Skankin' Pickle - 1990 demo cassette



People write to me every now and then and ask me if they can re-post something I've posted. My answer is always YES. Please help me put this stuff out there so that real ska fans have access to it somehow or another.

This tape is something that I know a lot of people will appreciate so if you have a blog by all means re-post this. It's Skankin' Pickles' first recording and is all but impossible to find. There are 4 songs that were never released on any of their later records as well as a studio version of Burnt Head which was only released as a live recording on Skafunkrastapunk.

(Oh yeah, on this version of "I Missed the Bus" he was watching a Panasonic, not a Magnavox. It's a strange world.)

1 I Missed the Bus
2 Pseudo Punk
3 Hand Twister
4 World's Falling Down*
5 Burn't Head
6 Nuclear Dance Bomb*
7 Anxiety Attack
8 My Hair (Look Like Dahn)
9 Peter, Piper & Mary
10 Shark Teaser*
11 Whatever Happened
12 I've Had Enough*

"World's Falling Down"

I do have a live show that I'll be posting here pretty soon.

Sorry, Anonymous I don't have any of the Janitors demos and I have to admit that several years back I had a chance to get all of them for practically nothing at a shop in Riverside called "Cheap Guy" that was run by members of Voodoo Glow Skulls.
I bought a lot of other common crap instead and only recently have begun to regret not getting them when I had the chance.
