Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

The Avengers only managed two eps in their brief two-year existence but paved the way for female-led Punk bands. The band came together in early 1977 as the brainchild of two San Francisco Institute of Art students, Seattle immigré & vocalist Penelope Houston & drummer Danny Furious. Joined by guitarist Greg Ingraham & bass player Jon Postal, the band began their short career opening for The Nuns at the Mabuhay Gardens in June ‘77. Shortly after this gig Jimmy Wisley took over on bass as Postal opted out to join The Readymades. This quartet proceeeded to demolish the Californian punk scene. The Avengers released the three-track ep We Are the One for the Dangerhouse label in Dec. ‘77 (“We Are The One”, “I Believe in Me”, & “Car Crash”)

The Avengers opened for the Sex Pistols at Winterland for the Sex Pistols fated last show. This four-song ep was produced by Sex Pistol Steve Jones & engineered by Geza X. It was released on White Noise Records in 1979 just a few months after the Avenger broke up. “The American in Me” & “Uh Oh” are different versions than those released on the Pink Album.
