J. Gallows & the Executioners (1980-81)




Julie Hodge - Guitar/Vocals
Madjym (R.I.P.) - Bass
Mark Cummings - Drums/Xylophone

Before we even get started, a sincere thank you to Joe Lewis for the pictures and to Erich Boekelheide for recording the demos, holding on to them for all these years and finally for sharing them. These are the first demos I've been able to uncover from the small first wave of Eugene punk influenced bands. I didn't think I'd ever be able to turn up recordings like this.  This also marks the first band to make the format change on this blog which will be each band having their own page with all available recordings and pictures. Figured it's easier to add more recordings/pictures as they surface and keep things a bit tidier.

Julie Hodge was J. Gallows and evidently Madjym used to wear an executioner costume with a fencing mask covering his face. Mark Cummings left the band to attend college elsewhere and was replaced by Chuck Clearwater. At some point in the band's brief history ('80-'81) Madjym was also replaced by Bob Allen. I believe all recordings posted here are of the original lineup mentioned at the top of the page.

If anyone has additional recordings, pictures or stories about the band, please send them in!
