Not much is known about Death Valley Girls. It's part of their allure;
shrouded in mysterious overtones and a ghoulish blend of bluesy psychedelia and '60s garage fuzz.
Death Valley Girls are proto-punks of the modern age; so raw that their sound seems inspired by the 'caveman rock' of the Troggs.
Their debut "Street Venom" (Burger Records) doesn't seem to fit any neatly constructed genre; it's stripped-down rock 'n' roll with epic compositions that venture into trippy acid rock territory.
Death Valley Girls...the rebellious spirit of a motorcycle gang on the run.
