7 Seconds (band)
7 Seconds was an American hardcore punk band from Reno, Nevada. Formed on January 17, 1980, by two sets of brothers; the band has gone through numerous lineup changes over the subsequent years, with only Kevin Seconds and Steve Youth remaining constant members. The final lineup of 7 Seconds is Kevin Seconds, Steve Youth, Troy Mowat, Bobby Adams. 7 Seconds was formed on January 1980, by two sets of brothers. Asked about the origins of the band's name in a December 1982 interview with Flipside magazine, Kevin Seconds recalled: "... I was ordering The Dils single "198 Seconds of The Dils" from Bomp and I wrote it on a desk and the ink it said 97 Seconds. So we were looking for a name and we were looking at this racing book and it said 7 seconds and we said,'fuck it, must be an omen,' so we picked it. It's a short, intense name." This story evolved over time. In the February 2005 issue of AMP, in an article titled, "7 Seconds: 25 Years of Our Core", Kevin Seconds told this tale: "We were big fans of The Dils, they had this EP, 198 Seconds of The Dils and I was so in love with punk rock that I would just write album titles on my clothes.
This was still. We had this desk in this room we shared and I wrote'197 seconds of The Dils,' I miswrote the title. Over time, everything else faded, but the 7 Seconds part was there, I circled it, I thought it looked cool." In 1981, Munist and Menace left to form a new band called Section 8. 7 Seconds has floated across several genres of rock. The band's early releases were several EPs including 1982's Skins and Guts, most of which were re-released on the alt.music.hardcore and Old School compilation CDs. All three demos were released on a bootleg release named 7 Seconds - Hardcore Rules, 80-82, they appeared on the 1985 hardcore compilation Cleanse the Bacteria, in addition to numerous other compilations, such as Not So Quiet On the Western Front, Something to Believe In, Party or Go Home/We Got Power, Nuke Your Dink. They became associated with the Straight Edge movement and helped start the Youth Crew movement in 1984 with The Crew, their first full-length album, The Crew, was recorded in 1983-84 and released by BYO Records, as was its successor - the classic hardcore EP Walk Together Rock Together.
With the New Wind album, the band expanded its sound and style with audible elements of a sometimes quieter, more melodic and accessible sound. Many writers have credited this particular period of 7 Seconds' career as being influential on many pop punk and indie rock bands that came along much later. Subsequent LPs moved deeper into mainstream territory with a U2-like sound; the 7 Seconds album continued their musical experimentation. The band broke free in 1995 with The Message, moving back somewhat into their roots; the Music, The Message was released on Sony, the first release on a major label throughout the band's history. Earlier material was on various homegrown labels self-produced, or put out on Kevin Seconds own label, Positive Force Records, before BYO Records housed them. However, the band returned to an old-school hardcore sound in 1999 with the Good to Go album. 2005 came the release of Take It Back, Take It On, Take It Over! on SideOneDummy, completing the evolution back to their Hardcore roots.
7 Seconds is believed to be the first band to refer to themselves as hardcore. After their first show on March 2, 1980, in Newsletter NWIN/SPUNK No. 1 they described their band as hardcore new wave. Vocalist Kevin Seconds has gone on to have a lengthy solo career, becoming an important folk punk singer too, doing releases with people including Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio and Mike Scott of Lay It on the Line. Dim Menace's fist-brandishing scowl on the cover of the Skins, Brains, & Guts EP is one of the most iconic images in hardcore. Sacramento News & Review speaks at length of their influence in the positive hardcore movement and their positive effect on the punk culture. In May 2013 it was announced that 7 Seconds had signed to Rise Records, with plans to record a new 7" and a full-length album that summer in Sacramento. On March 20, 2018, 7 Seconds announced their breakup via their official Facebook page.

