Sissy Bar

The childlike lo-fi pop sextet Sissy Club formed in 1994 once the core duo of singer Joy Ray and guitarist Courtney Holt — the son of Can Holt, the writer from the Peter, Paul and Mary hit “Lemon Tree” — delivered an impromptu performance in a friend’s party in LA. After enlisting banjo participant Brad Kluck, bassist Anne Kadrovich, keyboardist Mary Ellen Mason, and drummer Patrick Simpson, the group started honing an audio constructed around Holt’s mandate how the people play whatever they feel just like, leading to an off-kilter fusion of nation, new influx, and waltz music. In 1996, Sissy Club released their debut LP, Statutory Grape, an archive highlighted with the band’s unusual cover of Snoop Doggy Dogg’s “Gin and Juice,” afterwards sampled by people from the Dogg Pound posse. Tracks for Peeps implemented in 1999.
