Dateline: July 7,
2004---The WEIRDOS are declared winners of the 2004 L.A. WEEKLY Music
Awards for BEST PUNK ROCK/HARDCORE BAND.
Weirdos burst onto the LA rock music scene (pre-punk) and quickly made a
name for themselves. By summer of 1977 they were a headlining band, were
packing shows (Whisky au go go) and had a fanatically devoted following.
I know, I was oneof them. The excitement of the early explosive punk
scene, it's unique club situation (Masque) and a band like the Weirdos
was such an emotionally charged combination that it literally changed
the way I thought about many things-- especially music and its
presentation. That situation has been unsurpassed for me ever
