Intent - s/t 7"

I got this 7" with a bunch of other random records a while ago. I didn't know anything about the band, and I pretty much still don't. Still, a great piece of vinyl. Up-tempo hardcore with some more rocking bits. It reminds me of Billingsgate a lot, and I love Billingsgate. This version was released on Punchline Records in 1990 on beautiful marbled blue vinyl, limited to 500 copies, mine's number 99. However, there's also another pressing, also from 1990, on Redemption Records, not sure what's up with that. I suppose I'll have to find a copy of it to find out. They also appeared on the 'Voice Of Thousands' compilation, and that's about as much as I know of this band. I don't know if they did anything else or what the members did before or after. There's no contact information listed, but this was recorded in Austin, TX so I can only assume this band was from Texas. So if you have any information about this band, leave a comment or something!

For those who are wondering, this is not the Intent from Albany, NY that Nate Wilson (Monster X, Devoid Of Faith, Das Oath, Gloom Records) was in. Same period in time, different bands.

Update: I also have the version on Redemption Records now as well as the 'Drift' 12". Love this band!

they were from austin tx. they had an lp called "Drift" which is pretty good too. they may have had another 7", but id have to look in my 7" box. One guy from the band did a short lived project with Ray Cappo called "Ugra Karma". He is now a prominent music business attorney and works for a lot of HC bands and labels.

I think I have a 7" by this band called "Empty", and I believe it's on Redemption Records. Got it for 50 cents or something and only listened to it once, so my memory of its contents isn't so hot at the moment, ha, ha...

Great band. My big bro on drums on the empty 7". Any one have a copy for sale. Been trying to find one for him for nostalgia sake.

Mike Acevedo was the singer. He was a friend of mine at UT Austin. I don't know what happened to him, but he gave me (or sold me?) number 16 of the 500 pressing.

Shit, maybe his name was Avila not Acevedo. Sorry Mike.
