 Penelope Houston - On Market Street, 2012

Penelope Houston -- On Market Street
on 12" black vinyl LP 180 gram Glitterhouse Germany

Penelope Houston's seventh studio album On Market Street
was incubated for seven years and recorded in seven months
at the San Francisco Bay Area's prestigious Fantasy Studios.
The award-winning singer/songwriter who cut her teeth in the
legendary punk band The Avengers has turned to tales of
revenge and forgiveness, of love both sanctified and illicit.

LP $25 + shipping

The Avengers -- We Are the One EP
b/w I believe in Me + Car Crash

on 7" black vinyl+ picture sleeve
2012 RSD reprint on Superior Viaduct 11$ incl US postage
Their first 7-inch remains an essential artifact of punk rock.
Originally released on the seminal Dangerhouse label,
the EP's three tracks feature visceral sonic attacks, lyrical
manifestos of self-reliance, and classic anthemic choruses.
Cover photography by Marcus Leatherdale. The black vinyl
standard edition comes with the "crucifix" design.

The Avengers -- Paint it Black b/w Thin White Line
on 7" black vinyl+ picture sleeve
2012 RSD reprint on Superior Viaduct 11$ incl US postage
Their second 7-inch packs a 1-2 punch that tears
through the Stones' classic and unleashes the
menace that was only hinted at in the original.
The B-side "Thin White Line" is a musical punch in the
gut with the pay-off of lead-singer Penelope's excellent
"Don't talk about the blood running down my chin" lyric.

The Avengers -- Teenage Rebel b/w Friends of Mine
on 7" black vinyl+ picture sleeve
2012 RSD reprint on Superior Viaduct 11$ incl US postage
"Teenage Rebel" remains the anthem for every disaffected
youth on the planet. Not included on the infamous
Pink album, this song is a two-minute package of pure
adolescent vitriol. Backed with "Friends of Mine," a
declaration of solidarity for the punks of San Francisco.
Recorded in 1978 at the famed Iguana Studios on Folsom St.

Avengers Singles bundle.
