The Eclectics - We Can Make it Happen (1996)

This is the Eclectics' demo tape. I am posting it by request. To be honest I thought I already posted it but I have searched the blog and found no evidence of any former post so - here you go. Obnoxious ska-punk done right.  The first three tracks are on the vinyl version of their first single but the song "Cutting" is not available on any of their other releases. The same recording of the song does appear on "Misfits of Ska II" but it plays faster on the cassette than on the cd version.

A1 - We Can Make it Happen
A2 - Boba Fett
B1 - Harry
B2 - Cutting

The Busters - 1987 demo tape

This is the Busters' first release. There are two studio recordings - Orion which was re-recorded and featured on their second album Couch Potatoes as Space Patrol Orion. The version on this tape is a different version from the one on Couch Potatoes. Then there is the song Keen on Games which is the same version that was on the bonus tracks of the Ruder Than Rude re-release.

A1 - Orion
A2 - Keen On Games
B1 - Guns of Navarone (live)
B2 - My Girl Lollipop (live)
B3 - Lip Up Fatty (live)


Much thanks to fellow skarcheologist Charles Leonard for preserving these tracks!
