THE TESTORS

Sonny Vincent is one of the small group of New York City musicians who were instrumental in the creation of what became known as Punk rock in the mid-1970s.
Vincent formed the Testors in 1976 with Gene Sinigalliano (guitar) and Gregory R (drums). They played the legendary New York clubs such as Max's Kansas City and CBGB with groups such as Mink DeVille, Teenage Jesus & The Jerks, The Cramps and Suicide, and toured nationwide with the Dead Boys. Testors released a 7" single, "Together" b/w "Time Is Mine" on Bleeker Bob's "Drive-In" label.
In 1981, AND THEN THE Testors disbanded . I KNOW THERE'S BEEN A COUPLE OF RECORDS COME OUT WITHIN THE LAST FEW YEARS THAT CLAIM THEY HAVE THE COMPLETE DISCOGRAPHIES ON THEM. ITS ALL GREAT STUFF AND DEFINITELY WORTH PICKING UP.
