"Like a molten tidal wave, Kittenhead slams into the audience from the first chord of the first song, sending waves of pure riot into the crowd. Kivi Kittenhead, blasts and berates the audience, slowly stripping off layers of leather, vinyl, white cotton and plaid pleats throughout the set. DD and VJJ wildly careen around the stage, challenging and dueling each other, trading bass and guitar back and forth. O-Face, well – he just loves his job, holding down the fort on the drums, with the best seat in the house. The punk rock frenzy of Kittenhead spins and churns and whips up to a chaotic release, like a lid flying off a blender on high. And we are spent." - The Worst Little Podcast

Kittenhead is Los Angeles-based rock band united in their desire to create high-energy rock and roll. They comprise: Kivi, DD, Owen and VJJ. Read the lively interviewed here on Planet London! - Kate Bennett-Hall, Planet London

This band is a fast rockin', wild style band; if you want music that fills up a room and has a meaning, then you have to check this band out. - GFsix

"With a sound that could be the lovechild of Bikini Kill and The Gits, and smart lyrics that leave no room for doubt, Kittenhead straddles the gab between old-skool sensibility and nu-skool perspective. From the opening titles track to the last sexy groove of "Tattoo", Kittenhead proves that punk's not dead yet." - RTT (Reno Tahoe Tonight)

“I had a great time rocking with Kittenhead at the Roxy. Go see them. They will be around for a long as they want to be.” - LA Beat


Still working on that hot first release.
