Doctor Striker
Paul Striker
Guinevere Q

Chris Meeder
-from Oakland, CA

-who are Doctor Striker?
Imagining a sonic world that diverged from our own in 1991, Doctor Striker shreds and roars over heavy beats, guitar riffs, bass lines, and synth hooks. He brings the classical and punk worlds together with training and discipline to electronic pop to create a political, personal and incisively optimistic brand of music.
Doctor Striker's lyrics, brutally simple in the punk tradition, are inspired by his upbringing in recession-battered metro Detroit and subsequent life in Oakland, California. His formal training in economics and history at the University of Michigan bring an uncommon depth and historical context. Doctor Striker exclaims: "If you fight the man, you are the man If I'm rich, no one can touch me. / If I'm rich, I am the law. / But I'm poor, I don't care. / I am poor, I am free."
Doctor Striker teamed up with Chris Meeder, Guinevere Q, and Young Sun for the live shows to create a full sensory, theatrical live experience. He crawls across the floor shredding and chanting while Guinevere plays the bass and climbs tables. Chris slams the power on his guitar while Young Sun drives the drums.
Doctor Striker is celebratory and critical, insightful but ecstatic. By committing to a pop ethos, he avoids joining the half-baked rocker-philosopher tradition. Indeed, if Doctor Striker believes in anything, it's in the eternal truth of heavy riffs. Though he's not shy about his vision of utopia:
"Going in to work / We party till it hurts / Sleeping at the desk. / Dream, Party, Rest."

-“With roots in poetry, jazz, and rock, The Wyatt Act crosses lots of boundaries. The quick changes and unusual instrumentation blend perfectly with Guinevere’s slam poetry-derived lyrics.” – SF Sonic

“Guinevere Q has long been known ’round these parts to be a fast-talking, no-nonsense, down-to-party mo-fo with no worry of running out of things to say. ” – Evan Karp, SF Weekly

“…a unique band with a distinct sound and character, electrifying performances, and interdisciplinary roots.” – Lex Talks Music

“Exceptional musicianship and attention to musical detail, all while not giving a monkey’s ass about limitations and boundaries, both musically and lyrically.” – Jamsphere Magazine

“This is just excellent music all the way around.” – Stepkid Magazine

“’20 Motherfuckers’ speaks to the heart of being an artist in San Francisco through the last bunch of years, as the streets have increasingly emptied of the beautiful freaks who once defined the arts scene, replaced by people staring at their phones. It’s partly, but never completely angry and outraged. The anger is tempered by its own playfulness. It’s the kind of song that reminds you that smashing the system can be energizing and fun too.” – Annie Bacon, SF Critic
