The name comes from Clyde Stever's (manager) wife, Clara Stevers, who told them they needed a name change to go with the new group. Her son Rick was painting her bathroom a very trendy pink, he had it everywhere including his hair when his mother suggested they call the band "frosted pink" It was quite fashionable for a woman to have her hair frosted at the time.That didn't go down well, but she didn’t lose her train of thought. Sitting @ her kitchen table, she stared at their' Frigidare' refrigerator then blurted out, "Frigid Pink!" and then suggested dropping the "g" for a "j" and the name was born.
Always avoided this band......I suspect 'cos of their abominable name !! First listen now and wow......not brilliant but very evocative of it's time and better than a whole heap of other bands out there. Got some catching up to do.
