Black Market Baby - Washington D.C. 11-29-84

Black Market Baby were another of the D.C. bands that were outside the discord scene but were very popular in there. They only released one album and a single in the 1980s. This show was recorded from the audience and is a little rough and a classic example of tapes were not a perfect format for music because the first song suffers from tape warp. Still this show sounds like it was a hot night in D.C.

  1. The other songs are on the bitzcore lp's.Came out in 1991. In the 80's they had also a 10'' out with the nurses. Split release. I think only testpressings were made

  2. Thanks, BMB were a great band,very fun to see live DC "Bent Edge" tended to like them.
    Dr. Strange reissued some BMB stuff on CD, but the sound is off, seems like the guitars were buried.
