Reissue of a previous bootleg of unreleased demos (one 11 track session from 1978, the other a 9 track session from 1979), plus 2 alt. 7" takes. Doesn't include the original studio recordings of their singles, that's forthcoming on a Revenant release; medium quality, but it's the only Crime release out there (for now). "One of the most artistically significant and visually subversive bands in the rock n roll universe was Crime. Having released the first independent punk record on the West Coast in 1976 they immediately set a precedent as one of the loosest, most raw, uncompromising and confrontational bands of all time. Dubbing themselves 'San Francisco's first and only Rock N Roll band' only added to an already bubbling alienation from the punk scene at that time. They were simply too wild to contain, too stylized to ignore, and musically too violent for the faint of heart. San Francisco's Still Doomed is a reissue of their classic San Francisco's Doomed record with two unreleased bonus tracks (alternate takes of 'Hot Wire My Heart' and 'You're So Repulsive'), never seen before photos, updated liner notes and better mastering. Both bonus tracks are taken from the same session that produced the first Crime single."
