Secret Agent - s/t 7"

Returning with yet another Kevin Rips: stuff not found anywhere on the internet, stuff we gladly dig out of obscurity and rip for your knowledge and listening pleasure and to curb your hunger for it.

Secret Agent hailed from the same scene and era in Toronto that spawned the likes of labelmates Smallmouth and our major favourites Pecola. (In this case, I'm talking about Skull Geek records and the very early stuff on Teenage USA). Secret Agent weren't quite as Slint-y as Smallmouth, nor near as innovative as Pecola, instead running more in a vein of something more similar to Jawbreaker.

I've had this 7" tucked away for years. The thing about it is, I've kept pulling it out all this time. Just two great lost Canadian punk songs, plain and simple. Doesn't have to be a game-changer.
