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.

01 – Fugitive
02 – Slay the Vampire
03 – Suppression

Revelogic

Revelogic is a solo project from Marc Beck (Crankcase, Vick Logic, Ken, Heroics.) The Live from WKDU is from Marina’s show from April 12, 1996.
Then his full cd New Pacific Map which was easily one of my favorite cds from 97. Below that is the 7″ with Marc and Judith Schaechter who also creates amazing stained glass art (and they were in Ken together) – 2 of Marc’s No One Red Cent Cassette tapes – then his My Century cd compilation of other solo works.
