Sputnik Slovenia has been a fixture on the local Denver and national music scene for more than 20 years. From his humble west coast beginnings in an outfit called Pagan Ritual (with Rory Lake of Cooler By The Lake), to his local frontman duties with the likes of Evil Hick, Negative Man(with Commander Adama of Agression), and Jet Black Joy(Best Ambassadors of Wet-Panty Rock- Best of Westword Magazine 2004)http://bestof.westword.com/bestof/award.php?award=37972&year=, Sputnik has kept busy combining humor, politics and ubiquitous music "stylings" to hone an act that has seen him rise to local cult hero status. But Sputnik has not limited himself to just the local scene. Having toured nationally and internationally with the likes of Agent Orange, Horace Pinker, and Doc Hopper, Sputnik has left an indelible mark on a medium that is supersaturated in mediocrity. 2007 saw the road rise with Sputnik as he was given the title “Best Happy Hour Troubadour” by Westword magazine for his acoustic "stylings" each Friday at The Larimer Lounge in Denver. http://www.westword.com/bestof/award.php?award=377910 Currently, Sputnik is in the studio working on his first solo acoustic cd.
