Leftöver Crack
Leftöver Crack
Leftöver Crack is a political ska punk band that emerged following the breakup of the ska punk band Choking Victim around the year 2000. The band is currently signed to both Fat Wreck Chords and Alternative Tentacles, they consist of Stza Crack (vocals), Ezra Kire (guitar, vocals), Brad Logan (guitar), Alec Baillie (bass guitar), and Ara Babajian (drums). They are typically associated with Morning Glory, and INDK. Leftöver Crack, combined with Choking Victim, Morning Glory and INDK, share a total of seven members between them. These seven musicians are collectively referred to as the "Crack Rock Steady Seven" (CRS7). The line-up of Leftöver Crack changes fairly often, drawing on members of other New York City punk bands such as The Stockyard Stoics and The X-Possibles. Stza, Ezra, Brad, and Alec are currently the band's only completely permanent members. Leftover Crack spans several different music genres including ska, hardcore punk, crust punk, classical music and death metal. Leftover Crack state they write music that is anti-sexist, anti-homophobic, anti-religion, anti-racist, anti-police, anti-fascism, anti-imperialism, anti-capitalism and anti-government.

Bad Cop/Bad Cop
"Shove your labels / we'll flip your tables / and we won't apologize / for causing a scene." – Bad Cop/Bad Cop, My Life The lyric above is essentially a mission statement for Bad Cop/Bad Cop, who prove that the best way to battle sexist stereotypes about women in bands is to play well, and to play hard.

With catchy hooks, three part harmonies, and a drummer who fires her guns harder than most of her male compatriots, Bad Cop/Bad Cop bring to mind the '90s heyday of chicks who actually rocked, from the snarl of The Distillers and synchronized vocals of Dance Hall Crashers to the guitar prowess of The Muffs and wry lyrics of Lunachicks.

All hailing from different parts of the U.S., the foursome met in Los Angeles while playing in bands like Compton SF, The Radio Sweetheart, The D'Maggs, The City, Angry Amputees, and Cunt Sparrer. Eventually realizing that their combined talents and influences would be greater than the sum of their parts, they launched the band in 2011 and quickly became the big sisters of the DIY punk scene, about which Jennie says "We have been so lucky to participate in such a supportive, inclusive, and active scene [with] great people working together and encouraging each other."

After playing at the "Lilith Bear" party during San Francisco Bear Pride 2013, they were supported and encouraged by an unlikely audience member: NOFX's Fat Mike. "After our set, Mike approached and said he liked all the songs and decided then that he was going to do something with our band. I almost crapped myself, and the rest is history," says Dee With a self-released 7" in 2013, the "Boss Lady EP" released on Fat Wreck Chords made its way onto numerous top 10 lists in 2014. Bad Cop/Bad Cop are looking forward to the release of their first full-length album, produced by Fat Mike, out on Fat Wreck Chords 2015.
Naked Aggression
Naked Aggression
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.
