Entirely Distorted - What Gives?

I'm so happy to finally have this demo! It's been many a year, but it's finally come into my possession. It's rad and well worth a download. Thank you, my fellow transplanted North American who also now lives in Africa.

Get it at Punkanda. Entirely Distorted

Featuring future members of Seaweed, Alphabet Swill play some decent late eighties punkage and is definitely worth a listen.

D.C. Beggars: You’re So Pretty (1991)

I wish I could blame my lack of blog related activity on the hot season that has inflicted so much discomfort on the denizens of my humble Zambian metropolis, but that would be a lie. Naw, I’m just not that committed to Thought Crime. No biggie though; a post once or twice or month suits me fine.

I saw D.C. beggars when they toured with The Detonators. Good show. A whole wack of years later, I bought their seven inch. Better late than never, I suppose; kind of like this blog in a way.

Assault: Race To Destruction (1990)

1990 was a magical time for me. Lots of things were good. My punk rock band just started, I skipped school all of the time, and punk was still mostly underground. Long gone are those days. If only I could skip stuff all the time now. Alas, ‘tis not to be, what with responsibility and all.

Anyhow, in honour of 1990, here is a record released that very year by Assault, who were, I think, from California. The second side of this record just rips, while the other is a bit, I don’t know, contemplative. So if you like contrasting styles, then this just might be for you.

I’m going to dream about skipping stuff now.

Aversion Therapy: Aversion Therapy (1991)

I don’t know much about this band except they were from Australia. All I can say for sure is that I really dig the singer’s voice and the music is snappy punk stuff. Enjoy!

Rat Pack: Ice Cream, Acid & Cigarettes (1989)

Oops, it’s been a while. I’d like to say I was doing something cool, like hunting giraffes, but that would be a lie. I did see many an elephant though in the Lower Zambezi.

Next up for your listening pleasure is Rat Pack. I bought this record solely because of its title. It really is such a rad one.
