Anthrophobia - Rehearsals + Demo 1985

My first band was Suburban Aggression which it started in 1982 and was also the first Punk band in my hometown of Reading Pennsylvania. In February 1984 we recorded a demo and split not too long after. A couple of the guys went on to form Anthrophobia who recorded a demo at the end of 1985. The singer moved to Philadelphia in 1986 and put together a new line up and existed with various line ups for more than 20 years. These demos and rehearsal represent the beginnings of that band.

Follow Fashion Monkeys - Philadelphia 2-08-87 + Demo 1987

Here's another lost band from Lehigh Valley Pennsylvania. The release one album in 1985, toured the USA with Italy's Indigesti and recorded an unreleased album in 1987 at Inner Ear studios that was produced and mixed by Ian MacKaye and Don Zientara. The live show here has 5 songs that were on that album and the demo has another one. I think that album is now available for purchase on Itunes or one of those internet sites. The live show was recorded through the soundboard so the quality is very good. Sound quality on the demo is also very good.
