The site of the Crash 'n' Burn was arguably Canada's first punk club, located at 15 Duncan St., Toronto, Ontario, at the corner of Duncan and Pearl. It existed for only a month and a half and was closed by the end of the Summer of 1977. In it's time this was a venue with an important role in supporting the eruption of punk music in Toronto, featuring such essential first-wave Canadian punk bands as The Viletones, Dead Boys, the Diodes, and Teenage Head. The site was occupied at the time by an artists collective comprised of students from neighbouring OCAD (Ontario College of Art and Design) called CEAC (Centre for Experimental Art and Communication), which also points to the importance of students from this school in contributing to the history of punk in Canada.
