One of the first post-Runaways girl groups, the Dishrags were there almost from the start, forming as 15-year-olds in Victoria, B.C. in 1977 and then hopping across the Georgia Strait to become a part of the burgeoning Vancouver punk scene. The girls debuted on July 30th, 1977, backing up the Furies at Vancouver's legendary Japanese Hall. The threesome - guitarist and singer Jade Blade, bassist Dale Powers and drummer Scout - rode a wave of popularity out west, performing regularly at places like the Smilin' Buddha and the Japanese Hall, including "a punishing, sneer-filled set"* supporting the Clash at the Commodore on January 31st, 1979.

The Dishrags recorded the acerbic anti-love song 'I Don't Love You' for the excellent Vancouver Complication before unleashing this swell debut in 1979. The plodding title track on the three-song EP pulls back on the controls somewhat. But the band get back to basics on the more frenetic flip side, with the gloriously amateurish punk of 'Love is $&!#' and 'Tormented', each clocking in at the perfunctory two minutes or less. They followed up in 1980 with the more polished Death in the Family EP, co-produced by the Pointed Sticks' Bill Napier-Henry and released just as they were breaking up (irony, anyone?). What's more, in a final blast of in-your-face mockery, the gals released it on fake - and rather convincing - RCA Victor labels.
