In December 2002, ex-L7 bassist Jennifer Finch emerged from the Los Angeles underground with a new team.
Known as Shocker (after the prurient hand gesture), the band also included Lura Jones, Arye Shine, and Claudi Rossi. The band wasted no time, issuing the seven-song EP Up Your Ass Tray (Little Pusher/Oglio) in July 2003. With song titles like "Bad Brain, Good Head" and a snotty, NC-17 approach to gritty punk revivalism, Shocker got set to conquer with summertime Warped Tour dates and plans to participate in Warped impresario Kevin Lyman's Girls Garage, a club tour featuring all-female rock acts. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi
