A smokin’ set of a tape that has seen some circulation, but never from this low of a gen, as far as I know. The date here is indeed correct (yay!)…no revamps of info should be needed, as a poster of the show is included in torrent to prove it!...

The Corvallis show, originally thought to be part of this stint, actually turns out to be from 1982…still need to do some digging on that date, as it appears to have eluded even the most ardent DK fans…

anywho, try this one on fer size, but please!…

I was lucky enough to develop a pretty solid virtual friendship with Chris Metzler, and seemingly was able to succeed where many others have not: getting him to open up his vast collection of recorded material to digitally transfer. The many requests he received over the years were impossible to fulfill, and he honestly felt badly about ‘hoarding’, but there was little way to oblige all of them over the decades of taping, trading, and collecting

Perhaps Chris saw in me the chance to get his tapes transferred for himself, and also out to the many folks who had requested them since his last trading days many moons ago...

What we have in Chris’ collection is a brilliant snapshot of the Portland \ Eugene \ Corvallis, Oregon scene in the early to mid-1980’s. Then, after a prolific spell taping his favorite bands in and around Portland, Chris scored a job working for Touch’n’Go sister label Blast First Records out of the UK. He became label support for Band of Susans, and worked closely with many of the stalwarts during the heyday of Touch’n’Go.

Chris has also worked closely with many other bands, in various capacities; including Wire and Nick Cave (at Mute Records); the Buzzcocks, after their reformation in 1989; as well as many, many others…far too many to mention. This series does not even begin to scratch the surface of his collection; much of which is privately recorded and cannot be released to the public without the bands’ permissions. Still, what has been offered up is a pretty amazing collection of recordings, nonetheless, and certainly will bring to light a wealth of new material as well as many upgrades which have remained elusive for far too long.

Allow me to give a big thanks to Chris for his trust in me, and for opening up his vaults to we fans!
