Blue Cross - Demo


Normally I don't plug new bands here as my focus is on 80's underground. But I make an exception here.
Blue Cross is one of the many side-bands of Ottowa punkband Germ Attak. Met these young punks at a gig here in Belgium and they are friendly guys.
Most of the sidebands are punk/hardcore sounding but Jo formed Blue Cross, a band with a strong early 80's goth/deathrock sound. Cool eerie guitars (flanger), tribal drums and female vocals, always a plus!
Only 3 songs but worth a listen.

And The Wizard posted a tape of another cool band of punks doing the goth thing: Bellicose Minds.

1. Everything I Despise
2. Tough Days
3. Face The Aggression

Awesome demo! Any way of getting hold of them? I'd like to play them on our radio show :)

Cool Beans!

This is exactly the sort of direction I appreciate most from the Gothic sort of sound, despite my appreciation of so many 90's Goth bands.
Been a fan of Bellicose minds a few months now, and glad to have some more sounds of them.

Michelle, Germ Attak is on tour in April in South East Asia & Japan.
They have a MySpace page, and the contact address is:
P.O. Box 53008
Ottawa, Ontario
K1N 1C5, Canada.
No email address I'm afraid.
