7 Seconds Good To Go

Ok, confess to being a HUGE 7 Seconds fan. Love their early demos, Eps, and their first two albums. Good 'ole Reno hardcore. They played alot around my neck of the woods back in the day. At one time, some of the members relocated to Sacramento and they called their brand of hardcore Skeeno. In the later 80's they kind of lost me and the plot around New Wind and I did not pay much attention to them. I remember MRR saying that New Wind sound like 7 Seconds trying to sound like U2. Wow. Anyways I bought their Take It Back, Take It On, Take It Over which was pretty damn good, and I thought, uhhh is there anything that I might need to check out of theirs. I bought the rest of their catalouge and I have to say that there are some pretty damn good albums. Out of all of them, this by far the best. I bought this the other day and I have not stopped playing it. Like Minor Threat, 7 Seconds were influenced by The Ruts, and Sham 69 just as much as other bands from the early days of hardcore here in the States. Oh did I tell you how much I dig this release??? Unlike Angry I am not sooo prolific in the posting department so this might be all from me this week. Though, have no worries, Angry is doing a fine job!!
