After talking about it for far too long... I finally am gonna do this blog. I have been wanting to do a blog to upload a bunch of the live/rare/demo/etc stuff I have been collecting over the years for so long - but never got around it till now.
What can you expect? Well, you can expect the unexpected... as I have a pretty good amount of stuff I plan to share here. I have been tape-trading since the mid-80's when hardcore first became such a crucial part of my life, and with the digital age I am thrilled to be able to share much of what I have acquired along the way so easily.
I have a big batch of live sets I got from my friend BW that G-Man is transferring for me. These are mostly DC-area shows, many great sets from The BBQ Iguana, The Safari Club, the old 9:30 Club, and many others. My friend JH also helped me out with some great old/rare hardcore demos from Dischord(and related) bands. There will also be assorted things I have gotten that you may have seen elsewhere on occasion - though I am not gonna make that a regular habit. I want this blog to stand on it's own as often as possible with the content you find here.
What will you NOT see here? You will not see anything that in still available as a legitimate release, as I don't want this blog to be something that pisses anyone off. There are enough blogs that are just posting every new release out there - this blog will not fall into that category.
And finally... if you are in a band that is really bothered by a live-set or demo session I have posted, please contact me & I will remove it. I am doing this blog because I love hardcore/punk - not to make enemies.
Without further ado... thanks for visiting & check back often! DB
