Nightclubbing with the Stillettos

This week's edition of Pat Ivers and Emily Armstrong's Nightclubbing column on the East Village Local concerns an early band on the CBGB scene - Stillettos Fads, or as they are more commonly referred to, The Stillettos...you know, the band Debbie Harry was in before Blondie. The band also included Tish & Snooky, the sisters who would go on to found the Manic Panic empire, as well as become an important part of the comedy band, Sic F*cks.

"In the beginning, there was the Stillettos: Debbie Harry, Elda Stilletto and Roseanne Ross. As flashy and trashy as glam bands got, they played CBGBs so early in the game that the Ramones opened for them. By 1975, Debbie Harry had gone on to form Blondie. Elda transformed the Stillettos into the Stilletto Fads, with Tish and Snooky Bellomo as back up singers." Continued here.
