Want List #3 1984 Hardcore Punk Demos

Here is another list of demos that are reviewed in Maximum Rock 'n' Roll zine issues #16,#17,#18,#19 and #20. I'm not collecting the tapes but would be quite happy to have them in mp3 format. I just want to hear them first and maybe add them to the blog to get them some circulation. If you have something and want to trade send me an email. I'm sure some of these have been bootlegged, released on vinyl/CD or have been put up on YouTube but I'm sure a lot of them haven't.

  1. That Plasmid demo was released as a 7" about a decade ago. I have mp3s at 128 kbps and would be interested in live/demo stuff by Kremlin Korps.


    1. There are no Kremlin Korps demos. Only a live tape, and a couple videos on Youtube.

  2. Some of the stuff your looking for is here
    ...and No the blog is not all about fanzines, alot of hard-to-find tapes for download!
    Have fun!

  3. That No Idea demo may be on the Mad Blasts Of Chaos blog which has a lot of NZ stuff.
    From memory it was better than their LP

  4. Hey,I have some of those rar Demos your looking for like
    Happy World
    Inner Ear Damage
    Earth Shoes for the Needy
    Certain Death
    Shemps and more

    1. Can you send me a private email? I'd like to get whatever you have off of you. I have gotten a few things off my lists but not everything, yet.

    2. Dear Anonymous,

      I am also interested in the Liebis / Anti-Heroes Demo. Could you send me a mail as well?


  5. Would be really interested in finding some of the Peasants With Pitchforks demo. My dad actually was the drummer in that band back in 80s. Would be cool to hear some of his stuff.
