Farside's "Scrap" is a collection of their first 2 demos, the first of which featured Zach De La Rocha on guitar. The lineup is more or less the same as the later releases but with Zach on guitar. This CD is pretty hard to come by from what I understand so enjoy this. All this material was released before they signed with Crisis/Revelation.


EDIT: After posting this, K. Murphy passed on this info, correcting what I had written. Thanks for the update and the correct info.

"Nope. Zach is on the second demo and the line ups are pretty different. Josh Stanton (411) on bass and Rob Haworth (Hard Stance and State of the Nation on guitar. But certainly hard to find. Only 1000 pressed." - K. Murphy

Thank you!
I can't wait to get home from work and download this. Are any of these songs the same as the demos tacked on to the end of the Rochambeau CD?
One of my favorite bands of all time. I wish they could find the time for another album. (Knowing Kevin might read this)
Can't wait to hear the Popeye and Jeff Caudill stuff they're working on. (saw your comment on their facebook)

The songs at the end of the Rochambeau CD are actually the first Farside 7" EP titled Keep My Soul Awake on Crisis Records (Rev's sister label in the early '90s).

while i'm here, i'm gonna ask something i always wanted to know. what was the deal with all the "joke" songs on monroe doctrine? always ended up skipping those and its kind of a bummer because without that stuff, it's a perfect record.

I saw these guys back in 99 and the CD was sold out at the merch counter. Never could find in for download, got lucky and found it used on amazon the other day used...Keep looking.
