Stepford 5

One of the earlier Christchurch acid-rock groups Celia Patel (aka Celia Pavlova / Mancini) On Vocals And Lead Guitar, along with Sharon Billesdon (Drums), Joanne Billesdon (Guitar), and Reta La Quesne (Bass / Vocals). Though the Stepford 5 only released two (now rather rare) European-issued 7″ – one a split with Japanese act Teengenerate, their members would later resurface in the Axel Grinders, Snort, and King Loser.

The Stepford 5 were rougher, rawer and dirtier than their successive groups, with Patel’s vocals in particular being much more harsh than her Nancy Sinatra style chantreuse approach in the Axel Grinders and King Loser.
