The Gits

Mia Zapata, Vocals
Joe Spleen, Guitar
Matt Dresdner, Bass
Steve Moriarty, Drums

        Formed in 1986, Seattle

Initially called the Snivelling Little Rat Faced Gits, shortening it to "The Gits", they set up at the 'Rathouse,' a Capitol Hill district house where the band rehearsed and also lived. They quickly earned a following on the local scene and were known for their wild, raucus live shows. 

<==Mia Zapata was brutally raped and murdered on the night of July 7, 1993, while walking home from a friend's house late at night.  On March 25, 2004, a jury convicted Jesus Mezquia of Zapata's murder and sentenced him to 36 years in prison.

The story of the Gits was recently made into a movie.  (Launch Trailer).
