Demo Feature 
Tonight’s demo feature is a band called DEEP END who were being treated as something special in the Toronto hardcore scene because they featured members of Degenerate Youth who were a great band out of Mimico and Al Nolan who loved the Descendents and was trying to make a band like that. After Deep End’s demise Al and Mark would start TRIGGER HAPPY. But we are going to hear Deep End’s first release which was a cassette called “Suck”. “Suck” came out on a fledgling new label called Epidemic. This was not a demo but it was a cassette which qualifies it for our demo feature so we are playing it tonight.

On tonight's EXD, we start out with a celebration of life for Dave Robert’s life. More affectionately known as Tank, his friends Zero and Mongo share stories and Gary Topp shares some live Ramones for his soundtrack. We also talk to Fran Grasso and Dave Busch about a new book on Toronto’s underground metal scene titled “Eve of Darkness”. Chris showcases some of the newest Japanese punk releases. There is a covers set to gear you up for the special fundraising show. And Desperate Times gets featured for their second time in the demo segment. Download the show here.

STUPIDS - People In Your Neighbourhood (Children of the Revolution / Toxic Shock / Boss Tuneage)

Tribute to Dave Roberts 
Many people knew Dave Roberts as "Tank". He worked security for the Garys in the early days, of the Toronto punk scene. But he would go on to do so much more. Mongo and Zero share stories about Dave Roberts on tonight's show including things that you may not have realized about this gentle giant. Their stories blew me away.

The book Eve of Darkness just came out detailing the underground metal scene in Toronto that started in the 80's. We speak with Fran Grasso and Dave Busch who were involved in the book. Fran has been involved in every stage of this book from setting up interviews to transcribing to scanning photos and flyers to intial edits to final edits and the hands on production. And she started a label called Urbain Grandier to follow up the work on this project. I heard Dave was a photographer but he only spoke about his experience stemming as a fan of the metal scene and helped out with figuring out the story lines in this book. And Dave connected us with Ray Berkis who we owe big time for his audio conversions.
