Man, thanks to Mike Parisi for bringing this one over. This is the earliest known recording of Redrum: Members: Carlos Yniguez- Vocals Greg Williams- Guitar Mike Caboy- Bass Scott Capizzano- Drums This was recorded because Greg was leaving Redrum to join a band named Sentinel Beast. They were trying to recruit Mike Farrell to take Greg’s place on guitar, so they made these recordings to influence him to join. These are quite a bit different than the thrash redrum songs we know. More street metal than thrash, and they are GREAT. Tracks: 1. Do or Die 2. Fight for Your Life (later performed by Sentinel Beast) 3. Tonight (later performed by Sentinel Beast) 4. Death in Disneyland (later performed by the new Redrum) 5. Unknown (use it or lose it?) 6. Money Talks 7. Heart Attack Woman 8. Unknown

Thanks to Chris Macias for uploading this one!
Growing up in #Sacramento during the 1980s, if the conditions were just right, you could get KPFA 94.1 from Berkeley on your radio.
The signal might be kind of janky, but it doesn’t matter. You hit “record” on the cassette player and let it roll on the Maximumrocknroll show.
All these years later, it’s a blast of NorCal punk/hardcore that still hits like the Reagan Years all over again

Fun fact: When I was helping Radley (original Gilman soundman & MRR Radio assistant) sell some stuff on ebay, he gave me 2 really cool things: The original P.A. from gilman, from the 80s, and the Ampex tape box that held MRR Radio show #1 on cassette. It would be recorded locally, then sent to a tape duplicator, then cassettes were sent to the radio stations for syndication.
So I’ve been doing my best to keep things light during our current bleak situation, and this definitely fits the bill. Here are some future local musicians who participated in Bella Vista High School’s “Battle of the Airbands” in 1984. They are the first band on the video, starting at about 2:00 with a rousing air cover of the crue’s red hot.
Band members are:
Greg Johnson (Decay), who went on the be in the Anal Babies and After Dark Club
Pat Camarillo (aka PJ Carelli when he was in hair metal outfit Black & White)
Lance Keylon & Kevin Howe.. who did not go onto a career as a famous hair metaller.
