  1. DEPROGRAMMER ..THE TRUTH.I’AM PHILIP RIBIERRE DRUMMER SONGWRITER FOR DEPROGRAMMER 80-83. TRUTH THE 1st SINGLE DISCIPLINE/DAMNATION WAS RECORDED IN HOLLYWOOD RELEASED ON AT LAST RECORDS. TRUTH WE WHERE PLAYING SHOWS WITH BLACK FLAG,SOCIAL DISTORTION,DKs,ect.TRUTH THE LINE UP WAS JEFF PORTER BASS from LA RICHARD SCOTT SHANNON VOCALS/GUITAR from SAN DIEGO PHILIP PRINCE LEAD GUITAR AND MYSELF BOTH LIVING IN HOLLYWOOD FOR TWO YRS. I WAS BORN IN FRANCE LIVING IN ENGLAND AT PRESENT.TRUTH DURING THE S.WESTSUMMER TOUR OF 81 WE REPLACED JEFF FOR PAUL ORR from DALLAS.TRUTH WE RECORDED THE 2nd SINGLE IN DALLAS WHILE ON TOUR AND RELEASED IT IN LA. AFTER GETTING A DISTRIBUTION DEAL WITH BOMP! RECORDS.THE SCENE IN LA. WAS SPLINTERING A HYBRID PUNK/GOTH SOUND WAS STARTING. WE WHERE CHANGING DOING SHOWS WITH GUN CLUB, TSOL, WALL OF VOODOO,45 GRAVE ect> ALSO SHOWS WITH POP/ NEW WAVE ACTS LIKE BERLIN,GARY MYRICK & THE FIGURES.OUR NEW MATERIAL WAS LESS HARD CORE,EVEN THOUGH WE STILL DID SHOWS PLAYING OUR OLDER SONGS WE ADDED JIM LITTLETON AND ARE SOUND EVOLVED. WE DID A WINTER TOUR IN81/82 SAN FRANCISCO TO NEW ORLEANS WITH 17 DATES IN BETWEEN. IN THE LATE SUMMER OF 82 WE WENT BACK INTO THE STUDIO AT CITY RECORDERS IN HOLLYWOOD TO BEGIN WHAT WOULD BECOME OUR FIRST LP.. AFTER RECORDING THE A-SIDE A DEAL WAS STRUCK WITH MYSTIC RECORDS WE WHERE SIGNED AND WENT TO MYSTIC SOUND TO FINISH WHAT IS THE B-SIDE.SCOTT AND I SPLIT THE LYRICS 50/50 ON THE LP. THE MUSIC EXCEPT DENMARK AND FOREVER that are mine ARE GROUP COMPOSITIONS. WE WENT ON THE ROAD IN THE FALL TO PROMOTE THE LP.DOING SHOWS WITH MISSING PERSONS, THE BIG BOYS,THE MISFITS JUST TO NAME A FEW.TRUTH THE LP. WAS RUSHED INTO PRODUCTION THE MASTERING WAS CRAP TOO MUCH COMPRESSION ON EVERYTHING ANYONE WHO SAW DEPROGRAMMER LIVE THOUGHT THE RECORD SOUNDED LIKE ANOTHER BAND .ALL THE EDGE AND POWER WHERE LOST.THE STRESS OF TOURING TOOK ITS TOLE. WE RE-GROUPED IN THE SPRING OF 83 IN SAN DIEGO AT A RANCH IN AN ORANGE ORCHARD.RECORDED THE BASIC TRACKS TO WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN OUR 3rd.SINGLE NOBODY/HOT N COLD PLAYED OUR FINAL 6 SHOWS IN HOLLYWOOD AND BROKE UP FOR MORE REASONS THAN I WANT TO REMEMBER MOSTLY CONTRACTS,MONEY,PERSONALITY DIFFERENCES.PHILIP PRINCE PAUL ORR AND I WOULD GET BACK TOGETHER IN 84 WITH A BAND CALLED SEX N MONEY AFTER 7 SHOWS IT ENDED. TOO MANY MEMORIES OF THE PAST.

  2. i will recommend my friends to read this.I will bookmark your blog and.I am quite sure they will learn lots of new stuff here than anybody else!….There is also a lot of visual symbolism that is sometimes subtle, sometimes not so subtle…

  3. The Band Deprogrammer is talked about in this episode because it was posted by KBD Records. Nothing great going for it except for its leadoff track “Heroine” and a couple of others. But what came as a pleasant surprise was that the scriptwriter and drummer made contact and gave a brief history about the origin of the band and how they slowly parted ways!! That is the power of internet for you – you may just hear of people long forgotten with the click of a mouse!!I am a big fan of taylor lautner twilight

  4. Philip, I am a big fan of Deprogrammer from way back. I never did see the band live but love the singles and LP that I have. I agree that the production on the LP is not up to snuff, and in a perfect world could be remastered. But I am curious about the third single or any other tracks not released… is there any way a real fan can hear those songs?

    Thanks!

  5. Just came across your fine blog. I have the vinyl of this and really love the whole thing. While I can’t argue with your personal likes/dislikes, I must say that not offering the entire album up for download, you are doing a disservice to the numbskulls like me who would really like all of it in digital form. Therefore, I humbly request you reconsider and re-post the whole album. Thanks.

  7. Found this doing a search on the band. It is from CREEM magazine from June 1981 and was written by Chris Stein (from BLONDIE) about things he experienced in Los Angeles:

    One day Orson Welles is in another room recording his voice for something (wildfire wine). Perry Como is recording his Christmas In Israel special with what sounds like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir when some kid backs up about 200 feet into the parking lot across the way from the building and then floors it driving right smack into the wall of the studio making a big hole, a mess, and pretty much totalling what turns out to be his girlfriend’s Audi. So the kid’s name is Jeffrey, his girlfriend’s name is Suzy. They have a fight on the way to get blood tests for their marriage license so Jeffrey got pissed and the rest is history. That’s the official excuse anyway – we wonder ’cause it happens Suzy and Jeffrey are in a black leather rock band called Deprogrammer and Jeff happens to have copies of his new single “Slammed In The Door” in the back seat of the former Audi. Luckily no one is hurt at all and the police are merciful and don’t drag Jeffrey off to the slammer. That’s what the song is about.
    That’s pretty much it.

  8. Greg,
