Tales Of Terror

Tales Of Terror was a semi-legendary Sacramento punk band known for noisy metallic tunes and chaotic drunken shows. Their sole album was released in 1984 on San Francisco's CD Presents label and is pretty tough to find these days (anybody with an extra copy get in touch!). Buried inside one of the all-time greatest punk rock album covers are 12 loud songs influenced by My War-era Black Flag, the Dead Boys, Flipper and probably more than a bit of the hard stuff. Here's an old Thrasher video of the band playing a couple tunes intercut with some classic SF street skating courtesy Mark Gonzales, Steve Rocco and Jesse Martinez...
