AVENGERSOne of the first and finest bands to emerge from San Francisco's punk scene, the Avengers were originally together for only two years, and they didn't release an album during that period. But their passionate music and uncompromising viewpoints proved to be a major inspiration in a scene that would grow and flourish long after they broke up, and the handful of singles they left behind documented a band of uncommon power and force. Just as importantly, lead singer Penelope Houston was one of the pioneering women of American punk, proving there was a place for female artists in the new music

 Although it was released in 1983, this collection represents just about everything San Francisco's late, 

great Avengers recorded from 1977-1978. By contemporary standards, it's by-the-book punk thrash: 

Greg Ingraham's guitar spews up hairball after hairball of distortion, while Penelope Houston snarls in 

her best impression of Johnny Rotten. However, contemporary standards diminish what great music 

this was and what a great band the Avengers were. Dozens of bands came in their wake, but few could 

recapture the excitement and ferocity of their sound. Houston, who re-emerged years later as a folk-rocker, 

is in full fury on these 14 tracks, especially the youth culture solidarity anthem "We Are the One" 

and the tale of desperation "Thin White Line." A few spins of this and you'll hear how the Avengers 

influenced everyone from Black Flag to X. Yes, they were that good. 

A forgotten classic...(AllMusic)