Punk rock in California
Since the late 1970s, California has had a thriving regional punk rock movement. It consists of bands from the Los Angeles, Orange County, Ventura County, San Diego, San Fernando Valley, San Francisco, Bakersfield, Alameda County, Lake Tahoe and Berkeley areas. Los Angeles had a strong glam rock scene in the early 1970s centered on the club Rodney Bingenheimer's English Disco, run by Rodney Bingenheimer, who as a disc jockey for KROQ's Rodney on the ROQ, did much to promote LA punk bands. Many figures from this earlier scene would play notable roles in the punk scene. In the mid-1970s from 1974 to 1975 a wave of proto-punk bands emerged from Los Angeles, including the Flyboys and Atomic Kid. Starting in 1976, following recent releases of recordings by punk bands such as the Ramones, a number of punk bands formed in the Los Angeles and Orange County area. Among these bands were the Germs, the Flesh Eaters, the Weirdos, the Controllers, the Deadbeats, the Skulls, the Angry Samoans, Agent Orange, the Dils, Black Randy and the Metrosquad, Catholic Discipline, the Go-Go's, the Alley Cats, Kommunity FK, the Screamers, the Dickies, X, the Zeros, the Bags, the Plugz, the Consumers, their successors, 45 Grave Many bands formed in the San Francisco Bay, including Crime, the Avengers, the Nuns, the Mutants, the Units, Negative Trend, the Offs and the Dead Kennedys.
California punk of this period was musically eclectic, the punk scene of the time included a number of bands whose sound crossed over to art/experimental punk, new wave, rockabilly and hard rock. In 1978 in Southern California, the first hardcore punk bands arose, including Middle Class, Black Flag, Vicious Circle, Fear, ANTI, the Circle Jerks. Hardcore bands and fans tended to be younger than the art punks of the older LA scene and came from the suburban parts of the Los Angeles area the South Bay and Orange County and San Diego; this resulted in a rivalry between the older artsy "Hollywood" scene and the hardcore "suburban", "surf punk", or "beach punk" scene. Those in the "Hollywood" scene disliked what they saw as the musical narrowness of hardcore and the violence associated with "suburban" punks, while the "suburban" punks looked down on what they perceived as the lack of intensity of older "Hollywood" bands and the fashion consciousness of "Hollywood" punks; the Penelope Spheeris documentary The Decline of Western Civilization, shot in early 1979 and early 1980, documents the period when the older LA punk scene was being taken over by hardcore and features performances by bands from both scenes.
Decline was filmed in part at punk shows sponsored and promoted by David Ferguson, who in 1979, formed CD Presents, a recording label that would record and promote a number of pioneering groups from the California punk scene. Ferguson and CD Presents organized New Wave 1980, the first festival gathering and showcasing punk bands from all over the West Coast. By 1979, hardcore had displaced the Hollywood scene and become the dominant expression called hardcore punk in both Northern and Southern California. By this time, many of the older punk bands had broken up or become inactive. A few, such as the Go-Go's, the Dickies, X, went on to mainstream success, while a few others, such as the Dickies, embraced hardcore completely. According to historian gaye Theresa Johnson the emergence of ethnic punk rock bands in Los Angeles was a result of double marginalization of individuals within the African-America and Latino communities during the late 1970s, she says some punk artists suggest that this double-maranilization was necessary for these groups to develop the "D.
I. Y." attitude associated with Punk Rock groups. These bands drew upon their working class experiences and sexual and racial identities in their music. Los Angeles' punk scene produced notable ethnic artist such as Alice Bag. Born Alicia Armendariz in 1958, Alice Bag, went on to become a member of punk rock groups Masque Era and the leader of The Bags. Bag is was one of the few female leaders in the Punk Rock scene in the 1980s. Bag says one of the things that inspired her to join the punk rock scene was being rejected by the leaders of her high school's Brown Berets club. Bags says the organization didn't think she was serious about civil rights issues because of her appearance. Chicano and Chicana artist like Bag and Los Crudos challenged the idea that Punk Rock was an white genre by incorporating Spanish lyrics into their music. Bag continues to participate in the Punk Rock scene four decades after her debut, making her first solo track in 2016. Bag continues to support the female punk rock scene in Los Angeles by interviewing and highlighting them on her website.
