Les Hormones, a three-piece San Francisco punk band with a penchant for messy rockabilly riffs, sort of like the band Buddy Holly might've formed if he had not died in that plane crash, but instead was caught in a time-warp right before the plane went down and transported to Los Angeles circa 1982, where he made friends with X and Dwight Yoakam. Les Hormones' first album was a self-released CD-R thats no longer for purchase (bummer!), but you can pick up a 7" that just came out on local Sea-Tac label Heads Up!. The album contains both French and English versions of the insanely catchy song "Peggy" (see? Somebody in this band is quite possibly Buddy Holly reincarnated). Seattle's finest spastic surf punk band, the Coconut Coolouts, support.
