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!

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!
