A Simple Solution to a Complex Problem by Northweest hardcore legends Subvert was recorded by JACK ENDINO at Reciprocal Studio in ’87 and released only as a cassette. The tape caught some attention in the underground, and connected SUBVERT with bands like POISON IDEA, FINAL CONFLICT, THE ACCUSED, CHRIST ON PARADE, and eventually made their way into PUSHEAD’s top 100 of the '80s. This 7” is the new remastered version of the Demo Tape and includes an additional Instrumental song “Noxious Tune” from the same session, which has never been released on vinyl until now. The cover is a reworked version of an early Subvert logo with original art by NEKO CASE.
Subvert are comprised of various fans and players involved in the NW hardcore scene since its inception. Singer Eric Greenwalt had been attending shows in Olympia and Tacoma since he could crawl and had been a member of Olympia's legendary Nazi Boy Scouts. John Grant and John Purkey both played in one of Tacoma's first hardcore bands, Noxious Fumes, who released a cassette on K in 1985.
