Death Valley Girls

'It’s easy to mistake Death Valley Girls for a biker gang. The opening riff for “No Reason,” from Street Venom basically sounds like Larry plugged his guitar straight into a hornet hive and then kicked it. When the rhythm section kicks in it gives the song a sinister rumble that would make Link Wray proud. Bonnie's snotty, bratty vocal sneer cements their sound with old-school girl-gang attitude.'


Originally formed in the summer of 2004 in Carson, CA, with Ryan Miranda and James Carman, IMAGES (formerly known as Easy Image) decided to make their own interpretation of art through the form of musical expression. During high school, they began throwing their own backyard shows where they met Nick Faciane, who shared similar interests and views of the way a band should be. He was later asked to join IMAGES, in late 2005, which added a new element to help fulfill and master their sound, and finally completing the lineup for the group. After only two years of playing as a band, IMAGES were invited to play with Buzzcocks in 2006 on two separate occasions, one at the House of Blues in Anaheim and the other at the Henry Fonda Theatre in Hollywood. They have again played with the punk legends, opening their west coast tour in June, 2010.

The group had gone through a large cycle of partially successful drummers; but it was after the band travelled to New York City in the autumn of 2009 that James decided to play drums live, while retaining most lead vocal duties. This lineup recorded in Seattle soon afterwards [a three-track promo CD from that session called Limited Edition is now available] and played several shows so successfully that they have continued as a three-piece. They are just completing another round of
Seattle sessions with producer Bruno Modolo.

Thrashing through with a sound that is at once intense, melodic, and danceable, IMAGES are a group of diverse musicians who intertwine their influences, DIY ethic, and performances to create an art that is fresh and inspired in their Los Angeles hometown. Although formed in 2004 as a group of highly ambitious boys fourteen years young, they have since developed into a group mature for their age through years of experience.

IMAGES were recently named one of the top 100 live & unsigned bands of 2010 by Music Connection Magazine.
