I stumbled across this on A Reasonable Guide to Horrible Noise blog while searching around. All credit goes to them as well as the upload link being theirs as well. The demo that helped get them signed to Victory Records and begin the legend that would become Snapcase.

That's interesting. When their first 7" came out on Victory, I didn't like it. Wasn't into their singer at that time. But when Lookinglasself was released with the lineup changed.....holy shit! I love that record! It still sounds fresh today.

I used to have this demo, I got it the first time Snapcase came through Detroit. I think that was back in winter of 92? it was an amazing show, Snapcase, Face Value, and Pitbull. I have been looking for this for years.

this was made for the Snapcase show in Chicago at a club called Wrigley Side by Tony Victory & the band.

I have the older demo when they were called Solid State. The tape insert/cover is a all red paper with sketch of a guy in a hood, but it sort of looks like a Clansman... kind of awkward. It's not very good. That said, at a snapcase show in DC near the end of the band's life, instead of their intro music coming on, we played a song from the demo. Daryl about fell over on stage from what appeared to be laughter and embarrassment.

Still got a show flyer from the time Snapcase played with Thought Crime at Cheers. I ve got to scan it and send it to you.
