CRASH-N-BURN - "Alcohol" Demo (1987)

 
What better way would there be to follow up Dr Danger than Crash-N-Burn? None, I daresay!

This 1987 incarnation of Crash-N-Burn included John Sanders on Guitar, Keyboards and Vocals, Dean Menta playing Guitar and Percussion, who went on to play guitar with Faith No More, and Sparks, Amy Sanders on Bass, and Parry Wolfe playing the Drums.

Crash-N-Burn were an incredibly high energy band, and here's an awesome demo written by John that's a three minute and thirty-two second reminder of something none of us should be doing, drinking and driving!

DR DANGER - "Stuntman" (2021)

 
Greg Carpenter was the Assistant Director of our movie, "The Creep," and we really couldn't have done it without him. These days he's a stunt man and a daredevil who knows no boundaries, and his alter ego Dr Danger, apparently has no fear, and blows himself up, and crashes shit as his career. I only recently found out he's also an independent musician, which goes along well with everything else he does!
 
"They call him Dr Danger and it is his mission to travel the country looking for other bad asses just like himself willing to pay the ultimate price for a thrill and a paycheck. Here is some more of  of his music!
Here's two minutes and thirty-seven seconds of more cheap thrills!
DR DANGER - "Loose Devils"
 
And you better believe it!!
Can't get enuff? Then here's the whole catalogue!

MARK HANLEY and SONIA NOUIOUI - "Nonstop Now" (2018)

 
The music on this CD by Mark Hanley is like a strange dream. There's the voice of a mysterious woman speaking in a language you don't understand, and you have no idea what's going on, but somehow it's all very relaxing and comforting.

 
Mark and I made contact in the 80's, but I don't know how long he was making music before that, possibly forever, and each and every thing I ever heard that he did was unique and solid, and here we are decades later, and nothing has changed. Mark just keeps making amazing sounds.
Mark has teamed up on this CD with Sonia Nouioui in Tunisia, and a couple of tunes feature Keith Crockett on Bass, and Ace Holmes on Drums.

 
Here's a taste of what I'm talking about, and what Mark and his friends bring to the table!
If you write Mark at Kx4Music@gmail.com,
he just might sell you a copy, if he has any left!

HARSH REALITY MUSIC - "Woundz Never Heal Volume 1 & Volume 2 Compilation" (1988)(2021)

 
 If Chris Phinney had any spare time on his hands, he'd be re-releasing some of the 100's of tapes he produced for Harsh Reality back in the day, but since he doesn't have any spare time, he does it anyway, because that's the kind of guy he is!
It's called "Woundz Never Heal!" and is a compilation tape by 36 different artists in 1988.
Chris thinks it's one of the best compilations he ever made, and one of his proudest accomplishments!
It's been 33 years, let's see if the world has caught up to Chris's vision yet!
 From Voume 1, I think my fave in the batch is number 10................

From Volume 2, here's the lead song to set the mood.......
No Apologies - No Happening - No Healing!!!

This is what the world missed out on, and as the man says......
"The trip ain't nothin but a party ya'll!"

GAJOOB ISSUE #9 - SAMPLER #1 (1993)

Winter 1993 was a cold and lonely time but Bryan Baker kept on cranking out the Gajoob's. He hasn't quit yet, and you can read all about it on the GAJOOB MAGAZINE HOMEPAGE.
This sampler tape included a lot of stuff, and the cover was done by my pal Gary Wray, who also has a whole lot going on right now that you can read about right HERE! 
 
The cut I chose came off of this 1991 tape by KREL a space rock band from Manchester, England. These guys weren't exactly home tapers that's for sure, and played some interstellar stuff from some other universe, in a Hawkwind kind of way, so it's no wonder they are not still together. This tape was released on Carl Howard's "audiofile'" label.
If you want to read all about them, there's a massive biography on this Discogs page
