Here’s a post for one of my oldest music friends, Greg Dean. We met in 1982(I think) while working at Valley Parcel Service- a sh*tty second rate delivery company. We took the stuff legitimate companies like UPS wouldn’t touch. We had a forklift that blew black smoke. Hey, maybe that’s why I hock stuff up all the time.
Anyway, Greg and I became good friends- he turned me on to Motorhead and Girlschool, and I helped him discover “newer” bands (in 1983) like Queensryche. Greg bailed from the parcel company to manage The Borman Six and promote some local shows. I think he moved to L.A. with the band in the late 80s.
From there, he hasn’t been up to much.. he only started one of the best live sound companies in L.A., supporting multiple Warped tours and touring with KMFDM among others. He then became the leader of a company that performs stage setup/teardown/tour logistics for BIG bands like Green Day and Megadeth. How cool is that?
Anyway, back to The Borman Six. Greg lent me his Borman six tapes about 10 years ago so I could digitize them for him. I’ll post one or two per week here for the next few weeks.
Here is their first one- the first demo from 1986. I didn’t think to take pictures or scan the tape covers when I borrowed these, so I don’t have much info. If Greg (or others) can fill me in on details (tracklist, studio, engineer) that would be cool.
NOTE: Kevin Lee (from Rebel Truth) on vocals.
