Jim Ladd and David Weiderman
In 1980 x emerged from the Los Angeles punk scene as the most critically lauded American band of that decade,
both revitalizing and vindicating the West Coast scene, and putting Los Angeles back on the map with their
landmark single "Los Angeles."  The quintessential punk rockers quickly grew into a world-class, rock n roll
band with their cutting edge, thought -provoking music that reflected the lifestyle of an unseen subculture.
The group's frenzied rockabilly hybrid redefined the punk revolution taking its inspiration from Wood Guthrie,
'50's Rockabilly and The Doors' Jim Morrison, while its musical range invited comparisons to Charles Bukowski
and Francis Bacon.
