The tracks presented here are drawn from demo recordings by the earliest line-ups of Sensory Fix., a post punk band that performed in the Philadelphia area during 1981and 1982.
Mostly teenagers, they were one of the youngest bands among the promising new acts developing on the region's underground small venue club scene along with local headliners such as the Stickmen, and Bunnydrums.
Informed by punk and new wave in their performance both visually and aurally , the Sensory Fix sound was fortified by founding member, John Green's funk informed guitar styling.
Their demo track of "Last Match," produced on a 4 track cassette recorder by John Young of Executive Slacks, was included in a showcase of promising new Philadelphia bands on the compilation album, "I'd Rather Be In Philadelphia."
Various demo cassettes were circulated, one of which was given airplay on the college radio show, "Yesterday's Now Music Today" hosted by DJ Lee Paris, who also provided some press attention in his weekly column.
Tracks are listed as close to chronological order as possible, beginning with the 4 track cassette recordings engineered and produced by John Young, followed by studio quality reel to reel tape demo tracks produced by Ron Ackerman, and closing with extracts from cassette recordings of the band's research and development rehearsals.
After the departure of their original vocalist in 1982, Sensory Fix continued with a number of line-ups exploring their funk informed sound led by band founder and guitarist, John Slepian, aka John Green.
