The Generators - El Cortez
March 16, 2019 - Brooklyn

21 years and over The origin of Los Angeles' influential punk band The Generators dates back to 1997, just a few miles from the skyscrapers of downtown. In the early days, the band hung out and wrote music in an old vacant pizza oven factory, churning out their first batch of songs, which echoed the sentiments of the 1977 Punk spirit. They quickly got attention from the owners of the infamous Triple X Records, who were known best for their 1980's roster that included Social Distortion, The Vandals, GBH and Jane's Addiction. Without haste, the indie punk label put The Generators into the recording studio where they produced their first album ironically titled Welcome To The End. Now, almost eighteen years since the days of making punk songs in the old pizza oven factory, The Generators still carry on strong. In 2014, the band released their tenth full-length album titled Life Gives-Life Takes on their new record label Randale Records.
