Train Tracks

I haven't posted very much over the last few months so here's a gift, southern ontario punk rock from the late 1970's.

These bands all formed in '75/'76, the colonies/the poor northern cousins answer to DIY bands coming out the US and the UK. It seems that there was a seed in music in that time period that germinated at the same time in western speaking countries. Why?, (in Canada it was CANCON) who knows but the late 1970's was a very rich time for music and the creative spirit. Enjoy.

The Viletones - Screamin Fist.mp3

Forgotten Rebels - Surfing on Heroin.mp3

Diodes - Tired of Waking up Tired.mp3

The Demics - New York City.mp3

Teenage Head - Picture My Face.mp3

There is a heck of a lot more great bands from this time, all you have to do is dig for them.

I am rereading Please Kill Me (Leg's McNeil's oral history of the Punk scene from the Mc5 thru the late 70's). Highly recommended if you haven't read it yet)
