Megamall, Escape From Lizard City


Escape From Lizard City is a taught and concise rumination on the ancient, buried part of our psyche that feeds our (often maladaptive) defense mechanisms – what American novelist Tom Robbins calls the “reptile brain.” Clocking in at just over 17 minutes, these six songs’ sagacity belie their brevity. After all, the only way out of the Lizard Brain is through its synapses, and the only way out of Lizard City is through its sewers.

The three-piece-turned-four-piece began in 2019 and features Alie Lynch on vocals and bass, Dan On on lead guitar, Nir Av-Gay on drums, and Gal av-Gay on rhythm guitar. Veterans of the Vancouver’s music community, each member brings a sonic taste from their other projects: Supermoon, Non La, Maneater, and DUMB among others.

Kitty Prozac, None Shall be Afraid




Cathy Schutles is the mind, voice, and heart behind Kitty Prozac. The album navigates the maze of learning about everything from friendships and first loves, to trans-ness and coping mechanisms. The majority of the album was written while she was still in highschool — when everything felt like it was the end of the world. On the album’s combination of vulnerability and pomp, Schultes explains that “Kitty can never be lying-on-her-bed sad — she’s weeping, screaming, breaking things. Theatrical, almost. It’s a theatrical sad.”

Cathy Schultes is a bicycle mechanic by day and budding rock star by night as the brainchild behind Kitty Prozac, an experiment in collective catharsis five years in the making and showing no signs of stopping anytime soon. Kitty Prozac is Cathy’s safe place to process and share her innermost feelings.

Zach Fanta, I Ain’t Tha 1





Over the years Pat performed with many different bands, and even as those bands took breaks or broke up, he never stopped. Towards the end of his life, he was determined to share his passion and creativity any way he could. With that in mind, he used his drive and DIY-spirit to focus his energy on something that was purely Pat Placzek: Zach Fanta.

Zach Fanta is Pat at his most confident, unapologetic, and vulnerable, revealing a side of him rarely heard of in his previous musical projects. I Ain’t Tha 1, his posthumous debut EP, is a collection of songs about growing up, self-reflection, humiliation, and heartache.

And now, with the support of the PPLF, CiTR & Discorder Magazine are proud to announce the launch of Fanta Records and it’s inaugural release, Zach Fanta’s I Ain’t Tha 1. The album is available on cassette and digital download.
