Brent Liles Dead at 43

PLACENTIA – Officials on Saturday identified Brent Liles of Fullerton, former bass guitarist in one of the region’s most influential punk rock bands, Social Distortion, as the bicyclist killed by a big rig on Thursday. Liles played bass on the group’s groundbreaking “Mommy’s Little Monster” recording in 1983 and went on to play with other well-known Orange County punk acts such as the group Agent Orange. He was 43.
“Brent was a fun-loving guy who approached his bass playing with a lot of enthusiasm and that made him a lot of fun to be around,” said Frank Agnew, a fellow musician and friend. Liles, wearing casual clothing, was riding a small dirt bicycle westbound on Orangethorpe Avenue just after 11:30 a.m. Thursday, California Highway Patrol officials said. As he entered the crosswalk at the Orange (57) Freeway, a big rig carrying a trailer turned right onto the on-ramp and accelerated, hitting Liles. He was pronounced dead at the scene, officials said.


Big bucks to cum…

Bad Brains – Pay To Cum original pressing just went for $1,455.00 US/ $1,707.73 CDN/ 737.724 GBP/ 1,914.05 TND/ 1,816.74 CHF no matter what part of the world youre from thats alot of cash for a 7inch slab of wax. I find it hard shelling out 30 bucks for a used single, whats the most you would shell out for a single? In the meantime, go listen to the Pay To Cum single for free here.


Pictures speak a thousand words…

I never wanted to do this but this one guy has hit me with a low blow when it comes to my integrity and my dedication and hard work I have put into what you see here. I found this comment on another blog and at first thought just to ignore it. I told myself I would never bother with this kind of garbage but, pictures speak.

I recently sold most of my record collection due for financial reasons. I ripped and scanned everything before I sold it though and a good amount of it is available in my Soulseek folder. The other day I noticed 7inchpunk had a post on the Queer Pills 7″ and the cover looked awfully familiar. Indeed it was my exact copy that they downloaded and uploaded to their site. If it wasn’t for the hand stamped cover an argument could be made that it was a different one, but it is EXACTLY the same, even the rip of the record.


This is Style?

Umm..ok, this has to be the coolest jacket ever made…so say the ‘style’ people. This has got to be the most ridiculous jacket I have ever seen, if you are seen wearing this jacket in public we should be able to rip it from your body and shit on it. The same company also sells jackets with old gig flyers plastered all over it, but of course they use their ‘wit’ and change up the band names with their company’s name. What has this world become? Check out some Misfits ‘style’….

1 year!

Thanks to everyone that has supported us in our efforts in bringing back the old to the young. 7inchpunk was started with the first and only Urban Waste single one year ago today. The site was started to bring back the old singles of the days gone by, and to give the younger vistors (and older) a chance to hear what they might of missed. We thank all the people that have ever visited us, posted a comment, posted a single, gave a shit, became a daily vistor, bought a t-shirt, clicked on a sponsor, sent us an email, and even the people who hate what we do…its all good!
