I have the Demons record on vinyl. I loved that thing and have tried to find it on Cd or as a downloadable in the years since. I got the original from WKNC radio station on NC State campus in 1978. I wore out a cassette I made from it. Let me know if is available. thanks, great to hear you are still recording.

Hello, found this site as I have been trying to locate Robbie for years. From 79-83 we worked together in a BayRidge bar and he taught me how to play bass and guitar, showing me your parts to I Fought the Law and I hate you. Glad to see your still playing, enjoyed trying to copy your leads (never did it well) If you have any info on how I can find Robbie (we nicknamed him needles, and me pins) when we played; I'd appreciate it much. Also, over the years can't find my old demons album, do you know anyone that carries it or converted to CD?

Hello Martin, This past Friday, I went to see the Speedies reunion at a club called Southpaw in Brooklyn. There was another band there "Tina & The Total Babes" and they played "She's So Tuff". I said to myself isn't this the Demons song ? I started surfing the net to refresh my memory and I came across your webpage. It's great to see that your still playing. I'm dating myself, but I remember seeing the Demons gig at Sheepshead Bay High School in Brooklyn back around 1979 (?) Robbie Twyford was playing a (clear)Lucite/Plexiglass bass. Soon after that performance, we heard that Mike passed away in a car accident. I still have the original Lp. I also remember talikng with you you near the bar at the Ritz some years later..

Hi Martin,

You do not know me ,but one of my best friends I went to school with was your drummer, Mike Rappoport. We use to play in a band together in High School. After you completed your first album. Mike played with me at a benefit at Brooklyn College. A couple of weeks later he died in a car accident. I still have that album he recorded with you. Was that album ever made CD? If so please let me know where I can buy it. Thanks Frank
