Justin Warfield: The Bio

Justin started his music career as a member of One Inch Punch, an alternative hip-hop/trip-hop duo based in LA. The group only released one LP, Tao of the One Inch Punch, but the album is now a cult favorite. It’s considered the forerunner for the later work of Warfield’s band, She Wants Revenge. One of the songs from Tao of the One Inch Punch was featured on the soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann’s film Romeo + Juliet One of Warfield’s most memorable guest appearances happened early in his career. In 1994, he was featured on “Bug Powder Dust,” a track released by Bomb the Bass, the highly successful project of producer Tim Simenon. Warfield provided vocals for the hip-hop-inspired track, which is another example of Justin’s ability to be a musical chameleon. “Bug Powder Dust” features a sample of a bassline by Weather Report member Alphonso Johnson. The track is considered by many to be one of the best singles released in 1994. In addition to collaborating with Bomb the Bass, Warfield has also worked with The Chemical Brothers, The Crystal Method, Placebo, The Freestylers, and more. He’s often featured on others’ songs as a guest vocalist, but he’s also done official remixes for songs by high-profile artists. Some of Warfield’s most notable remixes are of “Butterfly,” a hit song by Crazy Town, “Confide In Me” by Kylie Minogue, and “Joel” by The Boo Radleys. Justin has released two solo studio albums, one in 1993 and one in 2013. His first solo effort, My Field Trip to Planet 9, was released via Qwest Records and is primarily a hip-hop album. However, the record also draws heavily from 1960s psychedelic rock, jazz, and other genres. Many critics lauded the album as a unique blend of old-school hip-hop with unexpected genres. Warfield co-produced the record alongside QDIII and Prince Paul. Although he primarily made music with She Wants Revenge during the 2000s and 2010s, Warfield released a second solo album, Black Hesh Cult Mixtape, in 2013. The independently-released record has since gained a cult following. 

She Wants Revenge 

Warfield’s band, She Wants Revenge, was formed in 2004 in San Fernando Valley, California. Although Warfield had primarily made a name for himself in the rap and hip-hop genres, She Wants Revenge took a different sonic turn. They primarily drew inspiration from New Wave bands like The Cure and Bauhaus. She Wants Revenge was primarily fueled by the dual creative effort of Justin Warfield and Adam Bravin. However, the band also featured musicians Thomas Froggatt and Jason Payne, along with Scott Ellis as a touring drummer. With She Wants Revenge, Warfield wears multiple hats – he’s the lead vocalist, but he also plays keyboards and guitar. His bandmate Adam Bravin is equally virtuosic – he plays bass, keyboards, guitar, drum machine, and more. In addition, Bravin’s vocals can often be heard on She Wants Revenge songs.

These Things

The band’s first release was the EP These Things, which came out in late 2005. The song was released via Geffen records, and it introduced the world to She Wants Revenge’s unique blend of post-punk, new wave, and gothic rock, which is often referred to as Darkwave. The EP’s titular song peaked at No. 22 on the Billboard Alternative chart, setting up the band for a successful career to come. The These Things EP also features three other tracks – “Tear You Apart,” “Spend the Night,” and “Black Liner Run.”

She Wants Revenge

After These Things, the band put out their debut studio album, She Wants Revenge, in 2006. The album’s artwork features an unforgettable cover, which features the torso of a woman wearing white underwear on the front. The back cover of the album reveals that the woman has a large knife hidden behind her back. Critics praised the duo’s emulation of their new wave influences, with many reviewers of the album commenting on its similarities to the work of bands like Joy Division and The Cure.

This Is Forever

She Wants Revenge followed up their self-titled full-length debut with This is Forever. Released in 2007, the sophomore album’s cover art features a model wearing black underwear and hiding something behind her back, a callback to the artwork for the band’s first album. The back cover of the LP reveals that, instead of the knife from the first album, the model is holding a black rose behind her back. 

Valleyheart

For their final release as a band, Warfield and Bravin put out Valleyheart in 2011. The album was released via Five Seven Music, a label founded by Warfield and Bravin. 

Conclusion

After the dissolution of She Wants Revenge, Justin Warfield’s music career was far from over. Active since the late 80s, he still had plenty of inspiration to keep him going for decades. Following the release of She Wants Revenge’s final record, Warfield released Black Hesh Cult Mixtape, his first solo contribution to his discography since 1993. The record is Justin’s most recent album, but he has continued performing, writing, and producing since its release. With decades of music under his belt, he remains one of the most influential artists in the alternative rock world.   Sources: Justin Warfield | Discography | Discogs Adam Bravin Archives | SLUG Magazine  Bomb The Bass Interview | Classic Pop Mag
