Here are 3 Naked Angels 7 inches, as requested by a friend of mine. Naked Angels was a sXe hardcore band from North Carolina in the late '80s to early '90s. One of the members, Rob Seeman, called himself Rob R Rock, and became known as the first sXe hardcore rapper, with his track 'Cruelty Free' on the 'Voice Of The Voiceless' compilation from 1991. For a long time I didn't bother checking out this band because I expected some kind of bad rap/punk/hardcore mix... Thankfully I was wrong. And while Naked Angels are far from great, they're also definitely not bad. Decent punk/hardcore, nothing more, nothing less.
Despite the title of their 'The Real Hardline' 7" from 1991/1992, which also features a song with the title 'Hardline', the band was not hardline. The song 'Hardline' is actually about homophobic jocks in the straight edge scene, an issue that is still as relevant now as it was back then. The band did support veg(etari)anism as mentioned on the inside of the cover for the 'Intent To Kill' 7" from 1992, and all the members were straight edge as far as I know. The sound on this 7" is harder than on the 'The Real Hardline' 7", with Rob singing with a deeper, tougher voice. My favourite of these 3 7inches.
Also included here is a live 7" called 'On The Road E.P.', also from 1992. It has the subtitle "Recorded live at WRTC on 'Notes From The Underground'".
After these records, the band did another 7", 2 albums and were on a number of compilations. Some of these were released on Rob R Rock's own Groovecore label.
I did come across an 'interesting' piece of info regarding the Naked Angels drummer on the 'Intent To Kill' 7" from 1992, who turned out to have lots of issues and eventually ended up murdering his own mother... Check it out. Crazy stuff!
