Album Notes
Super Alive PowerRisk all-female trio. Hard-hitting and politically charged.

Through serendipity and Tiik’s vision, three long-term rockers found each
other and created G.U.T.S. (Give Us The Strength) Tiik, Tina, and August
have been playing as G.U.T.S. since 2009 with Tiik on guitar/vocals, Tina on
drums, and August on bass. Think, intelligent, love-anger-humor with feminist ideals.

Tiik has been in the national rock/punk scene for many years, including the
release of her album, National Tears, and being band mates with the inspirational
Toshi Reagon. She was driven to create G.U.T.S. as a new band-experience and
connected with Tina through the helpful social networking tools of the internet!
Together, Tiik and Tina rocked in DC until they found their thunderous bass player,
August, through the chromatic magic of Artomatic and their friend, Phil.

August has been playing rock/alternative for many years and was previously in
the DC band “Shame Girl.” Tina is the incredible self-taught drummer who’s love
for drumming extends into her business as a drum builder; she has built for
Les Warner(ex The Cult), Rob San Pietro(ex Meatmen, now Hot Buttered Elvis),
Leesa Squyres(Lez Zepplin) and more.
Gregg Shapiro of Out Smart Magazine says:
“... punk trio G.U.T.S. will knock the wind out of you (in a good way!) on their 7-song EP It Takes Guts!.
An undeniable Patti Smith influence can be felt throughout the disc, most notably in lead singer Tiik Pollet’s amazing vocal performance style...“

GUTS music builds on their years of varied experiences and ultimately grows out of that mystical place between classic rock/punk and new rock. G.U.T.S. has played venues from Virginia to Connecticut in clubs, festivals & backyard BBQ's.
