bad brains
1979-1983
collected demos and studio outtakes

lineage [all] - studio->?gen cassette->wav->sound forge 4.5 [noise reduction, normalization]->cd wave [splits]->flac

min:sec - 45:06

filesize: 269 mb

notes: culled from various cassettes received in trade 1989-1991. i hadn't seen "rough mixes and outtakes" or "83 demo"
before, and haven't seen them since. quality varies widely from very listenable 8.5 [tracks 4 through 10] to damn lo-fi
[tracks 20 and 21]. i've cut those tracks from the roir rough mixes and outtakes that do not significantly differ from
their release versions. speaking of, the rough mixes and outtakes are subject to their own special kind of degradation
which can actually be overlooked in light of the "unearthed" nature of the recording. kind of like riding a carousel.
i have no idea who's singing on track 20. "80 demo" is constructed from the best of two slightly differing sources. in
all cases, generational loss has some degree of impact upon the recording, and some hiss remains after noise reduction.

tracks [chronoligical, to the best of my knowledge]:

#01.dont need it
#02.blackjack
%03.dont bother me
&04.dont need it
&05.?
&06.pay to cum
&07.supertouch
&08.regulator
&09.?
&10.dont bother me [cut]
*11.sailin' on
*12.attitude
*13.right brigade
*14.big take over
*15.jah calling
*16.blackjack
*17.?
*18.redbone in the city
*19.?
*20.?
+21.at the movies
+22.we will not

# = "1979 demo"
% = "1980 demo," source 2
& = "1980 demo," source 1
* = "roir rough mixes and outtakes"
+ = "1983 demo"

Sick! Do you have any I Against I-era demos? I have a version of Re-ignition from a 1984 demo that I got from a blog, might you have the tracks from those sessions?

I think that Re-ignition version comes from a 7" bootleg called "Soul Music For Bad People". It's the only song on there from the I Against I era.


"Soul Music for Bad People" bootleg 7-inch

(7:56)

How Low Can a Punk Get
You
Re-ignition

Tracks 1-2 recorded somewhere in California sometime in 1982.
Track 3 recorded somewhere in NYC sometime in 1985.
