Sea Hags

Autumn Meredith/Leather Trio Productions/San Francisco
One summer night in 1985, me, Cindy and Colleen all went to see the Sea Hags at the VIS club on Divisadero. Cindy was just out of high school and a major misbehaver. Colleen was only 16, and even wilder. I was a sweet and quiet girl of 18. It was Cindy and Colleen who caused all the fuss and made noise, not me. ("Stop lying, Autumn, you were a brat too!" -Cindy). Was not.

Back then the Hags were just a trio ("a leather trio!" -Cindy again), but they sounded basically the same as they do now with cool crunching guitars and wild songs. You can hear for yourself on their debut album just out on Chrysalis. My favorite song is "Doghouse" cause it just crunches. Colleen's favorite is the rockin' "Someday," a cool SVT cover. Cindy likes that riff rock stew, "Back to the Grind." And all three of us think the singer Ron is a stone fox. ("So girls of America you better beware, but since we saw 'em first we got rights." -Colleen). Got that? So everyone rush out and get the Sea Hags cool album. Hi to Tom Silver and Geina Horton at Chrysalis.
