Originally from the San Fernando Valley and eventually relocating to Echo Park, CA, Corners began playing high-energy shows around Los Angeles in 2011. Singer and guitar player Tracy Bryant founded the band and began playing music with drummer Rick Mabery and Billy Changer on bass. Bryant and Changer met at The Smell, an important DIY community venue where music enthusiasts can really bond over similar interests…admitting that if it weren’t for The Smell, they probably wouldn’t be a band. The current lineup solidified when Jeff “Jeffertiti” Ramuno (Of Jeffertitis Nile/touring bassist of Father John Misty) began playing guitar and synth with the band. All four current members also connected through their shared love of Joy Division. Influenced by late 1970s punk and 1980s post-punk music and a deep fascination with the type of music made in those eras, Corners began to shift their own sound in that same direction.
I’m Frankie Teardrop, and I like to make rock and roll jams. Sometimes I talk about drug abuse, the impossibility of relating to humans in a fucked up world, being fucked up myself, and whether or not love is real and how that feels. I talk about other shit too, like taking a good hard look in the fucking mirror. Do that before you come to one of my shows and then let all that shit go when you get there. LET’S RIP!
