One of Detroit’s first punk bands. Cinecyde formed in 1976. Most music enthusiasts aren’t aware that much of the Detroit punk movement of the late 1970s emerged from the suburbs rather than the city. Cinecyde came from The Oakland County city of Clawson. Much of the music of Cinecyde revolved around disgust for the current state of the music industry and their love for B movie horror films. The release of their first 45 rpm Gutless Radio on Tremor Records in 1977 is considered Detroit's first punk record. Written by lead Singer Gary Reichel whose disgust for local radio, was kind of a slap at the face of the industry.
