86. LIFERS - Kevin Seconds

The LIFERS Podcast

About as lifer-ey as they get, Kevin Seconds is just one of those guys. The kind of guy that inspires you to be more creative, more independent, more mindful of those around you. He just fucking makes you want to be better. At least that’s what he did for us, and we couldn’t be more honored to have him on the show. On this episode we talk to Kevin about 7 Seconds (duh), building a scene in Reno, Cheech & Chong & The Dils, recording THE CREW, internet trolls vs. skinheads, Riotfest, sad band break-ups, triumphant band returns, touring with Circle Jerks and Negative Approach, playing Gabe’s birthday party, and designing the first Local H logo. This is a good one, folks.

Episode 19: Kevin Seconds (7 Seconds)

TraegerMethod Podcast

Kevin Seconds is a true American punk/hardcore D.I.Y. indie icon. Jason and Kevin met in 1984 when he interviewed 7 Seconds for Leading Edge fanzine backstage at Perkins Palace in Pasadena and they have been friends ever since. The two lived together in Reno for a time and Jason was roadie on the band's 1986 North American tour. This conversation focuses on Kevin's origin story. We learn about the hardscrabble circumstances he and his family experienced after arriving in Reno in the mid 70's, and how the precariousness of his situation helped prime his fascination with the nascent punk movement rumbling underground at the time. We then trace his journey from curious seeker of all things punk to the beginning of 7 Seconds and his central role establishing "anti-youth" Reno, NV as the home of the vital, nationally recognized "Skeeno H.C." hardcore scene. This episode demands a follow-up and we'll be sure to hear from Kevin again in future installments to see where the story goes from here. Thank you for listening! Music:  7 Seconds: "Fight Your Own Fight", "Fuck Your Amerika", "No Authority" TM pod intro by Jason. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/jason-traeger/support
