97a - Society´s running on empty

This is a spontaneous post. I was browsing through my record shelf, wondering what I would like to hear on the upcoming weekend trip with the adolescents I´m in charge of. Then I grabbed the "Society´s running on empty.." 12" of the mighty 97a. I thought "Hell yeah, haven´t heard this bastard for a while. Let´s check the net to get it digital". Strangely all I found was talking about their Eps and the "Abandon future" Lp. That´s kinda inapprehensible to me because this 12" is at least as good as their previous stuff. It´s even faster and aggressive the their early stuff. What I love most about 97a is that they made my days in a time where shitty Youth Crew hardcore bored me to death (1997 - 1999). This was an isle of political high speed thrash in a sea of positive mama´s boys´ hardcore. No slow shit here, always full speed. 17 songs in 13 minutes! So it was like a duty to digitalize my record and upload it for you and me.
There has been a reunion in 2006 but no new output since then. Check out their Myspace side for further infomations on that issue an even a new demo song. This is how many bands would like to sound nowadays. Check out this pioneering thrash sound from 1999. Furious stuff...
