We were raised in Arkansas by women, wolves and cassettes. We formed in 2000 in a cold basement in Olympia, Washington. Our last lp 'Standing in the way of Control' was recorded in Seattle with help from Guy Picciotto + Ryan Hadlock. We have two other lps, one ep and a few 7"s and 12"s under our belt.
We have also been remixed by Arthur Baker, MSTRKRFT, Playgroup, Tiga, Tronik Youth, Headman, Rory Phillips and Soulwax.
We have toured with No Bra, Panther, Pre, Les Georges Leningrad, Chromatics, CSS, Le Tigre and Cyndi Lauper. We have interviewed Yoko Ono and recorded a Peel Session (R.i.p. John Peel). We are feminists, artists, disc jockeys and writers. We have collectively spent 80% of our lives in airplanes (just to sweat on you). We love flowers and we believe firmly in raw power. We all currently reside in Portland, Oregon.
We believe in the power of Divine. We believe the best thing Elvis ever did was buy Bessie Smith a washing machine and the best thing Henry Rollins ever did (besides the 'Damaged' lp) was buy Roky Erickson a set of teeth.
We have just finished our fourth long player. We called it 'Music for Men'. Rick Rubin stroked his beard and smiled while we played drums. We were in Malibu for quite a while. We couldn't find any donuts there. We camped out in Bob Dylans old tour bus and wondered why we don't like Bob Dylan that much, actually.
We grew down in Arkansas, now we live in Doom Town (a.k.a. Portland). It storms there sometimes and unlike Malibu it is a great town for donuts. Perfection is not real. That is all. "It is art that makes life, makes interest, makes importance... and I know of no substitute whatever for the force and beauty of its process." - Henry James
