I just barely heard the 4 track demo from the American band(how many are there) named Fire? I was instantly smashed by the lead off track, Never Run, the 3 other tracks following it fucking kicked ass, my big question is how did this band never land a mother fucking deal? based on this demo alone, who would've put this demo on, at any label, and finished listening to all 4 tracks before having the band on the phone to come sign the papers, It really just blows my mind, of all the shit out in 1987, this track alone still holds up, I'm just glad I finally discovered it, and really wonder what was missed as a result of them never being signed? bothers me, anyways, im sure everyone already knows this album, but if not, if your slow like me, heres the song that I would've signed them with, plus I would've had them re-record all 4 of those songs, they are all top tier shit.

That's great stuff mate. Thanks for sharing. I, for one was certainly not aware of this. I'll be sourcing that EP immediately! Jackie Ramos from "Bangalore Choir", "Hericane Alice", etc involved also. Nice discovery.

I recall stumbling across and downloading the Fire demo years ago, really cool 4 track set and a long lost gem.  That track 'Never Run' is my fave of their songs.  I think I had originally heard that tune on one of those unsigned L.A. band compilations back in the day.  Not sure of all the details but from what I recall reading, Michael Guy and Tom Rucci had left Shark Island.  And the lead singer had been in bands in New York area before moving to L.A. Michael Wagener was involved with recording of the demo.  And the band shopped it around to the labels, but unfortunately never landed a deal and split not long after.

Yeah, this is really good stuff. I found another two tracks on youtube, but I can't find "Lonely Street". What a waste.

LOL, I'm late as usual, yeah this is pretty fucking awful, sounds like they cant tell if they want to be Blondie or the motels, so maybe after not getting signed, she just gave up on the hair rock thing and went a different direction? Just glad for the 4 completely fucking awesome songs that have been out there since I was in 2nd fucking grade, and I never knew, without the internet I might never have heard what is now one of my go to songs, Never Run.

Even though it good enough, 1987 was so flooded with bands like this I am sure the pompous A&R pricks paid no mind to a female fronted band as that too was not kool. And who knows she could have suffered from LSD (lead singers disease) and burnt their bridges before they were built.
