Feeling a bit camera shy


Once, there were three nervous gothy/glammy/garagey kids who left the beach/farm towns of Monterey and Salinas, Ca to let the pre-White Stripes/Please Kill Me big-city hipsters taste the fruits of small town isolation. Along the way they have played the most beautiful cities of Europe and Canada and the ugliest cities of Mexico, toured with The Rapture, The Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The International Noise Conspiracy, the Von Bondies, The Donnas, The Ponys the Dirtbombs and the Makeup and have been compared to The Stooges, Joy Division, The B52s, The Birthday Party and the Rolling Stones. Recently, their song "Born To Be Dizzy" was featured in the closing sequence of Asia Argento's latest film "The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things".
