MIDDLE CLASS - OUT OF VOGUE (1978.)


Okay - THIS RECORD WAS WAY AHEAD IT'S TIME! No - caps lock is not accidental! For fuck sake, these guys are fast, lucid, angry and clever in all that! I really need to say thanks again to Dronemful - the guy that forwarded me this band. Thank you men! Okay, I must get a grip - this description is going nowhere, but - I AM SO FUCKING EXCITED ABOUT THIS BAND! (:D)
Okay...
Middle Class, formed in 1976. in Santa Ana, California, were definitely one of the first hardcore punk bands in history. Debate continues to this day as to whether Middle Class were the first hardcore band or if Black Flag or Bad Brains were. (It is unlikely that Bad Brains were aware of the Middle Class, however, as they were unknown outside of California.) Their sound evolved from being a blistering, shouted, arty version of punk which would be extremely influential to the hardcore sound that would emerge in the years following their first release, the 1978 "Out Of Vogue" 7 inch (that I am giving you today). This record featured the title track along with three other songs. I managed even to find lyrics for Out Of Vogue song, that goes like this:
Sounds just an overdub
Hate is just a fashion show
(not sure this one)
The hate it starts and never ends

We dont need we get our fill
Its esoteric overkill
Its a shiny new aesthetic
Get us out of vogue

We dont need your magazines
We dont need you fashion show
We dont need your tv
We dont want to know

We dont need we get our fill
Its esoteric overkill
Its a shiny new aesthetic
Get us out of vogue
And remember - this 7'' record is from 1978.!!

Track list:
1. Out of Vogue
2. You Belong
3. Situations
4. Insurgence
