No Alternative - Live + Demo 1980

No Alternative were originally called KGB and were a San Francisco band that existed from 1978 to 1982. They appeared as KGB on a live compilation title Can You Hear Me Music From The Deaf Club that was recorded in March 1979 and released in 1980. In September 1979 as No Alternative they had one song on the SF Underground 7"ep and their only 7" was released in 1980. Their last release was one song on the Not so quiet On The Western Front compilation put together by Maximum Rock 'n' Roll magazine in 1982. After that they disappeared until the late 1980s when they briefly reformed and released a split 12" with a band called Lifeline. since then two CD collections have been released to the joy of fans everywhere. The sound quality on the demo is very good and the live show is a soundboard recording with excellent sound quality.
