The X Factor

I know what you have been saying -there has not been enough late 70's /early 80's LA Punk on CCM recently and do you know what you are right
So here is a track from Wild Gift by X on Slash Records from 1981.This album was produced by Ray Manzarek of the Doors who sadly left us recently.

X consisted of John Doe on bass and vocals, Billy Zoom in Guitars (my nephew watches someone called Tommy Zoom on Cee Beebies - who I'm fairly sure is no relation),D.J Bonebrake on drums and Exene Cervnka on vocals.

X were a big influence on Ryan Adams - so much so that he has their X symbol tattooed prominently on his arm.

  1. Good track. Never heard anything by them, was expecting more of an obvious 1970s punk sound.

  2. Glad at least two of you out there like this!
