The Statics – Rebel Like Me E.P. 7″

statics_rebel.jpgObscure trio from Canada that recorded the titel track and the second track to be included on a compilation called “Missussauga Live”. The Statics where the only punk act on that comp. Canadas Ugly Pop Records released these two tracks and a third one on a 7inch in 2001. “Rebel Like Me” is the only great song. And what a song it is. The second one is bad rock n roll and the third is poor heavy metal. “…the struggle to bring punk rock to Mississauga was an uphill battle all the the way, and in late summer/early fall of 1981 The Statics packed it in. Mississauga’s lone punk rock sons were no more.”

  2. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    I was actually wondering about the accent Dylan! I thought he was trying to sound a bit too “British Punk”. But thanks for clearing this up.

    Wow. Ross Johnson (drummer) is my father. They would have been really big if they stuck with it.

  4. Johan says:

    I think the vocalist sounds a bit like gg allin, when gg still did good songs.

  7. Dean Stillie (guitar) says:

    It was fun. I wish I did stick it out longer, but there are alot more songs in the collection, But I don’t have access to them. Anyone out them with them recorded needs to put them up!

    Holy shit! How did i miss this? One the best punk rock songs i’ve ever heard. I agree with the GG Allin comparison…
