AVENGERS- s/t 7″EP (Dangerhouse Records, USA, 1977)

One of the most impressive, deepest and richest first wave U.S. Punk 7″. Menacing, aggressive, driven and melancholic. Although my favourite AVENGERS song is not on this one (that’s the incredible “Thin white Line”), the other fave of mine is. This is essential, just like everything the AVENGERS touched in their short lifetime. And yes, I had a crush on Penelope Houston when I was younger and I wrote a poem about it. It’s a major shame things didn’t turn out the way they had turned out with another beloved female singer of mine.
Seen the AVENGERS Target video? Wonderful!
Hear the “Paint it Black” Single here. They even made the Stones sound like the Beatles on that one!

Three times 1000 pressed of this. This is the 2nd press (first one had the famous “Crucifixion” sleeve, but whom am I telling this). Buy everything you can find by the AVENGERS. Buy it from Penelope’s site linked above.

«we are the leaders of tomorrow
we are the one to have the fun
we want control we want the power
not gonna stop until it comes

we are not Jesus Christ
we are not fascist pigs
we are not capitalist industrialists
we are not communists
we are the one

we will build a better tomorrow
the youth of today will be the tool
american children built for survival
fate is our destiny and we shall rule

we are not Jesus Christ
we are not fascist pigs
we are not capitalist industrialists
we are not communists
we are the one

I am the one who shows you the future
I am the one who buries the past
a new species rise up from the ruins
I am the one that was made to last

we are not Jesus Christ
we are not fascist pigs
we are not capitalist industrialists
we are not communists
we are the one»
