White Noise - Dead and Alive (1983)



We never really expected to get our hands on this tape, so when we found it on a Brazilian blog this weekend, we thought we were hallucinating. After a cold shower and a download, we're pretty sure we're not.

If you're not clued in, White Noise is Ron Hadley, Jamie Kenney and friends pre-Beyond Possession. The liner notes to their Repossessed compilation CD tell us that the band had to change their name because of "legal problems," but it appears the band was quite active under their original name. These 15 tracks here allegedly pre-date the first Beyond Possession 7-inch, and we note that there are a few tracks on here which also show up on later BP releases (re-recorded, 'natch). This is pretty great stuff. It makes us wish we weren't so crap at skateboarding.

Grab it here, then grab your board and head to Millennium Park. If you see us there, can you call an ambulance for us?

Would it be possible to get a re-up of Bryan Went Down To Reno? (http://calgarycassettes.blogspot.com/2009/05/everymen-bryan-went-down-to-reno-1998.html) The link has died.

Actually, just about every older Rapidshare post that I came across was dead. Not sure how much you care about that, but there you go.

Yes, we realize most of the RapidShare links are dead. We're trying to clean them up, but please let us know any that you find - we'll get that Everymen one fixed tonight.
