April March is the project of California singer-songwriter
Elinore Blake, formerly of the surfing riot-grrrls
Pussywillows, who recorded Spring Fever (1988),
of the Shitbirds, that released Famous Recording Artists (Sympathy, 1995),
and of the Haves, that released Superbanyair (Columbia, 1997).
In the meantime, she had started the solo career as April March with the single
Voo Doo Doll (Kokopop, 1992) and the album
Gainsbourgsion (Eurovision, 1994), and a style that borrowed heavily
from the French Sixties' pop idols.
The single Chick Habit (Sympathy, 1995) inaugurated her mature stage,
that, after Sings Along With the Makers (Sympathy, 1997), reached an
apex with the campy and eclectic Sixties' revival of
And Los Cincos (Sympathy, 1998); while
Chrominance Decoder (Ideal, 1999) found a vehicle to broaden the
audience for her impersonation of Francoise Hardy in the age of
Pizzicato Five and
(Sugar, Garcon Glacon, Nothing New).
Triggers (Play It Again Sam, 2003) is a more personal work, less
nostalgic towards the Sixties and more contemporary in sound and spirit.
