Killer Pussy was formed in the spring of 1980 by eighteen-year-old Lucy LaMode and her friend Les à Go-Go, who was 24. Both were previously lead vocalists for The Roll-Ons, a short-lived Phoenix punk band. For musicians, they asked Leslie’s boyfriend, bassist Dash Assault, to join the group, along with drummer John E. Precious, who was already well-known as a member of local bands The Feederz, Consumers and Precious Secrets. Versatile guitarist and songwriter Gary Russell completed the lineup.
Inspired by the punk rock scene, which was exploding both locally and internationally at the time, all five founding members of Killer Pussy started writing original songs with a satirical edge. Robert X. Planet joined the band as composer and keyboard player in the fall of 1981. Later members include Dale B. Sari, who replaced Dash on bass in 1982, and Vanya Hautimacki, who took over on drums after John E. Precious fell ill and passed away in September of 1983. Percussionist / saxophonist / vocalist Ricardo Aguilar joined Killer Pussy in 1984.
Their first recording, 'Teenage Enema Nurses in Bondage', was an EP featuring four songs, released on their own Sho-Pink Records label in May, 1982. To follow up, Killer Pussy went on to release 'Bikini Wax', a full length, in August of 1983. The first 5,000 pressings of this 12 vinyl album featured deluxe, full-color packaging with an enclosed lyrics sheet and a reusable plastic slip cover; it is now an extremely rare collectors item. 1984 saw the release of the 'Moist Towelette / Boys!' single.
