THIRSTY AND MISERABLE
February 22nd, 2014 by Tim
1981. Mabuhay Gardens in San Francisco. Black Flag invited 7 Seconds to play with them. The night I met Henry in person. He even “X’ed” Steve Youth and I up before the gig.

7 SECONDS REISSUES
July 30th, 2013 by Larry
Missed out on these back in the day? Ebay prices a little to salty for you? If so, LifeLine Records has you covered.
On September 10th LifeLine Records will be releasing the first three 7 Seconds EP’s: ‘Skins, Brains & Guts,’ ‘Committed For Life’ and ‘Blasts From the Past’. Each record will be released in its original 7″ format.
All three of these 7″s have been out of print for many years and has been bootleggged over the years as well. Now the records are being properly re-issued.
Each release will pay tribute to the original first pressing, using the original art and include the original insert that later pressings had lost. As a bonus, each record will include a retrospective of each release written by Kevin Seconds. There will be limited color vinyl available for pre-orders starting August 15th!

I’m sure the copy quoted below was prepared before the addition of The Almighty JUDGE to the bill. It looks like Joe has put together another incredible weekend of Hardcore revelry. —Ed DCXX
Lets get excited about Sick Of It All finally playing TIH!!! Returning to TIH after a few years off is our friends in Ceremony. We will also have annual fan favorites Cold World and Wisdom In Chains keeping the PAHC scene on top at TIH. H20, Bane, Ringworm and Rival Mob can’t seem to say no TIH after the last 3 years have been great sets for those bands.
Defeater is making their TIH Debut while No Redeeming Social Value is performing a 25th anniversary set with the return of Mike Dixon, original part of the vocal duo. This is not a reunion but the band hasn’t performed with Mike since ’97. NYHC legends Absolution are set to show the new generation what the Old School has to offer. This year’s fest has plenty of other planned activities that will be disclosed in early June. In the meantime – get your tickets now. —TIHC Crew
THE AUCTIONS OF GORILLA BISCUITS DRUMMER, LUKE ABBEY
February 4th, 2013 by Tim
Every once in awhile, we here at DCXX are given the opportunity to shed some extra light on situations that we consider worthy. When Gorilla Biscuits drummer, Luke Abbey, reached out to us looking for a little assistance on selling some records, we were more than happy to help. Aside from the fact that Luke’s been dealing with a pretty significant injury and could use the extra money, we knew some of our readers would be more than interested in what Luke has to offer.
In addition to helping Luke with his auctions, we also managed to coordinate an interview with him. Expect in the very near future, a major interview with the guy that delivered the beats for bands like Warzone, Gorilla Biscuits and a handful of other legendary New York City Hardcore bands. I think it’s safe to say, we have high hopes for this one.
Now check out what Luke has to say regarding his auctions. –Tim DCXX
A few days ago, I contacted Tim from Double Cross to ask if he would mind allowing me to post a collection of my own personal records and a few t-shirts on the Livewire message board in order to deal with my current and ensuing medical costs. He not only agreed to that, but was gracious enough to offer to run a full post on Double Cross in order to bring increased attention to my sale.
I’ve included absolutely every record I hope to sell – if it’s not listed, I don’t have it. All are in good playing condition and contain whatever lyric sheets were originally included – except where noted. They are all 1st pressings with a few exceptions which I’ve noted as well. The only drawback to any of these as far as I can tell, is that many of the jackets are distressed to some degree. That being said, nothing is in terrible condition, torn, or severely flawed. They’ve just got a bit of character. As for the t-shirts, they’ve been worn before but are neither torn nor altered, and are in wearable condition.
Here is the link to the ebay pages where the auctions can be found. If anyone has any additional questions or would like additional photos, I’ll do my best to oblige.
My seller name is yebba72.
Additionally, I will respond to as many questions or requests as possible at the following email:
However, as I mentioned above, please respect the fact that I’ve nothing further to sell than what’s listed, nor am I interested in any trades.
Auction Schedules and Photos
Here is the list, all first pressings except where noted:
So thanks to all of you who decide to bid on any of these records or t-shirts and lend some support in the process. And of course, my gratitude goes to Tim who has helped me out beyond measure.
Take care all,

WE’RE GONNA FIGHT
May 23rd, 2012 by Gordo
SV: Why do you wear the black makeup under your eyes?
Kevin: A couple of years back, it was a crew thing in Reno. A couple of kids would wear black under their eyes and it didn’t mean anything, it was just a Reno thing. We did it and I’m like the only one that does it anymore. I’ve stuck with it because I just like it. Everybody thinks I’m promoting football or something and it has nothing to do with that. I just do it.
-As told to Al Quint/Suburban Voice #13, 1984.
