Don't No- Demo 1983 + The Real World 7"
Here is the Don't No demo and 7". Don't No was, perhaps, the only hardcore band to come from Malibu California. They formed in 1981 and then in 1983, they recorded this demo in Venice. Then in 1985, they recorded The Real World 7", which also appears here. In 1986, there was an LP called 'Incite The Riot', which I do not have, so it's not here.
This band was great, fast hardcore. A lot of the poppier element, that was popular in CA at the time, is not as abundant here as it was in other bands of the time. That does not take away from the music at all though. Overall, the 7" has a tighter sound, but that is to be expected when a band has been together for four years. That's not to say that the demo is bad either, as it has my favorite Don't No songs on it.
Also, thank you to Phil from Don't No for directing me towards the demo. I had the 7" for years but could never find anyone who had the demo and then I get a nice note telling me where I could find it! Awesome. Solid guy.
The music is here...
Here is the 7" in a seperate file, since someone said the 7" section didn't work in the other file...
The band has a website here...
