The Avengers

There are three bands and one radio show sharing the name The Avengers: 1) The Avengers were formed in San Francisco, in the first wave of American Punk. Penelope Houston was the lead singer, primary songwriter, and her persona was a large part of the draw for the act. The other band members were James Wilsey (bass), D. Furious (drums), and Greg Ingraham (guitar). Critic Greil Marcus once said The Avengers were, “…San Francisco’s best punk band - in their moments, they were, you knew, better than any other band playing that night anywhere in the world.”

Their first single, 'Night of Fear' was released in 1966 and was the first in a line of memorable hits penned chiefly by Roy Wood.

Howlin' Circus

“Conjuring images of cattle ranching in the Summer, Howlin’ Circus combine raucous guitars with melodic vocals, tales of trepidation and unexpected harmonies. Shedding leaves on London’s Autumnal high it wasn’t until the Winter that the band formed, after co-writers Jamie Harper and Jafar Hassan brought forth their love for blues, rock ‘n’ roll and poetry. It is in this era of instant gratification that the band, completed soon after by the bass and drums of Charles Sanders and Ramy Kozman...
