(no idea who recorded this, the tape was an ‘orphan’ on the www without any info so I decided to give this the attention it deserves… The women of ‘Spitboy’ played this gig with ‘Fingerprint’ from France.)
‘Spitboy’ was an all-female political HC band from the San Francisco Bay Area. During their 1993 European tour the people in the band were Adrienne Droogas (vocals; nowadays Mrs Stone), Karin Gembus (guitar), Paula Hibbs-Rines (bass; later replaced by Dominique ‘Nikki’ Davison) and Michelle ‘Todd’ Gonzales (drums). At that time they had a self-titled 7” out on Lawrence Livermore’s Lookout! Recs (’92) and an LP (True Self Revealed) on Kent McClard’s Ebullition recs (’93).
I thought it was super cool that Adrienne sings her part on In Your Face in German, while I sang my part just behind her in English. She had to practice that a bunch!

I have no flyer or anything from this show. But I remember that we had drawn a huge banner (2×4 meter) with the ‘Spitboy’ logo hanging on a wall next to the youthcentre, to promote the concert…
