      In the late 70’s La Peste ruled Boston as one of the most dynamic and creative punk bands. The power trio packed them in to local punk venues like the Rat, Cantones, and the Paradise. Here is a video of “Spy Master” filmed in Boston 1979:

      John Peel the famous English DJ who kept a battered wooden box with his precious selection of 7-inch singles that meant more to him then any others did. In that box was La Peste’s “Better Off Dead” You can see “Better Off Dead” at KINODV here:

      Another Peel favorite was X-Ray Spex fronted by main muse Poly Styrene. X-Ray Spex was one of the most unique and inventive groups of the British punk era. Check out the clip of “Warrior in Woolworths” filmed at the Old Grey Whistle Test in 1978:
