This is another poster Chris and I discovered when we were cleaning out the old practice space. I don’t recall much about this night. I do remember that shortly before this show Tullycraft recorded a cover of the Jonathan Richman song “They’re Not Trying on the Dance Floor” at a small studio in Seattle. It was a last minute idea, and we tracked the song live in a single take. This show at the Rendezvous was the only time we ever performed that song in public. I don’t think it went over very well, maybe it was too slow for a Saturday night crowd? I’m not sure why we never attempted to play it again. I guess it just fell through the cracks. Anyway, the Tullycraft recording of “They’re Not Trying on the Dance Floor” eventually appeared on the Friendly Society compilation in 1998 – which ended up being the last record released by Harriet Records. One thing I do remember about this show is that Incredible Force of Junior was much better than the other three bands on the bill. They ruled the night!

Here is the song “Kid Champion” by Incredible Force of Junior



… and if you’re curious, here is the Tullycraft version of “They’re Not Trying on the Dance Floor.” (This song also appeared on The Singles – a b-sides, rarities and early singles compilation released on Darla Records in 1999.)
