THE UNFORGIVEN (DEMO)
Obviously Not Produced
Recorded on October 4, 1990 at Bayview Studios, Richmond, CA

"A couple of firsts on this demo: 1) Lyrics! 2) First time we played it as a group together in the same place. We were still perfecting our recording technique - obvious from Jaymz' vocals. Kinda has that folksy family feeling."
