  1. Hey all — link below for the MP3s! The quality is UNREAL. I’m excited to hear everyone’s thoughts. The New Hope demo… I have no words. @daveyjones is going to pop in with some more details! HUGE thank you to Davey for this. Not only for doing the legwork and sharing his knowledge (as always), but also for being a lovely human with endless love and positivity for this band. I’m super excited to have this little tape, but it would be pretty useless without your help, Davey, and without communities like this. Anyway, enjoy!! https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1WoMCY09

  2. for years we thought it was a fake, a rumor, a unicorn! but no. it's real. ok here are all the details for my fellow nerds... first off, with this tape we now have heard all the demo material prior to the dude ranch demo sessions (the ones mark played me in 1996, the ones @veeRob managed to get back to him last year) known to exist. also, @Ry-Bread forget about buddha (~1,000 copies) or even short bus (500 copies). from what i gather these were dubbed for only a small number of industry folks, record store people etc. maybe @blinkstillrules can ask joe vandal if he remembers. bu

  8. You have to watch Rick Beato's video on Youtube, if you already haven't, on why this song is great when he reviews ATST. Great breakdown.

  11. The idea of MSandt ever having a relationship- let alone having the opportunity to turn someone down because of their gender identity- is much sillier than they/them pronouns.

  16. I narrowly avoided getting my ass beat for liking Blink182 in those days. The punk scene was ... "opinionated" here in San Antonio and Austin back then ... I'd have been hung if I had done anything short of cruelly mock Simple Plan and anyone who listened to them.

  19. It's incredibly easy to dismiss something as silly if you put no effort into actually trying to view the world from someone else's perspective. I'm glad your sister helped open your mind Speedo, and your girlfriend Diddy,and honestly @JarJarBlinks you're better than that. Come on.

  23. Well, you call it pop, Tom call it a ballad. Neither of you is right, it's a jazz infused funk song.

  26. I submit that All the Small Things wouldn’t have been nearly the hit it was without the use of octaves after the first chorus. Made the song so much catchier

  27. I love octave chords. They're kinda like power chords, just omitting the 5th and muting that string, so they're not really major or minor (like a power chord isn't really major or minor) and can work for either. I can definitely think of poppy sounding songs that use them. Lit's "My Own Worst Enemy" for starters. That intro is octave chords. "Feeling This" by blink.

  28. What? First Date and All The Small Things literally are filled with octaves numb nuts

  29. interesting take. all the poppier bands i can think of use them. every single one. but then you're talking major keys and basic circle of fifths stuff. but you're right that bands like BR and NOFX use minor keys and chords, and pair them with progressions in more discordant ways for a darker edge. @blinkstillrules... thoughts on power octave use when you have a moment please.

  31. So i do remember seeing them by chance at warped tour, right before they blew up. And they were really good. I remember thinking I found a really rowdy punk band hahaha

  36. I posted this image to the Facebook group trying to figure out what the hell it actually is. I've had the shitty mp3s since the 2000ish. It's nice to finally shed some light on this tape. Thank you @wastingtimefor sharing rips with us via Davey. I finally have a listenable copy and it sounds great.

  37. Thanks for ripping this, Davey. Really appreciate it. Also thanks to Jo and John. Since the early 2000s, two rips have been floating around. One was super over-amplified and the other was decent. Not sure which one(s) is on YouTube. I've kept the decent (192 kbps) rip, but this 320 rip is audibly better quality and less flat, even without headphones. It's curious that "A New Hope" isn't listed as "Princess Leia" like in the previous rips. I remember seeing a copy of the tape on a Facebook group in early 2018, but it was never listened to properly. It had to be the infamous promo.

  39. I can't believe MGK is making it onto some lists here 🤣 Don't get me wrong, it was a decent effort that I enjoyed but in the top 10 pop punk artists of all time? fucking mental

  40. This is awesome!! Thanks again @John Roundear @daveyjones @wastingtime. From what I can hear based off how the drums are eq'd as well as the guitar tones, the first 3 tracks were definitely part of the same recording session and production which I assume is the Warren "demo session" and tracks 4-8 were all likely recorded and produced from the "Short Bus sessions". You can especially note the kick drum and snare difference between the 2 sessions. Another interesting note is this was the Ben Wah Balls recording that made the final cut for Cheshire Cat even though Steve Kravac reminisced in this

  41. So Joe didn't have much to say regarding the demo sessions with Warren other than he'd have to check with him (Warren). He also suggested I message Warren as well. I did but never heard back yet. Joe did have this to say regarding the Buddha Promo tape Davey just ripped: It was a low budget production engineered partly by this guy named "O". Warren Fitzgerald remixed some of the tracks after we acquired it. It probably cost $100 per track to produce. Dude Ranch was more like $8,000 per track.

  42. gonna echo what everyone else is saying here. sounds great and i might even prefer this version of new hope over the album version. makes me disappointed that blink has no interest in making things like this available in an official way.
