These demo songs were offered to British band HEAVY PETTIN' while Gene Simmons was on location filming "Runaway".
The cover and spine of this Maxell Epilaxial UDXL 90 cassette include Gene's handwriting and is dated 9-14-83. The cassette sleeve was originally the sleeve for
O' WILLIAMS demos from Right Track Recording in New York.
There are two additional demo-tracks added to the tape: "While The City Sleeps" and
* Track 01 : written by Gene Simmons, Mikel Japp and Mitch
Two versions of this demo song do exist, one has Gene laughing at the beginning of the song. The guitar riff on "It's Gonna Be Allright" is played by Mitch Weissman, and later used on "Reason for Living" (1985 and 1992 demo-versions).
* Track 02
: "We Won't Take It Anymore " was long considered as a
Gene Simmons 1985 "Asylum" demo. The song was offered
to British band HEAVY PETTIN' while Gene Simmons was on location
A final version of "While The City Sleeps" appeared on
KISS "Animalize" 1984 album, and "Anyway You
Slice It" ended up on Kiss "Asylum" album (1985).
