RIPCORD: The Complete Demos: CD

Sep 23, 2014

This venerated band’s demos are herein collected on a single handy-dandy CD for your mind-melting thrash-o-rama pleasure. It’s interesting to hear these cats again so many years down the line, because my memory is that American-influenced thrash bands were a bit of a rare commodity in mid-’80s Britain. While they didn’t receive the same immediate international attention as, say, the Stupids, they did dish out some viscous, vicious hardcore in their own right, and I think in the long run, they had more of a lasting impact. This collects six demos spanning a period of about a year and a half between 1985-86, all of it short, abrasive, and heavy.
