KID$ FOR CA$H no more walls 7" ep (1985)
1.same old thing
This one brings back some really positive memories for sure.
Kids for Cash were from Virginia, and had a strong 7 Seconds sound. I don't think the band did anything else after this kinda rare, and obscure ep. The sound really is melodic and posi. If your a metalhead you prolly won't be digging on this one "dude".
I ran into this ep totally by mistake in around 1987. I was home in Albany for Xmas or something from S.F., and had randomly heard a radio show by these two dudes on Siena College radio (88.3 WVCR). They played an entire side of the ep, then went on to inform me, the listener that the ep was, and had been sitting at Worlds records for a while, and that stupid hardcore punks needed to buy it, cos it was good. I borrowed my Moms car, and headed to the record store to see multiple copies of this(like 20). Back then one rarely thought of buying more than one copy of a record...even if it was only $2.75.
Years later I found out the D.J. on the radio that I had randomly heard was one of the singers of Wolfpack, and went on to become an Albany cop. A few more years went on, and he came into my comic book shop, and sold me a shit load of his punk records. I told him I found it humorous that a cop was selling me punk/hardcore records... He started showing me his tats. A Bunch of lazy crusty punks in the store were like "what the fuck is happening"?
