No Fraud (USA) demo (1985)


No Fraud coverNo Fraud tapeNo Fraud tracks(Listen!)

During the second half of the 80s ‘No Fraud’ (Venice, Florida) appeared in practically every fanzine. Singer Dan Destructo took good care of the band’s PR. He also sent me a tape to introduce themselves (interview?) and inquire if it was possible to do a European tour. That never happened… The German label Nuclear Blast recs did release a 12″ in 1989.

I assume the band’s line-up on this one was the same as on their first 7″ (The E.P.): Dan singing, Terry Huber on guitar, Jason ‘Buzz’ Cockrill on bass & Mike Shenkin hitting the drums. Described as “blazing skate-core” and compared with early ‘R.K.L.’. On the 12″ (Hard To The Core) a bit more crossover (references to ‘Impulse Manslaughter’ & ‘Stark Raving Mad’)… The band has gone through quite some changes but still exits.
