Description

They were part of the first wave of L.A. punk rock in the late '70s, though they didn't like to think of themselves as punk. In a 1977 interview, they declared that they weren't a punk band at all, but just "weirdos from Hollyweird." And they were weird compared to a lot of the bands around them: a sort of unhinged, sped up art-rock band, Nowadays it clearly sounds like punk rock. That's because they helped to shape the budding genre in its infancy. Their crazy, in-your-face, spastic energy almost sounds like a loose blueprint for the L.A. hardcore sound that came up after them, even if musically they weren't playing as fast or aggressive as Black Flag.
