Critic's Pick Release Date: 2010-12-22

A little more than a year after forming in 1979, the Adolescents released an eponymous debut (which was allegedly recorded in four days and is also known as the Blue Album). Among the jagged gems on Adolescents is “Amoeba” — a revered song that helped establish the influential punk supergroup. Members of Agent Orange, Social Distortion, the Detours, and the Germs (including Pat Smear — formerly of Nirvana and currently of Foo Fighters) can all be found on the “Adolescents/Adz Family Tree” (check it out here: theadolescents.com/about-the-adolescents). A four-year vacation (’82-’86) led to the band’s official breakup (1989), which was followed by a 2001 reunion tour (timed with the 20th anniversary of Adolescents) and a reunion album — OC Confidential (2006). All but two of the Adolescents’ founding members (John O’Donovan and Peter Pan flew the coop before “Amoeba” was ever released) hit the Korova Tuesday night with support from Austin’s Lower Class Brats. The Adolescents’ fifth album, The Fastest Kid Alive, is scheduled for release “sometime in 2011.” $12, 8pm, the Korova, 107 E Martin, facebook.com/thekorova.
