Formed: San Francisco, California, USA

Fiery punk band, regulars at places like the Mab, who earned some notoriety with 100% White Girl, a single which was accused (wrongly) of containing racist material. They split in 1982 but reformed briefly in 1994, releasing their self-titled album from 1982 and a single (Goin' Downtown, 1996), the latter of which came in a double pack with the debut single included. Singer Nyna Crawford died in 2000, having succumbed to cancer.

They made a comeback single, Mayhem With A Beat, in 1996.
