The Seize – Everybody Dies E.P. 7″


I think The Seize’s first 7″ Why? is more well known. Right? Anyway this is just as ridiculous great as their debut. Take note of the year: 1982. UK82? Well I think most of the records I’ve heard lumped into the UK82 genre sound pretty lame and stereotypic. Like you try to sound and look so much punk that it becomes a farce. The Seize on the other hand has a quite unique sound: amateurish but fueled with great ideas and a great vocalist that sound harsh and desperate. Almost like Steve Ignorant of Crass. Spin, enjoy or don’t.

    Have that 7″ and their first one.There were many collectable 7″s from this period which if you were into punk rather than post-punk(whatever that was)or mod revivalist thingie,were great to listen to.The Ignerents were another great band of the time.This one’s ace!!!

    I like to think of these guys as a cheaper version of Stiff Little Fingers. The singer’s got the same kind of desperation. A few years ago I didn’t know what seize meant and thought the name was meant to be read as Disease, just spelled funny/ alternative…

    thanx for the share as ever, have to agree with the UK82 label – generally a sign of generic shite.

    I knew Colin (the lead singer). He was not like his voice. He was going out with the sister of my best friend, at the time, he was quiet, but what a tune. Dancing like a Dervish is also a killer but not a patch on Why or everybody dies. Check out Polystyrene Tiles if you can…
