The Avengers were a San Francisco-based hardcore/punk group which formed in 1977. The original line-up featured Penelope Houston on vocals; guitarist Greg Westermark (aka Greg Scars) on guitar; bassist Jonathan Postal; and Danny Furious (aka Danny Fearless) on drums. The band played its first gig at the Mabuhay Gardens in June, 1977. At a later point, bassist Jonathan left to be replaced by Jimmy Wilsey (aka Jimmy Blaze). Think '60s girl-group and Motown, filtered through the attack of garage-rock and anthemic punk 'n' roll.
