Lisa Pifer

Lisa Pifer aka: Lisafer (born 1967) is an American bass player and song writer from Los Angeles. She has played in many punk bands, including U.X.A., Nina Hagen, D.I., Snap-her, and Lisafer. She is of German-Dutch descent.

Pifer grew up around musicians, most notably the Electric Prunes as her mother's close friend Pamela was married to James Lowe the Prunes' singer.The Prunes were her first look into the music world and Lisa took piano lessons and wrote songs as a child due to their influence. It was a permanent impression that has lasted.

During the early 1980s Lisa got into the punk scene and saw many of the pioneering punk bands perform and was forever hooked on theenergy that spewed out of them. The anger, the force, and the attitude.

It was in the 1990s that she joined Snap-Her & recorded her firstpunk songs. This all-girl line-up was featured on the cover of Flipside Fanzine. Many said it was due to their short skirts and garter belts. Soon after, they were signed to the New Red Archives label out of San Francisco and run by UK Subs guitarist Nicky Garratt, who released the first full-length Snap-Her album "It Smells, It Burns, It Stings".

Since 2004, Lisa plays with Dinah Cancer & the Grave Robbers which has morphed into the return of 45 Grave with guitar legend Rikk Agnew of Christian Death on guitar.
