From the moment they took flight with their first release, TALES OF DRUNKENNESS
AND CRUELTY, The Condors knew they were on to something special -- pop songs with
attitude, power, and intellect.
The Condors’ second CD, WAIT FOR IT, garnered a great deal of airplay and glowing reviews
in South America, Europe, and the United States. The album track, “Set Me on Fire,” was used
in the opening scene of the indie film, TARGET PRACTICE, with the music video a featured
extra on the DVD. WAIT FOR IT made numerous “Best Of” lists, and was voted “Disc of the
Month” by Spain’s prestigious POWER POP ACTION! website.
The band’s one constant is songwriter and front man, Pat “Pooch” DiPuccio, but past and present band members have added their stamp on each incarnation of The Condors. Formed out of the remnants of several groups, this Los Angeles band has grown into a tight, proficient outfit; logging many hours recording in the studio and playing live shows.
The Condors’ spirited new 3 ITEM COMBO CD, on Vital Gesture Records, delves into more
personal and emotional themes while still retaining the group’s trademark grit. Once again, they enlisted producer/engineer Steve Refling to guide the band into previously uncharted territories of creativity.
The band’s current lineup consists of singer/guitarist Patrick DiPuccio, bassist Mario “Miggs”
DiLeva, and drummer Mark Francis White. Together they create a full and energetic sound that
ignites their live shows. Listen to the new CD, and see them live, to find out why the critics have sung the praises of The Condors.
Calling their sound a blend of pop and punk (think Elvis Costello and Plimsouls), The Condors
rely on still more tales of dysfunctionality, told in an appealing manner that’s partly sweet,

It's punk pop for grownups; instead of some adenoidal twentysomething whining about this,
that or the other thing, you get a band that knows the style, is comfortable in its own skin, and
is ready to rock.
