Auntie Christ was formed in 1996 by Exene Cervenkova after X disbanded. Exene then joined forces with D.J. Bonebrake (her long-time drummer from X and solo projects) and Matt Freeman (Rancid/Downfall/Operation Ivy founder). Matt was a huge fan of X and had studied their music so closely, he was a perfect fit to the rhythm section. As always, Exene, (who wrote almost all the music and lyrics) is unflinching in her portrayal of the corrosive world around her, whether she's examining social hypocracy or getting inside thorny romantic issues.
