**Now available on LP**In the late ’70s, The Avengers established themselves as one of
the US’s preeminent punk bands. Fusing incisive guitar hooks,
explosive rhythms and adolescent venom, the group forged some
of the most in-your-face songs of the era. Their live shows were
legendary, playing up and down the West Coast and even blowing
Sex Pistols off the stage at the latter’s final performance.
As Byron Coley writes in the liner notes, “Of the best bands
of San Francisco’s first wave in 1977, The Avengers were by
far the coolest and youngest sounding. They roared without irony,
as though this were indeed Year Zero (and, for a moment, it
was), with history being overwritten by the new. The honesty of
their belief was carried by their sound. And it was convincing!”
Originally released in 1983, four years after the band’s dissolution,
The Avengers’ self-titled LP is often referred to as “The
Pink Album” for its magenta-hued cover design. Frontwoman
Penelope Houston’s iconic voice and razor-sharp lyrics resonate
on anthems “We Are The One” and “The American In Me,”
while penetrating ballads like “Corpus Christi” reveal a truly
out-of-body euphony.
The Pink Album remains The Avengers’ definitive
statement—collecting their classic Dangerhouse EP, sessions
recorded with the Pistols’ Steve Jones and a half-dozen revelatory
demos. While much has been written about The Avengers in the
past three decades, rock critic Greil Marcus puts it succinctly,
“The word I always come back to is mystical, and that remains
almost theirs alone.”
