Pedal Strike

This is L.A., not “L.A.” Does that make sense? This isn’t television. This isn’t Hollywood. This isn’t even the L.A. punk that has received attention from scholars and shoe companies. Pedal Strike is self-propelled, L.A. punk. This band is one of those rare examples of how good it can be when it all comes together to shirk clichés and genre pigeonholes. Community over competition. Fuck your condos; this is development of the mind and body. These guys set up their own shows, release their own album, and have helped jumpstart their scene. It’s a manifestation of how engaging and fun a band can be while still standing for something. Pedal Strike represents what’s happening on the streets of this city, in between the lanes. The work you have to put in just to create some space for yourself, with detractors and cops on every corner. Defeat isn’t an option.
And then there’s the sound: ripping, garagey, surf-punk guitar, tailed by a rhythm section that predates high school, with The Beast From The Northeast leading the charge. This is Los Angeles. Pedal Strike! Ride your bike!
