Bent Peg "Vuja De: That Incredible Sense of Never Having Been There Before" - 1996 CD

The ever quirky Bent Peg were a huge part of the local music scene in the Cortland / Ithaca area in the mid-90's. Hard to quite describe their sound, bits of Faith No More and maybe The Offspring, Punk, Rock, Oddness. Super energetic live. After a few demos, they went into Penguin Studios in Syracuse and recorded this masterpiece. They had it mastered at Pyramid Sound Studios by Alex Perialis and Jason Arnold, and it still sounds great almost 20 years later. I do have some, if not all, of the demos, which I will get up sooner or later, as well as some live videos. Matt Barnes, the frontman of the band, is currently in Genitor, as well as a host of other bands.

Lethargy - Live April 12, 1995 at Vertex

Not a demo this time around, but some cleaned and mastered live video from Lethargy. From Rochester, NY, Brann Dailor went on to drum for Mastodon, and Eric Burke is in a million bands and projects, including Sulaco, Nuclear Assault, and Brutal Truth. Lethargy was always one of my favorite bands to see live, and I did so as much as possible. I did not record this, and thanks to Chris Dalcin for the recording. I plan on uploading the other two bands from this show, Windbreed and Pigmaster, soon...

The Vimeo page is here;  and you can download the MP4 from there if you want.

Top 88

I haven't had a lot of time to add new demos, but some of you I thought may find this interesting. This is the Top 88 songs from 1988 on The Rock Shop on WSFW in Seneca Falls. No idea why I still have this, but it amused me that I did. So I shall share it with all of you. I believe the first page was most requested or something like that. Anyways, just double click to enlarge...

M.T. Web - 1994 Demo

So M.T. Web hailed from Seneca Falls, NY, and featured the same vocalist as Saint Chaos and Groovy Seeds. I do believe this was a solo project, and honestly, I know little about it. It does have a cool Robin Trower cover of Bridge of Sighs on it. It's worth checking out, it's a bit more mid-tempo than his other bands, but still quite good.

Milk Toast - 1989 Demo

So these guys were from Cortland, NY. At least one of the members went on to the band Creeper (whose demos I plan on uploading at some point), who then got signed to Roadrunner Records as Shank 456 (due to some lawsuits over the name Creeper). Anyways, Milk Toast were rather cool, as you can hear from this demo. This needed a lot of work to master it up to a more listenable form. The standout track, would definitely have to be, Ball of Hate. Enjoy...

Final Nation 1990 Demo

This band I know nothing about. I found the demo, it rocks, and there is no info. Just that it was released in 1990 and they are called Final Nation. Female fronted Rock / Power Metal. Two great songs. If anyone knows anything about this band, please let me know!