Queercore is a subculture of punk rock. Queercore can be traced back to Wisconsin punk band, Garbage, their song "queer" is considered by historians to be an open invitation to "queerness" despite no member of the band identifying as queer. Fanzines have played a crucial element in the development of queercore by allowing individuals to express their discontent with society's stereotypes of the LGBTQ community and challenging heteroness. Extra Fancy was one of the first post-alternative punk rock bands to be led by an gay individual, Brian Grillo. Grillo's intimidating look went against the stereotypical image of a gay male and was supposed to depict a radical homosexual enraged against machismo. Queer punk ws an important part of the Chicano punk subculture
Reagan Youth is an American punk rock band formed by singer Dave Rubinstein and guitarist Paul Bakija in Queens, New York in early 1980. Part of the anarcho-punk movement, the band members were committed political anarchists, their name critiques fervor for then-presidential frontrunner Ronald Reagan with the Hitler Youth who pledged blind allegiance to the Nazi regime during World War II. Their initial career lasted until 1990, singer Rubinstein committed suicide three years following a series of tragic events. In 2006, Bakija reformed the band with bassist Al Pike, drummer Javier Madriaga, several new members. An important group in the New York hardcore scene, they performed at CBGB and toured the U. S. extensively with other early punk bands such as the Dead Kennedys, Bad Brains, The Misfits and the Beastie Boys. Rubinstein and Bakija attended Forest Hills High School, the same as that of the Ramones, when they formed their band. After rehearsals under the name Pus with a varying rhythm section, the group changed its name to Reagan Youth shortly before playing its first gig on August 22, 1980, with bassist Andy Bryan and drummer Charlie Bonet.
Reagan Youth gained a following and were soon playing the punk clubs of Manhattan. Bakija's physics teacher shaved his head at CBGB's one night and after that became associated with the band, hauling equipment in his Dodge Dart. After the band recorded a four-song demo in 1981, Bryan was replaced by Al Pike. Bonet departed soon after, they signed to the R Radical imprint. After graduation and the release of their first record, the seven-song Youth Anthems for the New Order EP, they began touring nationally and were regulars at the Sunday afternoon hardcore matinee shows at CBGB. In 1984, prior to a significant US tour and Weissman left the group, with Pike going on to join a formative version of Glenn Danzig's group Samhain around this time, they were replaced by Rick Griffith respectively. Griffith was replaced in 1985 by Javier Madriaga, who has played drums in Lujuria, A. P. P. L. E. and Heart Attack. By the late 1980s the extensive touring had taken its toll on the group. Despite the many shows played and the large album sales for a hardcore punk band, they continually found themselves broke.
When Ronald Reagan left office in 1989, the band split up. Despite their decision to disband, the group attracted the attention of the burgeoning punk label New Red Archives, with whom they signed a two-album deal. New Red Archives first re-released Youth Anthems for the New World Order with three additional outtakes as the Volume 1 LP. In 1990, Bakija and Rubinstein recorded a final album, Volume 2. Dominicis went on to play guitar in seminal crust punk band Nausea while Bakija and Rubinstein continued making music together performing in a psychedelic rock group called House of God, derailed by Rubinstein's increasing drug and health problems. House of God recorded an unmixed version of which can be found online. By 1990 Rubinstein had become occasional dealer. In a conflict with another dealer, he was beaten with a baseball bat, requiring weeks of hospitalization. In 1993 he began dating Tiffany Bresciani; this same year, Rubinstein's mother was killed in a car accident. Soon after, he and Bresciani were on Houston Street looking for drugs.
A familiar customer in a truck hired the two of them disappeared. A few days police on Long Island stopped the same truck and discovered Bresciani's slain body in the back; the driver was Joel Rifkin convicted as a serial killer responsible for the murder of several prostitutes. Despondent over his continuing drug addiction and the loss of his girlfriend and deceased mother, Rubinstein committed suicide shortly thereafter. A cover of their song "Degenerated" was used as a song performed by The Lone Rangers, the fictional rock band portrayed in the 1994 comedy Airheads; this same year, New Red Archives issued A Collection of Pop Classics, which collected both Volume 1 and Volume 2 on a single CD. In 1998, New Red Archives released Live & Rare, a CD compiling highlights from New York City-area Reagan Youth sets from the early'80s with the Pike/Weinstein lineup, along with tracks from the band's initial demo and a brief demo for Volume 2. Pike and New Red Archives owner Nicky Garratt the guitarist for the British band the UK Subs, contributed liner notes for this release.
