Target of Demand - Man's Ruin - Happy Hermit Records 1984














Target of Demand hailed from Bellflower Ca and played a fast powerful brand of hardcore that is not at all typical of the early California hardcore/punk sound, but to my ears their sound is much more similar to what was going on in Boston or the Midwest.

Anyway, I looked for a copy of this record on vinyl for years and years and finally found this sucker this past weekend at a local record store...it was well worth the wait...Dave G.

One of the best 12" ever. Pre Dissenssion

Thanks for commenting Madmohawk. I am honestly tired of posting awesome records like this and having no one comment.

Gonna download it now. Dissension was cool, sure this will rock, too. I used to see a TOD 7" all over the place and never bothered to pick it up. Never heard of this 12".

Dave G said...

A TOD 7" ? I have never heard of them having a 7". I thought they only had this Lp and the tracks on the "WHEN MEN WHERE MEN AND SHEEP WHERE SCARED" LP that I posted a few months back...if there's a 7" out there...even a bootleg then I need it.

Dave G said...

I think you're right Zach. It's a different band.

Dave G said...

I have the Dissension Lp also. I'll probably post it in the future.

Thanks for posting this fantastic record. I've had my copy since 1988, and it's always been one of my favorites. Keep up the great work!

Thanks Rusty, I came late to this record. I had in mp3 format for a few years and just recently found my vinyl copy.
