About This Act

From AllMusic:

One of the early acts on the New York City punk/new wave scene, the Miamis were a sharp, tight, and funny rock band who often graced the stage at CBGB, Max's Kansas City, and the Mudd Club in the mid- to late '70s, sharing stages with the likes of Blondie, Talking Heads, the Ramones, Television, and the New York Dolls. The Miamis, however, came along at a time when the sound of "punk rock" hadn't yet been firmly codified and within a few years, their explicitly pop-oriented sound would seem dated and stodgy when hardcore began to up the ante on punk rock, leaving this fine band without a publicly available catalog of recordings.
