Back from tour, and back to one a day posts instead of that "waiting with baited breath - is there going to be a new demo today" feeling that I've been inflicting upon you for the last four weeks. LA's HALF OFF have always seemed to be stuck between eras - too late (and arguably to metal) for the early '80s heyday of So Cal hardcore, but a few years before the wave that included INFEST, NO COMMENT and other bands that they fall more in line with musically. These seven minutes come from a 1987 rehearsal, and this band is too good to keep slipping under the radar.
