Lung Leg

Lung Leg Biography (Wikipedia)

Lungleg were an indie band from Glasgow, Scotland, formed in 1994, and disbanded in 1999. They were known for a sparsely recorded stop-start kind of music influenced by C86 and riot grrrl as much as by post-punk bands such as The Fall, Kleenex/LiLiPUT and The Fire Engines. Singer Jane McKeown is the sister of John McKeown from The Yummy Fur and the two bands often toured together.

The original lineup of McKeown ("Jane Egypt"), "Annie Spandex", Amanda Doorbar ("Jade Green") and Maureen Quim ("Mo Mo") released two EPs in 1994 and 1995, both of which were named "Single of the Week" by Melody Maker. Doorbar left in 1996, replaced by Todd. This second lineup recorded their debut album, Maid to Minx. The lyrics for the title track were written by Danny Saunders (now of Correcto).

Doorbar was also the drummer for labelmates Dick Johnson. When Quim quit Lungleg in 1997, they recruited her replacement, Phillipa, from Dick Johnson. This final lineup embarked on their sole tour of the US in 1998 with The Make-Up, and recorded two final singles, "Krayola" in 1998 and "Maid to Minx" (a new recording of the title track from the debut album) in 1999.
