There seems to be a lot of talk about keyboards and synths lately so I thought that I'd post these guys because they are a great example of punk played on synths. They were an LA band from 77... blah blah blah... no guitars just synth+keyboard. They didn't release any albums but if you do some searching you can download a compilation of live bootlegs and demos.

****in amazing band. Along with the Weirdos, they are the best thing to come out of the L.A. Punk scene.
I love all forms of Rock 'n' Roll, past and NOT present

Yeah, I actually got into them after I got The Lost Sounds s/t because I wanted to hear some more synth stuff.
^^And they are one of my favorite LA bands too. Definitely up there with The Dils and X for my top 3

Screamers were a solid band. Synthpunk is a wonderful genre that's been waiting to blow up.
