So this is the last Spike demo (that I know of) to cover for this blog. This tape is actually a live recording of an acoustic concert that Spike (aka Terry McCabe) did for the Birthright organization. It contains a spoken word intro by Chris Yambar that tells all about McCabe. There is also an insert with the tape that tells his history. This concert was recorded in 1981 but released in 1989. So it seems that all of these Furnace Room tapes were meant to get older music by Terry released to a wider audience. This concert was just McCabe and guitar, so it is interesting to hear acoustic / unplugged versions of songs like “Newave.”
