Loveslug - Beef Jerky raw mix 1990

Before there was Turbonegro, before there was Hellacopters there was Loveslug, from Amsterdam Holland, who were delivering solid slices of Radio Birdman, stooges, MC5 influenced Rawk. These are raw mixes of the songs that would appear on their second full-length LP in 1990. Most of these tracks are instrumental versions and there is one unreleased original track and one unreleased cover song. These two tracks would have made a very nice single had it been possible.  Very good sound quality.

Johnny Ramone - KUSF station I.D 1981

For the Ramones collector who needs everything ever recorded by them here is a station identification that Johnny Ramone did for the radio station KUSF in San Francisco in 1981. It's less than a minute long. Sound quality is excellent.

track list:
01. Johnny Ramone - KUSF station I.D 1981

Descendents - California 1982/1983

These shows are both soundboard recordings. Unfortunately, they both suffer from being a thousand generations away from the original tape so there is tape hiss present. I got rid of as much as I could without wrecking the sound. The Heavy Metal intro on the T-Bird show is just a 13 minute time waste by two members while waiting for the other members to make it to the stage. Very good sound quality.

Steve Diggle - Demos 1-27-81

Here are some demo songs recorded by Steve Diggle in his home studio one month before the Buzzcocks split up in 1981. These songs feature guitar, drum machine and some vocals. None of the songs are finished and only the song Drift Away apparently ever got released (on a Flag Of Convenience album). These recordings provide insight into the songwriting process and also gets one wondering what a fourth Buzzcocks album might have sounded like in 1981 had they continued at that time.

track list:
01. Can You Dig It
02. Drift Away
03. Dancing At Dawn
04. By My Side
05. Don't Come Back
