DOUBLE O: "DC ON THE MAP" 1982 DEMO
Today's post concerns the "DC On the Map" 1982 demo. This has been previously bootlegged in 1993 under the title of "Double Barreled" as a double 7". This bootleg double 7" comprised tracks from the band's three demos.
This demo shows the growth of the band between their demo and debut EP on Dischord/R&B. This demo showcases the band with a much more aggressive sound than their more sophisticated debut record. These tracks are more akin to Youth Brigade and perhaps Red C. This seems logical considering that Double O boasted ex members of both groups. The sound quality of this demo is somewhat noisy but is still quite enjoyable to listen to. This is pretty much a must for any early Dischord enthusiast.
