Fade To Black and Savage Silence are the same band. They changed their name for reasons I can’t remember. Robin Grey became Robin Graves when she played bass for Serial Killers and the drummer on the Fade To Black tape was Miguel Gonzales who was the original drummer for Sadistic Exploits in 1980-1981.
Thanks for the tape files Brett Noise Addiction II
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.

Before White Zombie and GWAR when Marilyn Manson was just that weird goth kid smoking cloves outside his high school there was the Serial Killers (ok, I’m not sure all of that is true but I thought it sounded good) Live they were kind of like a slasher movie musical. Maybe the special effects were not Tom Savini quality but it was a good show. Once again I don’t have the cover for this demo so I’m not sure about what the line up was on it. The first three songs (two are on the same file) were also on the album (not sure if the recordings are different); Snake Pit and the cover of Iron Man I don’t believe were released anywhere else. The last song Abdullah the Butcher was from a compilation 7″. According to Paul’s myspace they are working on re-releasing the Roadside Rendezvous album and then doing a one off show in Philly. Hopefully that will happen. In the meantime if you want to check out that album and the follow up seven inch (although you can’t download the sample of dirt from philly’s own serial killer Gary Heidnick’s yard) – the links are below: Roadside Rendezvous CD Re-release Heidnik’s House Of Horrors 7″
To the best of my knowledge all of the music links are for recordings that are out of print but if you enjoy what you hear, buy other records and support the artist(s) and/or labels: if you don't approve of having your material displayed and would like to have it down...Email Me @
