Few rock bands have as heavy—or as deeply complicated—a legacy as that of 7 Year Bitch. Formed in Seattle in 1990 just as the music world was about to be flipped on its head by the explosion of grunge 7 Year Bitch were, from the very beginning, a band hell bent on carving their own distinct path. The band was formed by drummer Valerie Agnew, vocalist Selene Vigil-Wilk, guitarist Stefanie Sargent and bassist Elizabeth Davis- Simpson. Unlike so many of their peers at the time, who were often tied to particular feminist punk agendas or a specifically grunge aesthetic, 7 Year Bitch were a much more visceral, back to basics punk rock band.

Throughout the band’s seven-year run, they proved not only to be trailblazers, but also incredibly resilient. Much of the band’s most iconic work was colored by a series of terrible losses—the passing of founding guitarist Stefanie Sargent in 1992 and the murder of The Gits frontwoman (and longtime friend and mentor) Mia Zapata in 1993—events that powerfully informed some of the band’s most potent music. With the addition of Roisin Dunne—an old friend of Stefanie Sargent–joining the band as guitarist in 1992, the band was primed to enter into one of the most dynamic eras of their career.

Less concerned with being feminist trailblazers than simply being an incredibly kick-ass rock band, 7 Year Bitch ended up being both. Their three studio albums—1992 debut album Sick ‘Em, 1994’s landmark ¡Viva Zapata!, and the band’s swan song, 1996’s Gato Negro—rank among some of the best and resolutely bombastic records unleashed during the 1990’s, heavy as all hell rock albums loaded front to back with equal parts dynamic songwriting and a healthy dose of punk rock fury.

Now, nearly 20 years since the band played their last shows, 7 Year Bitch is set to release Live At Moe—a live album that documents the band at the peak of their powers. Recorded in 1996 at Seattle’s Club MOE (aka Moe’s Mo’Roc’n Cafe), the tracks on Live at Moe were originally broadcast on iMusic.com, the first website to routinely stream live music directly from a club. The recordings themselves were all but forgotten until producer and MOE Recordings impresario Scott Blum—the man behind iMusic, found the recordings (along with around 350 other master recordings) languishing in a box previously buried in his basement. According to Blum, it was the intensity of the 7 Year Bitch recordings that inspired him to create a record label that could bring these recordings back into the world.
