Welcome To The End
For the first time ever on vinyl, the 1998 debut release "Welcome to the End" from The Generators. (With a NEVER before released bonus track "Destroy Hollywood"). This is '77 Punk Rock with a strong Oi! influence in the likes of: The Clash, Angelic Upstarts and Cock Sparrer. Vocalist Doug Kane is a long time Southern California punk and has his musical roots date back to 1983 with his first band "Doug and the Slugs". Co-founder and guitarist Mike Snow fronted his band from the late 80's; "The Way". The Generators rose from the ashes of Schleprock (also on Dr Strange Records) which toured the U.S. with The Specials as well as Rancid, NOFX, Bad Religion and VooDoo Glow Skulls to name just a few. The Generators in the meantime have toured even farther and wider; Europe (8 times), Canada, the US (several times) and next to Australia. They have a huge fan base, they should, they've released 10 full lengths so far! But this first lp has always been the Doc's all-time favorites. Not a bad song in the bunch, each song an anthem!
