Standpoint was a female-fronted band from New Jersey in the mid '90s. Their sound was on the softer side, more indie than hardcore. If you are familiar with Ashes, the female-fronted band that Brian McTernan (Battery) played in, you'll find that Standpoint has a very similar sound, including the nice female vocals with the occasional shouted male vocals as back-up. For me, the female/male vocals things worked better with Standpoint than with Ashes tho, even tho I do like Ashes quite a bit. I love this 7" from 1994 (I think?) especially the 1st track, 'Blindsided', although all 3 songs are great. 'Blindsided' would also be re-recorded for their full-length album, 'Whatever', on Smorgasbord Records, however I prefer this version. All in all, a sweet 7". This 7" was the 1st release on Spiritfall Records, which would later release records by bands such as Born Under Saturn, Neil Perry, The Swarm and Mörser, quite a change from the sound of this 7".
Unfortunately I don't know too much about this band. From what I gathered they released a demo called 'Opened Doors' but I've never seen or heard it, so if anybody has it and can send me some info or mp3's, I would be grateful! As mentioned they did a full-length called 'Whatever' on Smorgasbord Records, which is still available. They also appear on the 'The Tie That Binds' compilation. Apart from that this band is sort of a mystery to me, so I would appreciate any and all information.
