Since 1991, I have toured the USA and played on dozens of records with, by my count, at least 17 bands, including CHICKENHEAD, MIAMI, SHOTWELL, and ALLERGIC TO BULLSHIT. My current bands are BLACK RAINBOW and NEGATIVE JOY. In 2019, I joined BIKINI KILL on guitar for a series of reunion shows.
My current project in a series of bands with my best friend and lifelong collaborator, Ivy Jeanne. Black Rainbow began playing in San Francisco in 2009 and continued strong after I moved to NYC and drummer, Morgan, moved to North Carolina. The band has one self-titled LP (Starcleaners Records, 2014), two 7”s and a split 7” with Chattanooga’s HIDDEN SPOTS.
Ivy and Erica
When Morgan and Jacqui are not available for Black Rainbow, Ivy and I often play acoustic shows by ourselves. In December 2018 we recorded 18 songs with Jesse Parsons at Church Street Studios in San Francisco to be released as a benefit for the Emma Deboncoeur Scholarship Fund to benefit transgender students at UC Berkeley. Here is a preview, a rehearsal recording of Dead Moon’s “Day After Day".
After years as a punk rocker, it’s been hard to come out as a noise musician. I mean, I haven’t told my family yet, or anything, but a lot of my friends support me and this year I played my first solo show! Anyway, this is the stuff I make in my room. Also look for my new band, AQUASHADE, too, coming soon to a grubby low rent venue near you!
