Garage rock'n'roll band from Tokyo, Japan. Initially formed in 1986 as a quartet by sisters Sachiko (Drums) and Yoshiko "Ronnie" Fujiyama (Vocals) along with Rico (Guitar), and Yoshie (Bass). However, Yoshie was replaced by Kikako prior to recording their demo ("Golden Hits of..."). In 1990 Rico and Kikako left the band to form Sleaze Sisters. They were replaced by Akiko Omo on bass and Eddie Legend on guitar. Eddie, the only male member ever, left the band after about a year to form Mad 3. After his departure, Ronnie picked up all guitar duties along with vocal duties and the group added saxophone player Gaku. In 1992 they became a trio prior to touring Australia. Bass guitar was taken over again by Akiko, who also previously played in the band during the lineup changes in the early 90's. Guitarist Aya joined the band for several months in 1995. Yoshiko "Yama" Yamaguchi took over bass duties from Akiko before their first big Japanese tour in 1996. Ronnie briefly took a break from the band in 1997 and released the solo single "Coney Island". The band toured extensively during 1998 and 2002 but did not produce any new recorded material.

The band appeared in the movie "Kill Bill: Volume 1" in 2003 after director Quentin Tarantino heard their CD in a Tokyo clothing shop in 2002. The final film features the studio track "Woo Hoo" and it also appears on the soundtrack. The DVD bonus features include a full live performance of "Walk Like Jayne Mansfield" and "I'm Blue" that were recorded during the filming of the movie. The band during the filming was Ronnie, Yama, and Sachiko, however, Akiko played bass on the actual studio recording of "Woo Hoo" used in the film.

In 2004 Yama left the band and Akiko returned to play bass. However, there was a brief period of touring with Saki on bass between the switch. After that the band did not release any more material and only occasionally played live. The band has gained momentum again after releasing some live and studio recordings on Third Man Records in 2011. Since then they have been mostly been releasing covers, older unreleased studio recordings, and re-recorded/alternate versions of older material through Time Bomb Records (2). Some of the material features Akiko on bass and some features Yama on bass. In 2018 they released a song for the video game Steel Rats. A single containing songs recorded with Bloodshot Bill was released in 2019.
