The Alley Cats are a Los AngelesCalifornia-based punk rock trio featuring Randy Stodola (guitar and vocals). Along with Dianne Chai (bass and vocals) and drummer John McCarthy, they were members of the early L.A. punk rock scene. X's John Doe described the band as having "made some of the toughest, most nihilistic music on the scene."
Originally signed to Dangerhouse Records alongside other seminal California-based punk bands including the BagsBlack Randy and the Metro Squad, and X, they released their first single "Nothing Means Nothing Anymore" backed with "Give Me a Little Pain" on March 30, 1978. They are among the six bands featured on the 1979 compilation album Yes L.A. and appear in the 1982 film Urgh! A Music War.
The Alley Cats were regular performers at such Los Angeles venues as Club 88, Hong Kong CaféThe Masque, and the Whisky a Go Go.
Reformed as "The Zarkons", they released two albums, Riders In The Long Black Parade (1985) and Between the Idea & the Reality…Falls the Shadow (1988), before disbanding in 1988.
After a 20-year haiatus, Stodola reformed the trio and currently performs as The Alley Cats along with Apryl Cady (bass and vocals) and Matt Laskey (drums)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Californian punk is what I prefer and this, together with Mommy's Little Monster of Social Distortion, is perhaps the best product. A vinyl I have been holding for nearly 30 years and is part of my DNA from the first listening! Ten masterpieces to be handed down to posterity, all traces are excellent. If I'm not mistaken ... it never came out in CD format and I've never seen it on the lossless network, so I think that kind of fans will be happy with it.
Dedicated to Federico Guglielmi, who loves The Alley Cats at least as I love them.
Dig it!
