Airlines- September 1990 three-song demo

19 Aug

Airlines, from Hoboken, New Jersey, handed me this cassette after they had already released two 7″ single on Susstones, and had played some dates in the Midwest during a hot August of 1989.  I have some other tapes of Airlines from that summer (notably live on WFMU, where the 7″ single “Test” was #1), they are entertaining in regards to between-song banter, especially from drummer Jim DeRogatis. A couple of the tracks from this tape were re-recorded & made it to the band’s eponymous CD that was released a couple years later, “Clockwork” is unreleased. Thanks to John Tanzer for giving me permission to put these here, and thanks to bassist John Neilson for turning me onto CAN that summer.
