totally cool!! thanks Greg!
I always wonder when I look at the crowds in old pics or videos.."where are these people?" haha! well,here is one of them:) welcome!
I am still in LA and still go to gigs (mostly Techno parties/clubs, nowadays) ... 52 years young :biggrin:

Ever since my late teens I have sought out the new and interesting/challenging in music ... Psi Com were definitely new & interesting in 1983/1984! They were loosely aligned with the IPR (Independent Projects Records) axis and I knew many of those people from always going to gigs - Bruce Licher and Ethan Port (Savage Republic), Dino Paredes (Red Temple Spirits), the 2 main guys in Drowning Pool, Abecedarians and so on. In mid 1985 my ex and I moved into a loft east of downtown LA, so we were in a good position to keep tabs on things in the LA scene at the time.

So yeah, I am indeed "one of them" ... I bought "Worktape 1" at one of the Psi Com gigs (at the Anti-Club I think, but I could be wrong) and still own it. I also have the "L.A. Mantra II" tapes as well.

Nice find Mike!!!

I don't recall if I went to that one - probably not because I'd just been to the On Klub show the night before (which as I've said I didn't much like ... ) and also because I didn't care for either the Fiends or the Nip Drivers (strange bill!).

I did go to several of those Sunday afternoon Beyond Baroque events (colloquially dubbed "Beyond BBQ") however such as Savage Republic and Abecedarians later that same month.
