I saw the first Slaves show at Bottom Of The Hill. I was excited because I loved The VSS.

It was less than stellar.

I saw them again a few years later at Brownie's and they were much, much improved. Andy said I was probably one of the few people who was at that first show who had seen them again.

These two records are pretty killer, with "Penumbra-Hadabra" in particular being an amazing song. I couldn't find them when they came out as they weren't too easy to find on this side of the Atlantic, but I was able to discover them more recently for a pretty reasonable price.

My discovery is now yours. I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I do.

Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, Slaves.

THANKS SO MUCH!!! Slaves were one of my favorite bands from the old days and in my opinion they're very underrated. I saw them at Koos in Santa Ana in the late 90's or early 00's, their performance made me a believer. Dave Clifford is still one of my all time favorite drummers.
