I am currently trying to start another punk band here in southern California and am aiming to write music about social and political struggles within our culture as well as others. My chief influences come from old musicians and philosophers like Leadbelly, Woody Guthrie, Johnny Cash, Joe Strummer, Lysander Spooner, John Lennon, and Johnny Ramone, up to more modern public/political figures like Greg Graffin, Justin Sane, Chris Head, Tim McIlrath, Ron Paul, and Jack Grisham. The music concentrates mainly on equality such as anti-racism, anti-fascism. anti-big government, anti-sexism, etc. as well as supporting things like independence, self-liberty, pro-choice for sexuality and education. It also unveils the corrupt wrongs committed by other governments as well as our own here in the US of A. Over here, I'm known as Jo Mosquito (named after an Iggy Pop song of a similar name) and with this new alias I hope to make the world a better place through meaningful music before it becomes illegal to even own a guitar in America.
