Trusty - A Name To Depend On 7" EP (Soma Records 1989)
Trusty were a punk band from Arkansas who became Dischord's first non-D.C. signing. However this post isn't about how they changed their sound into a cross between The Spindoctors and Big Drill Car. This E.P. has a definite hardcore lean and Flex claims that there is a straight edge lean on this E.P. Lyrically I don't really hear it. However this debut EP does bring the early works of bands like 7 Seconds and Dag Nasty to mind and I bet these guys listened to their share of Gorilla Biscuits too before recording this slab of vinyl.
These songs later appeared on an album called The Paul Years which Truant records only pressed 1000 vinyl copies but later released the album on CD.
