Teenage Warning- 4 Track Rehearsal March 1983 Christ on Parade Attitude Adjustment Hardcore

This one is somewhat of a mystery. It was on the end of Wayne’s master recordings of New Method 8/2/86. He is not sure where it came from, but he offers this context:
“I can’t even remember what that was from. Chris Dodge and myself used to go to the Maximum RocknRoll house all the time. Tim had numerous tapes lining the top of his record shelves. Once or twice we brought our tape decks and spent all day recording our favorites from Tim’s collection. I think I even ran out of room and started adding stuff to pre existing tapes that had room at the end.”

Since this was at the end of a master tape and it hastily cuts in, I am running with it. This is likely to be from Tim’s MRR archive.

Teenage warning were Barrie Evans and Todd Kramer (later to be in Christ on Parade amongst others), Kevin Reed (later Attitude Adjustment), and Jim Lyon.

More context from Barrie Evans: “This was recorded on a 4 track in Todd’s mom’s dining room which we used to practice in. I gave this tape to Tim Yohannan and he played ” My Life ” on MRR. Eric asked me what Song 1) was and song 9) Song 1 is Depression and since we played War twice, 9 is either “Skate” or “My Life”. We passed this tape around to friends and clubs. Wes Robinson being the one who really liked it and had us play a million times. This recording was in March of ’83. Barrie – Jim – Kevin – Todd. The original line up.”

Dead Pledge- Placer High School, Auburn Ca. 1983

Since I am awaiting yet another video to finish processing to 4k, here is an amazing early document from the sac punk scene. In fact, is this the earliest video document from a Sacramento area punk band, I think. The youtube post says “Place High”, but I bet this is Placer High School since they were from the area. It looks like a school auditorium and that is an obvious school chair side stage.

Thanks to Ken Doose for telling me this existed.

Kaos- Demo 1983 xfer from Master/1st Gen Demo Tape Westchester/Putnam county NY

Here’s an OLD demo from Dan Pettit’s collection. Here’s what he has to say about it:
“Really cool Westchester/Putnam county NY band, this tape is super rare, near and dear to me as I went to high school with the drummer.
Barbie wants a real man and Surfing Commandos are stand out tracks…This tape is awesome and really deserves to be properly archived.”
You now have all the info I have. The demo contains the pictured J-“card”(actually paper) and a Maxell XLII tape.

Subhumans- Club Minimal, Sacramento Ca. 1983 xfer from master or low gen audiotape

Here is another rare treat from Tom Soriano. After having a grand total of ONE Club Minimal show in my collection for 30+ years, here is #4, with 3 coming in the past month. I am unsure about the date- when you look at Danny Ensele’s GREAT concertarchives site, it looks like Subhumans played Minimal on 4/15/84. Do any of the old timers know if they played there more than once?

Rampage Radio Show- KUSF, San Francisco Ca. Early 80s xfer from 1st gen Audio Tape Anvil Chorus AIIZ

During lockdown, I have been trolling Ebay more often than usual and I saw this tape for auction. It was listed as “Metallica Demo”, but when I saw the tape, I knew exactly what it was… and I know Ron’s handwriting from trading tapes with him back in the 80s. I was able to snag it for kinda cheap to share here. This is the best quality recording I have heard from the old Rampage Radio shows.
Side note: You will hear Ian or Ron talk about The Sweet at one point- this video was blocked because of the Sweet content, so I had to edit it out.
