Bored Stiff - 1992

I've had this CD for a long time, I know I got it in a tape trade back in the day, I think I know who I got it from but I'm not 100% sure so I don't want to thank anyone in case I get it wrong. I do appreciate this CD, especially since I don't think it was part of my trade list and the person added it in extra for me. I've listened to this album over the years and didn't really know much about it. I'd never heard it mentioned anywhere and I was pretty sure it was either wrongly titled or someones personal compilation. I didn't care either way because it was good music from Bored Stiff and I hadn't heard some of the tracks before. In 2009 I downloaded a Bored Stiff album called Fucked Up Tape and it was the same thing as my 1992 CD. Years went by, I forgot about both albums, mainly because Bored Stiff was dropping new albums.

Fast forward to 3 months ago, I'm going through some albums, looking for something for the site and I find this CD. I asked a few people if they knew anything about it, but no one had any solid info about it. I reached out to TD Camp from Bored Stiff and he took the time to hit me off with a tracklist and some info on the music.

"A few of these were lost and haven't been heard by us in a long time (5,6,7)... THANKS. I have most of the other stuff as a lot better recordings. Most of this stuff was recorded in '92 & '93 at the loft me and Julz had near Balboa Bart station and also at MIC's apt of JoJo & Mints apt (both on Haight and Fillmore). Most of the beats were made by me with my Casio FZ-10M and then I'd record the vocals on my 4-track or they would take the beat tapes to MIC's of JoJp & Mint's to record with a 2 track (karaoke machine)." - TD Camp

I'd like to thank TD Camp for the info, and the person who sent me the album. I did my best to clean up the sound but it still sounds like a 3rd or 4th generation dub......which I'm cool with.

  5. Erray... I didn't know you posted this. I'm glad folks enjoy our old rough drafts and underground stuff. I have around 100 tapes of my beats and Bored Stiff songs from the 90's. We used make music day and night.

  6. Damn 100 tapes of old music is amazing. I think I can safely speak for everyone when I say we would love to hear some of this music.
