Introduction I started collecting and trading live recordings and unreleased demos on cassette tape in 1981. Over the years I've traded with many people from around the world and have built an interesting collection. In the late 1990s and 00s I traded CD-Rs with other collectors. With this blog my intention is to post these rare demos and unreleased live recordings plus band interviews, zine scans, flyers and photos that I have also collected. Since the beginning of the KBD revolution I have been tempted to become a serious vinyl bootlegger. However, since none of these recordings are mine to sell and all of it I got for nothing, I've decided this blog is really the best way to get the music to interested people totally free. If you like what I am doing please leave comments and let me know. I will post my lists so anyone can request anything I have. Also, I have many 70s and 80s Punk records in mp3 format and don't mind posting some of them as long as they haven't been re-released on vinyl or CD.
