Instead of sitting home on this rainy night and putting my time into something productive to the future of my record label, I have sat here for hours toying with a new program on my computer. What type of program you might ask? Well one that I can transfer audio from my cassette deck, 4 track, and my record player. Yup, it's official, I have somewhat figured this out. I know, I know, I'm always a few years behind everyone else... big fuckin' deal. Anyway, this was my first go at this so please let me know how the sound quality of this 7" is and any suggestions anyone has. You can now expect tons of 7"s and demos to get posted so let's all clap our hands in excitement.
Ok, down to the dirt. This 7" has always been one of my favorites for it's rawness and simplicity. I picked this up around 15 years ago now (probably in 1991) and I have seriously only come across one other person who owned this and had even heard of this band. I have never been able to obtain any information at all about them so I'm hoping that someone reading this can shed some light on this band.
The band is INITIAL REACTION and judging by their address in the insert they were from Alexandria, VA. Members included: Josh Woods - guitar, Seth Ford Young - vocals, Ponch Sanchez - drums, & Tom Gorton - bass. Whether or not these guys were in other bands or went on to form other bands, I have no idea. None of the names really stood out to me at the time. They thank bands like: Zero Tolerance, Gut Instinct, Outburst, Four Walls Falling, Release, Turning Point, Step Aside and others. So that can kind of give you the time frame from when they were around. The record label that released this was from Arlington, VA and was called Cornerstone Productions. Well enjoy these tracks and like I said, feel free to comment on the quality of these mp3s as I hope to learn more about transferring this stuff for all of us to enjoy.
