The Unknowns

This unusual L.A. group combined stripped-down punk energy and gloomy modern lyrical settings using the reverb-heavy instrumental acoustic guitar sound from the Endeavors and early browse groups, and a dash of rockabilly. Following a unsatisfactory EP on Sire (Fantasy Series), the group released a uncooked, self-titled recording on the tiny indie Invasion in 1982 that rates among the best possible obscure new influx releases of that time period with its solid songwriting, dripping damp production values, wonderful drumming, and sharp Mosrite acoustic guitar sound. Lead vocalist Bruce Joyner (who co-wrote a lot of the materials with guitarist Tag Neill) offers released many albums with support organizations the Plantations as well as the Tinglers.
