The Vectors

The Vectors (1971-1981, 2001-present): a Punk band from Redondo Beach, California, USA.


he archives are incomplete as to the detailed history of these guys. What is recorded is that they came from Fullerton, California in 1971, the years when the L.A. clubs were still influential, and these guys played them all. They came about during the rise of punk rock; old school punk rock to be exact. Their first "hit" would be their Death To Disco single. They hit their peak just as the punk rock movement was beginning to wane with their 1981 release The Vectors EP. Their lyrics challenged the ideals of pop culture (the most famous of which was their aforementioned Death To Disco). But just at their peak they were forced underground with the rest of the punk rock crowd.

The Death To Disco compilation would follow in 2000.

Tired of the modern trends of "B.S. Boy Bands, Brittany Wannabees and Baggy-Trousered White-Boy Rappers", as their bumf says, The Vectors reformed in 2001 to celebrate their anniversary with The Vectors Behind The Orange Curtain: 20 Years Of Hits And Giggles, a sort of 20 year "best of..." compilation. At time of printing the membership featured Dave Gucclone (guitar/vocals), Dan Rosman (a.k.a. Taj Vida; guitar/vocals), Michael Moore (bass), Stan Embry (guitar/backing vocals), and Johnny Pyburn (drums). They have not been heard from since.
