1120 PRESS: Thank you for speaking with us and congratulations on the band and its first show! How’s everything going as you prepare to step foot into the scene Friday at Timeless Babez and how’s the band feeling?  


CLAIRE: Fuckin killer. I've been trying to put this band together since I was 12!

RITA: I have missed that feral feminine energy.

KIM: It doesn't feel like we're stepping into the scene because we've all been in/adjacent for years.

JESS: Really psyched! Feeling so much good energy going into this project.


1120: How did you guys end up on the bill? 

JESS: We wanted our first show to be with good friends!

KIM: It might be our first show, but it feels like a homecoming to me.


1120: Being a new band, can you tell us how the group formed and how long you’ve all been playing together? (Also, are any of the band's members current, or former, members of other bands from the scene?)


CLAIRE: I've been asking Rita to jam for five years.

JESS: So Kim moved back to Buffalo from Minneapolis, and within six months she was on board and jammin in Claire's basement. Then after a year of continuous attempts, Rita finally found some free time. 

THE BAND: Thanks to Craigslist we were able to stalk Jessica and get her to come hang for about a month later. 


1120: How would you describe your sound?

THE BAND: Crass, New Order, and The Donnas walk into a gay bar...


1120: So as the band heads into 2024, what’s its aim in the new year?

THE BAND: More shows, make a rad EP, and maybe... a music video?


1120: Thank you again for speaking with us, and Happy Holidays. Is there anything you want to add that we haven’t touched on?

THE BAND: We want more femmes to be making music together and to see us unapologetically taking up space on stage.

JESS: I'm tired of men on the scene explaining to us how to use our instruments. Shut the fuck up.
