The Ablum

The Alleged copy of Fire Hazard posted by Redit user Wkhdgj.

Fire Hazard was a 2003 demo released by the anarchist folk punk band, Johnny Hobo and the Freight Trains. A small number of physical copies were presumably distributed in person and through their website before it went out of print.[1]

Most tracks have been re-recorded and are in circulation on later albums. This excludes Skimming Bakunin, FLESRUOYLLik, and If by "emo" you mean "drugs"..., which have never been heard by the majority of fans. No live bootlegs have surfaced of these tracks.

There is evidence to suggest there may still be copies of the demo out there somewhere. A Reddit user called "Wkhdgj" claimed in 2018 that they owned a copy of Fire Hazard which they had received from Patrick Schneeweis in high school. They posted a picture of the alleged CD, but claimed that they were unable to presently upload it due to not having a disc drive.[2] However some have speculated that this poster may have been a troll.

The music tracking website Last.FM shows that one listener has listened to the tracks Skimming Bakunin and FLESRUOYLLik.[3]
