The Alley Cats are a Los Angeles, California-based punk rocktrio featuring Randy Stodola (guitar and vocals). Along with Dianne Chai (bass and vocals) and drummer John McCarthy, they were members of the early L.A. punk rock scene. X'sJohn Doe described the band as having "made some of the toughest, most nihilistic music on the scene."
Reformed as "The Zarkons", they released two albums, Riders In The Long Black Parade (1985) and Between the Idea & the Reality...Falls the Shadow (1988), before disbanding in 1988.
After a 20-year haiatus, Stodola reformed the trio and currently performs as The Alley Cats along with Apryl Cady (bass and vocals) and Matt Laskey (drums). Randy Stodola was recently interviewed by Pete of Suburban Rebels zine on Youtube.
