I’m currently on an East LA punk rock binge. And that video above is one of the best thing I found while trawling the net looking for bands which I recalled from my days in the early 80s listening to Los Illegals & The Plugz (which was NOT from East LA but Hollywood) – both early examples of American punk rock coming in from the Chicano / Mexican-American side of things.
That band above is now reformed and gigging again, with a double-CD full anthology coming out soon. They are THE BRAT and they are bloody awesome!
Check their myspace: here

note: i’ve been very busy trying to keep the books in order at the shop for the last 6 weeks, and the work load continues, so bear with me if these pages have been very stale! It’d be back to its usual updates as soon as i wrestled the accounts. Selamat tak berpuasa to all who are smoking in the backroom!
Our new EP ‘Fall of America’ is out now anybody interested in serious distroing get in touch:
