City Indians - Root Of Freedom Tape

2nd demo tape of Derby anarchopunk band City Indians.
City Indians played a lot with Conflict back in the day.
Their 1st demo 'Spoilsport' was released in 1986. 'Root Of Freedom' was released in 1987 and has an extra live side which contains a few older songs like 'Spoilsport' and 'Apartheid'. This demo shows a more melodic side of the band.
City Indians would go to release a quite poppy 7" in 1988 called 'Nicholas Parsons Is Feathery Galosh'.
Andy Sewell drummed for this band (not on the 7") and would join Concrete Sox later on. One of the coolest people I met back in the day, and me and some friends visited him in Derby a few times. Don't know what he's doing these days but he ran the Victoria Inn for some years.

Creep Insanity - Destroying The Insane Demo

Creep Insanity were from Eeklo, Belgium. They were around in the late 80's and played crossover, a style that was popular back then. They were HC punx playing metal. There are some interview snippets in between the songs and they state that they didn't like the common macho attitude of the heavy metal dudes.
Creep Insanity were a 3-piece: Rabbit on drums who did a lot for the HC scene back then, Bassie who played bass and was rarely seen sober :) and Peter on guitar and vocals (who is an amazing guitarplayer btw.). Later on Kris of Hate Crew joined on vocals.
After they split up, Bassie played in the short-lived Braindead, with Stinky (No Numbers, Repulsives) on drums.
Ripped this demo from a cheap, shitty, German cassette brand called Standard. There are a few sound drops unfortunately. Don't have a sleeve as well but found an old sticker so I scanned that one. Don't know when they recorded it as well. Boosted the sound a little bit.

Check Smurfpunx for pictures of the band.
