    A contemporary band with a 50s/60s flare. Edgy and visceral in style but with a feel reminiscent of the Supremes or Betty Harris, with sometimes a touch of blues.
    LOVE this band.

    OMG I'd looove to see them!
    Never seen em touring around here though. At least not when I checked. But I should keep checking, because I'm sure they do. Just missed it.

    I love your av. :D

    I just checked again and their website is still under construction, as it's been.

    I "like" them on fb but it seems nobody keeps that up-to-date.
    Only thing that sucks about non-mainstream bands is it's hard to get updates/see em. But I'm determined. I love this band to fucking DEATH.
    And I find so many of their songs so relatable it's fucking scary. I swear, there are some songs that just summarize my life or feelings at the moment, or convey the feelings I'm feeling better than I ever could. ...And so sexy/beautifully.

    Loved the first Detroit Cobras LP and still spin it every once in awhile. Liked L7 early on as well. Heavy chick bands always made their way onto my CD player back in the 90's.
