What's All This Then

Why should I care what this guy has to say?

The correct answer is that you shouldn’t. We’re all entitled to our opinions. Develop your own. I try to be sane and rational, but that may change with the level of caffeine intake. I’m just telling my stories in the hopes they may amuse and/or inform others. And... I Confess... I'm showing off my bitchen collection a bit.

West Coast Punk - Yes LA

Dangerhouse Records was one of the few LA punk labels.  Their output was primarily 45's by 'unsigned' bands.  

Around 1978 Brian Eno put out a compilation of New York noise bands called 'No New York.'  Dangerhouse responded by releasing 'Yes L.A.'

The record was a one sided affair pressed on clear vinyl with a decal on the back.  

Featured artists were some of the best bands on the scene at the time.

The Bags
The Alley Cats
The Germs
Black Randy and the Metrosquad
The Eyes

There will definitely be more posts in the future on the Dangerhouse  and other Los Angeles/San Francisco punk singles.  I got a lot of them as they came out.
