7 SECONDS: Take It Back, Take It On, Take It Over!:: CD

Mar 22, 2007

Man! When I was in high school, I could not get away from this band. Everybody that I hung out with played The Crew and Walk Together, Rock Together. It was annoying in the way the stoners played Van Halen and Led Zeppelin all the time. The first time I saw this Reno band was when they played their first LA gig. I remember it being at some shitty old theater in a bad part of town. I remember them being good enough that I would listen to my brother’s copy of the Skins, Brains & Guts 7”. I would also go see them many a time when they came in town after that. But when they got all rock at the same time Youth Brigade became the Brigade, I was turned off. A few years back I got a copy of the Good to Go CD and they went back to their old stylings. This CD continues on with their early traditions and if you are a fan of their early material, this should not disappoint. Kevin Seconds leaves guitars duties to another but does play with original members Steve Youth and Troy Mowat. Before you go write them off as another old band reforming to relive their pasts, give this a listen. I was hesitant on their previous and the current release but I was surprised each time how much I liked their current music
