- Talking sensible nonsense; )
They released their debut single - California Uber Alles in 79 pal, punk was still alive and thriving in the UK back then, maybe not in Toronto though.I never got into them mate. By the time they put anything out Punk was dead in my eyes.
I'll never forget my mate sending me over the new Buzzcocks album, Love Bites and the feeling that it was all over after I listened to it for the first time.
I guess I always lumped them in with the second wave along with Black Flag, D.O.A etc. The hardcore scene.
My mate bought the single after hearing it on John Peel show and i remember us listening to in his bedroom. They were a different sounding kind of raw energy and angst to me.
