The Authorities Are Coming For You! Formed in the fall of 1978 but never played live until February 2nd, 1979, (the day Sid Vicious overdosed in New York City), this scrappy young band unleashed such a blistering bombardment of punk rock on the good citizens of Stockton, California that 'ol Sid was quickly forgotten. They were asked to reform by members of Pavement for a fortuitous one-off at the "All Tomorrows Parties" festival and have taken the show on the road once more. Enduring long periods of stagnation and countless personnel changes, The Authorities persist to this day, an angry and unrepentant beast that will never die. You can run but you can't hide from the Authorities!
