been a bit of a nostalgia trip going on over at the columbus sucks message board, old columbus flyers are the topic of one of the most popular threads right now and there are some pretty good ones being posted. lots of old legion of doom flyers, as well as flyers for shows at addition 13, fire exit, and elsewhere. the lot of which corresponded with a few cassette rips i'd recently done of a bunch of demos i've been wanting to listen to, and as your luck would have it, posted here for your listening pleasure as well.
first up, we have the xAND WE REMAINx demo. straightedge youth crew thrash-core featuring past/future/present members of killed in action, dismal, reflect, the ordeal, the dead hate the living, severe, etc. i think they were still all straightedge at this point. which still remain? haha.

it's too late (again)
practice makes you an asshole
#11...i forgot the title
kill your neighborhood drug dealer
the tunnels of cu chi
this city's ours
all that street cred and you're still a loser
next up is the intense justice tape. this band would prove to be the precursor to the styling (and featuring future members) of the infamous columbus power violence cartel, weed steeler.
last, but certainly not least, we have the almighty deathly fighter demo. maybe even better than 9 shocks terror, this japanese hardcore-influenced band pulled out all the stops, and with surgical precision. GISM were given their due run for the money. deathly fighter are kind of still a band, mostly in name only, but are totally different and do not sound like this anymore. christian who provided vocals for this outfit, currently carries the banner with his latest abomination to humanity, vile gash.
