So after the original SUPPRESSION broke up I moved here to Richmond, VA and shortly thereafter some friends and I formed The Irreversible Neural Damage (after performing one strange sound/ performance art set as Suppression opening for MELT BANANA). The line-up was Harvey Riptide a.k.a myself on bass, vox; Mr. Shasta a.k.a. Adam Juresko (STOP IT!, KOJAK) on drums, spoken word; and Johnny Condor a.k.a. Adam Hudson (MONOLITH ZERO) on vox and interpretive dance. It really isn't too dissimilar from the stuff I was doing in Suppression actually. We recorded this at a place called Nothing But Noise. We had some grand ideas for this project, like incorporating bizarre performance art/ weird comedy with our shows, a comic book, more touring, etc. but after recording this demo, a couple of Richmond shows, and a week long tour with JALOPAZ we called it quits. Interesting footnote: we stupidly left the back door of the station wagon we toured in unlocked when we got home from the tour and only Jalopaz's equipment was stolen, thus ruining his "noise" career. We're still sorry Alex!!!
Alright, hope you guys dig this one. The last 2 tracks are my personal favorites. Thank you Chris Conrad for digitizing this from the master tape!!!
1. Intro/ Your Time Is Urine/ Square One
2. Clubbed Into Dank Submission/ Disrupting Your Equilibrium
3. Miss America
4. Marketing skit

The Yes Sirs were (and could possibly be again) Adam Perry (P.C.P. ROADBLOCK, ENEMY SOIL, and currently FARTICUS) on stand-up drum kit and Jason Hodges (me) on vocals and drum sounds from cheap keyboards/ samplers through effects pedals. They formed in 2003 and performed whenever their main projects couldn't play certain shows. After doing a hand full of improv sets they actually started writing "songs," this demo featured their earliest recordings ( I left off the boom-box recorded versions of some of these because the studio versions are far superior). Enjoy!!!
1. New Anthem
2. I Was Drug Tested
3. Fleas Or Radioactive Pop Smear
5. Original Anthem
6. Hitler's Ball
Still available on C.N.P. is their, even better, brutal and exotic LP "Dos Locos," half of this was done through the mail after Adam moved to San Francisco. Red vinyl/ screen printed covers. Get it HERE.

This line-up of Kojak was very short-lived, luckily we managed to record this incarnation and release this, the second C.N.P. Records release. The line-up features Adam Juresko (who went on to do STOP IT! and became an accomplished visual artist), Jason Hodges (BERMUDA TRIANGLES, AMOEBA MEN, and SUPPRESSION), and Barry Cover (IMMORTAL AVENGER and AMOEBA MEN). Sounds like we were listening to a lot of Drive Like Jehu around this time but you can also hear some remnants of our hardcore years which are especially apparent in the vocals. Live like it's 1999 all over again...
1. Kill Your Inner Leech
2. Spackle-Faced Jerk
3. Spiritual Enema
4. I'm The Fly In Your Soup
5. Dolemite Stance
6. Crash Motherfucker
7. Ted Danson's Hairpiece
8. Trust Your Avon Lady
9. Your Moustache Equals Dominance
10. Mr. D.N.A. (DEVO cover)
