Oingo Boingo

Demo EP was a self-produced, four-song EP single released by the southern California New Wave band Oingo Boingo.[1] Produced by the band themselves and intended solely for radio stations and A&R representatives, it was limited to a total of 130 copies. Each cover was spray painted, with a different design on each copy, though known copies also included an Oingo Boingo flyer which read "Modern Music For Modern Reptiles". Copies of the EP are considered extraordinarily rare, with few members of the band even owning copies.

This version of "Ain't This the Life" was later reissued on the 10" vinyl version of the Oingo Boingo EP in 1980 (for reasons unknown, the 12" version contained a new recording), while these versions of "Only a Lad" and "I'm So Bad" were reissued on all versions of that EP. Only "Forbidden Zone" has never been reissued anywhere else, although a vastly truncated version appears on the soundtrack for the film of the same name.
