Bent Peg "Vuja De: That Incredible Sense of Never Having Been There Before" - 1996 CD

The ever quirky Bent Peg were a huge part of the local music scene in the Cortland / Ithaca area in the mid-90's. Hard to quite describe their sound, bits of Faith No More and maybe The Offspring, Punk, Rock, Oddness. Super energetic live. After a few demos, they went into Penguin Studios in Syracuse and recorded this masterpiece. They had it mastered at Pyramid Sound Studios by Alex Perialis and Jason Arnold, and it still sounds great almost 20 years later. I do have some, if not all, of the demos, which I will get up sooner or later, as well as some live videos. Matt Barnes, the frontman of the band, is currently in Genitor, as well as a host of other bands.

Lethargy - Live April 12, 1995 at Vertex

Here is some cleaned and mastered live video from Lethargy. From Rochester, NY, Brann Dailor went on to drum for Mastodon, and Eric Burke is in a million bands and projects, including Sulaco, Nuclear Assault, and Brutal Truth. Lethargy was always one of my favorite bands to see live, and I did so as much as possible. I did not record this, and thanks to Chris Dalcin for the recording. I plan on uploading the other two bands from this show, Windbreed and Pigmaster, soon...

The Vimeo page is here; and you can download the MP4 from there if you want.

M.T. Web - 1994 Demo

So M.T. Web hailed from Seneca Falls, NY, and featured the same vocalist as Saint Chaos and Groovy Seeds. I do believe this was a solo project, and honestly, I know little about it. It does have a cool Robin Trower cover of Bridge of Sighs on it. It's worth checking out, it's a bit more mid-tempo than his other bands, but still quite good.

Milk Toast 1989 Demo

So these guys were from Cortland, NY. At least one of the members went on to the band Creeper (whose demos I plan on uploading at some point), who then got signed to Roadrunner Records as Shank 456 (due to some lawsuits over the name Creeper). Anyways, Milk Toast were rather cool, as you can hear from this demo. This needed a lot of work to master it up to a more listenable form. The standout track, would definitely have to be, Ball of Hate. Enjoy...

DIRTUNDERgOD "deus ex machina" 1994 Demo

DIRTUNDERgOD were all Ithaca College students, I do believe. This was the only thing they released. S second EP was recorded as a three-piece. (vocalist tait was asked to leave about six months after this EP and the bassist took over vocal duties), much heavier sounding and massively better production, but it was never released. They broke up after graduating. The vocalist Tait Halverson may have been local as afterwards he recorded a solo demo that was much more mellow than this. However, this is a great sounding release (only needed some minor mastering) with some really catchy songs. Very much electronic Hard Rock, as was popular back when this came out, the best of the four would have to be Give and Stick Figure Man. All four are pretty cool, though. If anyone has a copy of the unreleased second EP, please get in touch!
