Rare Demo Tape From Dave Grohl's Childhood Band Leaks Online
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.17.2014

Antiquiet reports that a rare demo tape of Dave Grohl's early band Dain Bramage, which was before Foo Fighters, Nirvana and Scream. Grohl played drums in the three-piece group, which was created after Grohl's first group Mission Impossible (first called Freak Baby). It was part of the Washington DC punk scene before it floundered in the late 80s. The band lasted for two years but released two cassette demos and an LP under the "Fartblossom Enterprises" label.

The LP I Scream Not Coming Down is available on the internet and from vinyl collectors. Eight songs from the original demos for 1986's Laundry Room session are what have leaked online. One of them is a cover of a Grand Funk Railroad song.

Foo Fighters posted a photo on Twitter last year of the old band with the caption "dain bramage 2013". It doesn't appear to have been anything more than a friendly reunion. The band has showed support for Grohl's "Laundry Room studios, where he made music with friend Barrett Jones since he was 14.

Singer Reuben Radding is now a photographer and bassist Dave Smith is living in Virgnia. Radding says that while they've tried to keep the band going, "after you've spent a couple years with Dave Grohl as your drummer it's easy to feel like no other drummer exists."
