Forbidden Dimension - Our Martian Heritage (1992)

Forbidden Dimension started out in 1988, just as Jackson Phibes's (aka Aleister Hexxx) previous combo, Color Me Psycho, was calling it quits. It was initially conceived as a one-man one-off project, sonically in the Chrome/Metal Urbain/Roky Erickson/60s punk/proto-metal mode. - CBCRadio3

To my ears, this cassette sounds better than FD's first CD release, Sin Gallery. Must be the undead drum machine.

Track listing:
1. Vulture Feed
2. Dreamdate
3. All Black and Hairy
4. Wild Doll
5. Cold Hands, Cold Heart
6. Atomic Canibal
7. Martian Death Saucer
8. Dial M for Monster
9. Dig That Crazy Grave
10. Shrunken Heads
11. White Line Reaper
12. Hand of Glory

Huevos Rancheros - Huevosaurus (1990)

Stripping rock’n’roll to its most basic frame, Richie, Brent and original bassist Graham emerged from the garage in 1990 — you guessed it — without a singer — and immediately put out its first product, a 6-song cassette. - CBC Radio 3

Track listing:
1. Huevosaurus
2. Blonde Girl In a Blue Volare
3. Latin Ranch
4. I'm Branded
5. Mindsurfer
6. Mystery Mtn (sic)

Huevos Rancheros were:
Brent J. Cooper - guitar
Graham Evans - bass
Richie Lazarowich - drums, percussion

What a strange little fire. It's almost like Hallowe'en.
