Lucy LaMode of Killer Pussy Band

Lucy LaMode

Lucy was born in Phoenix in 1961. She is first-generation American and 100% Italian. Her passion in high school was theater and dance, but thats also where she first heard about a new thing called Punk Rock. When she graduated in May of 1979 at age 17 she was already involved in the local scene, hanging out at the Hate House and loitering in the Detox Lounge, a membership-only private club located in its basement.

Lucy performed in Killer Pussy from 1980 through 1992, and after hanging up her microphone she returned to her first love, the theater. She performed extensively in Phoenix, and also appeared in New York, where she starred in Wrath of Kali an off-Broadway play that mentioned Killer Pussy written by Leslie Mohn and directed by famed dramatist Lee Breuer, the multiple-Obie-winning founder of Mabou Mines theater company.

Lucy currently resides in Austin, Texas and has two sons and a poodle named Eggnog.
