The Weirdos are in that camp. They were on the cutting edge of cutting up tacky thrift-store clothes and making your hair look like a smashed Crayola 64-pack. More important, they released one of the best singles of that era: "We Got the Neutron Bomb." A couple more tasty, small-run singles and misfired new-wave EPs came and went, and it's been sporadic reunion tours since. But their backfiring laser-gun punk sound and legendary live shows still hold influence in the punk world. They're back for another reunion swing, replacing only the bass player -- with Circle Jerk/Thelonious Monster Zander Schloss. No word on any new material, but they'll be hawking a new compilation of unreleased live and studio stuff from 1977-'89.
