Eastside Punks, Episode 2: The Brat

In our second installment of Eastside Punks, we focus on East L.A. legends The Brat. Formed in the late 1970s, vocalist Teresa Covarrubias, guitarists Rudy Medina and Sidney Medina, bassist Lou Soto, and drummer Robert Soto quickly cornered the market on smart, taut pop delivered with righteous punk fury by one of the tightest bands in the area.

The Scenics Video Preview : First wave Toronto art punk from 1978 By Dale

During the first wave of punk rock in the mid-to-late ‘70s, there was already a subgenre splintering off, riding side-by-side with this new-fangled brand of rock’n’roll. These bands of the more art-inclined subgenre held their own—notably NYC’s Suicide, Television, Richard Hell And The Voidoids, and Talking Heads.

Summer 1976: cut northwest of NYC into Canada, almost eight hundred miles away to the city of Toronto. The meeting of two guys in their late teens sparked a band as worthy as their NYC contemporaries. That band is The Scenics.

This brand new video below features the 1978 track “I Killed Marx,” from their brand new collective release, In the Summer / The Scenics Studio Recordings 1977-78.
