Beat Magazine

Anybody remember Beat Magazine?
In the very near future, I am going to start scanning my Beat Magazines and start posting them here either as a downloadable format like the demos or post them here on the site.
I have kept a ton of issues of the magazine from when they were just a local mag and being a small magazine to the full page issues that they used to publish.
If you've only heard of it but never saw them....stay tuned here to see them once again!

Koala Red

This is the first demo from my friends band. They later changed the name of the band to Just Us and then finally to Southpaw.
What's different about this is that it is only a 2 piece band.
One member plays drums, the other keyboards. And they both sing.
They have a big Beatles, Rush and Billy Joel influence.
And the sound is incredible.
Please take the time to give this a listen. I have more demos and live shows to post from this band.

1. The Big Wheel
2. Kid's Challenge
3. Bad Blood

Please Enjoy!!!

Friday, August 10, 2007


  1. Gary
  2. Rocken Into The Future
  3. Through The Night
  4. My Song
  5. Rock & Roll Radio
  6. Call Me
  7. Never Gonna Stop

Warren Hosker - Vocals (He was with Jet Screamer)

This tape was my first introduction to the local scene. I had bought this from a friend for $2.00 back in 81. I have been listening to it ever since....

About 10 years ago at a previous job, someone at work had transferred a couple of tapes to CD for me. This one and The Tears demo which I will post later.

The only thing I know about this is that the singer is from either Jet Screamer or Scorcher (I can't remember which) and that it kicks ass!

I mentioned that I had this tape to a couple of friends and it surprised them. They remembered Gary and I guess it brought back a lot of memories to them. The CD was dedicated to Gary Howland, he was killed in a car accident. They told me who played on it but I can't recall. If someone knows, please let me know.

Take the time and listen to this. It's great music. Enjoy!!!

I have been going to shows all my life....
From local to national acts and loved seeing them all...
During that time I have collected a bunch of demo tapes from that bands I have seen to help support them and because I have enjoyed the music.
Now, because of the technology, I am starting to transfer all my tapes to MP3 and I want to share with everyone all the cool music I have grown up with....

Stay tuned to this blog for demos, live shows and more from a bunch of awesome local artists and good friends.....
