Fea is the continued ferocity of Girl In A Coma’s Phanie Diaz and Jenn Alva, joined by lead vocalist Letty Martinez and guitarist Aaron Magana. Their melodic brand of riot grrrl chicana punk immediately caught the ear of many iconic collaborators, such as Joan Jett who signed them to Blackheart Records. Producers on their debut LP (self-titled) include Lori Barbero (Babes In Toyland), Laura Jane Grace (Against Me!), and Alice Bag (Bags), all of whom perfectly compliment the band’s fierce exploration of societal, cultural and gender-related issues. Mixing humor with abandon and English with Spanish, Fea empowers listeners and inspires dissidence. Those whose aim to oppress are in FEA’s crosshairs, and resistance has never sounded so infectious!
The Pitch Invasion
Pitch Invasion is a five man mix of the old school punk sounds of the 80’s entwined with the California pop punk attitude of the 90’s. The band delivers an array of fast aggressive riffs and beats that will get anyone ready to destroy their peaceful neighbor’s serenity. The Pitch invasion is melodic at times with songs like Let’s Go and 20 Years to Life. They are also known for their ability to bludgeon their audience with crass 80’s style hardcore. For example, Three Fingers of Fun (use your imagination) and their name sake song Pitch Invasion. The band is fronted by Denver veteran rocker Sputnik Slovenia. His credits include Negative Man, Jet Black Joy and a lucrative solo career under the moniker Chico Tafari. Timmy Invasion on lead guitar, Shane on rhythm guitar and Bart on bass. Both Shane and Bart lend their talents from the Denver skate punk band Frontside Five. Then last the master blaster himself Mr. Joey Chaos on Drums to round out the line up. Collectively these guys have shared the stage with most of their punk & rock n roll heroes.
