Nuns - Demo 1977

The Nuns from San Francisco existed from 1976 to 1979 and in that time they only had two singles released. At the end of 1977 they recorded demos for CBS Records but did not get a record deal. They moved for a while to New York City in 1978 and after returning to San Francisco they split up. In 1980 a final single was released before some of the band members got back together to record an LP for the Posh Boy label. These two songs are some of the demos they recorded in 1977 with the original line up. This is from a radio broadcast.

  1. Great Post!!!

    Thanks, Tim, Hamburg

  2. Hi Tim, I only have these two songs. I don't know how many songs they recorded and no other tapes of those demos have ever surfaced in trade circles, unfortunately. There is a little info on this myspace page:

  3. Hi... I stumbled across this blog when trying to find the Nuns demos. I have another song that was probably from this session, "Gettin' Straight," that I taped off the radio in the summer of '78. I've uploaded it at 320. Hope you like...
