1985.XX.XX Bell Ranch, Apple Valley, CA Illuminotic/Scrunge

Post by Mike » Sun Apr 15, 2012 9:30 am

I've been lucky enough to get in contact with Jula Bell whose parent's home this show took place.
Previously it was thought that this was the last show for Psi-Com but Jula has told me that it was in fact Illuminotic that played this party.

In addition Jula passed along the names of several other bands that played at this party.

Here's what Jula had to say:
Jula Bell wrote:Hi Mike- the barn party was in July or August of 1985, I think. I will try and dig up the flyer and see. I can tell you some of the lineup if you like: Psi Com goes Illuminotic, Celebrity Skin, The Angry Samoans, NIp Drivers, Cactus Dick, Thelonius Monster and Red Hot Chili Pepper's jam, and Razebrae to name a few. It may take awhile to find the flyer--but there is some info in the meantime.
I've been keeping this quiet while waiting for Jula to locate her flyer but some time has passed and she's not found it yet. My fingers are crossed she'll be able to find it.

I haven't updated either of the two show pages yet but they'll need some tweaking.

I updated both of these show's tour dates pages.
If you see anything wrong with either listing please let us know.

Show Information:

This performance was most likely the first time Perry and Eric played together publicly. The show was a barn painting party at the ranch owned by the parents of jula Bell and took place in either July or August of 1985. According to Jula Bell "Psi Com goes Illuminotic" at this show and in addition to them the following bands also played.

Scrunge, Celebrity Skin, The Angry Samoans, NIp Drivers, Cactus Dick, Thelonius Monster, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Razebrae

In addition to playing in Illuminotic at this show Eric Avery also played bass in his band Scrunge, which is especially notable because Eric playing with Perry led to him being kicked out of Scrunge.
