Discography

The Injections were an early co-ed punk band based in Coronado and fronted by former Bostonian Bob O'Neil, aka Lou Scum, backed by Bruce Perrault, Joanne Norris (aka Ms. Piggy Gargoyle, drummer from Noise 292), and local bassist Lisa Aston (of the Dinettes and the Xterminators).

"I met Bruce at the Lion's Club," Scum told the local Snare 'zine. "Ms. Gargoyle answered an ad for a crazy Lesbian drummer. She knew Lisa, and Lisa said the Dinettes were boring, so she'd play bass." The group was soon landing gigs at local venues like the Skeleton Club and the Spirit (later known as Brick By Brick).

Their 1980 single "Lies" b/w "Break Down the Prison Walls" was released by Radioactive Records, operated by Jim Woods (aka Jimmy True of the Intentions). Radioactive was also the label behind local singles from the Xterminators and the Executives.

The Injections recorded around a dozen other songs with Woods, though they weren't released until years later, when a cassette collection was released by Bad Compilation Tapes. The band split in 1981. According to Woods at BreakMyFace.com, "Somebody gave Lou some LSD and he ended up first in CMH [County Mental Health] and then back in Boston with his mom."

The band reunited in 1982 for a show at the Bacchanal, as well as doing a recording session that June at Accusound Studios. The tracks remained unreleased until Italian label up Rave Up Records collected them for the 2001 album Prison Walls, which also included the two songs from the original Radioactive Records single.
