Teenage Head - Teenage Head
Canadian punks Teenage Head never achieved their deserved level of success outside of their home country. Though often seen as Canada's version of The Ramones, the band seemed to not be able to cross the border and bring the
bounce stateside. The band actually formed after some local gigs by The New York Dolls and The Ramones and picked up their name from the classic Flamin' Groovies track. After an initial single they recorded this debut packed full of taught rockers that never feel as loose as their U.S. counterparts but burn with a sound that borders both the punk and new wave movements. Following this album the band would go onto record Frantic City which was bolstered by press from a riot at one of the band's recent gigs. The press opened them up to opportunities abroad but like so many of these lost classics, fate intervened. A car accident injured band members causing them to miss their New York showcase. Sadly the band skewed more rockabilly on their third album but the first two are solid reminders of their prowess.
