L.A. weekly writer - Falling James PICK OF THE WEEK!!!
When you sift through the ashy dust of time, it turns out that West L.A.'s Symbol 6 and Simi Valley's RF7 were two of the better punk bands of the early 1980s. Each was a major force in the cultural and geographical shift from the late-'70s Hollywood punk nexus to the louder, faster and more violent suburban hardcore scene of the '80s. Both groups dropped out of sight for years, and now they're enjoying considerably productive second lives by cranking out hard-charging new songs instead of just relying on the early classics. Powerful new Symbol 6 tunes like "Go" and "Napalm Love" are even fiercer and more sinister than their ancient Rodney on the Roq hits. - Falling James (L.A. Weekly)
