Interviews this week
Through all these coincidences and friend of a friend acquaintances, the four formed and began hitting the Bay Area underground club circuit with a fresh blend of nineties’ spirit, and pop sensibility. Combining the crushing distorted guitars of their ‘hero bands’, with sweet and sometimes growling melodies, they found a following of fans and were soon able to climb out of the indie clubs to the more famous venues of Northern and Southern California.
Formed in 2006 on a lark by multi-instrumentalist Jasper Patrick Leach and Hungarian songstress/visual artist Emily Anne Brundige as a psychedelic composite of both member's taste in strange pop music. Recorded and self-released first album "Moist Age" that year. Expanded late 2006/early 2007 (with the addition of guitarist Qonnie Kim, drummers Liam Morrison and Michael "Bonecrusher" Vattuone, and bass player Young Rao) to play live shows with rotating lineups (including impromptu flautists, two drummer lineups, live drum machines, etc). Currently recording material for two different albums, "O Africa, Brave Africa," and another untitled one to be completed later in the year.
