JFA (Jodie Foster’s Army) is a hardcore punk band, born in 1981 out of Arizona and Southern California skateboard culture. The original members include Brian Brannon (vocals), Don “Redondo” Pendleton (guitar), Michael Cornelius (bass), and Mike “Bam-Bam” Sversvold (drums). Alan Bishop of Sun City Girls also played bass for awhile. The band was pivotal in the development of the skate punk and Skate Rock scenes. Over the years, the lineup has included many bass players and drummers but the core of Brannon and Pendleton has remained constant.
