Initial Attack

Early funk influenced No Wave band from Philadelphia with Robyn Graves (Serial Killers) on vocals, Val Opielski (ps xo, Krakatoa, Bush Tetras) on guitar & Keyboards, Dan Melamed on Drums and the late Martel Fin on bass
Val gave me these tape’s files a while ago (when I wasn’t very actively making updates) and I have no idea why but I did not put them up then. (Sorry about that Val). Then Initial Attack was mentioned in a conversation about Yoni’s article about Philly No Wave. It made me check my look for it  and I had the demo. I hope there aren’t more things people gave me that I didn’t get up. Check this demo out.

Initial Attack – New Years 1984 Love Club

5 Story Fall

Finally can put up the 5 Story Fall demo (sort of) – this is recordings of the carts (which were basically 8-tracks with a single songs on them) from WKDU that  (luckily) Jackie had recorded on  a cassette. (Thanks Jackie)
5 Story Fall was John Gilmour (The She Males Encounters) – singing and some guitar, David Reworht  – guitar,  Kelvin Joyner – vocals, Rob Boyes ( Doctor at Tree) – bass  and Bobbie Ray – Drums.
“Bobbie went on to join Executive Slacks We lived next door to Matt Marello Matt and John Young were our idols! Executive Slacks and Lee Paris got East Side Club and Ripleys to book us but we were all notoriously underage all the time” – John
I have also posted a video with a couple of songs from a WKDU Band Bash in 1985 and some Flyers below.  Thanks to John Gilmour for the much needed info.

Molly Be Damned

Molly Be Damned were from Boyertown Pennsylvania and started life in the 1980s as a band called the Demented Foolz. In 1989 Demented Foolz stopped playing but in the early 1990s three of them got together with a new member and changed the name to Molly Be Damned. IN 1995 they recorded their first demo and in 1996 they had several songs on compilation CDs but were never able to get their own record or CD released before splitting up.

Ultravox – Hot Club 2/23/79

Th original London new wave band Ultravox with John Foxx as frontman and the main driving force behind the band before Midge Ure took over.

John Foxx: “March 1979 – Island had dropped us, and I was planning to leave because I thought synthesizers were going to change music in the same way that the electric guitar did. Then we were offered a tour of America by Miles Copeland and his brother [Ian] – there was a big audience for British new wave acts at that time. We flew over on the cheap with Laker Airlines and, as there were no luggage restrictions, took all of our instruments and our backline amps. When we got off the plane Miles’s brother was waiting for us with a van and we did six weeks with one day off. People like the artist Jean Michel Basquiat and John Frusciante from the Chili Peppers came to see us. The tour ended in Hollywood at the Whisky A Go-Go. After the last show I just told them all that I had had enough and was leaving, that they could have the name and the band identity. Things were already tense – at the end of long tours everyone is full of adrenalin but very tired – and a minor argument broke out although I can’t remember what it was about. Billy and Chris walked out of the dressing room and Warren stayed hut was really angry, although he didn’t shout, as we weren’t that sort of people. We left the venue in separate cars and I flew back to England on my own the next day. It was a great wrench to leave, but the grey suits were waiting. I wanted to work alone with a tape recorder, drum machine, a synthesizer and get rid of anything that was rock’n’roll. As for their later success with Midge Ure, I have nothing to say about them, as that band has nothing to do with me.”
