Sex Stains, formed in early 2014, is a Los Angeles quintet comprised of stalwart members of the punk and indie underground. Lead vocalist Allison Wolfe was part of first generation riot grrrl bands Bratmobile and Cold Cold Hearts, both on the underground label Kill Rock Stars. Lead vocalist Mecca Vazie Andrews is a well- known choreographer and the artistic director of "The MOVEMENT movement" and has worked with artists such as Daft Punk, Toro y Moi, Marina Abramovie, and Liz Glynn. On drums is David Orlando, who drummed in Warpaint and is a resident DJ for L.A. clubs Dub Club and Punky Reggae Party. Guitarist Sharif Dumani played with Atlanta soul man Cody Chesnutt and his Headphone Masterpiece band. Puerto Rico transplant Pachy Garcia (Prettiest Eyes) rounds out the sound on bass guitar. Pulling from late 70's and early 8 o's post-punk, Sex Stains' music alters between thought-provoking punk, infectious dance rhythms, angular guitar sounds and cacophony. Sex Stains play regularly throughout California, having graced Burger-a-Go-Go, Echo Park Rising and Deserted at the Palms festivals, as well as sharing bills with the lovely likes of the Pop Group, ESG, the Julie Ruin, Shannon & the Clams, the Coathangers, Chain & the Gang, and Alice Bag. Sex Stains supported Cherry Glazerr on a West Coast tour in June of 2016. The band recorded its debut album with Mark Rains at Station House Studio for a September 2016 release on Don Giovanni Records.
