Formed in 1977 in a Boston basement, Unnatural Axe became fixtures at The Rat, Cantone's and The Paradise, and brought their chaotic two and three chord punk throughout New England and New York, including CBGB's. Between 1977 and 1980, Unnatural Axe played countless shows and opened for bands such as The Dictators, The Plasmatics, Mission of Burma, and even The Police and Squeeze. Breaking up in 1980, Unnatural Axe has reformed numerous times for shows over the years and still occasionally play. Despite attracting the attention of Arista Records, Unnatural Axe only released a single 7" EP in the three years they were originally together - one that is highly sought after today. Since then, they have been featured on the Mass Ave comp released by Rhino, and on one of the highest-rated Killed By Death compilations, as well as other releases. Bands from around the world have covered Axe songs, including Italy's UFO Dictatorz, France's Splash Four, and most notably, The Dim Stars with Thurston Moore and Richard Hell. Coming soon to DVD and VOD from Shiny Object.
