Angry Samoans

The Angry Samoans are an American punk rock band in the first wave of American punk. Formed in August 1978 in Los Angeles, California by early 1970s rock writer "Metal" Mike Saunders and his sibling lead guitarist bonze blayk, along with Gregg Turner (another rock writer, for Creem Magazine during the late 1970s-mid 1980s) and original recruits bassist Todd Homer and drummer Billy Vockeroth. During 1978 both Turner and Saunders had played in the Los Angeles punk band VOM, which issued a posthumous 5-song EP Live at Surf City on White Noise Records in early summer 1978. In 1969 in hometown Little Rock, Saunders and Samoans guitarist bonze had cut a 14-song highschool garage-rock album I'm a Roadrunner Motherfucka (unissued until the late 1990s) under a twice-used local band name the Rockin' Blewz, and in 1975 Saunders briefly played in an embroyonic backing line-up for 1950s rockabilly cult artist Ray Campi before moving back to Arkansas for two years (pursuant to a second college degree). Bassist Todd Homer had played in 1977 Masque-era band Jesus Prick, and drummer Bill Vockeroth was a veteran of the Pasadena "backyard kegger party" cover band circuit.
