I've been sitting on this one for a while (months) because I've been waiting on members to reveal band info and other stuff....maybe song titles...but the people in this band don't look back too often. They keep moving forward with new ideas and new projects. I respect that. On the flip side of that, I'm sick of waiting and want to get this out to a larger audience because it's a nearly perfect tape by a short lived Bay Area band.
The band started back in 2006 in a practice space at the notorious cross streets of Turk and Taylor in San Francisco. They played afew shows, put out this tape in a very small run and broke up. Supposedly, the band recorded a follow-up tape in Brooklyn that never saw the light of day. Why would a little known SF band record a demo so far away in Brooklyn, you ask? Well, that's just how the Bay Area works sometimes.
Not long after the demise of this band, "bootleg" versions of this tape started showing up at stores in SF and rumor has it that a wild solo-bassman known as Dave Dean was making his own copies of it because he loved the tape so much. Once you listen to it, you may try to resist those same urges. I love all the songs on here, but I'm pretty sure that after you listen to the first song more than once, you are doomed to have it stuck in your head for all eternity because it's so fucking catchy.
Members of LIVID, NASTY INTENTIONS, BRILLIANT COLORS, INDEX, ENDEMICS, THE SLITS, HOMEOWNERS and more.
Sorry to the members of the band for just going ahead with this.
Tape is from Mike Wilson's mysterious brown bag.
