Best known for his work as a producer on the L.A. punk scene, Geza X also cut one bizarre solo album that remains a cult item for scene aficionados. Born to Hungarian parents, Geza (his real first name) adopted the "X" moniker in tribute to [a=Malcolm X], and got his first recording studio job in the mid-'70s. He soon moved on to become the soundman at the legendary L.A. punk club the Masque, and spread the word that he was interested in producing. The [a=Germs]' [a=Darby Crash] tapped him to produce the band's landmark debut single "Lexicon Devil," and from there X went on to helm seminal Cali-punk moments like the [a=Dead Kennedys]' "Holiday in Cambodia" and [a=Black Flag]'s "Six Pack." He also worked with [a=Weirdos, The], the [a=Avengers], and new waver [a=Josie Cotton] ("Johnny Are You Queer?"), among others, and played as an instrumentalist in both the [a=Bags, The] (a female-fronted group who wore bags over their heads) and [a=Deadbeats, The].
