OLD

Hailing from New Jersey USA ,the band were originally called Regurgitation, and were responsible for the widely circulated late 80’s demo tape “Bathrooms Rule” which attracted the attention of Earache to their brand of well executed, super-fast grind, albeit with a zany sense of humor. The line up of Jim, Alan and drummer Ralph Pimentel recorded the blasting self-titled debut album “Old Lady Drivers” in 1988, and it is an important early document of the USA grind scene, but sadly predates the time Earache was releasing its output on CD, so is only on vinyl LP to this day.

Hailing from New Jersey USA ,the band were originally called Regurgitation, and were responsible for the widely circulated late 80’s demo tape “Bathrooms Rule” which attracted the attention of Earache to their brand of well executed, super-fast grind, albeit with a zany sense of humor. The line up of Jim, Alan and drummer Ralph Pimentel recorded the blasting self-titled debut album “Old Lady Drivers” in 1988, and it is an important early document of the USA grind scene, but sadly predates the time Earache was releasing its output on CD, so is only on vinyl LP to this day. Musically, It showcased the bands blistering grind with OTT vocals, encompassing juvenile themes, but early signs of Jim Plotkin’s undoubted guitar talents shine through regardless.

O.L.D. dispensed with Ralph’s services,(replacing him with a drum machine, programmed by Jim) and embarked on a handful of low key New York shows, but as a 2- piece with drum machine, they never caught the imagination of the predominately metal crowds they played to. For the next album, 1991’s “Lo Flux Tube” , the band recruited Jason Everman on bass - before joining OLD , Jason was briefly in an up n coming Seattle band called Nirvana, and is in fact pictured on the front sleeve of their debut “Bleach” on Sub Pop. Jason quickly moved on, this time to Soundgarden and Mindfunk, and was replaced for the 3rd OLD album, “The Musical Dimensions Of Sleastak” by Herschel Gaer. By this time OLD were evolving into a 2 person studio-only project, the line up problems ensuring that live shows were non existent. « hide
