Los Olvidados

Los Olvidados, which translates to The Forgotten, were an early '80s skate punk from San Jose featuring Ray Stevens II (later of Clay Wheels). Pretty much the entire band also performed in The Drunk Injuns. This compilation LP came out in 2002 as part of Alternative Tentacles 1980's Skate Punk series (also featuring JFA, Free Beer and The Drunk Injuns). As the cover states, this LP collects recordings from '81-'83, some of which were released on various comps such as Not So Quiet on the Western Front, Skate Rock Vol. 1, and Blazing Wheels and Barking Trucks. Those comps were, until this compilation and a 2001 CD with much of the same material, the only publicly released recordings of this great skate punk band. The cover features the late Ruben Orkin in a backyard pool.
