Mid 90’s Punk band from Philadelphia. They released one 7″ and an LP plus I’ve included a demo tape and part of a Live on WKDU set from Marina’s show.
King James Version was Scott Slagle (Derelict Hotel) – Vocals & Guitar, Dane Wilson (Derelict Hotel, Sugar Skulls) – Drums, Shannon Lynn – Guitar & Phil Calabrese or Shane Dilworth – Bass.
(Thanks for the tapes Marina)
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.
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.
Molly Be Damned were from Boyertown Pennsylvania and started life in the 1980s as a band called the Demented Foolz. In 1989 Demented Foolz stopped playing but in the early 1990s three of them got together with a new member and changed the name to Molly Be Damned. IN 1995 they recorded their first demo and in 1996 they had several songs on compilation CDs but were never able to get their own record or CD released before splitting up.
Thanks for the files Brett Noise Addiction II
Immaculate Hearts was the late Philadelphia (and Toronto) legend Freddy Pompeii singing and Dee Pop on drums along with Steve House (Guitar), W.G.Hamilton (Bass). Freddy was in the Viletones (Toronto), the Secrets (Toronto), Bubble, Gas Company, Fight Fuck or Dance, and Dee Pop is the drummer for Bush Tetras from New York City
I’ve collected everything I could find for this band – First up is a Live set from WKDU on Jackie’s show, Jackie also had a 6 song early demo tape. Then the 3 – 7 inches they released and an unreleased set of songs that Brett saved off an old MySpace page. Finishing up with an amazing Tribute video put together by Craig Surgent of a Paul Revere & the Raiders cover song (Good Things).
