Here's a neat little item. In 2006, Blacknoise Records, run by F-Minus and Leftover Crack's Brad Logan, released a four-way split 7" that seemed to be more of a collector's item than a sampler disc. Featuring three Crack Rock Steady-affiliated bands and one odd ball, the record almost has a cohesive.


Here's a neat little item. In 2006, Blacknoise Records, run by F-Minus and Leftover Crack's Brad Logan, released a four-way split 7" that seemed to be more of a collector's item than a sampler disc. Featuring three Crack Rock Steady-affiliated bands and one odd ball, the record almost has a cohesive purpose but then falls short at the end not because of song quality, but because of theme.

The set opens with Morning Glory's "All My Friends," which exhibits the musical direction the band took on their Whole World Is Watching EP. Ezra's voice soars over top of some catchy hooks. The Leftover Crack track might be the most interesting tune featured as it features the band halfway through its transformation that began with the first LP and completed on the recent Citizen Fish split release. While that jumpy ska beat still lingers, the band is much smoother sounding ¡ la Side B of Fuck World Trade. The departed F-Minus plays a 7 Seconds cover in the blunt-hitting yet sharp sounding unique F-Minus style that no one seems to be able to replicate. The EP rounds itself out with an interesting choice, "I Don't Know" by Bent Outta Shape. While the BOS song is some good, Clash-inspired punk, it's much more lighthearted than its predecessors and throws a loop after three songs of nastier punk.

With the inclusion of the three related bands and then Bent Outta Shape, the intended direction of this release is somewhat muddled. Surely a live Stza acoustic performance, a rare INDK tune, or even something from the Crack Rock Steady Siete could have been unearthed. So, while the music on the record is good, one can't help but wonder what's the purpose of it. Of course, with all of Stza's nihilistic lyrics, that's kind of fitting: There is no purpose.

I enjoyed this. F-Minus rule because 7Seconds rule

ilovescott (September 24, 2007)

so because a split has bands that don't sound exactly the same, it gets a worse score? maybe it was just unclear writing, but thats ridiculous

Sick_Nick (September 23, 2007)

I got this on crack white vinyl, I think its number was 752 but I could be wrong.

Wasen't only a 1000 made?

Bent Outta Shape is the best band on here, what the fuck are you talking about?

Tobin_Ownlife (September 21, 2007)

Was it ever advertised as strictly having a crack rock steady sound? Not to my recolection. The Morning Glory song is great and it features Ezra using the drum machine again. The Bent Outta Shape song is actually a close second in my opinion. I am not sure you can get this anymore.

I've had this for a long time, but whenever I'm looking through my records I either ignore it or just look at it for a second then decide to find something else.

No score since I've never heard it.

F-Minus is so fucking good. Srsly.

TheOneTrueBill (September 21, 2007)

Someone send me the F-Minus song so I don't have to own anything with Leftover Crack on it.

GlassPipeMurder (September 21, 2007)
