THE PUT-ONS: The Put-OnsThe Put-Ons Debut CD.
Recommended if you like late 70's era American and British Pop Punk bands. The Put-Ons, A Power-Pop/Punk band from Orange County California, formed in the summer of 2000. The Put-Ons sound has been compared to The Clash, Buzzcocks, Generation X, The Jam, The Only Ones, and 20/20.
The CD was written and produced by David Pedroza. The band's discography includes a 7" red vinyl EP on Unity Squad Records and "Cuts" Hostage Records Compilation. Whitney Catastrophe: guitar, David Pedroza: vocals/guitar, Shawn Munoz : bass/vocals, Mike Petrus: drums
"Oozing a raw, hard-edged basement charm and displaying an obvious affinity for mid-to-late 70's new wave pop, The Put-Ons are a rough & rocking alternative to the ultra-wussy indie sap that usually passes for "power pop" these days. The 4-song vinyl EP, recalls not only the likes of The Nerves and Flashcubes but also 70's poppy punk bruisers like The Undertones and Carpettes. - and the result is a pretty damn cool record. I dig this! If someone would have told me that this was a long-lost demo from 1978, I wouldn't have been shocked. This will make my 2001 Top Ten, for sure."
