7 Seconds


Where to start with a band that has experienced the longevity that 7 Seconds has without making this post way too lengthy? Everyone probably already knows that the first 2 7"s, The Crew, Walk Together Rock Together, and New Wind (in my opinion) are all awesome. There was that period (Soulforce Revolution, Praise, Ourselves) that represented a real misstep towards a U2ish college rock thing that I didn't really care for (although I haven't heard these records in a long time). The early 90s saw them return to their original sound and their new album will definitely please the old school fans (yes, they have a new album). All of the above is readily available as far as I know so i'll try to post something that isn't-
The 1980 7" was released with a fanzine in the early 90s and features songs from 1980, some without Kevin Seconds on vocals. It never seems to appear in band discographies so i'm not sure if they approved of its release or not-

The 1980 ep came with a thick fanzine that we bought at a 7 Seconds show in 1993 in Chicago. We bought it from Dim Menace, the original singer and the guy who's face is on the cover of the Skins, Brains, & Guts 7" so it's gotta be legit. Ironically, the zine it came with does nothing but bash MRR on their hypocrisy on almost every page.

Thanks for the info about the EP, does anyone know how many demo cassettes there were?
