Punk Bands: Some Do, Some Don't

Richard Cromelin, Los Angeles Times, 15 April 1978

THE DICKIES and the Heaters have it. The Runaways and the Quick did, but not anymore. Venus & the Razorblades had it for an instant, while Ray Campi has it in England but not here. Devo may or may not have it and the Screamers, the Zippers and the Pop are getting closer to it.
