Blah – Demos from 1990-1996

Blah
Demos from 1990-1996
Fullerton, California, USA

Sometimes when looking for stuff on YouTube you come across a goldmine. Such is the case when I found all kinds of demos from 1990’s punk band Blah. They started off as Childhood, releasing a demo called Three Geeks and a Hippie before changing their name to Blah. It seems that the drummer Darrell who posted these was also in an alternative band called Out From Under at the same time. Those two will need their own post. For now, I wanted to cover the Blah demos, as these are good DIY 90s punk. These were all uploaded as one file per demo, some with track lists and some without. I took my best guess on the ones without:
