Three Foot Acid

Three Foot Acid with Freddie

Three Foot Acid were a short lived band from Philadelphia that featured the former Serial Killers singer Paul Bearer. They recorded one demo before exiting the stage. The sound for both of these shows was copied from old video tapes. They are both audience recordings and the sound quality is good.

Last Cry were from Lehigh Valley (Bethlehem) Pennsylvania and were around for only 6 months or so. In that time they opened for some big touring bands – Descendants and Marginal Man among them.

Head Cheese Booklet

Head Cheese 7"

Head Cheese was a post-punk band from the early 80s. While attending University of the Arts Susan Ottaviano meet Jade Lee and they formed a band with their friend Celeste Ries. They recorded one 7″ at  Third Story recording studio. I don’t have mp3’s of that 7 inch so instead I’ve included YouTube videos for the three songs. What i do have is a booklet that they put out – to be honest I am not 100% sure I put the pages in the right order but please check it out.
Head Cheese Booklet

The video for Jungle Jam was shot as a film project around Philly

Susan Ottaviano (who later went on to New Wave stardom in Book of Love) on the making of her Philly band Head Cheese’s single ‘Jungle Jam’ from 1982:

We recorded “Jungle Jam” at Third Story music, an 8 track studio in Philadelphia, in 1981. It was produced by David Javelosa, who we met at the East Side Club. He was performing with his group Los Microwaves at the time. The ‘Jungle Jam’ video was filmed in and around Philly and is truly a love story to the city. There are scenes on Broad Street, the gargoyles in City Hall, a basement on League street and a pig’s head from the Italian Market. The Jungle Jam video has just recently been posted on YouTube. One of the original directors of that video even works for Pixar now. He said that he had more fun on our movie than he does today. You should check it out. It’s pretty funny.”

Pass The Elixer Compilation

Tape cover

Pass the Elixer cassette tape comp put out by Freedom is Cancer Zine in 1987
Description of the comp:
Like a lot of people in the 1980s me and some of my friends made a fanzine. From 1985 until 1987 we printed 10 issues. For issue 9 we made a compilation tape with 90 minutes of solid Punk. Back then, because of different influences and ideas there was a diversity of sounds. And while all these bands are rooted in Punk none of them sound the same. We made our band choices to emphasize that diversity. The most well known band here is Disorder and the most obscure is P.K.G. from Torrence California who only recorded one 5-song demo before exiting. Each band has a full page in the zine. Sound quality is very good.

Eddie Hacksaw’s Night of Reckoning show

Eddie Hacksaw

Eddie Hacksaw was a pioneering DJ at WXPN in the early days of the Philadelphia scene. Personally I never got to meet him but I’ve always heard he was a great DJ that did a lot to promote the local scene. Tragically he died in a car accident August 1986.
This is a recording of one of his shows from December 1982
