With a name fairly similar to Hugh’s very own Quasi, this band is basically nothing like it. Forget I even mentioned that.
Found accidentally in New York, this female-fronted group (with electric violin) rocked the Bitter End like I did not ever expect it to be rocked. The songwriting is superb and excessively catchy. The violin, the lyrics, Rona’s delivery, it’s all too damn intriguing and fun. Plus they’re all cute (I will take the word of my female friends about the male members).
Unfortunately, they have ceased to exist. Luckily, the lead singer, Rona Figueroa (apparently the main force behind the group) still continues on, and the various other members also have gone off to do their own things. Their first and self-titled CD may be be quite difficult to find now (unless you contact her directly), but their latest is available through Amazon.
