Blood Money - Metalyzed demo (1985)

Here's one of my favorite NWOBHM bands. They were from Manchester England and existed from 1984 to 1988. They released two albums in 1986 and 1987. The vocals remind me of Glen Danzig and Dave Vanian  - no high falsetto singing or over the top guitar wanking. Four good high energy songs. Sound quality is very good.

Some info here:

01. I Was Wrong

Corpse Grinders - CBGB, NYC 1978

Corpse Grinders are a famous New York City band that featured Rick Rivits who was a member of the New York Dolls before they were called the New York Dolls and Arthur Kane who was a member of the New York Dolls and played on their two classic albums. The Corpse Grinders were only around for little more than a year and released one classic single. In the early 1980s they reformed and recorded two weak albums before disappearing and in 2001 an LP of demos and live tracks was also released. These two live recordings from 1978 will give you an idea of what a Corpse Grinders album would have sounded like in 1978 had they released one. Arthur Kane plays bass only on the first show. They are both audience recordings and the sound quality is good.

T.S.O.L. - Los Angeles CA 1982

Here's two T.S.O.L. shows to start off the new year. I have two sources for the Whiskey show, though, neither is the complete show. As usual the audience recording has good sound quality and the soundboard recording is very good. The T-Bird show is an audience recording. During the show there were numerous power failures so the recording is choppy. The sound quality is good. On the T-Bird show they have added the keyboard player but it's not possible to hear much of him so you'll get to hear all the Beneath The Shadows with minimal keyboard.
