THE DEVIANTZ - S/T tape (1998)

Snotty punk rock from Surrey, BC. I found this tape last week at the bottom of a box in my storage locker. I haven't seen or heard it since at least the early 00's. I saw them play once at Club Paradise in New Westminster (a place that has changed names dozen times since), perhaps even opening for DOA? Their bass player would later play in another Surrey band, LUPUS.
1. Work No, Mohawk Yes
2. Cost Of Living
3. Citizen Steak
4. Pathetic Life
5. Sheep On Crack
6. Meaningless Shit

SINEATER - Dunce Cap & Pencil Neck EPs (1993-94)

Here's another from band Kamloops. I've seen these two 7"s in local record stores so much over the years I assumed they were from the Vancouver area. I finally bought both of them because I figured someone out there may want to hear them again. They also have a split 7" with Christie Front Drive and a demo tape that can be downloaded HERE.
1. So Simple
2. Dunce Cap
3. Seven Years

1. Pencil Neck
2. Coming Back

INNER ANGER - My Head Hurts LP (1989)

Here's yet another record I kept seeing in local shops that I finally got around to picking up. I don't really know anything about this band except they were from Kamloops and only released this one album. Crossover with melodic vocals is probably the best description I can give it. 
1. Reality
2. Life Out There
3. The Time
4. Tears And Puppeteers
5. Alice In Nowhere Land
6. Cobwebs
7. Building Borders
8. Simple Change

10. The Divorce Song
11. Great Escape

REGGIE - Broke tape (1995)

Here's one of the bands from the 'Langley Mugged' CD I posted last week. As far as I know, this demo was their only release. The version of 'Swiftly Sinking' on here is different than the one that comp so maybe there's other recordings floating around.
1. Swiftly Sinking
2. Little Bolimic Girl
3. Baby Rage
4. Feather
5. Day After
6. Waking Up
