Inspecter 7 - The Infamous (1997)

A little change to the blog, this time I'm bringing you the finest 2 Tone band from New Jersey/New York! Inspecter 7 formed in 1992 in New Brunswick, NJ in a desperation to bring back a 2-tone/Ska scene in the early 90's. The band started playing at parties and basement shows for the first year under the name of 'Agent 86'. Not until the end of 1993 the band renamed the band to 'Inspecter 7'. By the beginning of 94' kick off pretty hardcore and started to get some recognition. Started to play some more gigs in NYC and supported many of the local Skinhead and Punk bands at the time. In 1997 the band signs to 'Radical Records' and their first full length CD is released titled 'The Infamous', which made a big impact for the band. Their success did not last long, till the release of their second full-length 'Banished to Bogeyland' not having the same respond as their first one. By the end of the 90's the band was going for a split and had a few reunion shows. By 2003 the band called it a finished once for all. After Inspecter 7 the vocalist of the band formed a similar band under the name of 'Hub City Stompers', who till the day of today they are still playing. As for my taste they are not as good as Inspecter 7 but they put a good show.
