Two new demos from two very promising Chicago hardcore bands. First up is the Gas Rag demo. I had been seeing this band's name everywhere and was finally able to snag a copy. Very good early 80's hardcore punk on display here. New EP due out soon on Beach Impediment Records and I've heard the tracks SMOKE.
Second demo is from a band called Future Cops. This takes more of a fastcore approach. The layout on this tape is very clever. It's an emulated speeding ticket, with all the recording/band credits, and lyrics. Pretty awesome.
