Not to be confused with the actor of the same name (most notably from The
Godfather and Late Night with Conan O'Brien), Los Angeles' Abe Vigoda
represent an exciting crop of young and arty punk bands emerging from local
all-ages venue the Smell that also includes bands like Mika Miko, Silver
Daggers, the Mae Shi, and No Age. The band -- consisting of Juan Velazquez
(guitar/vocals), Michael Vidal (guitar/vocals), David Reichardt (bass), and
Reggie Guerrero (drums) -- formed in Chino in 2003 after Velazquez and Vidal
caught a Mika Miko set at the aforementioned Smell while they were still in
high school, and channeled the energy that they took from that performance
into starting a band of their own. Amid a long line of solo and split
limited-edition 7" releases of distorted noise punk, they released their
first full-length album, Sky Route/Star Roof, on Not Not Fun Records in
2005, and followed that with Kid City on olFactory in 2007. As Abe Vigoda
amassed a fervent local following by playing regularly at the Smell and
opening for touring acts such as XBXRX, Chromatics, and Old Time Relijun,
they also began experimenting with their sound, steadily incorporating
tropical and Caribbean rhythms into their music. By early 2008, the band had
finished recording its follow-up full-length, Skeleton, and released it in
July of that year on Dean Spunt's (No Age) label, Post Present Medium (PPM).
They followed it up in February of 2009 with an five-track EP titled
Reviver.
