Born from the mid-80's Hollywood hard rock underground, Brian Small's Hangmen almost immediately stood out from the pack. With a ragged but right image (Small often appeared in a tattered pair of boots held together by duct tape) and classic songs like “They Dropped a Bomb on My Hometown,” they withstood the de rigeur battering (DOA major label deals, too much dope, innumerable personnel changes) but have never given up the fight, and the band's gutter level purity remains gloriously intact
