The Return (Onion Johnny Gravel Pit Demo, Summer 1989)

from by Villareal



By the time we got to record 'The Return' properly, there had been several names and member changes. God knows we were making life difficult for ourselves with the 'Onion Johnny' moniker, but the studio was even worse and we couldn't even fit the bass drum in through the studio doors...and as a result, had too use the in-house synth kit instead-which immediately dated our song by about 5 years (it was 1989).
Well, that's my story and i'm sticking to it...
