Here we have something which I've been trying to track down for months. There have been a few copies going on Ebay, but they usually went for more than I was willing to pay for them. Then I had the chance to buy from a private seller, but I find making an offer awkward, I never know how much to offer. Anyway, this copy went up on Ebay and I won it for pretty cheap.
This is the original demo tape by Australian punk outfit Kromosom. These were released on Hardcore Victim and sold out very quickly. I can see why, this demo is fantastic. I might even go as far as saying some of the songs sound better than they do on their 8 tracks LP. Lasting just over 11 minutes, this isn't the longest release in the world, but who cares about that?The artwork is pretty plain here, just the band logo. That does kinda fit with the band though; no frills, just straight to the point. That is one cool looking logo anyway.
On the inside of the insert we have the lyrics. There really aren't a lot of them in this release. But that is the beauty of Kromosom, they manage to get across so much with saying so little.
The word is these guys will be releasing a new 7" on Holy Terror records pretty soon. Be sure to keep an eye out for that one.
