NOTES :
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
WENDY 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 "Chrome Heart".


* Track 01 : written by Gene Simmons, Mikel Japp and Mitch Weissman.
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 filming "Runaway".

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).
