A SHOUT OUT TO LA's 1970's VARRIOS!




Back in the 1970's un guato de Chicano VARRIOS were already posted up since Olden Times representing the Old Stilo de Vida everywhere and in every SIDE and sub-division of the City and the County of LA.

Those varrios around from way back then were not nearly as numerous as they are today; especially since the Gang explosion that took place in the 1980's with all those varrios that got it together from the Football Teams, the Tag Bangers and the Stoner Locos generation eras..

Most LA varrios prior to the 1980's claimed a much larger territory; Mas Grande than those which followed up later in the decades of the 80's and 90's.,

Aside from the West Central LA, the East Side and the South Side LA areas, few other sections of the urbanized county streets were as congested with that many a mess of varrios.

The Harbor Area (HxA), the North Valley (SFV), East Valley (SGV), West Los (WLA), North East (NELA) and South East (SELA) had some very old old varrios representing from way way back, but there were whole wide tracks of streets in all those areas and parts of town hat were scant of any varrios claiming.

Back then, the same as nowadays ~> if a varrio was known about and heard about in all the crazy corners of the county, that carried some real heavy weight behind it; it meant that the varrio was recognized as being among the most chingone; So being in the list of the "heard about" varrios was of utmost importance; because in the varrio world ~> it is a sign that the varrio has made its mark ~> Se dejo caer and has been around!

 So, "Importa Madres" to get your varrio up on the roll-call; and it matters most of all that you hold up your Varrio with pride!

Most of those 1970's Varrios are still around still kicking up dust; so in a ways ~> a roll-call from the 1980's or 1990's varrios lista would seem like you're repeating the same old ones around since back then; Never-the-less, those 1970's varrios in my mind, and then maybe because of my generation, I feel like they deserve their own page in history; They deserve their names to be remembered., and a shout out for each and every one of those old varrio names with respects would be a start; Que no?

From the 1970's era ~> starting out with the North East LA area: A shout out to friend and foe Varrios alike

90s tagbanger... said...

1980s Tagbaner varrios? That didnt happen until the early to mid 90s...get your facts straight.

SMEAR said...

Most of the tagbanging crews that would eventually become varrios in the early to mid 90s started in the late 80s, AOB...ALL OUT BOMBING, which would become AVENUE OXFORD BOYS in 1993, started in 1988...ended up having a lot of beef with both rival crews and gangs (latin, black and asian gangs)...so by the time that tagger green-light hit in 1993, AOB was reading to become a varrio instead of getting clicked with traditional gangs that wanted to absorb AOB such as DFS (Drifters) or 18St...AOB set up shop and took up a hood that stretched from;

Western(w)
Normandie(E)
3rd st.(N)
Wilshire(S)

That's a typical story of how the tagbanging crews of the early 90s went hood on everybody...those that didnt get sucked into the dead end vortex of become an established varrios newest click...struck out on their own to show the competition what was up...

Sorry about my disrespectful first statement where I told you to "get your facts straight.", that was totally uncalled for. I hope this information helps...
