ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Abe Vigoda are bright and shining teenage calypso punk. Shedding their no wave dissonance for tropical melody, has put them in opportune position to blast transcendent pop repetition. These kids are fucked, in the way that they can make a good record and play really good shows above all odds, like living in Chino, CA, a suburb of Los Angeles, where nothing grows. Any given month finds them playing several all-ages shows in all corners of So Cal and for the past year they've been a staple of the all-ages, volunteer run venue, The Smell (Los Angeles, CA). Playing with friends and local favorites Mika Miko, The Mae Shi, Barr, No Age, and opening for bands like, Get Hustle, XBXRX, Shoplifting, Curtains, Chromatics and Old Time Relijun they have been labeled as one of "L.A's best under 21 bands "( LA RECORD).

In the past year they have released a debut 12" LP on both Post Present Medium and Not Not Fun Records as well as a 7" EP on Silencio Records and a split 7" with kindred spirits, Child Pornography on Oms-B. In the same span of time they have embarked on three West Coast tours, each one more and more positive, inspiring them to play to as many people as possible and to make better records.

Their new record "Kid City" (OlFactory Records) is all dirty neon and angular pop. The biggest Cruise party to the Bahamas with post punk violence. Tracks like " All Night and Day" will make you wonder why they are not jamming in the middle of some ADD jungle. Sounding like a younger more abrasive d.i.y. reincarnation of the Talking Heads, with the fiery repetition of Konono No. 1, Kid City is hectic. Like all the scuzz and fake tropicalisms of Los Angeles shoved together - irrigated desert!
