Teenage Head came together in the early 70's when four young guys from Westdale High School in Hamilton, Ontario decided to form a band. Gord Lewis, Frank Kerr, Steve Mahon, and Nick Stipanitz weren't buddies, but each had a strong interest in the same type of music. By May 1978 they released their first independant single "Picture My Face" and quickly became part of the scene exploding in Toronto. The legendary self-titled debut album followed a year later, but despite it's "muddy" production, it turned the heads of many because it perfectly captured the spirit of the era. What's more, it showcased the band's talent as writers, with the ability to craft songs that would continue to stand the test of time; even by today's standards. And unlike many others from that era, they could perform live; and they did throughout the "new music" circuit of clubs of Southern Ontario, including the short-lived Crash 'n Burn club and the notorious "Last Pogo" festival. Fans were captivated by Gord's intensity, Steve's indifference, and Frankie's (now known as Frankie Venom) "real wild child" frontman persona.
