Anyone recommend where to start with the 80's American punk group "x"?
I still hope one day I'll get to seem em live.
Los Angeles isn't a bad place to start, you can pick it up cheapish as well.
and found los angeles in fopp for a fiver,bargain!
I would just start from the 1st album and work your way through.
in the sense I saw them a lot in their heyday. Awesome band. Maybe the best LA has ever produced.
Wild Gift and Los Angeles for sure. Stone cold classics.
Here's a funny. I passed out in John Doe's and Exene's old Caddy convertible one time. It was really their fault for not putting up the top.
Also, they were on local radio a while back threatening maybe to write new songs...we'll see.
The reply said it was unlikely.
But with John Doe and DJ" Bonebrake doing ATP with the Flesheaters, and Doe doing End Of The Road. I still hold out hope.
start with Los Angeles then move on to Wild Gift and Under The Big Black Sun
More Fun In The New World and See How We Are are rad too
Los Angeles is a perfectly formed album. Sex & Dying in High Society is the epitaph of 80s punk for me.
the best gig ever
Naturally I have tickets for V's
My wife and bank manager are going are going to to well fucked off with me.
