They went into the original Laundry Room Studio and recorded a demo with David Smith on drums, Dave Grohl on guitar, Bryant Mason on guitar, Brian Samuels on bass and Chris Page as vocals. This lineup lasted 6 months. One time - as rehearsal was wrapping up - Grohl asked if he could play drums, Smith grabbed the bass; Bryant and Chris joined in (Brian wasn't present). The four guys were really happy with the way things went and reformed as the four piece know as Mission Impossible. The new lineup was a vast improvement, and they began playing more shows.
Mission Impossible went into Laundry Room studios and re-recorded some of the Freak Baby songs and recorded some new tracks. Soon after they recorded this demo, they duetted with the fellow D.C.-located band, Lunch Meat. They ended up playing some shows together and remained in Washington D.C. Eventually they would go on to release a Lunch Meat/Mission Impossible 7" on Dischord Records. Mission Impossible continued up until Bryant and Chris graduated from high school and continued education at college.
At this point Reuben Radding entered the scene in the infamous first jam in Grohl's living room in Springfield, VA. After that first jam they had 6 or 7 songs together (Reuben had improvised vocals). Dain Bramage ended in March 1987 when Grohl quit without any warning to join Scream. Reuben and Smith tried to form a new band but Reuben later commented, "after you've spent a couple years with Dave Grohl as your drummer it's easy to feel like no other drummer exists".
