O Mighty Isis

O Mighty Isis exemplified everything that was good in the early 90’s indie rock scene. Catchy guitar riffs, fun lyrics, alternating tempos between slow & fast, and unusual cover songs. There shows were always a good time and it was always cool to see what new guitars Chris came up with for the shows. I really believe that if Philadelphia had a big indie label like K or Teanbeat – O Mighty Isis would be revered in the same way as bands like Beat Happening, Unrest and Mecca Normal. Included below is their cd Angel Brite and a cd comp which includes their 7 inch. Sophy and/or Chris went on to have numerous bands after O Mighty Isis with a variety of styles: Including Wastoid (British Metal), Slobber Mountain Boys, Illegitimate Sons and Daughters,The Pine Barons (Blue Grass) Also La Resistance. Chris now playing guitar and vocals for  Creem Circus which has covered a few Mighty Isis tunes among the Glam.
Any guitar or bass players that read this should go check out Chris’ shop Dipinto Guitars

Zine that came with the 7 Inch (I think)
