I saw The Heaters at the Viper Room this last Wednesday. WOW! It’s been twenty seven years since their first LP. The Heaters were the hottest band in L. A. (hence, the United States) in 1979-1980. They were as good as ever, if not better. The three women’s three-part harmonies soared, Phil’s drumming kicked serious percussive butt and Jamie’s guitar work was crisp yet emotional. There was a terrific article on the band in the July 18 Los Angeles Times Calendar section.

Also on that site is my bio of the group. It delineates my involvement with the band as well. I just designed and illustrated the packaging (and wrote the liner notes) to their first CD release. It should be out this week. You can order it in advance, I believe, from The Heaters’ website listed above or, as soon as it comes out, from my website.
Put On The Heat!
