*This is a compilation of five (from many) different appearances by Toronto band Abrasives, 1985-1988. Originally shot on Super 8 film that has deteriorated – including sound, at points – over the past thirty years, three are at the historic Cabana Room (RIP), one at Larry’s Hideaway (likewise) and the last at the June 26, 1988 Lesbian & Gay Pride parade. Featured players include (respectively) Steve Mills, Steve West and Paul McNally on bass; Herb Ham and John Bucknam on drums; John Timmons on second guitar (last clip) and Bill Turner everywhere else.
