Nowadays, thanks to the Internet, we're all more or less used to the idea that our wacky teenage hijinks can be recorded for posterity and live on forever. But back in 1979, when Scott Telles and his Bellaire High School buds formed first-wave Houston punk act Vast Majority, analog immortality was probably the furthest thing from their minds. They were just trying to jam out like their safety-pinned heroes and get in on the political and cultural outrage of the day.
More than 35 years later, though, folks from around the world are still getting off to their teenaged outbursts. Case in point: Italian label Rave Up Records recently reissued the bulk of Vast Majority's recorded output, all of which fits on a single LP. To celebrate, Telles put the band back together -- or something like it, anyway -- and booked a gig at Walters on Friday to revel in the auditory nostalgia with some old pals and maybe sell a couple of records.
