This is the first of 2 demos for the band. At the ages of 15-17, this band surprised the scene by being extremely tight, fast, & different from everything else going on locally.
The demo was recorded in 1 day by Rick Neufeld (Wallaceburg). The band found themselves playing all over Ontario & often having to leave the venue after their sets because they were way to young to be inside the clubs they were playing.
This was the beginning of a writing team of Shawn & Jesse who later played together in the Janet Theory, Dead Girls Union, Demo Kid, Infinite Arms & Saint Ends. Chuck also played in all these bands, except the home demo sessions for Demo Kid.
Before the release of the pink tape demo, they recorded a three song demo that was never released. This recording had Simon Coleman on drums.
Released on cassette only. Recorded September 16-18 1991.
