Die Kreuzen Demos 1983

Die Kreuzen Demos 1983

Sound quality is 'A'.

Right so here's the 2nd set of demos, and the last. Early die kreuzen was brilliant. They issued some stuff on comps and the cows and beer ep, all great.

But when they issued their 1st full length lp, die kreuzen it was fuckin awesome!!!! I don't know what happened to Dan's voice, and I usually don;t go for the high pitched screechin, but man 'o motherfuckin man did that ever add an extra level of gut wrenching hardcore street youth angst, pain and perhaps most of all - frustration.

I bought the tshirt with the lp cover on it at a show, man they were amazing ...

I highly recommend seeking out the self titled issued in 1984. I own an original vinyl pressing and i had it on cassette too, but that was given to a friend when i bought October File on cd and to my wonderful surprise saw that the Self Titled album was included.

I still think to this day you can only get it on cd with October File, shame really because it deserves its own issue will all these demos and upcoming stuff I'll be posting by them.

It seems to be the "real" DIE KREUZEN demo tape released in the old good days...

Are you sure this demo tape is from 1983 ?? It's maybe 1982 ??

So, thanks, your sound quality is also great. I do have the same on CDR (Also bought to NETHERLANDS).

Thanks so much! I saw DK in 1984. I bought cows and beer before it was worth a lot of money! the first album is still my favorite hardcore lp of all time. I just heard about this demo recently so you've made me a very happy man! DK circa 81-84 was the greatest band on the planet.
