On October 30th was a major day for music when The Scenics put out their first studio cd since the 1970â€™s. Toronto punk rock survivors showed that they have more tricks up their sleeves. Well, I had to see if I can beg their PR people to get Andy on our site to submit a list. I know they are big Velvet Underground fans, which who isnâ€™t but I had to see what else inspired him.
here are my most influential albums, more or less.
