These are taken from the Tehran demo cassette '87/'88; some of the oldest material the band has produced. Everybody enjoy.

very very very good

i love Offspring's first songs, like Revelations, or the demos, those are the best songs! :D

i'd love to have all the demos and songs before 1990, out of the Self Titled album...

05-17-2008, 05:52 AM
Oh.. I see now it's no demo, it's just the mp3 of Demons from the San berubin show in 87 (or 89?). It's was named "Demons (demo)", but no, it's no demo.

Sorry, my mistake!:D

EDIT: I also have the concert from San Berubin (thanks though!), but I don't know how to upload songs. I downloaded all the songs from the show in mp3, I don't remember where I found them but they're out there somewhere! Guess someone else knows where to find them?

Yep, I'm stoned (not caused by marijuana, but by the demos). The same feeling :D

And BTW, San Berubin show can be found on offspringbootlegs on the best quality you can find. The video has colors (!) and the mp3's are not interrupted like those circulating the net.

Out of curiosity, how do these demos usually get released if they haven't been not officially?

In a similar way to the promo cd soxicmusic had lately, I guess.
Edit: Well soxic probably had no promo cd, but you get the idea, do you?

Blackball_

Out of curiosity, how do these demos usually get released if they haven't been not officially?

usually demos are made for one of two reasons, working on a song, and whoever is writing the song will record it all themself in their bathroom or some shite to play it to the rest of a band as a rough song to work on.

secondly theyll maybe get into a cheap poor recording studio and play the song 4 or 5 times through then pick the best. take a couple of these and put them onto a demo, whcih would be sent (with a begging letter) to a radio station or record company.

its usually type 2 that gets into the public domain, someone at the label passing on the tape to a friend if they might like it, or whatever. theres a zillion ways it can trickle out.

I love how it takes 20 years for this stuff to surface. the band should release all their old demos, theyre all pretty good and i think its really sweet to hear how the songs progressed. some demos i like better than the original. theres one in smash (kick him or we are one?) where theres an extra guitar riff. hot.

Thanks A Lot for links :)one more time ....but i think demos contain a lot of bass in sound then everything turn lowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww....(

Yeah, they do. Edit them if you want. It may sound better. These are unedited.

F@ BANKZ
05-18-2008, 02:37 PM
That's good with me, in fact I think I'll put up a request.

Sudden change-of-mind edit: On second thoughts no, I don't really want to hear anything but the original sound. If anybody else wants to though it's still fine by. It might be an idea to edit and arrange all of the demos from S/T to run consistently well together now that we have so many.

holland25
05-18-2008, 02:40 PM
Well, I think it will help. I mentioned that the bass drum is much more audible than anything else after listening to them for the first time.

Yep, Hopeless (1985), Blackball & I'll Be Waiting (1986) are older. But not so rare.

Heh, he could if he recorded the side B on a tape he sent to Blackball_ :D

Actually, BB ripped the tape after having it sent by BANKZ.

He owns the original tape, but he doesn't have an equipment to rip it.

F@ BANKZ
05-20-2008, 08:47 AM
It's more about the ability really.

I never thought that anybody would want the B-side, the tracks are the same from Born To Kill (I've double checked both tracks) the only difference is that it would sound just as weird. Though Blackball_ and I could rip you the B-side- I think I can speak for both of us- we can't be bothered. The quality appears to be worse and I try to avoid using the cassette if I can help it. I don't trust any technology more than half a decade old for that matter.

holland25
05-20-2008, 09:06 AM
Yeah, I'm satisfied with the A-side, I don't need the B-side. They Were Born to Kill is enough for me.

It's a tradition. One was established to talk about Slovakia in general (therefore it is in General Chat) and the second was establish to force the band to come to Slovakia, which it the end happened :)
