Drive Like Jehu - Demo

Label: self released
Year: 1990

If you were to make a list of the "Best Bands of the 1990's" (and honestly...what kind of nerd would have the time to do such a thing?!), Drive Like Jehu would be in the mix, right? I mean, in among Fugazi, and Unwound, and Archers of Loaf, and Craw, and Neurosis, and Sonic Youth, and Sunny Day Real Estate, and Deadguy, and Chavez, and Harvey Milk, and Boilermaker, and Oasis, and Radiohead, and Nirvana, and Quicksand, and Helmet, and Today Is The Day, and Smashing Pumpkins, and....
I should really make a list.

All that aside, here are four songs in demo form that would all end up in album form on Drive Like Jehu's first album. Nothing to really think about. It's Drive Like Jehu, one of the best bands of the 90's (or so they say).

like Dazzling Killmen.
like U.S. Maple.
