Miami's 20 Best Punk Bands of All Time
Sure, the sludge heads and the metal crowd will always take Cavity into their fold but Cavity's punk rock roots are undeniable. The full-fledged kick in the balls that they planted in Miami during their reign of terror shock-waved itself all the way out to Japan where numerous copy-cat bands wanted to emulate these clean-cut killers. Perennial helmsman Dan Gorostiaga artfully released over a dozen recordings with a revolving cast of players too numerous to mention but who have certainly been in pretty much every band in Miami since 1988. Of note too, is that one of our top 25 Electronic Music Acts of 2014, Ed Matus tenured with the band for a stint.
13. We The Living
WTL released a 7" and a cassette in their short go-around of Miami's '80s punk rock scene. What they masked with hardcore blasts were in reality leanings of funky jazz, New Wave notions and maybe a couple hundred bucks on music lessons their parents might've been persuaded into believing they wasted. Maybe they did but what they left behind is as fun today as it was then.
