The Avengers were a legendary American punk band from San Francisco who played live—loud, hard, fast—from June 1977 through June 1979. (Neile)
Recommended first album:
The Avengers Died For Your Sins is the only one readily available
See The Official Avengers/Penelope Houston Site for availability
Highly recommended for punk fans
The Scavengers (3 tracks):
Penelope Houston and Kevin Army
This is a compilation of live, demos, oddities and out of print tracks, and some tracks by the reconstructed band, The Scavengers. Penelope Houston's punk band! Not to be missed by anyone who likes this type of music. Loud, angry, fast, but fun—this is a taste of punk rock in its heyday and as it was best—live and loud. (Neile)
