Check out our upcoming event at the Ridgefield Playhouse - the legendary LA punk band, X, will be playing there on July 17th! Come and see this influential band perform in Ridgefield, CT, for an exciting night to remember!
With songs like “You’re Phone’s Off the Hook, But You’re Not,” “Johnny Hit and Run Paulene,” “Los Angeles” and “We’re Desperate”LA’s legendary punk band X, took punk rock further than many thought possible and influenced countless alt-rock stars along the way. No one sounds like X and no one ever will. John Doe’s Bass, DJ Bonebrake’s drumming, Billy Zoom’s weaponized guitar riffs and Exene Cervenka’s furious vocal performances gained them legions of fans. They were not simply angry, angst-ridden punks; they were intelligent, savvy musicians. Their first four albums (Los Angeles, Wild Gift, Under the Big Black Sun and More Fun in the New World) are not only X’s four best albums, but these treasured full-length recordings also feature the same producer – Ray Manzarek of The Doors. When Manzarek produced X, however, he was not yet known for his producing skills. Nevertheless, he took that then raw club band, X, and helped this four-piece create four masterful studio recordings.
