For anyone interested, here's the story on STRIPPER:

 

Stripper didn't get much love in the local press. They were considered amateur-ish.

The local ROX magazine had a review of their live show and said they were terrible and hadn't gotten any better after several years playing out.

Fun Fact: They were originally called VALENTINE. But some other band with a guy named HUGO had that name and had just been signed to a record deal for their debut album.

Baltimore's Valentine then changed their spelling to Valentyne. They ditched the named and then became DIVINE MADNESS before settling on the name STRIPPER.

Their singer Sean Cip and guitarist Kenny Stoned both moved to San Francisco in the early 90's and released a bunch of discs with their new band SPARROWS POINT. (Sparrow's Point is a locale in Maryland).

Dagger stuff I received was the "Dream Stealer" cassette songs on a CDR (6 tracks), a rare live Dagger show from 1991 at HammerJacks, a CDR of a band called Unannounced, and a CD in shrinkwap of a band called High Bridge.

Russ....I've said it before.....You really need to give serious thought to writing a reference book or doing something to convey all this great knowledge of the Baltimore hard rock scene in the late 80s - early 90's. You've accumulated a vast amount of material and knowledge that should be invaluable to other collectors!! You do a great job and I have followed this thread almost since it was started, just absorbing all of this. As you know, I am heavy into demo tapes and love discovering new bands all the time like this. Keep up the good work man!

Hey Delbert,

 

That "Grounded For Life" that you have is completely incorrect. Only the song "Nightmares" is on "Grounded For Life".

 

Don't know where you got got that from but it is totally bogus. All of them songs came from my uploads of "The Art Of Seduction". Hope you didn't pay for it.
