Piranha Brothers demo tape from 1997. Piranha Brothers were Steve Butcher (Guitars/Vocals), DK (Bass/Vocals) & Joe Hovask (Drums).
After a bunch of Philadelphia bands my friend Bill Rude (the Koosmans, Rotgut, Stinkbomben, Tons of Nuns, Rear Admiral) was in a band based out of NYC called Bad Ronald (along with other Tons of Nuns, Stinkbomben, Rear Admiral member Brian Sussman on bass) which was called “One of the greatest NYC bands that nobody knows but which everyone should know! – by Tony Autoharp Arena.
Recently they released an album that had not been released before as a benefit for Bob A. Lingus who had passed away.
“A year ago today our lives changed forever when we lost Bob. Giorgio and Brian had this pressed as a tribute to Bob, with all proceeds going to his children. Special thanks to Simona Prives for making the record look great and Deborah Suchman Zeolla for the great photos within, and Ellen Rosenholtz for taking these photos.”
“So here you go, 19 years after it was recorded. You can get this, plus this fabulous t-shirt, and in case you missed it the first time (apparently you did!) our two 7″s from the nineties right here at badronaldnyc.com
Please go check it out and if you can help out by buying some Bad Ronald music or shirts you won’t regret it.

and Lisa Green. (I will update this info when I get more.)

I was working on putting up the Fabulous Fondas’ demo tape called eight original hits when I noticed it was already available on Bandcamp. But, I still wanted to add a post of them and just use the bandcamp links instead of the files I made. The Fab Fondas were Rocco Sacco (vocals) Bill Fergusson (lead & rhythm guitar) Brain McGillin (rhythm guitar & vocals) Pete McCoubrey (bass & vocals) & Todd Yoder (drums & vocals)
Thanks for the tape Jackie
Two demo tapes & a live on WKDU (11-22-89) set from late 80’s Philly band Orifice. In the late 80’s early 90’s lots of bands were moving from punk/hardcore into Industrial Noise ala Test Department & Einstürzende Neubauten. Philadelpiha had a some good exmaples of this in Orifice, King Carcass, Sink Manhatten, Nine Firemen Nine and I’m sure olther I can’t think of now. I made a video for I believe thier song the Burning Bus for a RTF class at Temple. I would love to put the video in this post but my partner on the project kept the only copy of it and I have never got a copy of it. The band is made of Bryan Willette (ex Love Battery (philly one not sub pop band that came later)) Grant Acker (Un), Pete Danz, Don Glass, and Frank Phobia (Anthrophobia)
Thanks for the tape files Frank & jackie

Live on WKDU 08/04/1995 (Missing the beginning)
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.
