Since their first album release in 1990 New York City's seminal queens of punk, the Lunachicks, have been wowing audiences with their fierce brand of hard hitting rock-n-roll hooks, thick gritty guitars and heavy pounding beats. Spitting out their version of the world with outrageous spectacle and humor, the Lunachicks have earned themselves a devoted global fan base and legendary status.
For over a decade the ever touring Lunachicks recorded five full length studio CD’s, a live album, countless singles, videos, compilation cd’s, film appearances, and a feature length home video including their own short film “Nowhere Fast.” The Lunachicks have shared the stage with many rock-n-roll greats such as The Ramones, Joan Jett, The Offspring, Marilyn Manson, Deborah Harry, No Doubt, The Buzzcocks, Rancid, NOFX and The Go-Go’s to name a few.
The Lunachicks began making a name for themselves in NYC clubs like CBGB’s and The Limelight. After catching the interest of Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore of the band Sonic Youth, the then teenage Lunachicks were brought to London based record label, “Blast First.” The fledging band would go on record their first album ”Babysitters on Acid”. Furnished with titles like ”Makin’ It With Other Species” and “Jan Brady” the band combined their ‘70’s television sit-com heroes, hatred for tyrannical high school teachers and perverted love songs all set to music influenced by bands such as The Ramones, Black Sabbath, Kiss, The Clash, Blondie and Alice Cooper.
Over the years the band has changed labels along with having a few shifts in line up. Since the departure of rhythm guitarist Sindi, in 1997, the Lunachicks have remained a four-piece ensemble. Over the years Theo, Gina, Squid, and Chip, (drummer since 1994) have cut their teeth and honed their skills maturing into a tight sonic outfit without ever losing their satirical edge. Perpetually reinventing themselves always with versatility and style, you can count on the Lunachicks to push the boundaries of the status quo and continue to inspire thousands of young women worldwide to follow in their footsteps. The groundbreaking and unstoppable Lunachicks have certainly made an indelible mark in rock’n’roll history.
