Verbal Abuse
Since 2010, SA90 has been rocking Santa Cruz and the San Francisco and Monterey Bay area
with heavy, female-fronted punk rock.

A little bit about us – singer Celina Bottini belts out lyrics from her personal life, past and
present. Bassist Mark Hanford was a member of Idaho's Haggis in the 90s. Guitarist Joe
Gabent was in 90s Santa Cruz band The Exploding Crustaceans, as well as in newer acts
The History Lesson and Noise Clinic. Drummer Philip Wheatley played drums in an early
incarnation of renowned 80s Kansas punkers Near Death Experience.

In 2015, they finally entered the studio to lay down 8 tracks of fury. Recorded and mixed by
Joe Clements at Compound Recordings in Santa Cruz county and mastered at Mammoth
Sound Mastering by the illustrious Dan Randall, all 8 songs are potent mixes of heavy guitars,
pounding drums, and in-your-face vocals.

Mark resurrected his old label, Screwball Productions, to release “Johnny On The Phone” in
January of 2016. Copies are pressed on random colored vinyl. Some are solid, some transparent, some
a mix of colors. All records come with an insert and a download card.
