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
X
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.
