(no idea who recorded this, the tape was an ‘orphan’ on the www without any info so I decided to give this the attention it deserves… The women of ‘Spitboy’ played this gig with ‘Fingerprint’ from France.)

‘Spitboy’ was an all-female political HC band from the San Francisco Bay Area. During their 1993 European tour the people in the band were  Adrienne Droogas (vocals; nowadays Mrs Stone), Karin Gembus (guitar), Paula Hibbs-Rines (bass; later replaced by Dominique ‘Nikki’ Davison) and Michelle ‘Todd’ Gonzales (drums). At that time they had a self-titled 7” out on Lawrence Livermore’s Lookout! Recs (’92) and an LP (True Self Revealed) on Kent McClard’s Ebullition recs (’93).

Vique ‘Simba’ Martin did an interview before this tour (read). 93-05-01 they also did a show at our autonomous centre Vort’n Vis. ‘Spitboy’s performance there was video-taped.


I thought it was super cool that Adrienne sings her part on In Your Face in German, while I sang my part just behind her in English. She had to practice that a bunch!

I have no flyer or anything from this show. But I remember that we had drawn a huge banner (2×4 meter) with the ‘Spitboy’ logo hanging on a wall next to the youthcentre, to promote the concert…
