Kevorkian Death Cycle Live Circa 1996/1997

I don’t remember where this was or which year it was for sure. I believe it is 1996-10-17 in SLC, Utah but it could be in the high desert of California and it could be 1997. Someone remembers, I don’t. The video is too dark to really see much and it was not recorded by me. The VHS was given to me at one time to duplicate over some fears that the original would not survive; which I don’t think it did. This was recorded by a member of Cannibal Buffet or a friend of the band.

From my notes on the YouTube upload:

(still poor audio, this will be a theme guys)

I may have the date wrong here (I mean, it is incredibly likely here), but I know it was the winter of 1997/1998. I wouldn’t have been old enough to drink yet.

This would be the first time I heard the song ‘Static’ and I remember really liking it. I have since overplayed it. Still a fan.

I talked with Ryan and Roger a short bit but had an extended conversation wit Siebold from Hate Dept. during sound check. I don’t remember much about the conversations except he had sort of rolled into a mini-lecture on what to not eat and some of the fucked up food industries. This is only significant because it was the same lecture I’d overhear him giving a female friend of mine at another show in another state the following year.

There is a point where the power shuts off and then comes back on. This is due to a really poorly placed record button on the Hitachi 8mm camcorder I was using. This will repeat itself at other shows I’m sure.

Kevorkian Death Cycle Live in SL,UT 1998-11-08

I created a Lousy Sauce YouTube channel specifically for a few of these videos. Maybe we’ll add more going forward.

From my notes on the YouTube upload:

This was recorded with permission. At this show Metropolis (Brian??) gave the approval as well. I was going to send them a copy and then I didn’t for some reason. I was always in trouble for something back then, who knows? As I recall this was the first and last time I recorded a show at Area 51. Special thanks to the club, label, and the band for saying yes. Even though the end result is barely worth watching.

Video camera was a few years old at the time, keep in mind circa 1995-96 home cameras in the mid-range were just getting color view-finders, even then they weren’t great. Considering how much of a poorfag I was back then, I’m thankful I had a camcorder at all. The 8mm tapes haven’t survived well, and the audio is the most obvious area for this. Unfortunately these were transferred to VHS in 2004 and a few years later to the computer. I believe the original tapes are long gone.

This show would have been the opening act forĀ Front Line Assembly; a backdrop for FLA can be seen in this video.

Ryan at Area 51 1998-10-27

Prior to this show I’d seen them at Area 51, and would again the following year. I have a few photos from each show but can’t be bothered to search for them all now. The official website would wind up being lost and held by a cybersquatter and so I setup (which itself has transferred cybersquatter’s hands a few times. It was a bad time to do so as it would be a long long time before KDC would release new material. The WayBackMachine didn’t save images so you can’t see anything from the site.