In 2002, plans for a reunion set at CBGB featuring Bakija and Bryan were shattered by Bryan's sudden, fatal heart attack. In the years following, Bakija played a few live sets of Reagan Youth material with other musicians. In 2006, Reagan Youth reformed around Bakija, Pike and new vocalist Pat McGowen, they intended only to play a single show, but opted to continue after the project "took on a life of its own." They played several additional local and regional tours, embarked on the "Resurrection Tour" in August 2007, with Boston hardcore band Mouth Sewn Shut. The band began expressing interest in writing and recording a third record, suggested that it would be about the life and times of Dave Insurgent; the band continued to tour extensively including their first shows in Germany and Belgium in 2008 and a European tour in 2009. In early 2010 McGowen left and after a year of inactivity the band resumed performed live in late 2010 with new singer Kenny Young, with drummer Mike Sab
Murphy's Law (band)
Murphy's Law is an American hardcore punk band from New York City, New York, United States, formed in 1982. While vocalist Jimmy Gestapo remains the only founding member of the band, in the past the line-up has consisted of former members of bands such as Skinnerbox, The Bouncing Souls, Mucky Pup, Dog Eat Dog, Hanoi Rocks, Agnostic Front, Cro-Mags, D Generation. Over the course of their career, Murphy's Law have released five full-length albums, the last of, released in 2001; the eponymous debut album features fast paced, short songs with more mosh sections, but they managed to blend in some laid-back Californian punk sounds and blues into the stomping New York hardcore anthems. Some of the songs on this album could be credited as an influence on the burgeoning thrash metal scene which had taken to incorporating elements of New York hardcore into their sound and general song structure – for instance, Anthrax and S. O. D. Whose Speak English or Die album predated this release, they shared a common interest in the lyrical themes of drinking and partying with the likes of Boston hardcore band, Gang Green – another trait which separates them from the sociopolitical leanings of fellow NYHC bands.
On albums they diversified with experiments into ska. The album spawned a few live favorites which were devised to "get the party going" – "Fun", "Beer", "Care Bear" being just a small selection – but it had a track which caused some controversy with "Skinhead Rebel", it was seen by some sectors of the community as a fascist infused song. The album includes a cover version of Iggy Pop's "I Got A Right". Back with a Bong was released in 1989 on Profile Records and subsequently re-released on Another Planet Records in 1994 with the previous self-titled album on the same disc, it came three years after the previous album and the band had undergone somewhat of a transformation with Jimmy Gestapo the only remaining member. Alex Morris had been replaced on guitar by Todd Youth – of fellow New York City hardcore bands, Agnostic Front and Warzone, of Danzig. Chuck Valle replaced Pete Martinez on bass, Doug E. Beans took over drumming duties from Petey Hines. In 1989, Murphy's Law opened for the Red Hot Chili Peppers on their Mother's Milk tour.
Murphy's Law ushered in the'90s with a reinvigorated blast of their debauchery-laced brand of comedic punk. Stylistically, Murphy's Law made quite a jump on The Best of Times; the band did dabble in skacore long before it exploded, but was always pretty much a flat-out hardcore unit in the'80s. The Best of Times finds Jimmy Gestapo and friends combining funk, reggae and hardcore into their own distinct brew, shedding any dogmatic restrictions applied to the standards of their genre in the'80s. Production by Fishbone's John "Norwood" Fisher and Philip "Fish" Fisher lends authenticity and diversity to The Best of Times, as does the added instrumentation by several members of Fishbone. Covers of James Brown and Stevie Wonder provide some insight into Murphy's Law's sometimes controversial and misunderstood affiliation with the skinhead faction putting to rest any allegations that racism or fascism have anything to do with the band's outlook. Although the group manages to shed this stereotype and expand musically on The Best of Times, the subject matter doesn't otherwise stray too far from earlier work.
Songs about pot, beer and cars showcase the glorious immaturity and quest for fun that pretty much define Murphy's Law. When the band does get serious, which isn't often, it's in the interest of unity and friendship; the title track is a fan tribute, thanking a small but loyal group of followers for the support that's enabled Murphy's Law to continue the party. The ska-tinged but heavy "1%" revels in the outcast-minded punk rock ethos, giving nod to those who embrace the good and bad of surfing the fringe of culture and society. Classic Murphy's Law rage surfaces on "Harder Than Who," an attack on the mindless aggression and competition that sometimes rule the hardcore scene. Murphy's Law collected a bunch of stomping and anthem style hardcore punk songs for this, it is first studio album in five years since The Best Of Times. The personnel differed from previous efforts; as with prior albums, the lyrics revolve around smoking and partying. A blur of melodic hardcore gives way near the end to some saxophone-led ska.
