Two demo tapes from late 80’s Philly band Orifice. In the late 80’s early 90’s some of the scene was moving from punk/hardcore into Industrial Noise à la Test Department & Einstürzende Neubauten. Philadelphia had a some good examples of that move in Orifice, King Carcass, Sink Manhattan, Nine Firemen Nine and I’m sure other I can’t think of right now. The band was made up of Bryan Willette (ex Love Battery (philly one not sub pop band that came later)) Grant Acker (Un), Pete Danz, Don Glass, and Frank Phobia (Anthrophobia),
I made a video for (I believe) their song the Burning Bus for a RTF class at Temple. I would love to put the video in this post but my partner on the project kept the only copy of it and I have never been able to see it again. I’m sure it was brilliant piece of 1st year of film school cinema. 🙂
Thanks for the tape files Frank!
