Brian J. Waters

Brian J. WatersBrian J. Waters - Boogie Disease Radio - Tuesdays 5-7 PM PT

Brian J. Waters has been a fixture in the LA music scene since moving there from Miami, FL in 1988. His first gig was at Bleecker Bob’s Records LA, where he spent the better part of a decade specializing in buying and selling vintage vinyl. In the early 90s, Waters joined fellow Miami transplants in the magnetic punk rock band “Coma-tones,” and then went on to form his own soul-inspired, high energy rock-n-roll combos “The Countdowns” and “The Flash Express,” where the LA Weekly called him “a hopped-up locomotive, screaming into his Telecaster pickups, luring women in the audience and shaking his God-given white ass.” (Oh Good Lord!!!)  He’s also graced the stage and recording studio with artists ranging from Andre Williams and Rudy Ray Moore to DeeDee Ramone, Jane Wiedlin of the “GoGos” and most recently, the LA 10-piece, death doo-wop combo, “Jail Weddings.”

Michael Quercio

Michael QuercioMichael Quercio - The Michael Quercio Paisley Underground Consortium
Sundays 4:00 – 6:00 PM PT

Native of the South Bay (Carson, CA), Michael formed The Salvation Army (a rockin’ psychedelic/punk hybrid) during those early halcyon days of the burgeoning L.A. punk scene of the late 1970s/early 1980s.  After the real Salvation Army took offense, he changed the name of the band to The Three O’ Clock, taking on a more pop approach.  Along with The Bangs (later Bangles), The Rain Parade, The Dream Syndicate and other bands, they formed the nucleus of what later came to be known as the Paisley Underground, a musical genre born in Los Angeles, CA.  

After the break-up of The Three O’ Clock, he did stints in the bands Game Theory and Permanent Green Light before forming The Jupiter Affect.  Through it all he never stopped buying records, which accounts for a collection so vast and varied it would make you cry. Here, have a tissue.

Lina Litonjua

Lina Litonjua (formerly Sedillo) from Wilmington, CA , was the Chang  to Michael Quercio’s Eng in the early 80’s. Lina was an original member of I.U.D., the first all-girl techno-punk band that no one ever heard.  Later on, she was bassist for San Pedro post-punk band Peer Group, who were also not well-known but who did once open for a 9-year old at the Whisky a Go-Go.

She also worked for seminal Los Angeles Latino punk band The Plugz and their label, Fatima Records, which led to fascinating encounters with the original cast of The Pee Wee Herman Show, as well as cooking rice and beans for Ray Manzarek of The Doors.
