7 o’clock Sucker debuted in the spring of 1994, opening for Minneapolis based Arcwelder and Gods Favorite Band at the old Elks Lodge on First Avenue. Allegedly named after a never attempted home brew, the band began as five piece with members hailing from Milnor, Dickinson, and Minot, North Dakota. Troy and his obsequious baseball cap were dropped after their first public appearance (the band had played several shows in their basement, aka the 700 Club), and 7 o’clock Sucker continued as a three piece for 3-4 years before disbanding with a self released seven-inch.

Marked by an energetically charismatic stage presence, 7 o’clock Sucker played pop punk similar to Jawbreaker and Face to Face; later, their style of music evolved into a more hardcore sound, reflective of their changing influences.

7 o’clock Sucker played countless basement shows and the members were quietly responsible for introducing Fargo/Moorhead to numerous bands that were under the radar of the stereotypical F/M scenester; the height of the 700 Club included: Propagandhi, Defiance, The Pist, and Schlong, among others.
