Mutants - San Francisco PunksMutants - San Francisco Punks

According to Wikipedia, "The Mutants are an important band in the history of San Francisco punk rock and new wave music. They are known for their theatrical performances which often include elaborate props, projections, and comical antics. They are credited with being one of the first "Art-punk" bands in San Francisco, and were one of the most popular bands of the San Francisco punk scene during the late 1970s and early 1980s."

They recorded one single and one LP, and a handful of compilation tracks, before drug abuse and the usual interpersonal bullshit tore them asunder in 1983, although they have reformed a few times since. in 1989 it was for a gig at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco, and fifteen years or so later they could be seen treading the boards with other punk oldtimers.
