Teengenerate - Spacehead, Silverlake CA 11-30-95

Teengenerate were a Punk band from Tokyo Japan that formed out of the ashes of the band American Soul Spiders. They existed between 1993 and 1996 and in those three years released a lot of records. They also  toured the USA several times. Here is one recording from one of their tours. Unfortunately my tape didn't do so well surviving the decades and so the first 6 songs here are messed up because of tape warpage and twist. It's an audience recording and sound quality is good. Can anyone fill in the song titles?

Sudden Death - demos 1982 + 1983

This Sudden Death were from Winnipeg Canada and existed a few years in the early 1980s. In 1982 they self released the Blood On The Floor demo and their second release was a proper official release on the Crossbones cassette label, also of Winnipeg. The basement demos were most likely recorded on a 4-track recorder but I don't know if it was ever properly distributed. Can anyone help with song titles? I have 12 song titles for the Crossbones tape but don't know which tracks they belong to and I have no song titles for the basement tape. Sound quality is excellent.

Society's Grudge - To Hell With Heroes raw tape (1983)

Society's Grudge were a hardcore Punk band from Winnipeg Canada who were around for a year or so in the early 1980s. In 1983 they released a cassette album title To Hell With Heroes. Without ever hearing the band I bought the tape through a mailorder ad in Maximum Rock 'n' Roll. I thought the tape was great and wore it out over the next couple years. Somewhere along the way my tape went missing and I have been searching for another copy ever since. Thanks to a kind blog follower I now have this. It is the raw tape used by the band/label for To Hell With Heroes. It includes false starts and talking between songs, which didn't appear on the final release. In addition, there are two songs that were not included on the final tape release. Unfortunately, this tape cuts off so there are several songs not on this tape which were on the final release. Sound quality is excellent.

track list:
01. Anti-Police Squad
02. Keep It To Yourself

Neos - O.A.P. Hall, Victoria Canada 7-01-82

Here are Canada's thrash heroes playing a show with now legends Subhumans, Black Flag and Saccharine Trust. I've posted the Black Flag and Saccharine Trust sets from this show on this blog about 6 years ago. This is a soundboard recording. Vocals and drums are prominent in the mix and the guitars fluctuate but the sound quality is excellent. Also, the last song on my tape cuts off but it was copied complete on another tape. However, that tape is lost so I don't have the complete song. Has anyone got the Subhumans recording from this show? I've never seen it in circulation. Can anyone fill in the unknown song titles?

Martha & The Muffins - Spize, Farmingdale NY 5-03-83

Martha And The Muffins were a New Wave band from Toronto Canada who had one massive worldwide hit in 1980 with the song Echo Beach, which, in my opinion, is one of the greatest summer songs of all time. On this show the band are playing mostly songs from their recently released fourth album, which is a bit more dance-y than the pop of their first album. This is from a radio broadcast and sound quality is excellent.
