Frontman Jordy Birch (ex Pure, Guilty About Girls), drummer Slam T. Hide (ex of The KLF, Zodiac Mindwarp & The Love Reaction) and bassist Rob Edmonds (who designs posters for the likes of The Cure and Tom Waits) got together over a mutual love of 60’s surf music and punk.
They first released “Dead In The Middle,” “Havana” and “Baby, I’m Bored” in 2016 on Van City Records(VCR). All songs were recorded with a (mostly) one-take ethos, including the Steve Miller Band inspired “How Weird is Now,” and “The Death of Me,” with its Ramones-like “baby, baby, baby” dance-floor lyric that’s a euphemism for sex.
And lest anyone questions the band name, Jordy says “We all have strong women in our lives. It’s the three of us who are more like the 50s housewives - we get coffee together, we drink wine together, we eat Sunday dinner together… and we rock out together.”
