I doubt that anyone here needs a primer on Southern California's '80s straight edge heroes, right? This 1984 demo dishes out 10 blistering numbers with all of the fury that made their debut LP a complete classic combined with the raw purity that can only come from a demo. Sure, the lyrics can be distracting, even laughable at times (not a judgement on straight edge as a genre or a lifestyle, just an honest observation about the "after school special" nature of the words to most of the songs), but there is undeniable power in songs like "Sober" and their anthem "Straight And Alert." Just four years after this demo, UNIFORM CHOICE plopped out their pathetic attempt at a sellout record, and quickly vanished from the punk radar, but thankfully some enterprising label cranked out these demos as a double EP to remind us what they had once been. More 7 SECONDS than MINOR THREAT, this demo is a clear standout in the relatively limited world of Southern California straight edge hardcore. No cover...just the lyric sheet (complete with what may be a cigarette burn) for your enjoyment/entertainment.
