“Sincola’s bio used to say we were the love child of the Pixies and the Go-Go’s (on speed or acid or Fruit Loops, I can’t remember which), and I suppose that’s pretty much right on the money,” emails drummer Terri Lord. When four of the five local band members were asked what the 1990s meant to them and where Sincola fit in on the occasion of this reunion, Nirvana nostalgia flew out the car window. Chepo Pena, bass: “Everything was personal. You bought records. Music had value. Bands were putting their own records out and making their own zines. The Internet opened doors for what bands could do, but it killed the personal touch I experienced in the 1990s.” Kris Patterson, guitar: “During a road trip with nonstop abuse to my Breeders and Pixies cassettes, I pulled over at a rest stop and called Greg (ahem, Wendel Stivers). I told him I would be home that afternoon – he needed to find a guitar and come over ASAP! And so, Sincola was born in the Poi Dog Pondering barn.” Rebecca Cannon, vox: “The Nineties to me was Sincola. I came to Austin to attend [UT], and when I discovered college radio in 1991, my life changed. I got to interview bands like Babes in Toyland, and that’s when everything changed for me. I decided that what they did was way cooler than being a DJ. I made the first band I tried out for and that was Sincola!” – Raoul Hernandez
