Bio

Peter Krimmel (piano/ vocals/ guitar), Robby Garza (guitar/bass), Bryan Garza (vocals/guitar), and James Krimmel (drums/bass) comprised the initial incarnation of the flirty indie rock band Scissors for Lefty. Part Brit-pop and part indie rock, and with a campy persona and dreamy lyrics to match, Scissors for Lefty were a great addition to the post-punk revival of the new millennium. They played shows with the likes of Grandaddy, the Coral, Mary Timony, Pedro the Lion, and Diamond Nights. They self-released their first album, Bruno, in 2005. A performance at the annual South by Southwest conference in Austin, TX, followed in spring 2006. A few months later they added Stevie Garza (Bryan's brother) on bass and set to work on their Rough Trade debut, Underhanded Romance, which came out in June of the following year.
