Many bands are taking to releasing short ep’s to get their music out more often and in smaller doses to fans and Jimmy Sisco with his Platoon 1107 project has fully embraced this trend, rapidly releasing three free ep’s followed by a live ep. In the end, there is 25 songs of raucous hardcore punk with a couple covers thrown in for good measure.
Jimmy Sisco (ex-Absolved) started this solo side project, Platoon 1107, to honor those who went through boot camp with him at the Marine Corp Recruit Depot in San Diego. Outside of these four recent ep’s, Platoon 1107 has been on at least seven other releases including a split with the Cants, the full length, We Glory in the Title, the Live Free or Die ep, and three benefit compilations. Most of the releases feature Jimmy handling all the music duties but for the Alive 1 ep, he did assemble a band to record the live show and he is currently in process of assembling a regular live band for shows.
First off, let’s just say that the Tourette’s, Straight Edge, and Marine Forever…Forever Marine ep’s are all available for free download and are worth picking up even if you had to pay for them, so what are you waiting for? Free hardcore punk rock, go get it.
