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.

I remember the only time I saw Trusty. They came down to Dallas in '90 or '91 and played a loveable dive called Slipped Disc Studios. They were a solid live band, but for some reason my friends felt they needed to be heckled. Poor bastards got an ear full all night long. I never heard them after they moved to D.C., but I do remember them fondly from the one time I saw them. Thanks!

The Paul Years is well worth tracking down. It's mosty melodic hardcore with a couple of Minor Threat type songs. I might put up here or on SFRP soon. From what I've heard their sound changed a lot when they signed to Dischord.
