This is not the same sounding Discharge that we all know and love. Technically it’s the same band, but it sounds completely different. As the title states, this LP is their early demo recordings from March – June, 1977. This is not the raging D-beat hardcore that we’re all accustomed to. The punk on this record is straight up ’77 style that it’s very much a product of its time. The music is extremely basic, very simple, very primitive, and completely just attitude. It doesn’t have the political, anti-war outrage at this point, instead we have songs with titles like I Don’t Care, Acne, I love Dead Babies, and Sweet Suburban Dreams. And if the lyrical content wasn’t enough to convince you that this is actually a lost Sex Pistols demo, then the vocal style, which sounds strikingly similar to Johnny Rotten might. There is no list of members who played on these demos, so I have no idea how many of the members went on to be in the later incarnations of Discharge. The whole record screams of the early days of young, snotty, pissed off punks filled with teen angst. If you’re a Discharge completist, want to see the very start of this hugely influential band, or if your really into raw, primal ’77 punk sound you should check this out. A cool document from the very beginning of what was to become a legendary influential group
