Team Dresch

Queercore revolutionaries Group Dresch formed in Portland, OR in later 1993, originally comprising bassist Donna Dresch (formerly of rings which range from Dangermouse to Dinosaur Jr.), vocalist/guitarist Jody Bleyle (also of Hazel), vocalist/guitarist Kaia Wilson (ex-Adickdid) and Spinanes drummer Scott Plouf. The group performed its first display on New Year’s Time 1994 minus a name, taking into consideration Magic Pet and Dyke Gain access to Street before finally agreeing on Group Dresch; after documenting their Kill Rock and roll Stars debut one “Hands Grenade,” Plouf exited, with some short-lived drummers completing the lineup prior to the addition of onetime Calamity Jane member Marci Martinez. 1995’s Personal Greatest, a brilliantly visceral fusion of punk-pop energy and lesbian empowerment, made an appearance jointly on Dresch’s Chainsaw label and Bleyle’s Candy-Ass imprint; following record’s conclusion Martinez left Group Dresch, and was changed by previous Vitapup drummer Melissa York for 1996’s Captain My Captain. After issuing a self-titled single LP Kaia still left the group, using the modified foursome of Dresch, Bleyle, Martinez and guitarist Amanda Kelly launching the Outpunk one “Deattached,” acknowledged to the brand new Group Dresch v.6.0 Beta.
