"Blues is the teacher. Punk is the preacher." Such is the motto of this Californian band, who had the excellent idea in 1991, of confronting neurotic garage and black music. These veritable seismic stage performers are a four-piece band led by diva Lisa Kekaula – also known for her participation in Basement Jaxx -, and recorded their first albums on tape recorders in one session. With the passing of the years, the band line-up has changed as often as some people change shirts but the spirit remains the same: The BellRays, or when the Ramones meet Stevie Wonder, or when Led Zeppelin play a duet with Billie Holiday. Watch out, there’s a hurricane on the radar!
