Babes In Toyland

 Babes in Toyland was an American all-female / trio formed in Minneapolis in 1987. Members included Kat Bjelland (guitar and vocals), Lori Barbero (drums) and Michelle Leon (bass). Michelle left the band in 1992 and was replaced by Maureen Herman. The band split and reformed throughout the 1990s, losing their record label when Maureen Herman left the band in 1996. Due to legal issues and make-ups and break-ups… the band played their last shoes in 2002 but stopped using the name (Babes In Toyland) after Barbero and Herman raised legal issues.

 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.
