Biography:
Very little is known from this curious all-female band from the mid 80s. Originally from Brighton, England, they issued a unique and controversial demo entitled “Oral Sex”, halfway between rock and heavy. And thus still considered part of the NWOBHM.

As its title suggests, the main subject of the record was purely sexual from a sado-masochistic and fetish perspective. No longer available, it was released only on vinyl and has not seen the light on CD.

While in the band “official” photo it appears only Bev, Monica (ex-Penthouse model) and Candy (who left the band by the time the record was released), there was a fourth component called Dee, being so “hidden” that leds to suspect that was a male drummer.

Monica always said that Lemmy (Motorhead) was who had taught her to play guitar. True or not, you can notice his influence in songs like “Head”.

Lineup:
Bev – Vocals
Monica – Guitar
Candy – Bass
Dee – Drums

Discography:
1985, “Oral Sex” (Demo)
