Model American

(Distillers,Nerve Agents)

Sessions 28

Released on June 4, 2002

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Do you remember Model American? If you don't, the upcoming MAPS release is going to jog your memory. Forced to change their name in a court of law, the original self-titled full length by Model American will be re-issued under the MAPS moniker (Model American Playing Secretly). The band went by this name when they were banned from playing certain clubs, enabling them to play at them again. Not only will you find the same timeless hardcore punk rock that was on the original CD, but you will also get three extra unreleased bonus demo tracks, plus two live cover songs. Although now defunct, these guys were one of the best hardcore punk bands to come out of the bay area, this is a second chance to find out why. Features members of The Distillers (Hellcat/Epitaph) and Nerve Agents (Hellcat/Epitaph/Revelation).

Maps (Modern American Playing Secretly ) give you a great dose of a long forgotten style of aggressive, yet melodic hardcore. Cover songs by: the Bad Brains, Adolescents and 7 Seconds help too, plus a few live tracks. This disc kicks ass! An absolute must for fans of: Good Riddance, Nerve Agents, Redemption 87 and Kill Your Idols.

Absolutely great record! But how do you know? Well, for starters, only 8 of the 21 tracks go over the 2 minute mark! That is always a good sign. I heard a few of these songs on myspace, and knew I had to get the record. I heard that Andy Outbreak from the Distillers was in the band, and I knew it was golden. Comparable to early AFI, ala "Answer That..." and "Very Proud...". So what you have here are 14 tracks that were originally for the album, then 2 covers, "Banned in D.C." by the Bad Brains, and "Die Hard Youth" by 7Seconds. Then there 5 bonus tracks after that which include 3 more originals, and then 2 live tracks which are also covers, "No Way" by the Adolescents, and "Die Hard Youth" again. Every song on this record will get you so pumped. I wish I could have seen this band live. Speaking of them live, there are some flyers on the inside of the case of shows they did. Some bands they played with include Ignite, Good Riddance, Redemption 87 to name a few. The lyrics on this record are overall really positive and are about standing up for what you believe,"Don't Give Up", "Self Control", not wanting to grow up and be an adult, "Adult World", and hatred for the police, "No Remorse". I don't know who the guitarists and bassist went on to play with, but Andy Outbreak (drums), and Tim Presley (vocals) now play together in Darker My Love. The whole record clocks in at 39:49 and it comes with a lyric book and some rad pictures. I wish they had been together longer and/or put out another record. Shit is fucking genious. There are like 2 slow songs on the record. And by slow I mean not the forbidden beat at the very beginning. But they will still make you want to smash everything with a bat and put your head through a wall. Please buy this now!

Amazing band! Amazing album! don't need to say much more than that!...but i will. This is the best pre-Nerve Agents band in my opinion and features Tim Presley on vocals and Andy Outbreak on Drums. If you like fast, melodic old school hardcore/punk you'll love this. They also do some awesome covers including Bad Brains and 7 Seconds! This is a must have for any Nerve Agents fans.

For fans of the Nerve Agents, AFI, and Redemption 87. Kick ass cd. Whatever happened to Tim Presley? I haven't seen him since the Nerve Agents broke up. Good positive East Bay Hardcore.

Nice stuff. Good East Bay punk rock...hardcore? I like it alot, and to boot it has two members of the now deceased Nerve Agents. Andy on drums and Tim on vocals. Sounds kind of like Nerve Agents with out the dark influence...almost Redemption 87ish, but no where near as great. Still a nice pick up if you enjoy AFI, Nerve Agents, Redemption 87, or really any old so-cal punk like The Adolescents or Agent Orange.

This is great hardcore punk played oldschool-style! For fans of Kid Dynamite and Nerve Agents, you will love this! There is also a great cover of a Bad Brains tune.
