From The Final Vinyl:
Thundertrain came from Natick, Mass. and became one of Boston's early punk stars. They released their first single in 1975 and by 1976 they scored a hit with "Hot For Teacher!" It was one of the first indie singles to have an impact during the 70's underground rock scene. Thundertrain became headliners all over New England and were written up in 16 Magazine, Creem and even Time. They did shows with The Cars, the David Johansen Group, The Runaways and many other bands of the day. After years of non-stop touring Thundertrain broke up in 1980.
