Band Info:
Strongest album: The Unboxed Set. One disc contains everything the band ever recorded in the studio.
Weakest album: See above.

They took their smirks from the Dictators and Blue Oyster Cult while presaging the likes of the Dead Milkmen and the Beastie Boys, and were musically tighter, catchier, and more genuinely deranged than any of the above. The Angry Samoans are the most offensive and disgusting band you'll probably ever like. Founded in 1978 by a couple of screwed up Arkansas brothers who moved out to L.A. to become part of the burgeoning punk scene, they found a couple of like-minded locals and became the most obnoxious and hated band on that scene, which says a lot. They released a song insulting KROQ DJ Rodney Biggenheimer, who unfortunately had a lot of clout and power and got the Samoans banned from every important club in L.A. Which meant that the Samoans weren't featured on the otherwise inclusive Decline Of Western Civilization documentary, and is likely the reason you haven't heard of'em. Whatever, being more offensive than Fear and tighter than the Circle Jerks (and writing better words than the Germs), the Samoans stood head and shoulders above their contemporaries (except for X and Black Flag, of course), as one of the rare worthwhile punk bands to emerge from L.A. Musically the Samoans took standard metallized riffs and triple-timed them for something called "hardcore", only clear, distinct, and catchy as opposed to the simplistic thudda-thudda-thudda of most hardcore morons. What the Samoans originally set out to do, given their relative age (Metal Mike Saunders was 26!), was to recreate '60s garage punk for the modern age. This worked out brilliantly on the first two records, but became a mistake on the last two, which abandoned '80s punk altogether for a literal take on '60s punk. And then there's the lyrics. It helps to, um, "appreciate" the Samoans' "irony" if you're a straight white male like myself - everyone else should avoid if you're sensitive, 'cause you will definitely be offended in many sundry and various manners. Especially if you're a girl (the cover of their first EP is of a girl with an axe splitting her head open), and even more if you're a.....homosexual. These guys' repeated obsession with "pathetic male queers" and "faggots" leaves a really bad aftertaste in these more tolerant times. It begs the question - are these guys in denial? Naw, probably not; more than likely, they're just assholes who can't get laid 'cause they treat girls like shit, and so they get pissed off and take it out on gays, which is one of the traditional ways most young males with heads up their asses deal with their sexual frustrations. The Samoans disturb me more than G.G. Allin or the Meatmen because I actually enjoy the Samoans' records. There's no way getting around it - you're going to have to justify to yourself pogoing to "tunes" this hatefilled and offensive. But good rock and roll ought to disturb you, and if you insist on music with a "positive message", go listen to Natalie Merchant. The Samoans were the garbage rock of Lester Bangs' depraved dreams, full of self-hatred and loathing that turned its insecurity and rage upon everyone and everything in the world 'cause it was just there to be hated. The Samoans were a joke band, but one of those dark, sick jokes that you makes you feel uncomfortable about yourself for falling on the floor laughing at it. There's a little Angry Samoan inside each and every one of us.....

The only two websites out there for the Samoans are by former members of the band. Go directly to this interview at Perfect Sound Forever; it will provide you with a history of the band, both Kevin Saunders' and Gregg Turner's versions, and link you to their personal websites.
