The Diodes are a Canadian punk rock band formed in 1976 in Toronto. They released five albums: Diodes (1977), Released (1979), Action-Reaction (1980), Survivors (1982), and Time/Dam­age Live 1978 (2010)  . They signed to Columbia Records in Canada shortly after, in August 1977, releasing their self-titled debut album,'The Diodes' in October 1977. The release was produced by Bob Gallo and was accompanied by a single with two tracks from the LP. The A-side of the single featured a punk-rock deconstruction of the Cyrkle's sixties hit "Red Rubber Ball", (which was co-written by Paul Simon). The LP also included a cover of the Max Frost & The Troopers' "Shape Of Things To Come" done in a similar style, along with eight original tunes, written by the band.

Comes with printed inner sleeve. B5 is titled "Shape Of Things To Come" on the center label and is alternately titled "Shapes Of Things To Come" on the back sleeve. Recorded and mixed at: Manta Sound, Toronto. All songs (c) 1977 Gaderen Songs.

The Diodes were a Canadian punk/new wave band formed in 1976. They released three albums: Diodes (1977), Released (1979) and Action-Reaction (1980, re-released in 2012 on CD with 6 bonus tracks on Bongo Beat Records). One of the first Toronto bands playing that style of music, The Diodes helped foster the scene in the city.

In most diodes, a white or black painted band identifies the cathode into which electrons will flow when the diode is conducting Structure of a vacuum tube diode. For silicon diodes, the built-in potential is approximately . V (. V for germanium and . V for Schottky). Thus, if an external voltage greater than and opposite to the built-in voltage is applied, a current will flow and the diode is said to be "turned on" as it has been given an external forward bias.

If Canadians weren't listening, the rest of the world was - copies of the album made their way to both England and America, and the band wound up opening for some of the biggest names in the punk world shortly after that. Twenty years after the album's initial release, it was finally paired up with the band's second album on the Tired of Waking Up Tired CD. Track Listing - Disc 1. Title/Composer.
