I think it was the summer of 1994 when I caught this girl, Sari, who was on tour with Kid Dynamo in South Dakota. After the show I picked up the demo which ended up being fucking fantastic. A few years later I was making the trip from Minneapolis to Olympia and I busted out this cassette and to my amazement, my friend had also seen her, but in Minneapolis. Very random. Anyway, it’s a great demo, and I don’t think she ever released anything else which is a serious shame.

  1. Dude…nice effing blog!

    I just spent the last 2 hours going over every last post…I got forwarded here from Hype Machine for an old air miami track i suddenly felt the urge to hear, and..

    Look-out!, a treasure trove of goodies! Vintage Shoegaze! Old Hardcore! Retro!

    Rare Medicine? Vintage live JAMC? Cure Demos? You’ve got to be kidding me!

    I sent you a friend request on Myspace, hope you got it…I’ve got a list of mp3’s and such…we should trade!

    Anyways, thanks for a great time…


  2. I didn’t even know Sari made a demo. I still have a cool old Miller’s Oil Co. work shirt of hers that I picked up from a friends stoop sale.
    Cool site.

  3. was the song “in the hands of a saint” on this cassette by chance? one of my favourite songs on a teenage mixtape is that song by “sari bacilla”, is it the same sari by chance?

  4. This is such a great song, i know this was an age ago but is there any way you can be encouraged to digitalise the rest of the demo

  5. Sending this to Sari, she can answer your questions– but she’s still playing in bands for sure, so there are releases out there…
