The Fevers are an American power-pop band from California. They have two LPs released on German label Alien Snatch records. Drawing influence from 70’s power pop groups such as the Modernettes, Sire records era Flamin’ Groovies, as well as 60’s bubblegum acts like the Ohio Express and Joey Levin and garage proto-punks the Equals, Beau Brummels and the Small Faces (all of whom the band covered), the Fevers were always either decades too late or a decade ahead of their time (or maybe both). Originally formed in San Jose, California by singer/ bassist Gavin May and guitarist Brian Hermosillo in the mid-90’s during the original “Budget Rock” boom, the band released a 7” e.p. on Lipstick records with drummer Kathy Walker (los Retardos/ Pinkz) and played a few shows featuring Darin Raffaelli (Supercharger/ Donnas svengali/ Donny Denim) before quietly breaking up. At some point in the late 90’s May and Hermosillo found themselves in Minneapolis recording with producer Travis Ramin on drums.
The band would release “Gaan Daar Waar De Meisjes Zijn” (“Go Where the Girls Are”) and “Love Always Wins” for Germany’s Alien Snatch label as well as the “Don’t Tell Me It’s Wrong” b/w “He’s In Town” 45 for Get Hip records and the “Get On Again” b/w “Can’t Be True” 45 for Plastic Idol records. Gavin stayed in San Jose and eventually started an even more 60’s influenced group called the Rantouls, while Brian stayed in Minn. fronting Skipper and the Sweet Faces as well as recording several solo demos. Travis of course continued producing and playing in several groups (most notably Nikki Corvette’s group). The band would tour Europe occasionally but fizzled. Recently however, the original line up of Gavin, Brian and Kathy, found themselves all in the Bay Area and reunited for the eighth annual Budget Rock fest opening up for old friends the Brentwoods and the iconic Mummies, as well as backing Raffaelli’s short lived alter ego, Donny Denim.
After the show spirits were high and there was buzz of more shows being a possibility. See also the Rantouls, Fever B, Skipper, the Sweet Faces . 3.
