Deb Frazin Photo Column—Spunk

Jun 05, 2022

A couple of weeks ago I saw a punk band called Spunk—four kids from Hacienda Heights influenced by The Germs, Bad Brains, and The Stooges. These guys sure were a deep breath of fresh air. Finally, a real punk band that draws their influence from the right roots!

I was crawling the walls. I’m so glad I decided I needed to get out of my apartment and go check out that punk matinee downtown. I discovered gold that day—Spunk. It’s the OG punk rock sound that I love (the singer reminded me of a young Darby Crash). They played originals, a Bad Brains cover, and an encore of “I Wanna Be Your Dog” that would make Iggy smile.

Go check them out the next time they play. Trust me.
