Release Info: Oversoul Seven - s/t (1988, Edge)
were an export of Vancouver, BC, Canada, who seemed to be angling towards the left end of the dial (and probably could have were they a bit more savvy), but strayed a few notches shy. More "modern rock" than "indie" if you get my drift. This trio weren't nearly as distinguishable as I had hoped to encounter, though ringleader Adam Gejdos vaguely resembles Cactus World News frontman Frank Kearns, vocally that is, but it's improbable that one was ever aware of the other. The clangy "How Many Times" has some real spark to it. As for the rest of Oversoul Seven, do things catch fire elsewhere? Guess there's only way for you to find out. The band released an ep, Fool Revelation, a year prior to this that I hope to get my hands on soon.
On a sadder note, bassist (the one in glasses) passed away in 1993 at the tender age of 27.
