ILLICIT


Ultra primitive UK rehearsal demo from a band I know nothing about. Some of the efforts here are rather laughable, but even in the midst of a bumbling and tuneless assault, brilliant songs creep out of the chaos. "Mindless Violance" (their spelling, not mine) is a perfect example; the song is hopelessly out of tune, delivered with the all the precision of a calligrapher writing in the dark, and a on target like a blind man at a shooting range...but somehow the song still rules. Recorded in the lowest of fidelities, this ILLICIT rehearsal tape captures a UK punk act at their most basic - do not bother if you are seeking slick and perfected anthems. Prepare your ears for a primeval battle of Tape Hiss vs. Unadulterated Ineptitude.

Thanks! always love to hear new unknow stuff. and it wasn't as bad as i supposed - it was actually really nice!

I found out that I've lost all the 'Autumn Poison' stuff that i had, so I downloaded it again from the 'Kill Your Pet Puppy' blog and separated the songs. If you want - i'll upload it to the 'Irish beer'-blog?

Please do Henk - I was kinda hoping you might know something about ILLICIT...but perhaps they were meant to remain a mystery...
