Drive Like Jehu was an American post-punk/post-hardcore band led by Rick Froberg and John Reis, formed in 1990 in San Diego, California and disbanded in 1995. Their music combines elements of rock and punk with complex time signature changes, complicated interweaving guitar lines, unusual and extended song structures, and atonal, dissonant guitar riffs, sometimes described as noise rock, math rock or sludge rock. They released two full-length albums before disbanding in 1995, partly due to Reis' increased involvement with his other band, Rocket from the Crypt. The success of Rocket from the Crypt and of Reis and Froberg's later band Hot Snakes has drawn increased attention to their work in Drive Like Jehu and led to a re-release of their influential album Yank Crime. Posthumously, Drive Like Jehu's music has been cited as a catalyst for the re-emergence of emo and for the prolific San Diego music scene of the 1990s.

Hi-fi attitude compresse in lo-fi seconds twined with noisy synthetic pop winks…“Lazer punk” they call it. What Rodo (bass and keyboards), Valentín Torres (keyboards) and Jung Sing (drums and vocals) have been doing since the beginning of 2005, in the warm border city of Mexicali, Mexico, is something far beyond “simple” punk. This young musician’s power combo, with a sinister humor and electronic hints, roughly deconstruct rock music that, until today, has grown a great legion of fans all over the country. These three mannequins breakthrough the conventional apparel, making you go wild and dance with music you’re not even supposed to dance to. Maniqui Lazer blends the heritage of Iggy Pop’s attitude on stage and the impudence of The Liars live. Maniqui Lazer may fill the gap between the sound of The Blood Brothers, Les Georges Leningrad and XBXRX. Their debut album was produced by Mexicali’s techno favorite Ruben Tamayo a.k.a Fax (Traum, Static Discos, Rocket Racer). That might explain why in such a short time, they’ve shared stage with bands like: Xiu Xiu, Viking Moses!, Erase Errata, The Black Lips, The Spits, XBXRX (together they toured border cities in early ‘06), Montag, The Locust (toured mexico in june ’07), Sleeping People, Crystal Castles, James Holden, The Rapture, Numbers, My Disco as well as known mexican artists like Fax, Zoe, Plastilina Mosh, Silverio, Childs, Austin TV, Insite, E.lebleu, She’s a Tease, Quiero Club, Panoptica, Niño Astronauta, Titán, Fancy Free among others.

Metalcore outfit Scars of Tomorrow emerged from California's Orange County in October of 2000 with their own West Coast take on East Coast hardcore, often showcasing a melodic sense among otherwise blistering music. They first debuted in 2002 on Thorp Records with All Things Change, following up the next March with Design Your Fate. Guitarist Ruben Martinez and drummer Mike Madariaga left after the latter album, and vocalist Mike Milford, guitarist Carlos Garcia, and bassist Robert Bradley were joined by Chris Warner on drums and Dave Rodriguez on guitar; the crew signed with Victory in May 2003. The band's label debut appeared the following February, entitled Rope Tied to the Trigger. Crossing North America several times over with bands like Himsa, Atreyu, and Norma Jean, Scars of Tomorrow issued The Horror of Realization in October 2005 before heading out to support it with Bury Your Dead. About two weeks prior to leaving on tour, however, everyone but Milford decided they were done with the band. Undeterred, he quickly recruited new members -- guitarists Joey Atkins and Kevin Fifield, bassist Dan Bieranowski, and drummer Ryan Severino -- and shows went on as scheduled. Thorp Records released The Beginning Of, a compilation of early and out of print recordings, the subsequent March. With new drummer Justin Salinas (ex-Inked in Blood) and bassist Mike Boccuzzi next on board, Scars of Tomorrow's next studio full-length, The Failure in Drowning, appeared on Halloween 2006. That record would prove to be Scars of Tomorrow's last. Following a subsequent spring tour, the guys decided to finally put the band to rest and start over fresh. Scars of Tomorrow played their last show in May 2007. [allmusic.com]
