DESCENDENTS (The)

 More from this Band



CD | LP BLACK

Formed in L. A.'s South Bay in 1978, DESCENDENTS began as
 
a power trio featuring bassist Tony Lombardo, drummer Bill
 
Stevenson, and guitarist Frank Navetta (d. 2008). The band recruited
 
vocalist Milo Aukerman in 1980 and began establishing
 
themselves as major players in the Southern California Punk
 
movement. Over the years, the band has sustained a potent
 
chemistry and shared vision, further cementing them as punk
 
legends.
 
In 2002, the original four-piece lineup -- Frank Navetta, Tony
 
Lombardo, Bill Stevenson, and Milo Aukerman -- got back into
 
the studio to finally record their first-ever songs. The songs were
 
written by the band from 1977 through 1980, before recording
 
the Fat EP (1981) and the Milo Goes to College LP (1982). Put
 
simply, this is the DESCENDENTS' earliest material, representing
 
a "lost" pre-MGTC album. Most of these songs have not
 
been heard--until now.
 
Every element of DESCENDENTS' genre-creating sound is here:
 
Stevenson's hyper-caffeinated surf-beats, Lombardo's intrepid
 
bass, Navetta's crunching attack, Aukerman's impassioned,
 
infinitely relatable singing--and all those great melodies and
 
harmonies.
