 The band formed in 2006 as a joke, played a house show and were asked to open for The Hiss on the strength of their performance. The name was chosen for its vulgarity – an irreverent take on abortions – though all band members are pro-choice.

Their playfulness continues into their songs, with titles such as ’Don’t Touch My Shit, Nestle In My Boobies and Mustache Ride. Despite their low expectations, no one seems to be dismissing them as a novely act. A live demo is in circulation and upcoming releases are due from Die Slaughterhaus and Rob’s House Records.

Girl In A Coma

Girl In A Coma

Female rock trio Girl in a Coma formed in San Antonio, Texas in 2001. While Nina is often referred to as “the female version of Morrissey,” the band as a whole has been compared to The Smiths, Interpol and the Pixies. Drawing heavily from these influences (the band’s name, Girl in a Coma, comes from the classic Smiths song “Girlfriend in a Coma”), the Girls have managed to create a sound and style that not only pays homage to their heroes, but is uniquely their own.

In early 2006, the Girls found themselves back in New York City where they were introduced to two of their biggest fans Joan Jett and Kenny Laguna of Blackheart Records.

Currently the girls have been touring with Tegan & Sara. Check out their tour dates here.
