Album Review: Kevin Seconds – “Off Stockton”

Kevin Seconds’ special brand of broody, vaguely rockabilly-esque acoustic (as is the wont for your traditional punk frontman’s solo efforts) hits a more optimistic peak with this latest full-length.

A recent interview that I conducted with the man himself here touches upon the reasons behind his newest lease on life: Kevin and Allyson Seconds (who continues to provide backup guitar and vocals for this EP) were struggling to reconnect after the closure of their duly run café, The True Love Coffee House. Once Kevin was able to slow himself down long enough to listen to his wife’s concerns more (and honor them,) “Off Stockton” emerged like a phoenix from the rubble. Kevin points to “O Let Me Try,” in particular, as that moment of clarity for him, when he knew that he and Ally were officially over the hump.

Kevin also leaves the fuck-ups on the album – his trademark – which remind us all not to take life too fucking seriously. “Off Stockton” is a nice addition to your more mellow collection, and you can laugh along as he instructs us to “Get these idiots to sing” in “Run Run Run.”

The album tells the man’s personal story beautifully, and you can’t help but relate. Kevin still keeps the 7 Seconds vibe alive with “Broken And The Bend” with lyrics like “We’re fighting people with our voices and our fists, but none of expect much victory tonight.”

Because Kevin is careful to keep the vibe consistent, I am confident that any fan will be happy to have a copy of this LP in their collection.

4/5 Stars

Kevin Seconds talks work ethic, upcoming 7 Seconds album, getting old, the celebrity mystique and more

Kevin Seconds, of the iconic punk band 7 Seconds, has been a crucial contributor to the punk scene since 1979. With one legendary band secured, Kev has kept himself busy during 7 Seconds’ downtimes with project after project – Drop Acid, Mustard, 5’10”, The Altruistics and Postively Ventilate, plus Go National and Ghetto Moments (with wife Allyson Seconds of the band Bag of Kittens) to name a few. With several splits and now his fourth release as a solo artist under way, (“Off Stockton” drops on February 18th on Rise Records) Kev is unarguably one of the steadiest workers in the business. Aside from all that, Kev and Allyson (who ran a café together for a few years) recently Kickstarted a label (Cheap As Nothing Records.) Kev also podcasts on occasion and is very active on social networking.

With such little time to breathe, Dying Scene was very grateful to Kevin for being generous with his time for this interview, and once I was done wishing a pox on him for informing me that he was couched in a warm and brightly lit café as I shivered in my snow boots, we got down to discussing his insane work ethic, manipulative pets, getting old, the celebrity mystique and more. Check out our full conversation below.
