I love Wire! But truth be told, after 154 they totally lost me. I found this on the web the other day and I thought I would post it. Here we have demos form 1976. Some of these songs appear on the Peel Sessions cd that was released many years ago. This has decent sound quality so it is more for fans.

Wow oh wow is this good. I mean really good. Think back to the days of I've Got Asthma, Tommy Kowey's Car, Fisticuffs on Fredricks St. etc. Gone are the lame attempts by Olga to throw in too many guitar histrionics ala metal gods. This is how The Toy Dolls are supposed to sound. Love this!!!

Well finally this is seeing the light of day. Great chugging along hardcore from one of the Bay Area's best from the early 80's. Most of you that visit the site know that I am a huge Social Unrest fan right?...see interview with Jason Honea. Well this three song effort is more like their pre Jason days and has original singer Kretin Chaos singing. Much reccomended

well well well, look what we have here. I knicked this from a site in S. America, but really I don't care. This is just too good to not to share. What we have here is demos, and such cut with Paul Cook and Steve Jones with other people, as well as Professional demos. This is how cool this is. You get Chrisie Hynde with the boys, Joan Jett doing You Don't Own Me as well as I love RocknRoll. Some Lightening Raiders, Sham Pistols stuff which would eventually find its way onto one of the 90's Sham 69 albums. The Looters from the movie Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains with Ray Winstone singing and Paul Simenon on bass. Everything on here has fantastic sound quality. So cool to finally here some Sham Pistols and especially cool to have The Looters on my music!! Enjoy!

Dunno too much about this other than the fact that The Damned were in search of a bassist and Lemmy of Motorhead stepped into help. Of course you all have heard Ballroom Blitz a million times. Many bands have covered it and in fact The Damned did too. What we have here is the two bands rolling through some songs in the studio. Over The Top has Lemmy singing and to be honest, it sounds like a Motorhead song. The guitar playing on the leads would lead you to believe that Captain is playing due to the whah whah during the solo's. Ballroom Blitz has Vanian singing. This is pretty darn cool. The Damned roled through here last weekend in SF and played Damned Dammned Damned and the Black Album in their full. Missed it...............
Sorry for the delays on putting stuff up. I have been very busy with work and life. I got diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, and my back went out so my time has been limited. Don't worry though, I have some gems up my sleave.
