morceau.

      Delete
    10. Ah oui. Tjs pas d'idée d'où ça vient, je suis mystifié.

      Delete
    11. peut etre quelqu'un ecoutait du celine dion (ou garou) dans ton environnement proche?? a par cela, je vois vraiment pas (car je ne crois pas la theorie du complot raelien)

      mais bon, du moment que ce n'est pas la norme, tu es pardonné.

  7. - Thanks for another essential post.
    Especially that "Live At The Marquee" with Chuck Mosley was icing the cake... =)

  8. Dude, I have total man love for you right now! What a fucking post! Goddamn I love the Bad Brains! Your vinyl rips are smoking also! Replacing all my BB collection in one stop, how fucking cool is that? I hadnt played a lot of my vinyl in a long time and had forgot how great some of the lesser known records were. The LIVE SST record is really a defining period piece that almost never gets mentioned when talking of BB must haves. Thank You Soooo much,
    Jimi

  9. Wow, I had no idea a first press CD existed with the original mix of Rock for Light! I thought the only available version on CD format was the awful 'Chipmunk Punk' remixed version. Thank you for uploading the original! Now I can actually hear Darryl's solo in Big Takeover.

  10. Anyone have the HR album 'Out of Bounds' released in 2000, but recorded in 1990?
    Never seen it online.
