"Donna's Bible"

Uh, oh! You either don't have the Flash plug-in installed, or you have it disabled.
Otherwise, there'd be a cute lil' streaming audio player on the left, rather than this message.

The Eight Hundred Dollar Demo
(not released, 1994)

Slish were led by vocalist and, I assume, bassist ('cause that's his main thing) Michael W. Dean. Unfortunately, I guess they got a publishing deal with Warner Brothers but nothing came of it release-wise, and that's a shame. Today's selection rocks hard, and is my fave of the five tunes they recorded.

Prior to Slish, Michael led the SF punk-postpunk-metal combo Bomb, who released a buncha albums on Boner Records then made the jump to Warner Brothers for their album Hate Fed Love. Prior to that, he was a member of Baby Opaque and The Beef People, both of whom released records on my tiny record label back in the mid-1980s.

I asked Michael's permission to post this, since it was never actually released; he sent me the tape when they recorded it, and it was subsequently played many a time in the ol' car stereo. He granted said permission and also asked that I include this link to every song he's ever recorded. These days, in addition to being a musician, he's now an author, filmmaker, and podcaster. I'm not sure if he sleeps or not.
