Crime

Crime formed in 1976 in San Francisco, California. Ricky James (Drums), Frankie Fix (Gtr/Vox), Ron The Ripper Greco (Bass) & Johnny Strike (Gtr/Vox) may well hold the dubious honour of being the first US Punk group to release an independent record, the self-financed "Hot Wire My Heart/Baby You're So Repulsive".

With their raw and energetic sound, Crime quickly became pioneers of the punk movement. Their self-financed debut single, "Hot Wire My Heart/Baby You're So Repulsive," marked a significant milestone in American punk history.

Inspired by bands like Electric Eels, The Weirdos, and The Gizmos, Crime's music was characterized by aggressive guitar riffs and rebellious lyrics. They paved the way for future punk acts with their DIY approach and independent spirit.
