IDENTITY CRYSIS-Tied To The Tracks 7" (1986)

3.unseen foe
5.driving force

I first heard the song "Memories" by these guys on a Maximum Rock n Roll radio show back in 1987 when I was living in the Bay Area.  I was stoked and fully into the bands sound.  That same year my band the Romper Room Rejects was lucky enough to play a gig with them in Davis California at "the Place".  After seeing that gig I was even more blown away by the bands brand of low fi thrash.  Mix RKL with the FU's and you have Identity Crysis.  It took me a very long time to track down this record. Thanks to Daniel Rosen for hooking a brotha up!  Six ripping thrash songs on this perfect slab.  Enjoy!

2.psychonaut children of shadows

This is a demo tape I played drums on along with fellow Maplewood New Jersey friends Zack, and Jenn.  I met Zack at the local jiffy Lube...dude was wearing a Sleep shirt so I had to have a conversation.  We realized we'd had many friends, and the love for similar music in common.  We both liked the idea of playing instruments that we hadn't normally played in bands, and we both wanted to jam on some heavy or harder pysch influenced riffs.  Jenn I'd known for years, and I told Zack that I thought she'd be the perfect bass player for what we were doing. The band is a really slow work in progress, but we love what we are doing and we have a 7" coming out in April.  Enjoy these four tunes.
