David Raven and the Escorts - S/T EP

    David Raven and the Escorts were a three piece from Vancouver, British Columbia. I'm guessing the band probably formed around 1979 or so. They released a single, a couple of EP's and a full length titled, " Stab in the Dark". Not sure if it's legit but all three guys are named David?

The First Things - Firsthingsfirst EP

 a re-post, by request, new rips and scans. Originally posted 11-24-2008, Enjoy!

   The First Things were a Champaign, Illinois four piece, around in the early 80's. This was the first of two offerings, ( that I'm aware of anyway). I'm guessing it's self released. A 12" EP titled, " A Nation of Employees", followed in 83 on Hysterical Records. Mel Eberle went on to form The Arms of Someone.
