Country of origin:
Type of music generally:
Most recent release, Perfect Impossible, 1994. The band reports: "as of late 2003 band members are considering a possible reunion in 2004 which may include members of previous lineups. Kevin and Linda Roy currently reside on the east coast where they are working on a new disc for 2004 release under the same band name which features new members as well as Jeff Harmon from the original Jehova Waitresses, Jonathan Segel of Camper Van Beethoven on violin and Kramer on keys."
The Bangles, The Sundays, Belly
I just realized that haven't plugged Jehova Waitresses enough. Definitely check them out. At times, they're ectoish. Other times, they are faster and harder. Although Kevin is a great guy--and one of the lead-"people" of Jehovah Waitresses--I do like Linda's voice. It's a better Susannah Hoffs (of The Bangles). Most of their songs are written by Kevin and Linda, with much help from the rest of the group. Great group, and if in the Cleveland area, definitely check them out. (5/95, Matt.Bittner)
Recommended first album:
Wide in the U.S. on release
Kevin Roy--guitar, vocals
A must-buy for all people. Most on ecto know they're friends of mine, but this disc takes them to new heights. Ectoish, if there ever was a band. (Matt.Bittner)
