For Scenic or pre-Africa Corps/SR performances...
I am greatly indebted to Mark Buckwalter for providing me the material for which to compile this listing, Bruce Licher for providing amendations and additional listings, and the current members of Savage Republic for their support and continued artistry.
1981-early Parking Structures - UCLAAccording to Bruce Licher, "The first recordings we made were of our first rehearsal in the tunnels at UCLA, in early 1981. One track from that tape ("The Happy Mrch #2") made it onto the "Independent Projects, Vol. 1 & 2" double 10" release from 1989. It also includes several jams that turned into "When All Else Fails..." and "Attempted Coup: Madagascar."
1981-05-31 The Brave Dog - Los Angeles (First public performance, w/ [[Bridge]]'s final performance)Flesh That Walks Ivory Coast Kill The Fascists Exodus Mobilization Tragic Figure 'JD Rey statement' Bruce: "It was originally scheduled to be at a small art gallery called The Los Angeles Museum of Art, where several pre-SR groups I was involved with had performed, but we had to change the venue 2 days before the show. I ended up renting the Brave Dog space for $100 from Jack Marquette, and after seeing us play he offered us additional shows later in the year. I have a reel-to-reel recording of the gig, and one of these days I'll transfer it to digital and send you the song list. The other group on the bill that night was [[Bridge]], and it was the final performance of that group, which featured Mark Erskine, me, Dan Voznick (Chez Voz from Afterimage) and Michael Gross." (from 'Procession' mailing list) Bruce: "We rented [The Brave Dog] out for the Sunday night and managed to get 40 or so people to show up, even wih the last minute venue change, and had a great show. We even made $5 after all expenses were paid. We showed my films Copyright 1980 and "Bridge" in between sets, and as I was playing in both bands, I did he Africa Corps set with a seven-day growth of beard, then shaved on stage before the "Bridge" performance. What art students will do for attention... Changed my shirt, too." (from 'Independent Projects' booklet)
1981-08 San DiegoBruce: "The booklet from the "IP" double 10" box set also mentions a show in August 1981 in San Diego without Jeff Long (I don't remember specifics, but I think we tried doing it as a 3-piece, not too successfully)."
1981-10-17 Madison Square Garden - Phoenix, AZ (w/ 100 Flowers and Meat Puppets)Exodus So It Is Written Machinery Mobilization Ivory Coast Kill The Fascists When All Else Fails Attempted Coup: Madagascar The surviving recording has extreme distortion on the last two tracks, which are also cut. Several tracks appear on the "Independent Projects, Vol. 1 & 2" double 10" release from 1989 and on the 'Recordings From Live Performance 1981-83' IP038 CD... Bruce: "Also the Madison Square Garden gig in Phoenix of October 1981 was also without Jeff Long, but this time we had Kendra Smith on loan from Dream Syndicate, playing bass & percussion. The other bands on the bill were 100 Flowers (though they may have still been The Urinals then) and The Meat Puppets headlined." (from 'Procession' mailing list)
1981-09-05 The Brave Dog - Los Angeles, CA (w/ Aphotic Culture)Bruce: "The Brave Dog became the place where Africa Corps was always appreciated, and we played there often throughout 1981. Aphotic Culture, who sounded like a cross between Velvet Underground, Psychedelic Furs, and Siouxsie & The Banshees, was another one of those bands who did some pretty interesting music but never had the chance to record anything before the ultimate split." (from 'Independent Projects' booklet)
1981-11-12 Cathay De Grande - Hollywood, CA (w/ Afterimage and M. Elan)Bruce: "The Cathay de Grande was a dark hole underneath a Chinese restaurant in Hollywood which eventually became the only place in Hollywood hat would book hardcore punk shows. This was our only gig here and we go added to the opening slot by our friends in Aferimage. By this time we were starting to get flak for our name (supposed Nazi connotations) wo we started playing around with he words. This was the only show we billed outselves as AFRICA CORP., rather tongue-in-cheekedly." (from 'Independent Projects' booklet)
1981-11-21 The Brave Dog - Los Angeles (w/ Kommunity FK)Bruce: "I didn't like the idea of regular-size 8-1/2 x 11 flyers like everyone else gave out. Not only did people seem to enjoy being handed a small, oddly-sized flyer, but you could get 3 or 4 times as many for the same cost. Besides, people would seem to keep them more often than not, perhaps for the novelty, or because they would fit into their pockets easier. We were actually starting to get a bit more coherent as a band by this time, and were debuting newer songs, such as Next To Nothing and Flesh That Walks." (from 'Independent Projects' booklet)
1981-12-30 Whisky A Go-Go - Hollywood, CA (w/ Middle Class, Outer Circle, and Afterimage)Assembly Attempted Coup: Madagascar Exodus Machinery Mobilization Ivory Coast Bruce: "Bottom of the bill with Middle Class headlining. Excitement was ours when we got our first Whisky show, along with plenty of nervousness by the time we hit the stage. The Whisky was the best club in town as far as I was concerned, by the time we had formed Africa Corps i was hard to get a show there unless you were fairly pretty well known or were fortunate enough to get added to the bottom of a bill such as this. We were pretty raw, but different than the rest, and while the waitresses thought we stunk the audience liked us enough, and Jeff had a few of his pals from Wasted Youth there to yelp and whistle encouragement. We opened with a new song called Assembly, which was not quite worked out yet and was embarrassing enough that night for us to shelve it for about two years. Biggest crowd we'd played to so far, and it was quite an exciting night." (from 'Independent Projects' booklet) Two tracks appear on the "Independent Projects, Vol. 1 & 2" double 10" release from 1989 and on the 'Recordings From Live Performance 1981-83' IP038 CD... Setlist order of above tracks not 100% confirmed.
1982-01-14 The O.N. Klub - Silverlake, CA (w/ Rik L. Rik and Fahrenheit)Bruce: "We got a couple of dates at the O.N. Klub, a dingy place in the Silverlake district of LA which was known as he Mod/Ska Dancing club for a period of time when that was he new thing. By the time we played here, the club was in decline and the first of the two shows was a complete disaster. First, the headliner cancelled, then Mark (our drummer) forgot to show up, then Phil and Jeff got drunk out of their minds. About 20 minutes into a drummerless set Jeff decided he'd had enough and departed from the stage. I half-heartedly improvised for another few minutes before leaving Phil to drunkenly warble Beatles songs solo to end the set shortly thereafter. Definitely an experience." (from 'Independent Projects' booklet)
1982-02-03 The O.N. Klub - Silverlake, CA (w/ 100 Flowers and Neef)
1982-early Los AngelesGood quality audience recording featuring thirty minutes of performance. No further details yet.
1982-05-31 Al's Bar - Los Angeles, CAIvory Coast (breakdown) Procession There's some confusion over the dating, as this date is also given for Africa Corps' last performance at The Brave Dog. However, it's likely not to be the case, as the club had been shut down in November 1981 and only reopened briefly during early 1982. It's likely a mixed up with the first public performance of Africa Corps. Several track appears on the "Independent Projects, Vol. 1 & 2" double 10" release from 1989 and on the 'Recordings From Live Performance 1981-83' IP038 CD...

