ANTHEADS: Think Fast: 7”

Well, Supreme Echo is back with another batch of archival Canadian punk rock 7”s I can’t stop salivating over. In 1979, Vancouver punk band Active Dog split up. A couple of members went on to join the Pointed Sticks, a couple more started bands like the Modernettes and Los Popularos. And the final two members started Antheads. This record was recorded in 1980 by renowned punk rock sound master Cecil English and sweet zombie jesus, does it rip! The songs are fast, melodic, angry, and raw all at the same time. I don’t know how they managed to get lost to the sands of time as so many great bands do, because I think these songs can go toe to toe with what contemporaries such as DOA were doing at the time (which was admittedly amazing). I am so happy that Supreme Echo keeps digging up these lost bands and giving them the releases that they deserve. If you have any interest in the early Vancouver/Canadian punk rock scene, you need to get this. –Ty Stranglehold (Supreme Echo, supremeecho.bandcamp.com)
