600 School - 1982 demo

600 School is mostly just known for their guitarist, Ben Shepherd, who also played bass in Sound Garden and can be seen doing so with a cool ssd shirt in the photograph to the right. The band hailed from Kingston, WA and their only known recording was a cassette recorded live on a 4-track in the bassist, Mike Swanzey's living room in about an hour's time. This is their 1982 demo which you can download at the bottom of this post. They play pretty standard early 80s hardcore similar to the Necros. Catchy, fast(but not quite hyper speed), cool, and, like everything I try to post, overlooked. So check them out:

Satan's Cheerleaders - Created in your image 1983 Demo

Ok all i know about this Long Island band is that they are pretty damn fast, short, and obscure. And that theyre most likely named after the 1977 exploitation film of the same name. and I'm pretty sure theres a rockabilly band by the same name too.. Anyway I saw them listed on kill from the heart and then managed to find their first demo via soulseek and it is some pretty good shit. Warp speed, fucking pissed off early 80s stop go thrash with occasional cool slow intros and some of the most ferocious vocals ever in the vein of deep wound and deranged diction(see previous post) and totally overlooked so check it out:

Deranged Diction - No Art, No Cowboys, No Rules tape

I first heard Deranged Diction on the Mystic 1983 Compilation LP "We got Power" and then again on the BCT 1984 compilation tape "Eat Me" and had been searching franticly for their "NO ART, NO COWBOYS, NO RULES" tape (1983) all over da hottest file sharing networks in town until I found it and I must say, this tape/demo rips. I'd reccomend it to fans of Deepwound or maybe Urban Waste or any other generic, raging, prepubescent, 80s hardcore band that plays at thrash speed and makes me jizz everywhere. Oh and their bass player went on to play in everyone's favorite obscure hardcore band, PEARL JAM! So download the zip file i've uploaded containing all 19 tracks from their No Art, No Rules, No Cowboys Tape if you're into fast, prepubescent, American hardcore:

0DFX - 83 demo

..finally you can start breathing again. With much anticipation you have been checking this thing frequently only to find that nothing has changed, but that changes right now(as this is an update). I think i will move the direction of this to a more "I post mad obscure demos and 7"s by mad obscure 80s hardcore bands whenever i feel like it" approach. So with that being said the first mad obscure 80s demo I will post is Zero Defex (aka 0dfx aka zero defects) - 83 demo they also have an 82 demo but this one is better. btw some cool label is remastering all of their shit on cd soon so be sure to pick that up because all of the profits go to.. the jimmy fund. If you're interested in the band's history check this link as it has more than you need to know about them as well as some cool reunion videos, etc. Anyway this demo fucking destroys and sounds almost identical to poison idea - pick your king era. Most songs are under a minute and fast as hell. This band is way too underappreciated so do yourself a favor and appreciate them:
