This 13-track compilation collects the earliest recordings released by seminal Los Angeles punk band the Weirdos, including the band's debut single and mini-album (both originally released by the legendary Bomp! Records), as well as four demos. One of the first and finest of L.A.'s original punk acts, the Weirdos brought a heavy dose of arty goofiness to bear on their disgruntled, furiously bouncy anthems. DESTROY ALL MUSIC presents that sound at its most untamed, and features digitally remastered sound and informative liner notes.
