Attitude Adjustment-dead serious demo (1985)
1. Electric Shock
2. 9 to 5 Religion
3. DSFA (doesn't stand for anything)
4. Kristallnacht (instrumental)
5. In The Center
7. Incredible End
8. Grey World
9. Dead Serious
10. American Paranoia
These guys meant everything to me in 1985-86 while I was living on speed in S.F. Andy "Airborne" Anderson the singer worked at the local record store (the record vault on Polk street), and was enthusiastic about all aspects of underground music. He was always telling stories, turning kids on to new fast music, etc.
I saw these guys at least a half a dozen times, everywhere from the Farm, to the on Broadway, to Ruthies Inn.
This was another band that appealed to me because they played the perfect blend of metal and hardcore punk, influencing so many kids like myself. This demo is so raw and pissed, its a genuine classic. It blows the LP away. Its rumored that Lars Ulrich recorded this demo, no idea of its a fabrication or not.
Andy I hear is now in comedy, and the drummer, Kontos was in Machine Head with some Vio-lence members.
The Above picture is why Andy got his nickname.
