The Avengers playing NYC before UK tour (dates)

What allegedly began as an excuse for punk fashions became, briefly, the most powerful band in the San Francisco area; the Avengers’ original EP was a minor classic of its time, indicating that they might have become America’s best straight-ahead punk (not hardcore) band had they lasted. The four-song Avengers 12-inch boasts tight, memorable cuts instrumentally akin to Johnny Thunders and the Sex Pistols, though it’s Penelope Houston’s intoning words of some depth that makes the difference. Like X without any pretensions; too bad Steve Jones couldn’t finish the production (the mix needed him). – [Trouser Press]
