80s Fresno Punk Scene History: The Frigidettes
Together for only a couple of years, starting in 1981, this all-girl lineup got to play some cool gigs and really helped the Fresno punk scene get started. Corrine and Gina started jamming together and Linda was going to play keyboards but decided to sing instead. Cathy was added on bass and they had a band. They had a new wave influence but were punk enough to get the attention of Maximumrocknroll with their punky, anti-war lyrics. The idea for their name came from a British all-girl punk band called the MODETTES and being frigid to society's norms. Their song, Turmoil was featured on the Maximumrocknroll Compilation, Not so Quiet on the Western Front in 1982.
