Teenage Head began their journey in Hamilton, Ontario - four teenage friends from Westdale Collegiate practicing in a basement day and night. It was 1975 and there was no catchphrase for the hybrid music they were creating. At the same time in New York, bands like The Ramones were also distilling these influences into a new kind of energy. It wasn't until 1977 that this worldwide movement became known as punk and the music industry would never be the same.
A debut album is released in 1979, distributed by Epic Records Canada (the iconic single, Picture My Face, is one of the most collectible of that era). A year later, the group signs to Attic Records and release Frantic City, the album that puts them on the international radar and influences everyone from Gord Downie and The Tragically Hip to Arcade Fire to actor/singer Hugh Dillon. The hit singles, "Something On My Mind" and "Let's Shake" propel the lp to platinum sales (100,000).
