The Readymades were one of the most influential West Coast Punk and New Wave bands, led by Jonathan Postal. They worked with Sandy Perlman (The Clash, Dictators, Blue Oyster Cult) and courted by Jon Cale of the Velvet Underground.
One of San Francisco's early New Wave bands, The Readymades put out an 18 song album, recorded in 1978, not available on CD before now. Their single 'Electric Toys' was the only independent record to be in regular rotation on KSAN who also broadcast a live half hour of their music. They played with groups including Blondie, Patti Smith, Nico, The Stranglers, The Police, Talking Heads, Roxy Music and DEVO in venues including Oakland Coliseum, Whiskey-A-Go-Go, Cow Palace, Old Waldorf, Starwood, Winterland and the Mabuhay Gardens. It's best to tell the Readymades story though quotes from the press, starting in 1977 and ending in 1979. This release offers the best of the Readymades, a shining jewel that paints a picture of that eras in music.
