Dave Destruction VHS-C Master Tapes

August 2021.

Dave Wilson aka Dave Destruction was a prolific collector, trader and filmer in Melbourne from the late 80s and into the 2000s.

His collection was extensive - thousands of VHS tapes from decades of trading with others across the globe.

He passed away in late 2020, and with the help of Jason PC, Mike FB and Gasher Whale, I am working through his vast collection to get it digitised, and make sure his lifetime of archiving can be preserved.

These VHS-C master tapes span 1993-1995, and are numbered starting with 1. Dave filmed shows earlier than this, so I suspect those were dubbed to VHS and the master tapes re-used. These are 1 through 16, but a few are missing. At this stage I'm unsure if they are around, or if there are more than 16.

11 VHS-C tapes.
18 individual sets, plus 1 interview.
11.5 hours of documented live music.
315 GB of video files.

Hit me up if you've got tapes (MiniDV, VHS, or otherwise) that need transferring!!
