Tons of Nuns – First 2 Demos

Brian sent me a tape with the first two Tons of Nuns Demos (Thanks Brian.) This is the earlier lineup for Tons of Nuns with Brian (Bad Ronald, Rear Admiral, Mad Bomber ), Bern (The Julia Set), and Art (Photon Band, Uptown Bones, Lilys, etc.). I haven’t heard these songs in a long time it was really nice to hear them again. If you want to hear the XPN in studio and the later version of Tons of Nuns see my earlier post here

Tons of Nuns

Tons of Nuns was originally a three piece band with Bern (The Julia Set), Art (later of Photon Band, Uptown Bones, Lilys, etc.) and Brian (Bad Ronald, Rear Admiral, Mad Bomber ) To check out this version of the band see the Live from WXPN tracks below. (i wasn’t sure of if I got all the names of the songs right please send me any corrections if their is a mistake) After Art left Bill Rude (the Koosmans, Bad Ronald, Rotgut, Stinkbomben, Rear Admiral) and Dan Levin (Sadly he died in a car accident July 4, 1991) joined the band . They recorded a demo which I called the 3rd demo tape (see below.)  One track from the demo “What’s it Gonna Be” was on the Rave Records’ Discpan Hands: A Philadelphia Compilation which is still available on itunes and amazon.
