I'm sure everyone here other then me has already heard these, not me, I just barely discovered, thanx 2 my step dad, but where have these guys been all my life, wow this band has an entirely different sound to them, HUGE choruses, and Sponges vocalist Vinnie Dombrowski at 16 years of age playing drums, this band would go onto be an ultra early version of Sponge, of course they completely changed, and Vinnie is a much different singer then this dude, and I dont know why but it wont play these, oh well, if you havent heard them, just follow my Youtube channel and they work perfectly on there??? IDK

And this was a 4 track demo from Neil Turbins band Bad Applz, this song is way cool

You're not the only one man. I just heard this for the first time,I'm blown away!!! Especially by Bradford youth gang. It's catchy as fuck!!!! When was this originally recorded/released? 

1987, yeah bro I saw that Vinnie played drums on it when he was 16, Im a huge Sponge fan, bro I heard it and put 2 songs on repeat all morning, the 2 on here, they have a different sound I think, I assume their from Detroit, as thats were Sponge is from, but my step dad had the cassette, he has all the cassettes, lol, i thought the band name sounded kinda gay, so I was leery, but bro, Im so glad I listened to it, it's fucking killer.

Yeah, love the"Bad Applz" track. Just downloaded the EP from youtube. Thanks for the tip mate. No full release? 

"Bradford Youth" is okay. I've never heard of "Sponge" before. I'll have to check them out.

I bet they got their name from "Seinfeld".

BTW, your Step Dad sounds like a cool guy.

Sponge may not be your cup of tea bro, they were pretty well known, songs Plowed and my fav Wax Ecstatic, but they are very post alt, maybe even post grunge, kind of like STP before they got all weird, I always said Vinnie to me sounds like what Neil Diamond would sound like if he sang Hard Rock, they are Howard Sterns favorite band, and my step dad is a chingone, he has been a session musician for 45 years, he is also the conductor of the Utah State Symphony, has a masters in Orchestra arrangement and some sort of weird theory, and he's a meteorologist on the local news, I am 2 and 2/3 of a quarter the man he is, he is an actual student of music, and he believes Orchestra and Jazz are the most sophisticated forms of music known, and he absolutely loves AOR, mainly Hi-Tech, he says it just sounds like radio pop, but those mid 80s bands play some actually difficult and progressive songs, there is sophistication in what Toto plays, he's who hipped me to all the hi-tech I listen to, Fee Waybill - Read My Lips, the tubes, Hunter, and his fav Lava, he's got shit you don't even believe they really made it's so ultra low budget, and Ive learned I'm a fool not to listen to everything on the same level, I would've missed out on some gems, anyways here's these. If they work.

This was an unreleased B-Side, that use to be impossible to find, just so happens to be my favorite Sponge song, I believe it was used in the background of whatever the movie is that they have patched together for the video, it was never released outside of the B-Side to Molly, obviously a video was never produced for a song that was never really released, but if u know the 1st album Rotting Pinata, this song has to be from those sessions, and cannot figure why It was never included, it's called Cowboy Eyes.

And here are a couple of their popular songs, they had a bunch, but I like these, after the 1st 3 albums, they really went in a more weird Alt-Pop-direction, the Cross brothers left after the 3rd album and showed clearly wear the unique Sponge sound came from, as the albums after the 3rd(which was intentionally a pop album called New Pop Sunday) all fucking blow,

 

 

This song is absolute mayhem on the system in my Jeep, I def crank this one up.

Great, fucking Firefox man, so guys, yeah I decided those 2 songs off that Bradford Youth album, stand so far and above anything else on that album, it's almost not even worth wasting your time, just listen to these 2, I dont get how those songs are so blatantly over produced, over written, almost designed to a certain sound, and just completely over the fucking top, I mean come on, those are the definition of "Gang Vocals" if I ever heard them, almost sounds like a legit choir, but those 2 songs just sound so well thought out, and crafted, the rest of the album sounds like whoever wrote those other 2 either cost to much for the whole thing, or they split after the 2, I mean no shit, the quality of the songs on the album, are just fucking garbage, they try to be like southern tinged kind of blues rock like IDK, maybe like Molly Hatchet type style, the 1st song sounds like a note for note rip off of Cat Scratch Fever, but then I think these guys fare from Detroit, maybe it's intentional? IDK, theres really no info anywhere about this band, outside of they changed members and became Spys4Darwin, which is interestingly enough, kind of a supergroup featuring Vinnie Dobrowski, Ozzy and Alice in Chains bassist Mike Inez, Alice In Chains founding member, Drummer Sean Kinney, and of course we all know Chris DeGarmo of that one band that I cant qujit place, but I do know theres 2 versions of that band, LOL,

Heres a new song I found, well an old new song I shouldve heard before but for whatever reason, never did, I fucking really really like these next 2 songs, if your into Hi-Tech shit you probably enjoy them as well.

Sorry but Sponge was horrible.

Did you not read what I prefaced it with?? certainly not a band I thought anybody on here would like, it was a sub add to the og point, Vinnie Sponges singer drummed for Bradford Youth Gang when he was just a youth, 16 yrs old, just nobody seemed to know who the fuck Sponge was, and I cant believe nobodys heard Plowed, that song was Huge, it was in the movie Empire records.

    • 1. Agreed 2. Agreed. Well, not that it's great all the way through, but it's "their" best album by a long way. 4. Agreed they're over-rated, but don't like a think about 'Blackout' at all. 'Face the heat' would be my favourite album, and it's solid but generally mediocre at best.  5. Agreed. No interest in the band whatsoever. 6. Yeah, bad singer for sure, but Slaughter were great. 7. Agree that Led Zep never did a thing for me, but Deep Purple no better is I guess my controversial opinion. Both did what they did, but not for me at all. 8. Van Halen's best albums are none of them because there aren't any. They're all terrible with a good song sprinkled here and there across the whole discography. 9. 'Organized Crime,' by a good margin is Treat's best album, imo. 'Dreamhunter' is easily on par with recent output too, but I agree the first two are probably behind most of all their recent output.  10. I actually agree, even though 'LWTCDI' is probably my personal favourite album from them. But yes, 'Flesh and Blood' is obviously a much better album.   1. I have probably been Journey's biggest and harshest critic on this forum, but to say they have zero good songs, imo, is a bit ridiculous. Agree on Steve Perry, though. 2. I wasn't aware they had a good song. News to me. A bunch of okay background noise songs but that's about it.  3. Don't think you'd get much disagreement there at all. Not sure if I'd call it "great" but it's good for sure with some excellence on it.    
    • I would think it's a single according to this blurb:  the 5th Santa Cruz record ”THE RETURN OF THE KINGS” due next Fall
    • Have heard the album and like it.  Basically for me there's 5 excellent tunes classic, melodic, Leppard sounding tunes (Take What You Want, Kick, Fire It Up, SOS Emergency, Gimme A Kiss), then maybe 5-6 others that are pretty good depending on your tastes.  Then there's probably 4 tunes that are going to be skips for me (This Guitar, Gone for Good, Lifeless, From Here to Eternity). .  I'd say This Guitar might be one of my least favorite songs they've ever done lol. Still though, at least for me there's a decent "normal" album of material in this album (10 tracks or so) if you didn't mind the Slang through X era of the band.  I say that only because a lot of these tunes just seem to remind me of different songs from those albums. I definitely like it more than the past couple albums they've done but if somebody hasn't cared for what they've done the past 20 years or so then they should just skip this and move on as they won't like this either. 
    • 1. Agree...didn't think anyone else here agreed with my view of Journey. 2. Nope. 3. Agreed.
