The Passed: Someone (1990)

If you believed mainstream media morons post Nirvana, you’d have thought that punk died and then miraculously reappeared in the early nineties. Of course, not only is this is the stupidest thing to be heard this side of a potable quotable Pat Roberts; it is also an insult to everyone involved in the scene at the time. Just to really stick the point in, The Passed, like countless other bands showed the underground was alive and well in 1990 when they recorded this awesome slab of melodic punk fun. As usual, the mainstream just didn't notice.

I don’t know much about this band, apart from the fact that they actually cared about the world and recorded in Pennsylvania. Other than that, I have no clue. If anyone knows, please leave a comment.

1. Free Our Lives / The Price / Blind Into Blind
2. Someone / Hiding In Our Pockets

Man, this brings back memories, but not quite enough of them...

I was living in North Dakota in the early '90s, and I used to correspond with the kid who put this out, but I can't remember his name. I wanna think that there was a connection to Edgewise, maybe someone's brother? It was the first record he'd put out, and he was stoked on it and sent me a copy of it.

Useless information? Well, maybe this'll trigger someone else with better memory than me.

At the time I think I didn't know what to make of this 7"; it was part of a wave of hardcore bands with dudes who sang rather than hollered, and I was still all-youth-crew-all-the-time. But it sounds cool, today, and I thank you for posting it!

I have a test press of this, but not the actual release—that's how I found this post, by googling the record to see what I could find out about it, since I didn't remember anything about them, or where/how I got the test press. Thanks for the post :)
