D.U.I. - Snot Rock And The Dirty Dozen demo 1997

D.U.I. were from the quaint village of Pennsburg Pennsylvania and were around for about three years in the mid-1990s. They recorded three demos and had two songs on a local CD compilation. Sadly, they never made it past the county line. They sound like early 1980s hardcore with Kurt Cobain singing. Sound quality is very good.

Suburban Youth/Kung Fu Monkey Patrol - Lazar Quest, Wyomissing PA 8-22-97

Here's two bands that were from my hometown in the 1990s. Two of the few. Both bands shared the same singer. Kung Fu Monkey Patrol were only around for a very short time playing only a handful of shows and never releasing anything. Their sound is influenced by early 1980s American hardcore and some of their songs have Ska parts. suburban Youth were influenced by early Seven Seconds and Minor Threat. They were around a couple years and recorded two demos and had two songs on a local CD comp. I recorded this show from the audience on a boombox and the sound quality is good.

Siouxsie & The Banshees/Adam & The Ants - Vortex, London 7-11-77

Here's two now legendary bands playing early shows at a legendary venue. Both sets were recorded from the audience. The Siouxsie set has good sound quality and has the advantage of being from a low generation cassette. The Ants recording is very rough and raw and is recommended for those who are Ants completists. The Ants set I lifted off the I Vomit For U!  blog. I've done some small editing to it to cut out gaps, raise playback volume and eliminate tape lead in and out. Has anyone got the Slits set?

Adam & The Ants setlist:
01. Lou
02. Puerto Rican
03. B-Side Baby
04. Deutscher Girls
05. Dirk Wears White Sox
06. Fat Fun
07. Fall In

Siouxsie & The Banshees setlist: [from cassette tape]
01. Scrapheap
02. Psychic
03. 20th Century Boy [Mark Bolan]
