Pariah Piranha
People People
(Queer Control)
Released: 1 September


When Tara Gordon sings “When we cross the city lines / We’ll pretend to be dead” on Pariah Piranha’s new single “Green Rooms”, you don’t need the lyrical reference to feel the L7 that permeates the track. Recalling the best moments of 1990s acts like Lunachicks, Bratmobile, and Babes in Toyland, the San Francisco trio makes you want to throw on a flannel and shake your hair like J. Mascis.


So if you’re over the ‘80s retread sound and your post-modern heart yearns for the next logical step, look no further than Pariah Piranha’s irresistible new CD, People People. In the hands of Gordon and bandmates Andrea Shearer and Tony Garber, the music sounds utterly fresh and infectious. And it was produced by Tony Maimone of Pere Ubu and They Might Be Giants fame, in case you need another dash of ‘90s authenticity.
