Hirax band 1984

Hirax

This stuff goes way, WAY back to 1984 but it’s from a very fun chapter in life.  Despite the questionable quality of the audio since the songs were pulled from a 25 years old cassette tape, the music still makes me smile.

The following 4 tracks are from a cassette demo that we released in 1984.  This cassette “went viral” in the underground tape trading scene in Europe.

Born in the Streets

Battle Cry

Stand and be Counted

Believe in the King

The following is the original cassette sleeve.

And for a little extra added fun, someone overseas sent me songs from yet another cassette that made it to the European underground tape trading scene.  These are from a 1983 rehearsal.  I have no idea how this stuff got out there, I don’t even have copies!

These tapes really make me realize how much I grew as a player in the coming years.

Born in the Streets

Law and Order

Believe in the King

Runnin’

Y.B.D.
