Andy Krikun is the founder of Andy and the Rattlesnakes, one of the seminal bands from the Los Angeles new wave scene in the late 1970s and early 1980s. After the release of the compilation album Last Summer to Dance in 2006, the L.A. Weekly proclaimed, "Andy Krikun’s Rattlesnakes were one of the great lost, eclectic underground rock & roll bands in West L.A. in the early ’80s." In 2012, the original lineup of Andy and the Rattlesnakes reunited and began performing and working on new material. Their new EP, Last Chance Mission, is set to be released in December 2021, celebrating the 40th anniversary of their farewell gig at the O.N. Klub in Silverlake. Meanwhile, Andy continues to record and perform his unique mix of originals and covers and is currently working on his first solo album.
