Home / Biography / Guv’ner


The angular indie rock trio Guv’ner formed in 1993 as an outgrowth from the romance between singer/guitarist Charles Gansa and singer/bassist Pumpkin Wentzel. Following the few moved to NEW YORK, Wentzel provided a demonstration tape from the group’s off-kilter pop to Pussy Galore/Totally free Kitten member Julia Cafritz, whom she acquired known since primary school; Cafritz eventually transferred the tape to Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, who eventually released Guv’ner’s debut, Hard for Measy for you personally, on his Ecstatic Tranquility label. Following addition of full-time drummer Danny Tunick, Guv’ner agreed upon to Merge Information, which released the group’s sophomore work, The Hunt (co-produced by Cafritz and Gumball’s Don Fleming), in 1996. Spectral Worship implemented two years afterwards.
