Rare Centerpoint recording

Centerpoint - 'Reference recording'

My dude Michael uploaded a link to this recording on my Facebook page last night, and I learned that the origins of this recording are as follows:

I had been asked to try out for the band. I went and played with them in someone's garage in Long Beach. Afterwards they asked me to join them and gave me this tape made for a reference recording.

I went home and asked my parents if I could be in the band. (I was only 14 or 15 maybe, at the time.) Then I was told the band had broken up and that some of the members were going on to start a Weezer-ish band.

I don't know what the first track is. But it was the very first thing on the tape, so I put it one here.

The end.

This was written by a guy, Paul, on a the SoundCloud page of this recording. Very interesting, considering the recording contains songs that were never recorded on any of the band's demos or anything. Michael also informed of a rare song recorded by the band that is on a CD out there somewhere. If he, or anyone, ever finds it, it will be posted on here. Very cool stuff from a very awesome, and overlooked, Christian hardcore band of the 90s. Check it.
