The Ochrana - demo / live@CBGB

Another ol' NY band requested from a friend... The Ochrana was formed in '87, by drummer David Patti (after The Naked & the Dead and The Children's Zoo) and vocalist Guy Richards Smit (Addictive Manifesto). They usually played with Of a Mesh.
Their sound is dark and bleak and danceable. The material here consists of four demos recorded in Oct 23 '87, with "Empty" added in summer '88. The rest are live material from CBGB (and one from Tramps).
Smit now does performance art, video art, and painting, as well as performs as a member of Maxi Geil! & Playcolt.

1. "Empty"
2. "Turnabout"
3. "Eastern Bloc Baby"
4. "Angalique" (sorry for odd cutoff at the end, if I find a way to fix it I will...)
5. "Why"
6. "Streams of Reality" (live at Tramps, Feb '88)
7. "Child of Anger" (live at CBGB, Apr '88)
8. "Turnabout" (live at CBGB, Apr '88)
