Supersport 2000 was a Los Angeles-based rock/pop group, previously known as Magpie. Associated with a variety of bands that recorded at Poop Alley Studios, they were pillars of the Los Angeles alternative rock community in the early 90's. They came up alongside Weezer, that dog., Wax, and others. Band members Rod Cervera and Cherielynn Westrich also played in The Rentals.

Style

Supersport 2000 employed the same guitar-driven pop sound that Weezer and The Rentals made the use of, but with a more lo-fi, shoegaze affect. Perhaps their most notable musical difference from those bands is that they are significantly less hook-oriented.

History

Both of the band's official releases came out in 1995: Pink Slip and Supersport 2000. Members of the Weezer Fan Club received a free cassette of the former, which also included the songs "17 Braids" and "I Love Christian Stone." In 1998, the band contributed "Faster Kiddies" to the album Hear You Me! A Tribute To Mykel And Carli.

Post breakup

Since the band dissolved, Cervera has worked with Weezer numerous times in side musician and engineering/production roles. Westrich has pursued a career in the automotive industry. She appeared in the reality television show Overhaulin. In 2018, she unsuccessfully ran for a seat in the Iowa State House of Representatives, losing by 10%.
