Biography

The two-piece of Jen (guitar) and Sarah (drums/vocals) originally went under the moniker of Mopar upon their 1995 formation. But after discovering that they had both played the role of Rizzo in their high school productions of Grease, they couldn't help but change their name to a character that they could both identify with. On top of their minimal but fast-paced punk of lighthearted indie pop, Harriet Records packaged Rizzo's first release as a split with Tullycraft in 1997. The following year, the Los Angeles duo released their second 7", Shymaster, on Cher Doll Records. Phoning It In appeared in spring 2001. ~ Mike DaRonco~ Rovi
