The Mermen
Rock and Pop

On 4/5/96, Tony Brooke recorded The Mermen and Her Majesty The Baby at Transmission Theater in San Francisco for Industrial Management.

In that era, the Transmission Theater (now closed) was an L-shaped venue surrounding the Paradise, which was on the corner of 11th and Folsom. The 11th Street side of the Transmission was the public side of the venue, while the Folsom Street side was the backstage area.

The Folsom Street side was still equipped with a large garage door from its earlier incarnation as an auto transmission shop. So Silent Way pulled a van loaded with recording equipment inside and parked just behind the stage to record the show.
