An all-female garage punk band with an irreverent, fun-loving attitude, the Coathangers play purposefully simple, hooky tunes that borrow from vintage girl group sounds and contemporary teen pop acts as much as the old-school punk and new wave outfits that inform their sound. Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, the Coathangers were formed in 2006 by guitarist and singer Julia Kugel (aka Crook Kid Coathanger), bassist and singer Meredith Franco (aka Minnie Coathanger), keyboardist and singer Candice Jones (aka Bebe Coathanger), and drummer and singer Stephanie Luke (aka Rusty Coathanger) -- Kugel and Franco were working together in a dress shop that specialized in wedding gowns and prom dresses; Jones and Luke were earning their living as bartenders. While they could barely play their instruments, they were eager to take the stage, and after playing their first show at a house party, the Coathangers soon made their proper stage debut opening for the Hiss, and their sense of fun soon won over hometown audiences.
