Song of the Week: Seventh Séance – I Could Forget Myself (1st Oct ’10)


So, we got in October! And I wanna start this month with something really addictive. But it’s an old one… a track everyone would like to discover. No kidding, this song got me hooked for days now. Post punknew wave, with a track born in 1983!

Seventh Séance is a band from East London, created in 1982 till 1992, when the members followed their own way, running away from their lifestyle rock n’ roll had shown them. But, you know how it is…

Internet can bring things upside-down and lead you to great popularity. Actually their tracks were in demand in the web, something the band found out randomly, ‘forcing’ them to satisfy their fans’ hunger, re-releasing old material, even preparing brand-new stuff!

Finding info for a band that broke up 15 years ago can be pretty rough, such for the lyrics, so I won’t post them this time. I will try to edit the post later on though. All we know is that this band can clearly be an influence for the lovers of goth-punk-new wave music of the 80’s. You can download their music (after reading this interesting blog entry) here:
