L7 was formed by Donita Sparks and Suzi Gardner in Los Angeles in 1985 and are
often considered part of the grunge movement. The punk rock duo were joined by
Jennifer Finch on bass guitar and Roy Koutsky on drums, with Koutsky leaving
shortly after and briefly replaced by Anne Anderson in 1988. After Anderson quit
the band, Demetra “Dee” Plakas became their permanent drummer.
Their 1992 album Bricks Are Heavy, produced by Butch Vig, was featured in
Rolling Stone’s 1999 list of “Essential Recordings of the 1990s,” and was their
most successful release. The 1992 single, “Pretend We’re Dead” spent 13 weeks on
the Billboard Alternative Songs chart, reached a high of #8 and made #21 in the
UK Singles Chart. Their fourth album, Hungry For Stink, was released in the
summer of 1994 and coincided with their appearance at Lollapalooza with other
notable acts of the era such as The Smashing Pumpkins and The Breeders. Finch
left the band during the recording of their next album. Sparks and Greta
Brinkman played bass on The Beauty Process: Triple Platinum after which Gail
Greenwood of Belly became the band’s full time bass player.
The band appeared in John Waters’ 1994 film Serial Mom, under the name Camel
Lips. Their songs have been featured on the soundtracks to films including
Natural Born Killers, Point Of No Return and Pet Sematary 2.
They have toured with and opened for artists including Bad Religion, GWAR,
Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Faith No More, Rollins Band,
Beastie Boys, Pearl Jam, Marilyn Manson, the Offspring and Ministry. By 2001 the
band stopped touring and they were on indefinite hiatus. They reunited in 2014,
and toured Europe and North America in 2015. In 2017 they released their first
new song in 18 years called “Dispatch From Mar-a-Lago.” That same year, Metal
Injection ranked L7 at #7 on their list of “10 Heaviest Grunge Bands.”
