Track Listing

1. Maid To Minx
2. Juanita

Lung Leg started in 1994 when four girls from Glasgow wanted an excuse to dress up and play razor sharp, minute long pop songs and have a laugh. The four girls soon became big favourites with the crowd at the 13th Note, home of early Bis, Delgados, Urusei Yatsura, etc. After releasing a couple of singles on the Piao label, which both got single of the week in Melody Maker, they recorded a session for John Peel.

1996 started with Lung Leg playing shows with Sonic Youth, Kenickie, Make Up, Bikini Kill and Bis, as well as another Peel session, but during the summer Jade decided to leave the band to persue her career. She was replaced by Todd, ex drummer of label mates Heck.

In November 1996 they recorded their debut album, "Maid to Minx", which was released on Vesuvius in July 1997. During this period Mo-Mo decided to leave because touring was getting too much for her.

The rest of July was spent touring the U.K. with Glasgow based band the Yummy Fur to promote the album and the new single, "Right Now Baby", which was played by Jo Whiley on her Radio One afternoon show. At this time Kill Rock Stars released a compilation CD and a 10" of Lung Leg's first two singles exclusively for the American market. They ended July with headlining the Sunday Mail stage at the T in the Park Festival and an album launch at King Tuts Wah Wah Hut. They followed this with a session and interview on Radio Scotland Beat Control and a show at Edinburgh's Plant Pop Festival.

September was spent looking for a new guitarist and they were lucky to find the perfect person for the job, Phillippa, a good friend and ex guitarist of all rock band Dick Johnson. In December 1997 they went back on the road, this time as tour support for Washington DC's Make Up. They then finished the year with a sell out show in London with the Yummy Fur.
