Faith - Subject To Change (Dischord Records 11) 1983
Well not a 7inch but could’ve been with only 8 songs. Been a fan of Faith since I first heard them on the split w/ Void. This 12inch EP is no exception, great listening right from start to end. Seems if you ask people if they like Faith you get alot of “never heard of them”, or “oh yeah, did they put something out after the split with Void?”. Ian’s brother was the singer for this band which also had Michael Hampton on guitar formerly of S.O.A..
Like other great D.C. records, this one is released after the band is broken up. Which is sad because this is a great record, not only because of its heavy, melodious (but not poppy, in fact punk) sound, but because there are some great personal, introspective lyrics here. Things you can really relate to.
