Appearing on Phil Taggart’s BBC Radio 1 show, who would later go on to called the band “The Rocky Horror Picture Show on steroids”. Following singles “Sissy Fists”, “Idle Crown” and “Victim Age” have gained similar applaud. With “Victim Age” hand picked by the legendary Iggy Pop for his Radio 6 show after calling the band “Strange, weird, dirty people from Liverpool”.

 

In 2018 the band appeared on Huw Stephen’s Radio 1 new music show with their Maida Vale live session. Having made BBC history with first all female crew. In the following interview the band announced that their debut album was on it’s way.
