Look Blue Go Purple

Biography

Wonderful and thoroughly under-rated all girl group in The Bats mold (though they well deserve recognition in their own right!).

With future Flying Nun stalwart Lesley Paris and co-founder of The 3D’s Denise Roughan, joined by Kathy Bull, Norma O’Malley (who went on to form Chug) and Kath Webster.

Lovely chiming guitars, silly songs and sweet vocals, quality pop all the way, and with a couple of genuine kiwi classics in their catalog, to boot (‘I Don’t Want You Any Way’ and the sublime almost-hit ‘Cactus Cat’).
