Here is another Super Seven release featuring the band Diet Christ who I believe were based in Carbondale IL back in the late 80's. It is an 8 song 7" EP on red vinyl (they squeezed every bit of music on it as they could). I was lucky enough to see them when I was back in high school in GB WI at the infamous Kutska's Hall. Diet Christ blew my mind as a kid and still garner my respect all these years later. They were some straight up Midwestern hardcore punk rock not too different than a lot of the other bands who released records on the Super Seven label. This is the real shit right here.

  1. On July 3, 2009 Diet Christ did two reunion shows in Carbondale, Illinois! One of them was at the Lost Cross House (that's still having shows, it'll be 25 years in October) and the other at PK's (a bar in Carbondale). Those were the final shows ever with the guitar player that appears on the "Band In The Bible Belt" 7" as he died 5 months later of a heart attack.

    I've got a bunch of old DC videos from 89-90 up on a YouTube page: http://www.youtube.com/MSIG
