Angry Samoans TODAY
Do the Angry Samoans still exist? Well, sort of--which is the same status as always.
The Samoans have been gigging again since Spring 1996. In 2007 they did a whirlwind tour of Germany... California towns covered include Gilman St./Berekeley, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Petaluma, Sacramento, Sonoma, Gilroy, Davis, San Jose, San Diego, Corona/Riverside County, and San Joaquin Valley towns Manteca, Oakhurst, and Sonora.
JFA (Jodie Foster's Army) is a hardcore punk band formed in 1981, with roots in Arizona and in Southern California skateboard culture. The original members include Brian Brannon (vocals), Don Redondo (guitar), Michael Cornelius (bass), and Mike "Bam-Bam" Sversvold (drums). Alan Bishop of Sun City Girls also played bass for a while. The band was pivotal in the development of the skate punk and Skate Rock scenes. Over the years, the lineup has included many bass players and drummers but the core of Brannon and Redondo has remained constant.
Naked Aggression was formed in Madison, WI by Guitarist/Song Writer Phil Suchomel and Singer Kirsten Patches in early 1991, during the Gulf War. They where both classical music students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, who were discontent with the confines of a conservative music department, So, they started jamming together in the dingy basement of their house in the student ghetto. They had an array of people play bass and drums with them. About a year later they left Madison and moved out to California and spent nine months up in the East Bay/ San Francisco area. For the past three years they've based themselves in L.A. Recently Joe Garcia joined them on Bass and Aaron Austin joined them on Drums.
Destruction Made Simple
Fronted by one of punk's coolest DIY maniacs, Mr. Raul Landeros, DESTRUCTION MADE SIMPLE got home from the 2003 Van's Warped Tour, and didn't slow down for one second. They got right back on the road with their friends The Unseen, Avenged Sevenfold, Sick Of It All, and Western Waste. Their A-F debut, "Terror Stricken Youth", is available now, and you can order it here. DESTRUCTION MADE SIMPLE has been labeled "the hardest working band in punk rock" by members of BAD RELIGION, but after hearing their new CD this phrase absolutely needs to be amended to "the hardest working and ROCKING band in punk rock!" Their musical assault has already taken them across the continent, sharing stages with the likes of Anti-Flag, Leftover Crack, and The Eyeliners, ultimately dropping them smack dab in the middle of the 2002 Vans Warped Tour. Pretty impressive for a 2 year old band!
