Orifice

logo

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!

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.

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.
