Papsmear-lunch for the p.m.r.c. demo (1987)

Image Hosted by

I got this from the drummer of T.H.C. (Thrashing Hectic Circle) in Livermore CA. at a show in around 1987.
Papsmear were one of those metal bands that when you mentioned their name, girls went,,,ewww!
They were from Las Vegas and played some pretty awesome speed/thrash metal that had some great hardcore influences. I'd compare them to Sacrilege B.C.
The band never had a proper release, but only three demo tapes. Its a shame, because they were great. This demo is only about 10 mins long, but well worth having.


  1. They were one of the few bands to thank Romper Room Rejects on their demo.

  4. Thanks so much for this post!
    In the glory days of metal and tapetrading they were one of the most promising bands...
    I remeber the buzz about this unit..
    word was that it was a project of Dave L. from Slayer..
    shame they never made an album!
