Maps Model American

Maps is a acronym for Model American Playing Secretly, a name this Bay Area band came up with to play in places they'd been banned due to their rowdy shows, and also because the band didn't own the rights to the name. In fact, they were taken to court and lost because they didn't have the money for legal fees. This was in 1999 and it was the death knell for the band. This disc contains their out-of-print LP, plus some bonus and live tracks, including covers of Bad Brains, 7 Seconds and Adolescents songs. Even though these guys were barely out of diapers in the early days of hardcore, that's the stuff that they're most influenced by and it shows in their sound. Fans of old school posi-core and youth crew will likely be impressed by Model American (Sessions)
