ADDITIONAL BACKGROUND INFORMATION >>>>

"Tough, sexy, and whipsmart...Stinger's singer is bionic & the songs alluring," says A.P. Mag. Stinger's cool melodies, and smooth groovy beats come to life with a fringe of euro trash & noir soundtrack around the edges...a soundtrack to the lives of the new seductive insatiable generation. The San Francisco bay area's modern rock group founded by vocalist Alicia Peron and bassist Victor James, delivers floor bombs and live choreography that're exciting, daring, and smooth, with a provocative sound & stunning show that is undeniable."

In their first month as a band, Stinger released their debut on 7" vinyl on their own Muscle Car Records. Two months later, their first CD "Private Collection" followed, also on Muscle Car/C2 Records. The following year, their 2nd CD release, the 13-song "Devil On My Mind," produced by John Ryan (Santana) was supported so strongly by bay area press, radio, and retail, they were offered a deal by Chicago Kid Records to release it in April 2001. Film music supervisors reacted the same way; in January 2002 the Miramax motion picture "Diamonds" starring Kirk Douglas , Dan Aykroyd, Lauren Bacall, and Jenny MacArthy, featured "Fringe Authority" alongside Elvis' "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" The group also had a cameo in the film. SF Weekly's Silke Tudor said "led by the enchanting force that is Alicia Peron, Simon Stinger landed a cameo and song in the Miramax comedy "Diamonds," but that's a small accomplishment next to the realization of "Devil On My Mind" - the most dazzling, fun, and charmingly insolent album Ive heard this year." In August 2002, 15,000 copies of a CD sampler "Here's Your Heart Back" were released by sponsor Saicomm Industries to Simon Stinger fans all over the world. This CD is now out of circulation, but can still be found for sale on ebay.

Stinger's 3rd full length CD "Some Kinda Voodoo" was released by Ann-Margrock Music in November 2003 featuring the production of Sylvia Massy Shivy (Tool, Powerman 5000, System of a Down, Johnny Cash, Bjork, Prince) at Radio Star Studios. Six tracks from Some Kinda Voodoo were added to heavy rotation at AOL Broadband Radio & Netscape Radio. Two of the tracks "French Connection" and "Madame X" were added by music director Cameo Carlson to the AOL alternative station "Best of 2004-2005."

In May 2005 French Connection was Itunes featured single of the week. During their feature, the band charted at #96 of TOP 100 albums overall & #15 of the TOP 100 alternative albums in the alternative genre. In the same year, Elektra senior VP of A&R & former Cars vocalist, Ric Ocasek, discovered Stinger and chose them to be his next musical project for the label. With Elektra Records folding into Atlantic in 2004, the deal was history.

In 2005 Stinger wrote and recorded some of their newest tracks due to be released on the upcoming CD "Boom-Boom Room" out on Sylvia Massy Shivy's cutting-edge National Recorder label in the fall of 2006. The release never happened when Alicia Perrone and Victor James chose to create Electronic/Alternative Dance duo Fans of Jimmy Century.

Teenage Kicks

Record of the Year 2000?!
It may be too soon to call this the record of the year, but to give you an idea of how much I love it, let me tell you this... I played this CD everyday for months and even got a second copy to play at work! Nobody out there now sounds like Simon Stinger or their amazing singer, Alicia Perrone. There isn't a dull moment on this record and "Summertime" and "Hollywood Ending" are amongst the best songs I've heard in a long time. A recent line-up change has made them sound even better. Check them out now!

Jonas Sutherland

A charming collection of songs that will knock you out.
This CD is chalk full of hook-ridden songs. I couldn't find one song that I can't imagine being on the radio. It's new wave. It's rock'n'roll. It's vibrant. It's exciting. Perfect for parties, cruising. It's romantic with a female vocalist that sets a new very high standard for years to come.

Robin Cline

Magnetic and addictive
Thanks to the Showtime series The L Word, I recently got turned on to Fans of Jimmy Century - their fantastic song Hot Sahara from Twist of the Banshees was featured on one of the episodes this year - and this led me to Simon Stinger. I've had the Devil On My Mind cd for a week now and can't stop listening to it. Every track delivers, there's no filler here, folks, it's the real deal. Magnetic and addictive, this stuff, with energy to spare, and Alicia's vocals are beyond infectious - she is one of the best singers I've ever heard, plain and simple, with a voice that evokes so many different emotions all at one time, just brilliant. The songs are beautifully written and superbly realized, each and every one. Alicia, you rock my world.

San Francisco Weekly Review By Silke Tudor


Led by the enchanting force that is Alicia Perrone -- think Blondie's coquettish sleaze, Siouxsie Sioux's histrionic wail, and Joan Jett's surly punch -- Simon Stinger recently landed a cameo and a song in the Dan Aykroyd and Kirk Douglas comedy Diamonds, but that's a small accomplishment next to the realization of Devil on My Mind. The San Francisco quartet's second independent release is a 21st-century girl's revelation of all that was enjoyable in the '80s: the belief in ego, love, and music; the freedom of blazing down the freeway with dried roses hanging from your rearview mirror; the simple joy of pounding your feet in the dark corners of a nightclub filled with black-clad fans who believe in the star potential of their local musicians...

Simon Stinger is a BLAST
Just got a copy of Devil On My Mind by the San Francisco
band Simon Stinger. This is a GREAT cd. The tunes
rock hard but never in a predictable way. This band
has the personality and originality that's missing in
the music world today. The songs are well written,
arranged well and sound like hits. Check it out.
You won't be dissapointed!

Sara Farrell

My new favorite band!
My brother and I are devoted fans to the end now. Both of our favorite songs is Summertime. It's perfect for the weather we're having right now. We'd love to see them play some time.

Sherry Bailey

It's Unanimous!
Well, I've read through all the other reviews
& I must say I agree wholeheartedly. This record is my pick for
CD of the year. It's worth every penny and more. The songwriting is
radio all the way, but radio like it used to be. Adventurous, exciting. I wish
these guys were signed so I could hear them on the airwaves every day. It's got a sexy
confident vibe that totally cheers you up. And there isn't much
sexiness on the radios these days. Just cutesy crap and male macho hardcore.

Fasterpussycat

brilliant stuff...cant get enough
First time i heard the album i walked away and just couldnt get those songs out my head..so i went back for more and now i know every word....an excellent album..well worth every penny. Just a shame we dont get more music in the uk like this one...

Amy James
