    Info: Here is a vinyl rip that I did for the 1983 EP by Alien called "Cosmic Fantasy." Alien was a New York band whose singer Frank C. Starr eventually was the lead singer for the Four Horsemen. The song "Cosmic Fantasy" was repeated on both sides of this piece of vinyl that was released on the Mongol Horde label.

    Very cool indeed. I had the vinyl of this on Mongol Horde and always thought it was rather cool back in the day, with those ear-piercing vocals. I had several of these early Mongol Hordes, including the Virgin Steele - how I wish I had saved them. Anyway, will be great to hear your vinyl.

    As a p.s. I read some years back, somewhere on the net, that one of the members ended up jailed for murder. I can't remember exactly which one, I think it was the bass-player?

    Yeah, it was the bass player. I don't have the vinyl in front of me right now, but I think his name is Damien "The Beast" Bardot.

    Just a FYI that the guitarist for Alien is selling self-published CDs of the original EP along with bonus tracks for $12 US. The bonus tracks sound like a recorded rehearsal but I'm not sure where they are from so I asked this morning. He hasn't responded yet. If anyone is interested in buying a copy, send a message to him on his Facebook profile.

    Donny verified that the bonus tracks are live recordings of a rehearsal. I really like the song Dogs of War. They definitely needed to record that one in a studio.
