BioIn early 1977 The WEIRDOS mighty sound and singular style were the big-bang igniting the L.A. punk rock scene. In a 1977 interview for SLASH magazine they proclaimed "we're not punks, we're weirdos from Hollyweird!". This wasn't just goofy sloganeering, this was a stance intended to distinguish The WEIRDOS as a band apart from the burgeoning punk rock scenes in New York and London. After all, The WEIRDOS were dwelling in their own urban wasteland (L.A.) which they embodied in their songs, graphics and clothes. In 1990, after releasing records on BOMP, DANGERHOUSE and RHINO, The WEIRDOS released the acclaimed CONDOR LP and the crucial WEIRD WORLD Vol. I on FRONTIER. In 2003 The WEIRDOS released the long-awaited WEIRD WORLD Vol. II; a collection of studio and live recordings. Dateline: July 7, 2004--- The WEIRDOS are declared winners of the 2004 L.A. WEEKLY Music Awards for Best Punk Rock/Hardcore Band. .. .. .. I edited my profile with Thomas Myspace Editor V4.4 (www.strikefile.com/myspace) ..........
