Regular price $5.00
Lead singer and primary songwriter Douglas Burns along with longtime friend and Speds band mate Colin Grigson formed the Observers. The intention of the band was to create a new voice in music that was true to the traditional punk sound of the 70’s and 80’s while remaining contemporary and relevant. The band formed in 2002, but did not play their first live show until March 2003 after settling on their first line-up, which included Muslim on guitar and Skeeter Joplin on drums. Together, this line-up recorded the “Down On Today” demo. This record features 4 songs from said demo. Tracked in Colin's room and mixed in Doug's this 4 track demo was first released on tape and then on CD-R. It was only sold at the first shows THE OBSERVERS played.
