1,000 AD – Annodomini CS

1,000 AD – Annodomini CS (2001, self-released):  It’s been a really busy week or two, but I wanted to get this jammer up here real quick.  The Chicago ease into Fall has begun, which means it got cold over the span … Continue reading

Sex – Tape CS

Sex – Tape CS (self-released, 2012):  This one was in the “to rip” stack, but has been bumped to the top of the queue at the request of PYGMY DEATH’s very own RALPH RIVERA.  I’m unsure whether to be grateful … Continue reading

Zap – Demo Version 0.69 CS

Zap – Demo Version 0.69 CS (self-released, 2014):  Sorry for the lengthy silence.  I went to Japan, then got back, then got really busy with work and this stuff sort of got pushed aside.  Unfortunate, sure, but everyone’s got priorities … Continue reading

Xillian – No Way CS

Xillian – No Way CS (self-released, 1990): This is pure, unadulterated, ripping thrash metal from Chicago.  I’ve never heard this band’s name and can’t find anything about them on the Internet, but Scott Harmless somehow magically produced this unsung slam-inducer from … Continue reading

Digger – Demo CS (self-released):  I never really got into DIGGER growing up.  They were just a band that I’d hear a song or two by here or there on comps and stuff and I dug it, but I never … Continue reading

From Ashes Rise – Demo CS

From Ashes Rise – Demo CS (self-released, 1997):  FROM ASHES RISE is one of the earlier crusty/metallic hardcore bands I heard after getting into stuff like TRAGEDY.  The tight, d-beat influenced bulldozing hardcore their known for apparently took a little … Continue reading

V. Reverse – Demo CS

V. Reverse – Demo CS (self-released, 1995):  I really like V. REVERSE.  Their 10″ is one of my favorite records from this time period in Chicago.  They’re a band that has always seemed to defy any kind of easy categorization … Continue reading

My Foolish Halo – Demo CS

My Foolish Halo – Demo CS (1993?, self-released):  90’s punk is weird.  There are certain things that, to me, will always be a part of punk to varying degrees – an amateurishness in musical ability, an urgency, a palpable compulsion … Continue reading

John Brown Battery – Demo Tape

John Brown Battery – Demo Tape (1999):  This is a submission from the comments section on a past post about the incredible JOHN BROWN BATTERY, but since the link expired I thought I’d re-upload it. This demo tape is seriously … Continue reading

Scabs – Demo CS

Scabs – Demo CS (self-released, 2011):  SCABS were one of my favorite bands in an outpouring of a LOT of very good Northwest Indiana bands from this time period.  Unsurprisingly, this band features members of many of those other groups … Continue reading
