Editorial Reviews

Review

The American In Me was a torn flag flown by the Avengers... the best punk band in San Francisco, in moments the best in the country -- and what they were claiming was the country itself: the country that the Avengers' songs said didn't want them, didn't recognize them, didn't hear them, wouldn't listen. --Greil Marcus

Product Description

Avengers is an eponymous two-CD set collecting the long-unavailable Pink Album -- the official long-playing studio release by this seminal San Francisco punk band -- along with outtakes, rehearsal tapes, and live recordings, with liner notes from eminent author and music journalist Greil Marcus.

The Avengers were one of the first and most influential female-fronted punk bands in the US. In two short years, June of 1977 to June of 1979, singer Penelope Houston led The Avengers in just over 100 performances, from the Mabuhay and the Masque to supporting the Sex Pistols at Winterland (that group's legendary final show). They headlined shows with X, the Go-Go's, and the Dead Kennedys. During their brief existence, The Avengers released the We Are The One 7'' on Dangerhouse Records and the four-song 12'' EP on White Noise. In 1983, drummer Danny Furious and bassist Jimmy Wilsey gathered together these and other studio recordings for the full length self-titled LP -- the infamous Pink Album -- which would soon become the band's essential release. Out of print for decades, Avengers has been the lost artifact of the first wave of American punk.

New generations of music fans continue to discover The Avengers, and this never-ending demand has spawned countless bootlegs and two official collections of alternate material. As long-time fans wear out their original LPs and new fans scour the Internet for dubious downloads, the question arises again and again; ''When will the Pink Album be officially re-released?'' After literally years of effort the band has succeeded in making this release possible.

Disc 1 contains the original tracks and track order from the 1983 LP.

Disc 2 has the two bonus cuts that first appeared on cassette and CD versions of the Pink Album along with live recordings, rehearsal tapes, and studio demos. This set presents twenty-seven different songs and unique versions of four songs -- including alternate vocal mixes of Uh-Oh and The American In Me from the long out-of-print White Noise EP.

Besides this 31 track two-CD set on Water Records the album is also available as a 14 track LP on the 4 Men With Beards label.

Finally the Avengers material is on CD! I always regretted selling my vinyl, and at last, I'm reunited with Penelope Houston. This was the golden age of music and it will make you wistful for the olden days of punk.