Dedication was released by Another Planet on March 19, 1996. The label had picked up the rights to their previous material from Profile Records and in 1994 had released a split CD with their self-titled and Back With A Bong albums on the same disc; the album was produced by Daniel Rey who had worked with The Ramones, The Misfits, Boston hardcore punk band, Gang Green – with whom Murphy's Law share a lyrical penchant. He wrote one of the songs for this album, "Green Bud." It follows The Best Of Times. The album Dedicated, released in 1996, was dedicated to former bass player, Chuck Valle, killed in a knife related incident in 1994, his picture appears on the back page of the CD inlay and a picture of a tattoo inscribed with the words "In Memory of Chuck" appears on the jewel case inlay. The band did not record another full-length album until The Party's Over in 2001, but had plenty of singles and split EPs with other bands in between. In 2002 Reflex/Wolfpack Records released a European vinyl pressing of The Party's Over.

MusicBrainz is a project that aims to create an open data music database, similar to the freedb project. MusicBrainz was founded in response to the restrictions placed on the Compact Disc Database, a database for software applications to look up audio CD information on the Internet. MusicBrainz has expanded its goals to reach beyond a compact disc metadata storehouse to become a structured open online database for music. MusicBrainz captures information about artists, their recorded works, the relationships between them. Recorded works entries capture at a minimum the album title, track titles, the length of each track; these entries are maintained by volunteer editors. Recorded works can store information about the release date and country, the CD ID, cover art, acoustic fingerprint, free-form annotation text and other metadata; as of 21 September 2018, MusicBrainz contained information about 1.4 million artists, 2 million releases, 19 million recordings. End-users can use software that communicates with MusicBrainz to add metadata tags to their digital media files, such as FLAC, MP3, Ogg Vorbis or AAC.
MusicBrainz allows contributors to upload cover art images of releases to the database. Internet Archive provides the bandwidth and legal protection for hosting the images, while MusicBrainz stores metadata and provides public access through the web and via an API for third parties to use; as with other contributions, the MusicBrainz community is in charge of maintaining and reviewing the data. Cover art is provided for items on sale at Amazon.com and some other online resources, but CAA is now preferred because it gives the community more control and flexibility for managing the images. Besides collecting metadata about music, MusicBrainz allows looking up recordings by their acoustic fingerprint. A separate application, such as MusicBrainz Picard, must be used for this. In 2000, MusicBrainz started using Relatable's patented TRM for acoustic fingerprint matching; this feature allowed the database to grow quickly. However, by 2005 TRM was showing scalability issues as the number of tracks in the database had reached into the millions.
This issue was resolved in May 2006 when MusicBrainz partnered with MusicIP, replacing TRM with MusicDNS. TRMs were phased out and replaced by MusicDNS in November 2008. In October 2009 MusicIP was acquired by AmpliFIND; some time after the acquisition, the MusicDNS service began having intermittent problems. Since the future of the free identification service was uncertain, a replacement for it was sought; the Chromaprint acoustic fingerprinting algorithm, the basis for AcoustID identification service, was started in February 2010 by a long-time MusicBrainz contributor Lukáš Lalinský. While AcoustID and Chromaprint are not MusicBrainz projects, they are tied with each other and both are open source. Chromaprint works by analyzing the first two minutes of a track, detecting the strength in each of 12 pitch classes, storing these 8 times per second. Additional post-processing is applied to compress this fingerprint while retaining patterns; the AcoustID search server searches from the database of fingerprints by similarity and returns the AcoustID identifier along with MusicBrainz recording identifiers if known.

On 20 January 2006, the first commercial venture to use MusicBrainz data was the Barcelona, Spain-based Linkara in their Linkara Música service. On 28 June 2007, BBC announced that it has licensed MusicBrainz's live data feed to augment their music Web pages; the BBC online music editors will join the MusicBrainz community to contribute their knowledge to the database. On 28 July 2008, the beta of the new BBC Music site was launched, which publishes a page for each MusicBrainz artist.
