Another complete mystery to me. I didn't like this demo from DOOR MARKED SUMMER on first listen, but as I was ripping it it got more interesting, and then it just got better and better. A reverb drenched recording and repetitive songs that drone on and remind me of BAUHAUS from time to time (methinks the first song sounds like BAUHAUS and mid era NEUROSIS combined). The vocals are definitely the weakest element, and the demo creeps too far into "rock" territory (after all, it is called Psychic Surfing), but the good far outweighs the bad here and even the seven plus minute "Put Me Down" is a total winner in my book. If anyone knows anything about DOOR MARKED SUMMER, let me know, even though I have no doubt that later recordings (if there were any) were likely pretty awful...this is a band that doesn't need to "mature" any more than they already have!
***UPDATE: was just handed a great fkkn link in the comments section to the Kent Band Archive. Cheers, balbulus, and please check out the site, it's a time vacuum in the best possible way (in other words, you can write off the rest of your afternoon!).
***Also, ANTI-STATE CONTROL post updated today with more of the rehearsal demo. After you are done getting all Psychic with DOOR MARKED SUMMER, you can tuck into that shit.
