The Sextants: 1987 demo

Back in the day when A.O.S. was working to dominate the local college music scene in our little corner of the American Southwest, our main rivals in town, along with The Young Pros, were a group of  upstarts called The Sextants. I just ran across this track of theirs from 1987 on soundcloud, so I thought I'd share it with ya'll. 

And to facilitate the head to head comparisons and a nostalgia overload - here's The Young Pros (doing a cover of an A.O.S. song)

and A.O.S.'s DIY cassette release from 1988- Rip It Up - Enjoy

Pre-Jonny Cats: The Drones

Dave Chavez (RIP), the solid and heavy anchor for The Jonny Cats was in The Drones in the late 1980's. Here is a video slideshow of one of their tunes. There will be a memorial concert for Dave in Las Cruces next month at Hurricane Alley on the 17th.

PKD soundtracks...Valis, Leverage

Was recently contacted by Aaron Sheppard, a guitarist and fellow PKD fan. He had some nice things to say about the psychic enemies network album valis. Listening to his album Leverage, I thought readers here might appreciate his work, so I thought I would pass it along. Makes a nice contrast/companion to valis
