THE SKUNKS (CANT GET LOOSE)

The Earthquake Shake is about as great of a punk/ rock and roll track that you will find . Formed in late 1977, THE SKUNKS debuted at Raul's club in Austin in FEB '77 with the VIOLATORS, a band that also featured JESSE SUBLETT + KATHY VALENTINE (later of the GO-GO'S), CARLA OLSON & MARILYN DEAN (also later of the TEXTONES). The SKUNKS & VIOLATORS were Austin's two FIRST punk bands. Their first single, Earthquake Shake b/w Can't Get Loose, was recorded in a garage for about $10 but got tons of airplay (& the 45 is worth $200-$300 on ebay now). THE SKUNKS were a powerhouse band with a spine tingling live show.
