Brave New World - Initiation MLP


This one is for the more adventurous among us. Not your typical punk/HC record here.
The singer reminds me of John Lydon from time to time as well as Jello Biafra. A lot of diversity on this record. They even use keyboards on 'Sitcom'.
'Initiation' was the band's 1st vinyl release in 1984. Seems there's a tape released before this one according to KFTH.
Brave New World released all their records on their own Homemade Records label but Fartblossom Enterprizes helped distributing.
After 'Initiation' came a 3 track 7" and the 'Noise From The Heart' LP on which they move further from their punk roots.
If you want, you can check the other 2 records of Brave New World on my other blog:

A scan of the booklet with lyrics is also included in the file.

2. 3 Days After Liberation

FUCK YES!!!!!
The title track has been one of my main jams for many years. Every time I put in on around other folks - without fail - someone digs it and wants to hear more. I've been meaning to digitize this for ages but I'm so wrapped up in ripping tapes that I keep not getting around to it. The EP rules as well, but this tape is all new to me man. Thanks loads for all this shit, so fucking stoked!

Wizard, I don't mind you ripping tapes. It's what interests me most these days as demos are way harder to find. So keep up the good work.
Hey Bernardo, hope everything's OK with you. It's been a while. And what the hell are dongles?

I hate to keep bothering you with re-up requests but could you re-up these Brave New World records as well as the 'Poptonto - Time To Think LP'?
