222's - She Wants Revenge lp (Rave Up Records ITALY)


"The 222s were among Canada’s earliest punk rock bands, releasing the
very first DIY indie single to come out of their hometown Montreal back
in 1978, the now highly collectible 'The First Studio Bomb b/w I Love
Susan' on Rebel Records. They were certainly the first legitimate
Quebecois punk band, all members, with the exception of singer Chris
Barry, being French-Canadian, with French being the working language of
the primarily unilingual group. When the 222s first started up in the
spring of 1977 there were no venues in Montreal that would even consider
booking them, so early on their gigs were primarily underground
affairs, usually taking place in artist’s lofts or industrial spaces
that had long been abandoned. For the style- conscious 222s, who most
certainly lived the life they sung about, just walking up the street to
get to one of these gigs could be a perilous affair, if only because
their clothing, considered offensive to far too many people, was often
enough to incite violence among the punk-hating music fans of the day.
Over the course of their carrer, the 222s toured Canada as extensively,
as any band could (Girlschool, the Stranglers, the Professionals and
others), and even in the USA where they toured with the Nuclear
Accidents and ventured off to play at the famous Max`s Kansas City in
New York City on several occasions. The band split up in 1981 but
reformed in 2012, so keep your eyes open, the kids are back in town!!!!
In the meantime, grab this AMAZING all studio Lp!!!! Absolutely 'a must'
for every true punk fan!" - Rave Up
