Anthrophobia Early Demos and Founding Fathers (Reunion CD)

Anthrophobia Practice

Anthrophobia has been around a long time with many lineup and a few location changes the one constant member is singer Frank Phobia. These demos and rehearsal represent the beginnings of that band in Reading Pennsylvania through the Philly years. The Rehearsal  and  first Demo were recorded during 1985 in Reading. Soon after that Frank moved to Philadelphia and put together a new line up and recorded a few more demos and a track on Discpan Hands / A Philadelphia Compilation The 1988 demo is still generally Punk based but has a definite metal edge to it. The 1992 demo was recorded when Grunge was king and that style is reflected there. There is the added benefit of Suzi Gardner from L7 on backing vocals.  A couple of these songs were released on a 7″ single. In 2014 the original members of the band reformed as The Anthrophobia Founding Fathers. They played a few reunion shows and released a cd Endgame, I also included pictures at the bottom of this post form the Founding Fathers  show I went to at Young Ones Records in Kutztown. In between and since Anthrophobia has released a lot of great albums you can listen or better yet buy them at their bandcamp page. They have a new EP called Altered States coming out August 14th 2020.

Thanks for sending me the demos Brett Noise Addiction II

Mean Streets – Tritone, Philadelphia 10-12-07

 

Stolen from their Facebook page

Formed in 2006 by ex-members of Philadelphia-area bands Cranked Up! and The War’s End, Mean Streets delivers an aggressive, yet catchy and accessible
punk and pop sound that draws upon a broad range of influences from the beat groups and bubblegum acts of the 1960s to the british punk aggression of the mid 70’s to the power-pop movement of the late 1970s and ’80s. Mean Streets currently consists of Bill Coburn (Lead Vocals, Bass), Mick Coburn (Drums, Backing Vocals), and Andy Mehos (Guitar, Backing Vocals).

In 2008 Mean Streets released two 7″ singles: “About You” b/w “Tied Down” on the Slab-O-Wax label and “That Day”/”Nineteen” on Longshot Records. In 2011 the band self-released a six-song EP entitled “Rewired” and recorded a split 7″ ep with Phoenix, Arizona’s Glass Heros on the Black Hole label. In addition to these releases, Mean Streets has appeared on numerous Philadelphia-area compilation CDs.

Doctor At Tree

Doctor At Tree

I know that I’ve seen Doctor at Tree many times in the late 80’s early 90s, but I don’t have a lot of info on the band – I do know that some of the members of the band where in 5 Story Fall before this band and that Cheshire from Stinking Lizaveta was also in the band. They played a lot with Scram and listening to the tape I can see why.
Thanks for the tape Jackie
