    Again by someone's request. These guys were from Oxford, and as some of you may or may not know later morphed into Crash K.O., which after releasing 2 demos breaking up contributed Treason veterans singer Steve Denham and drummer Ace Finchum to the then-forming Tigertailz.

    This is the 2nd demo. I'm not sure if anyone has the first one, which is supposed to have lower recording quality. Anyway this one is much more known and widely circulated, and got a pretty good review in the Armed and Ready section of Kerrang! in 1982. Unfortunately the band didn't last long ... There was also some connection with the great Tranzzam as I think Steve Denham played there for a while. Not sure though.

    that's it.

    Steve Denham - Vocals
    Dave Docherty - Guitars
    Rick Page - Bass
    Ace Finchum - Drums

    The confusion about the Treason/Crash KO demo(s) has been going on since about 1982!

    For the record, when i got the demos from the band back in the day, it was 5 songs on 1 tape, which comprised both demos according to Stevie Denham, the singer.
    When the band became Crash KO, they circulated the 2nd Treason demo again, this time under the new Crash KO name.
    That's as clear as i can make it.
