Abe Vigoda Biography

There are two Abe Vigoda's

1) Actor: Full name Abraham Charles Vigodah (born February 24, 1921).

2) Abe Vigoda the band.

Hailing from Los Angeles, Abe Vigoda is the new la punk secret weapon. This is what happens when musical influences are used in the right way to create something new. Part punk, part pop, part new wave, part tropical, Abe Vigoda bring forth an entirely new sound that is both temptingly beautiful and melodically tropical. Their first proper full length arrives under the name Skeleton and is a twisted joy ride through the four boys' private party. Soothing parts are reminiscent of Captain Beefheart and My Bloody Valentine, while a haunting Reggaeton pulse makes you want to move. It is purely Abe Vigoda though, heading down paths that are familiar and also fresh.

Abe Vigoda has been going at it for years now. Since 2004, their sound has transpired into many different styles and shapes, leaving them with a unique take on punk and its various states of attitude. Having previously released several singles, two full lengths, cassettes, and more, Skeleton captures the boys honing in on an amazing direction. There is a bit of dream-like ambience that seams through entire songs, a beat that drives the listener into their world, and vocals that are underneath the music as much as they are on top of it. Coming from the same team as The Smell champions No Age and Mika Miko, Abe Vigoda keeps a DIY attitude. They play all over the place whenever they can, bringing a vibe of instantaneousness that is all their own. Skeleton is what LA sounds like now.
