All in RAZ - Artisti

Not a person but a four-piece punk band from Richmond, VA, Ann Beretta consisted of guitarists/vocalists Rob Huddleston and Leer Baker, bassist Chris Rupp, and drummer Russ Jones. Featuring members of the defunct local act Inquisition, the group formed in 1996 and was heavily influenced by the likes of the Clash, Rancid, and Stiff Little Fingers.
One of the few first-wave punk bands who not only survived to the end of the century but did so with their original sound and focus intact, Fastbacks were formed in Seattle, WA, by three high school friends, Kurt Bloch, Kim Warnick, and Lulu Gargiulo. Bloch and Warnick began playing guitar in high school while Gargiulo took lessons in classical guitar at age seven but never played rock & roll until joining the band (though photos she took at local rock shows caught Bloch's eye, sparking a friendship)
To fully appreciate and understand the history of Some Girls, one needs to know something about the group that paved the way for them: the Blake Babies. A female alternative pop/rock trio with ties to Boston and Indianapolis, Some Girls was officiallyformed in 2001; however, two members of Some Girls (Boston singer/songwriter Juliana Hatfield and Indiana drummer Freda Love) had been working together since 1987, when they formed the Boston-based Blake Babies with guitarist John Strohm.
