THE FITS / PURE PRESSURE - Demos.
Someone requested a re-up for the PURE PRESSURE demo, so here it is, as a bit of a bonus I've included a 1985 demo from THE FITS here, which sounds like Slaughter and The Dogs meeting The Cult and was a pointer towards the musical direction Pure Pressure took. The text below is from the original post:
The Fits came from Blackpool, and were a slight cut above the rest of the 1980’s Punk bands; with their Rock’n’Roll tinged Punk rock tunes; less thrash more trash! Sadly they split up around 1985 amongst a mess of eyeliner and violence. Singer Mickey Fits had taken to wearing make up on stage, as a reaction to the violence that often marred Punk gigs during the 80’s. Fortunetly this wasn’t the last to be heard of Mickey, who went on to form Pure Pressure, along with a couple more members of The Fits, their sound veered to the more rocky side of things, coming across like a slightly less heavy Zodiac Mindwarp or The Cult, while still maintaining a punk rock sensibility. Good stuff! Give it a blast
