The Rockpile West, Toronto, ON
What happens when two punk rock veterans meet in Austin, Texas and, with a roll of the dice, decide to head west to Los Angeles? The birth of Junkyard, a band with a sound like Godzilla in a foul mood tanked up on cheap wine.
Nobody quite knew what to think of these longhaired, tattooed bikers singing such soulful, yet ballsy, rock music when they arrived on the scene in Los Angeles in 1987. They stood out amongst the "Hair Bands" that populated the music scene at the time....a distinction the band wore as a badge of honor.
