Simplistics complete 30 year journey with Fervor!

Simplistics coverFervor Records is thrilled to reissue the self-titled album by California rockers Simplistics on June 3rd, nearly 30 years to the day it was originally released. A band that is equal parts pop, punk, and surf rock embodies a sound that can only be described as California New Wave. Simplistics, playing under with the kickin’ aliases of Kris Karr (Skaie Knox), Steve St. George (Steve Schroeder), Bob Hotel (John Wardell) and Crazy Frank (Frank Servas), cut their teeth throughout the early 80s playing house parties across Orange County and San Diego – with their record winding up in heavy rotation on the legendary station 91X. Whether rocking out on the Sunset Strip or playing acoustic in-store sets in Tower Records, Simplistics made their presence known. They are a true rock n’ roll story; Skaie made balloon animals around town to pay for recording time, while Steve kept the lights on by driving limos. The band continued playing shows along the West Coast until 2000. Simplistics’ raucous, self-titled debut can be experienced all over again on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify.

Now Available from Fervor Records: The Strand

The Strand cover_mediumFervor Records is honored to perpetuate the musical legacy of Bruce Connole, a gifted, multi-faceted musician and songwriter who has enjoyed a string of critically acclaimed bands throughout his amazing career. Throughout the 70s, Bruce was associated with Billy Clone and The Same, followed by The Jetzons in the early 80s. By 1986 Bruce had formed The Strand, a band that helped to define the “Tempe Sound.” It is this sonic movement that would go on to launch many Mill Avenue bands to major-label deals and national prominence. The Strand experienced a different fate, becoming local legends and remaining critical darlings. 30 years later Fervor Records is proud to re-issue The Strand’s self-titled EP which was released by the band on cassette. Experience The Strand across Amazon, iTunes, Spotify, and beyond.
