One time I ordered the Ettil Vrye/Tipping Canoe split lp, and the guy with the stash, Pete from Ettil Vrye, also threw in the demo tape of his new band, Sinaloa. I was excited to hear the new band, since that Ettil Vrye stuff was, in my opinion, the best new hardcore I’d heard in a good many months. But, I don’t know, this demo didn’t get a lot of plays on my tape deck. It didn’t quite compare. However, it’s a demo! They’ve put out a lot since, and people are into them. Plus I think it falls in line with the tapes I’ve recently posted – kind of the same time period and similar sound and feel. Three of the songs from this demo were later re-recorded and put on the Fathers and Sons album. And Hardcore for Nerds recently posted the Sinaloa split with Ampere.
So here you go. I guessed this as being from 2002 (I’m starting to recognize that it’s not that I’m lazy, but that I am developing a fear of googling things – I think I’m afraid of what I may find, even when such fears are ridiculous.. that’s why I guess so much, and then just wait to be corrected in the comments.).
I am going out of town for a few days, but will be back next week with some more posts.
