Jeff Hanneman- Home Demos 1985/86 xfer from 2nd gen cassette

Happy Tuesday Everyone. This one will probably be a total TL;DR.
These posts are for Bobby Khan- thanks for the Slayer book! It was pretty damned good.
Pap Smear was a side project featuring Jeff Hanneman & Dave Lombardo (Slayer), and Rocky George from Suicidal Tendencies. My friend & Roseville High School Alum Matt Polish (IGD) also handled vocal duties on one demo. I believe I have the best copies of these tapes, as I got them from Matt.
Here’s the backstory of Matt’s involvement (and how I got the tapes). Matt befriended Slayer in August of 1984- he approached Tom Araya at the Aquatic Park show in Berkeley with beer and became fast friends with the band. He toured with them on the Summer Fashions Tour in 1985. At about this time, Jeff Hanneman would invite Matt to L.A. where they would get hammered and do music or other stupid stuff. One time, they went to Toys R Us to buy the most stupid thing they could think of. Matt won the competition by buying a kiddie pool.
So every few months, Matt would call me (he lived in Rocklin) and tell me to come over. He would play me tapes that he got from Jeff from his trips to L.A.. Some of them were classic punk tapes (Wasted Youth, Black Flag etc) and some were Pap Smear demos. I would copy everything and keep them stored away. Matt’s original (1st gen) copies from Jeff are gone, so this 2nd gen is probably the lowest tape available.
Here is the second tape that Matt brought back. This tape was amazing- it filled up most of the 45min side. It has A couple of Hanneman home demos, Papsmear with Jeff on Vocals, Bloodcum’s Wild Rags demo (WAY better then the official release) and Papsmear with Matt Polish on Vocals.
This Jeff solo stuff is so great. I bet he recorded a ton of this stuff. Hopefully Kathy or his estate will release it one day- so good.

Pap Smear- Demo 1986 Jeff Hanneman on Vocals xfer from 2nd gen tape Slayer Papsmear

There are 3 versions of the Pap Smear demo- the one I posted yesterday (instrumental), this one with Jeff on vocals, and the one with Sacramento native Matt Polish (IGD) on vocals. I should be able to post that one tomorrow.

Don’t tell Matt or Tom Araya, but these are my favorite versions of these Papsmear songs. Jeff kicks ass on vocals.

Jeff Hanneman- Home Demo #2 xfer from 2nd gen tape w/Angel of Death bridge Slayer

Here is the 2nd Hanneman demo that was on the tape from Matt. This is a one song demo that features a bridge from Slayer’s Angel of Death. This was probably written before the Slayer song, and Jeff grabbed the bridge from this song since it fit so well. It’s odd hearing this again, after hearing the Slayer song so many times.

Pap Smear- Demo w/ Matt Polish Vocal xfer from 2nd gen tape Slayer Papsmear

Here is the last demo from the tapes that Matt brought back from Jeff. Matt told me that he was “singing” a bit off time because Jeff got him extremely drunk, and then decided to record vocals.

Slayer- Crest Theater, Sacramento Ca. 4/13/85 xfer from Audio Master

Here’s the other tape I transferred today. Since there was so much hype about Slaxodus playing the pizza park a couple weeks ago, here’s the real deal from the first time they came to Sacramento. My friend Matt Polish got me and my cousin Tony backstage to hang with the band. Good times. One of my big regrets was hanging backstage with Slayer during Venom’s set. I figured I’d catch them next time…

Pap Smear- First Instrumental Demo xfer from 1st/2nd gen Tape Jeff Hanneman Slayer Papsmear

Here is the first tape that Matt brought back. In fact, this one may be the actual tape that Matt brought back—I never bought realistic tapes. So, this one may be a 1st gen from Jeff’s tape, or it may be a 2nd gen.
