ANTHROPHOBIA -- “Get Up To Date” demo
ANTHROPHOBIA is a punk/rock band that have been here in Philly for about 4 years now. The current line-up includes Frank Phobia on guitar and vocals, Kelly Phobia on bass, Mig Phobia on guitar and Chuck Treece on drums.
This 60 minute tape contains studio and live tracks done over the last three and a half years.
ANTHROPHOBIA has a pretty good bag of tricks, playing rhythmic thrash, mid-tempo punkers and catchy rock with equal artistry. The tape is fascinating in that, by comparing the old and new tracks, you can witness the growth and progression of the band. But the real attraction is the diversity – ANTHROPHOBIA cover all the bases without spreading themselves too thin, and this makes them one of the few bands that I could listen to a 60-minute tape of without touching the fast forward button. Most of the songs are very good, and the others have enough to hold my interest. A very pleasant surprise – highly recommended. $3 to 254 S. 15th St. 2F, Phila., PA 19102. [TONY]
