THE BRAT was a Chicano punk rock ensemble originating from the barrios of the East Los Angeles. The three core members consisted of lead singer Teresa Covarrubias, lead guitarist Rudy Medina, and bass player Sidney Medina. From their conception in 1979 to their eventual break-up in 1985, The Brat contributed to the customization and integration of multiple musical and cultural models that culminated in the distinct East Los Angeles, Chican@ punk sound.
Along with being pioneers in the East Los Angeles punk movement, they are best known for their five song EP Attitudes — released in 1980 through the independent label Fatima Records — while contributing to the understanding of the many ways culture transforms and challenges dominant hegemonic ideologies.
Although their music contained a rich history and formation as the band experienced small-time success, they disbanded in 1985 after the growing frustrations of failing to sign with a major record label and growing apathy towards the scene.
