"No controlling these queers: this indie label channels riot grrrl attitude."

..."the members of Pariah Piranah--Tara, Andrea and Tony--are serious about bringing you a sound you can't put your finger on and can't stop listening to. " - COPYRIGHT 2008 Curve Magazine, Outspoken Enterprises, San Francisco, CA 94102 (415) 863-6538

"SF Weekly: Track of the Day"

"Pariah Piranha...hearkens back to the mid 90's northwestern sound in a very raw very real way."

"The group's killer single, 'Green Rooms', is fierce and urgent as the early grunge/riot grrrl days." - Jennifer Maerz

"Caught In The Carousel Review"

"Tara Gordon is quite a find....'I want to be strong,' she wails - on an album with this much muscle she's got to be kidding." -

"This Is Books Music Review"

"It rocks in all the right ways....Make them a part of your daily routine and scream their music all day long." -


"...the music sounds utterly fresh and infectious."
"...if you're over the '80s retread sound and your post-modern heart yearns for the next logical step, look no further than Pariah Piranha's irresistible new CD People People." -

"Origivation Magazine"

"Pariah Piranha do what Pariah Piranha always does: scream their asses off with the best pipes this side of a distortion pedal"
- Origivation Magazine

"Rahne Alexander"

"Like a team of Young Frankensteins, Pariah Pirahna has shocked grunge back to life. Their music is a ferocious, electrifying monster mash that is equal parts L7, The Gits, and early Nirvana. This ain't yer mama's grunge!" - Rahne Alexander

"Joy Frenzy"

"First band up was York, Pa's Pariah Piranha, instantly I was impressed. It is quick to described them as a female version of Nirvana but they had construction to their style that was pure. Their tight sound held you into the experience. Did I mention the drummer also contributed to vocals and had an amazing voice." -

"Music To Leave The House For"

"Pariah Piranha's pace varies, but they sport a guitar charge like a car battery hooked to coat-hangers..."

"In Tune: The Daily News"

"With a grungy, old-school alternative rock sound, the Tara Gordon-fronted outfits seems to be hitting their stride on 'People People,'...This is a band to keep an eye on." - JS
