Ace Frehley's Pre-KISS Demos Revealed

A demo from the band Molimo, featuring former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley, has been found in a collection of old vinyl in a barn in upstate New York. Molimo recorded a demo for RCA in 1971, but had it shelved. Two years later Ace would hook up with KISS.

The disc was discovered by record collector Chris Reisman, who had to dig through thousands of LPs to find the gem:

"I received a call that this guy in upstate New York had a barn full of 10-to-20,000 records. I went up there every Tuesday for a month straight. I was able to get through everything, and in the last wall unit's last shelf of records was a corner full of test presses and acetates and it was in there. At the time, I had no clue what it was, but I just bought them all," Reisman told the Village Voice.

The three track demo is available for streaming at the Village Voice webpage.
