Artist: AVENGERS, THE
Title: Be A Cave Man
Format: 7"
Label: Mighty Mouth Music
Country: USA
Price: $7.50
"Be A Cave Man is a winner all the way with its uptempo teen beat groove and put down lyrics...."Be a cave man - keep her in line"...the boys would have the womans liberation after them these days of course....But who cares? this was 1965 when men were men. "Heres what Gerry Blake said about Be A Cave Man: "Im not sure we even thought about how politically incorrect Caveman was. We just liked the song. It would get people dancing for sure. I dont think the girls thought much about it either. It was a different time back then. It was just music. We werent dragging any girls behind the stage by the hair. Although some of them might have gone for it! By the way, the "monkey" sounds was one of us trying to make monkey sounds. Didnt cut it. So Gary Paxton just looped it and sped the recording up. I was the Tarzan yell."" -Mighty Mouth

Artist: AVENGERS, THE
Title: Paint It Black b/w Thin White Line
Format: 7"
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"The Avengers emerged as one of the best bands from San Franciscos first wave punk scene in 1977. Their second 7" packs a 1-2 punch that tears through the Stones classic and unleashes the menace that was only hinted at in the original. The B-side "Thin White Line" is a musical punch in the gut with the pay-off of lead-singer Penelope Houstons excellent "Dont talk about the blood running down my chin" lyric. Limited edition Record Store Day release of 1,000 pressed on green vinyl." -Superior Viaduct.

Artist: AVENGERS, THE
Title: s/t
Format: CD
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"In the late 70s, The Avengers established themselves as one of the USs preeminent punk bands. Fusing incisive guitar hooks, explosive rhythms and adolescent venom, the group forged some of the most in-your-face songs of the era. Their live shows were legendary, playing up and down the West Coast and even blowing Sex Pistols off the stage at the latters final performance. As Byron Coley writes in the liner notes, Of the best bands of San Franciscos first wave in 1977, The Avengers were by far the coolest and youngest sounding. They roared without irony, as though this were indeed Year Zero (and, for a moment, it was), with history being overwritten by the new. The honesty of their belief was carried by their sound. And it was convincing! Originally released in 1983, four years after the bands dissolution, The Avengers self-titled LP is often referred to as The Pink Album for its magenta-hued cover design. The Pink Album remains The Avengers definitive statement -- collecting their classic Dangerhouse EP, sessions recorded with the Pistols Steve Jones and a half-dozen revelatory demos. While much has been written about The Avengers in the past three decades, rock critic Greil Marcus puts it succinctly, The word I always come back to is mystical, and that remains almost theirs alone." - Superior Viaduct.

Artist: AVENGERS, THE
Title: Teenage Rebel b/w Friends Of Mine
Format: 7"
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"The Avengers emerged as one of the best bands from San Franciscos first wave punk scene in 1977. "Teenage Rebel" remains the anthem for every disaffected youth on the planet. Not included on the infamous Pink album, this song is a two-minute package of pure adolescent vitriol. Backed with "Friends of Mine," a declaration of solidarity for the punks of San Francisco. Recorded in 1978 at the famed Iguana Studios on Folsom Street. Limited edition Record Store Day release of 1,000 pressed on orange vinyl." -Superior Viaduct.

Artist: AVENGERS, THE
Title: We Are the One
Format: 7"
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"The Avengers emerged as one of the best bands from San Franciscos first wave punk scene in 1977. Their first 7" remains an essential artifact of punk rock in the late 70s. Originally released on the seminal Dangerhouse label, the EPs three tracks feature visceral sonic attacks, lyrical manifestos of self-reliance, and classic anthemic choruses. Cover photography by Marcus Leatherdale on two unique picture sleeves - the rare "crucifix" and "target" designs. Limited edition Record Store Day release of 1,000 copies (500 each of two original covers) pressed on blue vinyl." -Superior Viaduct.
