Well, here it is, the ultimate X-mas present for people who want to damage their mental facilities with loud, trashy, poorly recorded music. Alona Dream Records (in Chicago) is in the process of releasing a CD and vinyl record (different colors available) of Negative Element. I, myself, am not much of a fan of hardcore punk, but I did play drums in this proto-hardcore band from 1980 thru 1983. We were on a label, Version Sound Records, and did do some touring at the time -- in 1980 I was only thirteen and the singer was only twelve. The recording for this new release was provided by Jay Younger of White Zombie -- he found our first demo tape in an box containing hundreds of other tape recordings from that era. I wouldn't say Jay and I are friends, but we do know each other. He's friends with the other members of Negative Element. If you know any collectors of this type of music, please send them this link. (Alona Dream Records also releases other types of music from relatively unknown bands or performers. This is to say that I and the other band members are not receiving royalties from these records, and I'm only passing this on because Alona Dream Records does cool stuff.) ... -1982-1983

For something more Holidayish, you can hear my nine finger rendition of the Peanuts theme song, and see my boys being very "Peanuts-like". Cherry Holidays from across the pond, Keith [youtube][/youtube]

Sorry, haven't had time to check this out yet. Do they have any vids on youtube. I tend to get lost in youtube land listening to music or watching movies and other things.
