"The female Johnny Ramone"
Guitarist for all-girl hardcore punk band Pantychrist (www.pantychrist.net). I also do my own music, which can be completely different from what I play with the band. I have a punk rock background but my style is unique, with influences ranging from psychedelic to metal to emo and all points in between.
I have a lot of incomplete songs from over the years that I would eventually like to finish. What I need most to finish these songs is a singer and drummer. I'll be posting a lot of these tracks (most of which are rehearsal recordings) in the hopes of finding collaborators to get all this stuff done.
Bands I played with: Pantychrist, Slander, The Johnnys, Fidget, The Impatiens, Trans Love Airways
My bands and projects: Emma-O, Kundalunatic, Narciscissors, Dronica, The Gloom, Pimpinella, Underwire

FADE OUT (rehearsal with Pimpinella)
FADE OUT (rehearsal with Pimpinella) Track number: 1 Year: 2004 Album: The Rehearsal Tapes Genre: Rock
This a taped rehearsal recording going way back to 2004 or so. It consisted of myself on guitar and back-up vocals, drummer Ziggy Sweet and Joe on lead guitar and lead vocals (both from Buffalo, NY). It was originally a really long jam-song, and pretty much written on the spot. I wrote the riffs and the guys added their magic. It has grown to be one of my favourite songs, and I've been wanting to work on it for a long time. So I just spent the past two days cutting and pasting the song and adding two more guitar tracks, one rhythm and one extra lead. But I haven't mixed the actual sound yet, so it's still rough. I just got some new headphones and speakers, so I will be working on getting a better mix. But for now, enjoy this raw version!
JUMP SHIP AND SWIM (written with Fidget)
JUMP SHIP AND SWIM (written with Fidget) Track number: 2 Year: 2006 Album: Don't Fidget, Missy! Genre: Rock
Here's a tune I wrote the music for back in 2006-7, when I played in an all-girl band called Fidget. We were pop-punk, really commercial sounding. Supposedly Hollywood Records was interested in us, but sadly, like a lot of bands, bad management was our downfall. Our singer, Nicole, had the lyrics and vocal melody worked out and I wrote the music to it. Nicole then took the demo to L.A. and had Mike Krompass (Smashmouth, Jordan Knight, Natasha Bedingfield, et al) and Randy Cooke (Melissa Ethridge, Kelly Clarkson, Rik Emmett, et al) of The Playground Studio play and record the song. The best compliment I ever got about this song was when I played my last gig with Fidget and a woman came up to me and gave me huge props and said the song reminded her of L7. Yeah, all pounding downstrokes, baby!
THE IMPATIENS (rehearsal 2007)
THE IMPATIENS (rehearsal 2007) Track number: 3 Year: 2007 Album: The Rehearsal Tapes Genre: Punk
The Impatiens were a short-lived punk-pop band I was in from 2006-2008. We didn't play a single gig and the only recordings I have are rehearsal tapes like this one.
DRONICA - Dedication
DRONICA - Dedication Track number: 4 Year: 2005 Album: Dronica Genre: Other
Dronica is a 2-piece experimental, psychedelic, avant garde, ambient-noise, drone project formed by guitarist Emma-O (Pantychrist, Slander) and accordion player Jaroslaw Czerwinec (Cowboy Junkies, Gord Downie, Ryan Adams). Dronica's music is like a rusty chainsaw over a blackboard on a rocketship to a distant galaxy, where Jimi Hendrix, Syd Barrett and Johnny Ramone await to join in on the jam. Dronica's music is an all-improvised, aural cosmic assault that leaves audiences feeling out-of-this world. Screeching feedback blasts the listener out of their lulled consciousness, while wailing acccordion carries them over waves of sonic mayhem. Once the chaotic crescendo has peaked, the wave recedes and once again, the participant is gently brought back to Earth, all three eyes wide open, and brain barriers shredded.
