The Diodes


On this date in 1978, The Diodes released their self-titled debut album. It contained the single, "Red Rubber Ball". The Toronto band was one of the first Canadian punk bands. Their first single, "Raw" which contained only one of their songs (it was a shared single with the all-female Toronto punk band The Curse on the other side) was not included. They disbanded in 1982 after three albums. They have gotten together for reunion shows since.
