Divine Plague - Eat My Shorts (Cassette Only, 1990)

Gordon Grant - Guitar
Mike Gravelle - Drums
Ryan Hunter - Bass
Clay Hoffman - Vocals

Info surfaces from former member Ryan Hunter:

Divine Plague existed from roughly 1987 to 1993. we had the dumb idea to trade instruments at least once every show, but the line up for the most part was: vocals-clay "red bird" hoffman, drums-mike "mosh" gravelle, six-string- gordon "gordy" grant, and four-string- ryan "scumbag" hunter (all did vocals to some degree)
 I might have seen them play a house party once but it's hard to remember, one of those beer soaked evenings. Uber Hall maybe? I don't know, punk rock!

  1. this was the 1990 demo, "eat my shorts." every cassette came with free dp stick and a piece of juicy-fruit gum.
    the above link gives about a third of the cover-art, by clay hoffman.
    divine plague were: vocals- clay "red bird" hoffman, drums- mike "mosh" gravelle, six string- gordon "gordy" grant, and four string- ryan "scumbag" hunter.

  2. 1991 demo, "wrath of ephram" contained the songs: 1. saturday morning, 2. double load (the public laundry mat), 3. elite hardcore, and 4. i'm a recruiter.
    faster and more cross-over than hardcore than "eat my shorts"
