Loud Fast Rules Presents: L.A. Punk History

 Consider this a lesson in history regarding all the great late 70’s and early 80’s Southern California punk and hardcore bands that paved the way for bands like Offspring, Green Day, Rancid, Sum 41, Good Charlotte, etc.

Each and every one of the these pioneer groups came up from nowhere when no one was looking. They were armed with nothing more than cheap guitars, even cheaper beer and inspiration to burn. Here we are, 30 years later, and the whole world is finally paying attention to what these kids were doing.

In the pre-eBay world (read: ten years ago), most of this material would have been both hopelessly out of print, and could have only be found in ridiculously expensive collector shops. Thankfully, there are a handful of labels still out there interested in preserving the legacies of these bands, on both CD and vinyl formats. So, with the advent of downloadable technology, most of what you are about to hear is all there for the asking. Of course, an original, dead mint copy of 198 Seconds of the Dils on Dangerhouse is still a nice prize to have in one’s collection.

That being said, who has an extra $150.00 to spend on one piece of vinyl anymore? In my case, I bought that very record at Bleecker Bob’s when domestic punk singles still cost a mere two dollars! But I digress. Hopefully, these songs will either jar a few memories or get you – if not your kids – motivated to start a new band.

The Weirdos:

The Weirdos were the first LA band to make waves. If it wasn’t for their warped visionary ability to connect Dada anti-art of the early 20th century with stripped down Rock and Roll, the Southern California scene as we know it today wouldn’t exist. Sadly, the band are once again inactive. A new 30th anniversary retrospective called Destroy All Music will have to suffice for now.