1982-11-05 The Galleria - San Francisco, CA (w/54-40, supporting Public Image Ltd.)A review of this gig on Fodderstompf (PiL site). Bruce: "This was our biggest break as a young band -- getting to open for Public Image, not only in San Francisco, but also for 3000 people in LA the following day. Due to the interest from Tragic Figures, there were a lot of people who wanted to see us and this was our San Francisco debut. As is the case when you're opening for a big headliner though, there's always a large part of the audience that wants nothing more than for ou to get the hell off the stage. I'd say that half the audience liked us, though, and the rest either yelled at us or pelted us with tiny light bulbs from the balconies above the stage By this time we were a five piece, experimenting with some things that didn't always work and it didn't reall help to not get a soundcheck. The recording I have of this show is pretty hard to listen to, but we did get to meet the guys from 54-40, who drove down from Vancouover just for the show. They later helped us set up some dates in the Northwest in early 1983, which was our first, rather ill-fated tour." (from 'Procession' mailing list)

'Was it well received?' muses Licher. 'By the audience, yes. After going on at 2 AM, being told we could only play an hour-long set, we got 3 encores, which was apparently unheard of. The club owner kept asking Steve when we were going to stop, so that he could get back to having his dance floor free. The crowd was yelling for more and he wanted to bring the curtain down on the stage. Crazy night.'"

Incidentally, this was a rather important gig for Shiva Burlesque because it was (according to my journal, anyway) the first time Bruce and Phil D saw us perform live, and that relationship eventually lead to the Nate Starkman release of the first Shiva Burlesque album in the summer of that same year, as well as the Pyramid Club gig in New York on July 19th, '88, which BTW was part of the New Music Seminar, the proto indy-rock-fest."

The Hollywood scumbags at the Echo tried to deny us a board recording, but we got away with it anyway. Of course you should hear how amazing the audio is before YouTube got their hands on it and converted it to mono and whatever crappy compression they put it through!!! Gig poster

We are happy to announce our first show in the city of Pomona since our '88 show with Fugazi. We will be playing a free show on Tuesday, September 9th at the Alibi East. It is 21 and over only, but it is free. It should be a nice mix with something from every album in a really fun, relaxed environment.

2008-11-16 'Part Time Punks' Festival - The Echo - Los Angeles, CA (w/ ACR, Pylon, The Urinals, and others...)Andelusia Swordfighter Mobilization Siege Siam Tabula Rasa 1938 Hanging Garden [The Cure] From this compiler, who attended the show: The redoutable Savage Republic, who by their own admission rarely play in the States, put in an appearance at the Part Time Punks Festival. Their set was in the upstairs Echo, as Pylon were occupying the downstairs Echoplex. The group aired a new song, called 'Swordfighter' (reminds me of Anemome), as well as a newly recorded cover of the Cure's 'The Hanging Garden' (quite good) cover for a French-based label. Thom had Greg, as the only member of the band who voted for McCain(!) introduce 1938, and at another point kissed his drummer, as he had forgotten to do so at the start of the set. They availed themselves well, especially having to perform after Daytime Television, a group of school-age kids playing some of the genre staples, which went down with the crowd a storm. 'Procession' was in the setlist, but they ran out of time, it seems. Playing at the same time as Savage Republic was Pylon, playing one of their last shows, as guitarist Randy Bewley sadly passed away on February 25th, 2009.
