L.A. punk rock scene. In a 1977 interview for SLASH magazine they proclaimed "we're not punks, we're weirdos from Hollyweird!". This was'nt 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 thier own urban wasteland (LA) which they embodied in thier songs, graphics and clothes. In 1990, after releasing records on BOMP, DANGERHOUSE and RHINO, The WEIRDOS released the 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.

Was a westside 14 yr old when began clubbing...1st saw Weirdos at 17. Best thing since The Dolls...still is. Think I would see these guys on Upper Mesa. I lived on Latimer until 16. Some of the best memories of my life.
