The Attic Classic:PLAID got a lot of attention, almost right away, with a self-released cassette demo in 1990. It set the stage for their sound, high speed punk rock with a bit of thrash and metal thrown in, with heavy guitar riffs and thundering drums.
The four songs on that PLAID demo were written by the band, led by Duane Beer on guitar & vocals, with guitarist Mike O’Keefe, Dave Heaton on bass, and Bill Ketzer pounding the skins.
Two of the songs from the demo made it to their next release, 1991’s ‘Dead To The World’ which came out on Jim Furlong’s label imprint Blue Lunch Records. It also marked a line-up change with Matt Davis replacing O’Keefe on guitar. The disc’s production smoothed out some of the band’s raw edges, adding a bit of horror rock and – dare I say it? – pop musical styles to the mix.
The Attic Classic is from PLAID‘s debut full-length disc, in fact it’s the title track – “Dead To The World.”
