Crime - Hot Wire My Heart


On this date in 1977, Crime released their debut single, "Hot Wire My Heart". It was backed by "Baby You're So Repulsive", though there were some copies released on a limited scale in December, 1976. This single is widely credited as being California's first punk single. They released three singles but there were no official albums during their existence (though there was a bootleg called Hate Us Or Love Us, We Don't Give A Fuck). They have since re-formed and released new material in 2007.
