Red Aunts/Come Up For A Closer Look
Red Aunts – Come Up For A Closer Look double LP
The Red Aunts were an all-female punk band that formed in 1991 in Long Beach, California, when Terri Wahl (guitar/vocals) recruited friends Kerry Davis (guitar/vocals), Debi Martini (bass/vocals), and Lesley Ishino (drums). Their brand of unfiltered music is toxic, taking a sharp claw to every riot grrrl cliché it can shred. After five albums, several years of touring, and a huge fan base, they called it quits in 1998. The girls recently decided it was time to wake people up and save the music with their unique form of ROCK. This is their “greatest hits” compilation, 'COME UP FOR A CLOSER LOOK' - a gatefold sleeve double album, complete with killer art and photos, plus liner notes by Red Aunts fan, Sasha Frere-Jones.
"The Red Aunts are nothing to mess with....wonderfully reckless rock."
