Will Change Your Life

by The Studiofix

Not old enough to buy a drink, but old enough to combine the urgent angst of Eddie Cochran with the funk of James Brown and melodies of The Beatles. Garage without being ’60s. ’60s without being retro. Feminine without being girly. Power trio rock 'n' ro

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
we're so cool that we like music from bands that are so underground that they haven't even become bands yet, the members haven't even been born yet, that's how far ahead we are... man.

but really. probably everything we've ever heard throughout our entire lives.

we sound like everyone else, everybody else, everything that's ever been done before. and frankly, we're perfectly fine with that. we arent trying to completley or partially revolutionize music we just enjoy it. we're poor and our parents don't give us top of the line equipment every other day. we're full time students and full time workers. we spend more money on our clothes than our equipment because frankly, its more promising. so if you're an elitist you should go...to hell that is.

Jeff Clark - Stomp and Stammer


Yer basic rock 'n' roll turns minty fresh in the hands of these three sassy SoCal chickies, doing a spunky and sorta raw take on garage with all the essentials and few of the clichés. Singer Paco channels early Lennon in a sexy rasp that can't help but get ya all hot 'n' bothered, while her wham-bam guitars match wits with Jenna's sneaky basslines and Jacqueline's snappy drumming in a manner that suggests a new strain of funk. It's not all teenage basement rave-ups, though - "The Latter Years" and "C'est La Vie" point wistful, while "Antidiluvian Love" (eh?) sounds like an Athens dance party circa '81. The Studiofix may not change your life, but seriously, this is one of the most rockin' debuts I've heard all year, and somebody dearly needs to get 'em out of California for an East Coast tour...or at least a gig at my next house party.

I don't know about life-changing, but this one is certainly a lot of fun. Studiofix is three young California women who claim to have just started playing without any lessons or training, and not much practice. While they may not be virtuosos, they are more than competent enough for the sort of pop music they are offering. Lyrics run from cryptic to just plain silly, but are never anything but perfect. I can definitely imagine that there is plenty of dancing going on at a Studiofix gig. –Brian Mosher (Avebury, www.aveburyrecords.com)

Jennifer Grover - Tone and Groove


It's refreshing to hear a teen girl singer who isn't doing the breathless Britney or tortuous note diva act. Nicole de Leon, a.k.a. Paco, is a bold voiced punker, one with a good voice, not just a screamer or screecher. Studiofix are a teen girl band from Orange County, novice musicians who admirably push the edges of their playing ability, and use the chops they have well. The disc opens with "Pity the Fool", a lively, defiant song in which the character is determined not to mope, but just end a bad relationship. "Stop feeling sorry for yourself," she tells the other party.

This sets the tone for a perky blend of Paco's 70's rock and roll style guitar and Jacqueline Pablo's frenetic Mod drumming, and Jenna Eyrich is a novice bassist who doesn't play simplistically, is willing and able to take a lead line, and isn't afraid to get funky. This is the sound of girls with gumption going places. From the ambitious funk of "Sleeping", to the 60's style rave-up "Rock 'n' Roll Sensation", to the almost Pylon-esque "1,2,3,4, Stop!" to the old school singer/songwriter pop of "C'est La Vie", they show a knowledge of a wide variety of styles and an understanding, or at least an intuition, of what makes many of them tick. Lyrical content ranges from the sexy submission of "Robot" to the observations of a "Bag Lady" to "The Bell Jar", which likens getting over a suave but no good lover to overcoming a mental illness. "Time Machine" is my favorite track. It's complex, fun, and shows they know how to write a hook.

The sound is just a bit thin and bright at times, but that's a production issue. Will they change your life? Probably not, but these girls have a lot of potential, and heck, they're just fun to listen to now. Hear them for yourself on their MySpace page.

Tasty Fanzine


Miss one, hit one! This is more like it from Avebury. The Studiofix are an enviably talented bunch that manage to combine a breadth of influences in an edgy modern rock and roll that is way beyond their tender years. 'Magical Michael' sounds like some Motown classis put through the rock blender and whisked up to a perfect guitar pop fluffiness. Meanwhile, 'The Latter Years' is a quieter number that starts off like a St Thomas track but then winds up with a Chilis inspired bass track.
The Studiofix have such a fresh approach to putting together some weirdly played guitar and bass and drums it is difficult to compare them with anyone. Incomparable while still in your teens - that's some feat. Damn pretty too.

Cool Noise


I seem to heard the MC5s Rob Tynans voice in more than one recent CD. The reason why I have to mention it is that Rob Tynan had one of the most soulful Rock and Roll voices ever. But even with all that Soul, there was an edge when his voice cracked in such a beautiful way. So why do I have to say this? Simple, The first three tracks on this album by The Studiofix (pity The Fool, Magic Michael, and Sleeping) are sung by Nicole de Leon (Paco) with a voice that shows all the qualities of the MC5s front man.

But the songs are not just out-and-out rockers, the Studiofix turn their instruments to a mid-tempo strum on The Latter Years. Ive have to stop here. I hadnt really noticed this track too much on the first two listens to the album. I seem to remember wanting them to keep on the guitar rock stuff. But this track is absolutely beautiful. I dont want to analyse too much in case I ruin it, but the melodic bass part, the plaintive sad vocals are just perfect. Thats the second song this year to reduce me to tears at the sheer beauty and emotion of it all.

Back to the rocking, Bag Lady and Panicking could have been written at any time from the late 60s onwards. That reminds me, I heard Janis Joplin on the radio last Saturday and thats worth mentioning because Im rating Pacos voice amongst the best female rock voices Ive heard (Janis/Grace Slick/Elkie Brooks). And theres more but I cant just list tracks can I? Ill just say that this is a band, not just a singer, and there is a strength in this. The songs work so well because of the interplay of all three musicians and the lack of fancy production just increases my admiration for this record.

I seem to have said that Studiofixs singer has a voice equal to the best male AND female voices in history. Thats like the sort of thing you feel when you fall in love. But that is what these reviews are about - how the music makes me feel. All of the attempts to describe the music and provide erudite comparisons are just filler. Im sure youll know what I mean when I say I have to roll over and sleep now - no Studiofixno moreI cantwell, give me half an hour

From the core, hard-hitting rock and roll songs
Not bad for a first release from a band who just stared playing together recently. Yes, they’re all girls, but don’t get caught up labeling them a “girl” band, they are a “rock” band. Throughout the album, I detected flecks of Hendrix, No Doubt and even Joe Jackson, but couldn’t quite put a single description on them.While each of them does their thing well, especially notable are the Mitch Mitchell-esque fills of drummer, Jacqueline Pablo. At times heavy and thought provoking and at others delightfully silly, head-banging deicious non-sense. Be on the look-out for this band.
