First up is our tune from the Hippycore compilation 7″ “Steel Provides Us A Headache”. Our observe is “I Need To Hear Horns”. The tune title was a quote by Joel Wing, former bass participant from Corrupted Morals, who was one of many founding members of Dance Corridor Crashers. Like lots of our comrades from the East Bay / Gilman scene, with the rise of Operation Ivy, he transitioned from a hardcore child right into a ska punk child. Therefore, his proclamation one night, “I need to hear horns!” So foolish we had to make use of it. Talking of foolish, on this tune we built-in hardcore with a Barry Manilow tune, after which ended with a Virulence tribute (which was minimize quick on the file). This observe was recorded at Chris & Todd Wilder’s home, in Todd’s bed room the place we all the time practiced. It was recorded on 4-track by Steve Von Until, or native pal from Transgressor who ultimately joined Neurosis and lived as much as his true Nordic potential (I imply the man served a roasted pig and mead at his first wedding ceremony). That is Wayne Vanderkuil, Jack Kahn (Hippycore, Desecration) and Jeff Bowers (Final Possibility) on the duvet of the comp. Most likely 1988. 4-track recording, on poorly mastered vinyl, and now transferred to MP3 through a brilliant low-cost Ion Duo Deck. Appears like crap. Sooner or later I will discover the unique cassette and put that up on this website as a substitute. I imagine we recorded an additional tune in that very same session… a Prison Class tune known as “Blood On The Streets”, considered one of our joke skinhead anthems. I will put up that someday as properly, if I ever discover it.
STIKKY – “I Need To Hear Horns”
Subsequent up on the shit parade is from the one time anybody ever bothered to bootleg a STIKKY tune. We have been followers of practically each hardcore band, and we regularly performed covers on the spot. We have been huge followers of CLOWN ALLEY and sometimes bumped into vocalist Dave Duran at Gilman. One evening we advised him we wished to play the Clown Alley tune “On The Means Up” if he sang it. He agreed. We did it. He acquired utterly misplaced. It was a minor trainwreck. One way or the other this recording ended up on a Gilman compilation bootleg double 7″ known as “Gilman Road Block Get together”. On the again cowl, the bootleg was justified as a supposed profit for East Bay Armed Response, no matter that made-up charity was. So, here is a poorly EQ-ed soundboard recording, ripped from vinyl on the identical crummy Ion Duo Deck. Take pleasure in!
