Second in our Skate-Punk series! Seminal skaterock band from San Jose, CA (1980-1983) heavily influenced by the first wave of punk rock (Stooges, NY Dolls, Dead Boys, Radio Birdman, Saints, etc.,) LOS OLVIDADOS were the Northern California
equivalent of T.S.O.L., Agent Orange, the Adolescents, and others from Orange County who rose to popularity during the formative years of West Coast punk. Although featured on the AT/MRR comp Not So Quiet On The Western Front and the early Thrasher magazine Skaterock Comps (#1 & #2), the band self-destructed before a full-length album would see the light of day--that is, until we included it in our Skate-Rock Re-issue Series. Even at 20 years old, this stuff still sounds so vital and youthful that you'll have no choice but to dust off your deck, drain the pool, and skate!
