Rhino 39 - The band

Formed: Long Beach, California, USA

Underachieving L.A. punksters whose 'Prolixin Stomp', on their debut EP, is often singled out as one of the first hardcore songs, and very fast it is. They never really got off the ground, though, and only released two records in their lifetime. The Xerox 7" is great, and so is Rhino 39 LP, even though it came out seven years after the debut. Singer Dave Dacron died in a car crash. Not to be confused with the metal band of the same name which formed in the 1990s.
